I teach Maths up to GCSE Higher Level and I am very familiar with the conventional GCSE and iGCSE syllabuses and exam style as well as with Functional Skills, Maths at Levels 1 and 2.
I specialise in tutoring students with dyslexia, dyscalculia and autistic spectrum disorders. Many of these students have good spatial skills and these can used as a useful route into understanding maths concepts. I also enjoy the challenge of teaching those approaching their Higher Level GCSE who may be aspiring to go on to do Maths A'Level .
I have a good deal of experience teaching children from 10-11 (Year 6) up to their early 20s. This includes teaching for Common Entrance (13+), GCSE, iGCSE and Functional Skills Levels 1 and 2.
I work as a volunteer at "The Rendezvous", the Youth Resource Centre, in Sherborne so have regular access to up-to-date information regarding Exam Board and syllabus changes as well as other support which is available to young people in the area.
I have 3 sons of my own, 2 of whom have dyslexia and/or autistic spectrum disorders, so I understand and empathise with many concerns parents have about their children's education.
I try various different approaches to engage students in their learning to make it fun and interesting and I work on building self-confidence. I look forward to helping your child to move forward with their Maths.
Emma is a great tutor with a caring enthusiastic style. My daughter has had two lessons with Emma and thoroughly enjoys her one to one lessons. My daughters confidence is building after each lessons. Highly recommended
Would recommend Emma to anyone, she has a lovely caring way with my granddaughter & has helped her understand the maths she finds difficult.
