GCSE Maths Specialist

My name is Jessica Neilson. I have dedicated my working life to teaching - more than 20 years. I know the many challenges that the students face when it comes to Maths and I know how to work with them on a one to one basis to improve in the subject. I have been an examiner for one year and have been tutoring for the past three years. Maths is more than just a subject, it’s a life skill and the more you engage with the subject in a positive manner the better your life experience becomes. My sessions involve a bit of knowledge acquisition, problem solving, and application skills in relation to a particular topic. I also provide focused exam preparation sessions to the students who need this. I am very flexible and will adapt my lessons to the needs of your child. Most of all I will try to tailor my sessions in a fun and engaging manner so as to promote knowledge retention which is essential to exam success…


Hello, My name is Lana and I have been an Ofsted registered childminder since October 2012 graded Good in all my inspections. I also have some experience as a tutor helping young children with English as a second language. In my childminder setting I comply with Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework and successfully implement it through play and educational games as well as homework support for the school age children. Also being a mother of 3 children who are all independent learners now I have in depth knowledge of Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 Primary School material. Teaching and engaging young children is what I enjoy the most giving them support and encouraging the desire to learn and explore
