I am a fully qualified teacher offering tuition for Maths A Level, Further Maths A Level, IB Standard and Higher Maths, STEP and Oxbridge Entrance exams
Lessons can be regular weekly lessons, a few top-up lessons in the run up to exams or Summer School lessons to catch up and get ahead of the course.
Currently all of my tuition is done on-line, due to COVID restrictions. In other times I can offer both on-line and face-to-face tuition.
We are now all fairly familiar with online meetings and lessons. I personally use zoom and a separate whiteboard as well as many detailed notes, adapted to individual topics and exam boards. These are all available to students after their lessons.
What are the benefits of online tuition?
It doesn’t matter where you are. Time and time again I have been contacted by students that live in areas that simply don’t have any experienced tutors, and they have been amazed by how easy it now is for them to get high quality one-on-one teaching. This means I’ve been able to help out students from small towns in England to students on the other side of the world!
A lot of possibilities are opened up with timetables. Students can have a lesson in their homework time, their free periods if they are in sixth form, or whenever else they like! It is no longer limited to just the traditional after school lesson.
Students can choose the best possible tutor. Students now aren’t limited to the tutors in their area, and don’t have to settle for a mediocre tutor just because they live close to them. They can choose exactly the right person for their needs, wherever they are in the world.
Punctuality. While tutors and students do their best to get to lessons on time, there are external factors at play that are uncontrollable, like traffic. With online tutoring this completely vanishes and its easy to be on time for the lesson 100% of the time.
The student is more relaxed. During face-to-face tuition, some students feel the pressure of someone watching over them while they work. With online tuition, if needed the student can have a pad of paper with them for rough work and only write on the whiteboard when they are confident with what they have done.
