Andrew has two years full-time teaching experience as a Maths teacher at Newton Prep in Battersea. It is one of London’s top independent prep schools, preparing children for schools such as Eton and Westminster to name a few. Andrew knows the 11+ and 13+ systems very well, tailoring preparations to suit the entrance requirements of each school.
Andrew has over 7 years of tutoring experience. His experience ranges from 7+ to A-level so he is very adaptable! He has worked successfully with children in their final preparations before exams as well as children who are more focussed on the long-term goal of improving their Maths skills. The diversity of Andrew’s previous clients means he is well equipped to meet the demands of new clients and tailor his approach accordingly.
Andrew’s tutoring style reflects his practice in the classroom. He focuses on coaxing out the misconceptions, why they may be there and addresses them in turn. Andrew prides himself on being able to lead children to the answer without spoon-feeding them. This guiding process is fundamental to his practice as it allows his students to identify and rectify their own misconceptions. He believes this is where the most effective learning happens.
Andrew is tutoring full-time currently with a view to taking on more students who want to progress their maths skills and exam technique. He has made the switch from full-time teaching to do what he enjoys most; teaching in its purest form.
Andrew achieved an A grade in Maths at A-level. He studied Sport and Exercise Science at Loughborough University before completing a Master’s degree in Sports Science with a focus on biomechanics. Andrew has a PGCE with a maths specialism from Roehampton University.
Andrew spends most of his free-time training, with ambitions to become an Olympic athlete.
