I have experience in teaching and preparing students for GCSE Maths examinations at both Foundation and Higher levels for AQA, Edexcel and OCR exam boards. I also have experience in tutoring for functional skills exams and the AQA Level 2 Certificate in Further Maths.
These sessions take their lead from the student- what they or their teachers have identified as concepts to revisit. The sessions focus in depth on just one or two concepts, teasing out difficulties and taking the opportunity to get familiar with questions from past exam papers.
Flexibility is key- whilst I plan ahead for which concepts we will cover, if something arises that week that the student wants to revisit, that will be accommodated where possible. I have a range of suitable textbooks and other resources which give lots of opportunity for practise, my emphasis being on students talking and doing as much as possible. I can usually obtain appropriate past papers and mark schemes to aid with exam techniques. I provide tools such as a scientific calculator, geometry set etc but it does help for the student to become familiar with using their own tools that they will be using in the exams if possible.
