About the lesson
I try and use an approach of making the student feel comfortable first. It is good to speak to them as a peer and not to be aloof. I think the importance is on destroying the boundary between student and pupil that has possibly inhibited the student's growth.
My lessons are geared towards anybody that wants to learn maths in any sort of capacity, I always ensure I work at your pace and can adapt easily to fit my student's needs.
I find that increasing a student's confidence is the key to them flourishing in Mathematics, so concentrating on building from the basics and the little successes can often be very effective.
A typical lesson would include a tailored recap written by me that would help jog the student's memory. I would then try and introduce new ideas or areas of the syllabus they are struggling with. At the end I set a homework task or something for the student to look over until the following lesson.
As time progresses, the lessons become more tailored to the student's needs. In particular identifying weaknesses to build on and strengths to consolidate.

About Louis
I am a Maths student at Newcastle University in my 3rd year of a 4 year masters. I currently tutor a 16 year old at GCSE level. I have a passion for mathematics as shown by my A grades at A level in both maths and further maths. I can teach just about any branch of mathematics but really my passion is in number theory and pure mathematics. I have up to date knowledge on the GCSE and A level syllabus as I have only recently sat these myself.
