About Hazel

Hello ! I am a Mum to 3 almost grown-up children. I love Maths, and enjoy helping others with their problems in Maths. I have a teaching qualification, but have worked over the last 10 years or so as a Teaching Assistant, mostly in Maths classes, in various High schools., working with year 7s all the way to year 11s. Before that, I was doing private Maths tuition for about 6 years while my kids were very young. I enjoy private tuition because it gives the student extra time to iron out their difficulties. My most memorable moment was a student coming in for his lesson with a huge beam on his face - he'd just come TOP in his class in an algebra test !
Outside of work, I enjoy cycling, Badminton, swimming and growing vegetables and fruit. I'm also involved in my local Church.
Why pick me ? I'm passionate about Maths, and helping others to understand it. I've worked a lot with those who find Maths difficult, and am patient with all my students !

Hazel's Experience

I have done alot of private tuiton while starting a family and also while caring for elderly parents. I have covered Key Stages 3 and 4, though have ventured in to year 12 for a couple of students who wanted to carry on their Maths tuition with me in to AS level. I really enjoy 1-1 teaching, and enjoy seeing pupils progress. I like to make sure students understand properly, and make sure they feel able to say when they don't understand anything.

Hazel's Approach

I like to be led by the student - so if there's any topic they want to do, or anything from their school lessons they haven't understood, I like to cover that. I often find that having started one topic, it opens up a lot of other topics that is obvious that the student needs help on.
I like to set homework, and expect students to do it. I like to be open and flexible, and create an atmosphere where it's ok not to know, not to understand, and quite ok to admit it, and ask for help.
I like students' parents to feel that they can be involved, to keep up-to-date with how their child is doing with the extra tuition.
