One-to-one and/or group maths tutoring for all ages. Can be delivered in my OR your own home, covering North Down, Antrim and the North Coast area.
The best way to learn maths is through understanding and relating the concepts to simple 'real life' problems. I won't just TELL you how to deal with fractions, for example (quite a complex area of maths which many dislike), I will HELP you understand them.
I do not teach 'maths tricks'. This, in my opinion, is the lazy teacher's approach. If this approach is adopted the learner will get lost as there will soon be too many 'tricks' for any learner to try and remember without the understanding.
When learning maths it is as important to know 'WHY' the calculation is done the way it should be, just as much as knowing 'HOW' it is done. This helps to alleviate the fear of maths that many people have, and helps them to remember the techniques that they are taught.
"mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas" ~Albert Einstein
I have developed a programme that will, first, consolidate the foundations of mathematics through understanding. I will then continue to help learners further develop their mathematical skills so that they can problem solve with confidence, ease and enjoyment.
