I became interested in Maths and Physics whilst studying for the then O levels. My teacher who also became my tutor was insistent on teaching these two, very logical subjects on the principal of understanding them rather than learning verbatim. I believe my passion for them stemmed as a result of better understanding. I used this to tutor my daughter for GCSE when her Maths teacher was replaced by cover teachers for the best part of the GCSE finals due to illness. I worked closely with her for Maths, Physics and further Maths where she achieved A* for all of them. With this deep understanding in Maths she went on to do A level Maths and continued the same level of achievements. I think it’s important to firstly identify any areas of the subject the students find difficult as a focal point but also to methodically work through the whole syllabus focusing on understanding. This should be backed up by lots of practice to remember the foundations laid during the tutoring.
