Maths Private Tutor: Daniel
This tutor’s profile is reflective of the high standard of subject-specific private tutor we introduce. When you contact us, we will recommend a shortlist of tutors who will be carefully matched to your child’s learning style and academic requirements.
I am a relatable and experienced maths teacher with a solid approach.
I teach very methodically in a “brick by brick” manner. I always teach in a way that builds on the last lesson and make sure to do on the spot revision tests to make sure previously learnt material isn’t lost. I am known for my in depth, color coded cheat sheets that summarise topics in a clear and easy way that – when needed – I give to students as a nice reference for practicing exam questions. I not only tailor each lesson and overall structure to optimise performance, but also provide various techniques to convert daunting learning areas into fun and rewarding challenges.
I inspire students to want to impress me, which often gives them a newfound sense of self motivation that continues permanently.
My goal with tutoring is to catalyse independence, not dependence as most tutors do, in each student by showing students their own potential through helping them reach their academic goals. I always endeavour to be the best tutor I can be and provide the best results for my students.
