Mathematics can seem confusing but by spending time unpicking the underlying patterns and rules it is possible to build up more confidence to approach more challenging problems and ideas.
- we learn by reflecting on our mistakes and misconceptions.
- a person's mathematical ability is not fixed: everyone can make progress.
- everyone should have the opportunity to grapple with problems that they do not yet know how to solve.
- everyone should have the opportunity to succeed mathematically.
- mathematics has order and structure and can be beautiful.
- exchanging questions and ideas is an important part of working mathematically.
- there are many ways of working mathematically.
- mathematics is a worthwhile, interesting intellectual activity.
I am a mathematics teacher who has taught middle and high school students for 7 years. I qualified in the UK and have taught internationally. I have helped students achieve excellent grades in public exams and pass entrance tests.
I have tutored many students over the year, sometimes with an an aim like an exam or test, other times to build confidence and strengthen the foundations of mathematics. All my students have improved in their confidence and mathematical ability and I have seen many successes with exams and scores.
