It is important that students demonstrate a secure understanding of basic concepts in mathematics and appreciate how these concepts relate to and build on each other, rather than using 'the rules of maths' in a procedural way.
Students are encouraged to use different approaches when tackling problems, progressing to the next stage when they are ready. I aim to stimulate mathematical thinking, address misconceptions and instil an awareness of learning and thinking processes
Students consolidate their understanding through low-risk mini quizzes, multiple choice questions, retrieval practice and homework.
Students are asked to communicate their ideas in a non-threatening environment. The aim is to develop resilient students who demonstrate high levels of confidence and ability in mathematics.
Tutoring from KS2 all the way to KS4
Key Stage 2
From Years 3 to 6, students become confident in mathematics: adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. They develop their mental ability, solving problems involving measurement, money and time.
Key Stage 3
Students from Years 7 to 11 are usually placed into sets based on their mathematical ability with set changes made when necessary. Students are taught through four key areas; number, algebra, geometry & measure and statistics
Key Stage 4
At GCSE, students consolidate their understanding. They explore key areas such as algebra, ratio & proportion and geometry. Throughout, students investigate, discover and development their Mathematics
