Maths and Numeracy support for courses covered in Scottish secondary schools and Further Education colleges. More details of courses available in Scotland can be found on the Scottish Qualifications Authority SQA website and Education Scotland.
Programmes of study outlined by the Curriculum for Excellence encourage a cross-curricular approach in the development and use of maths and numeracy skills. Specialist support is provided for students doing the SQA National 4, which has school-based assesment and the externally assessed SQA National 5.
I provide a stimulating learning environment that encourages students to build up their confidence in Maths. In particular, some pupils have difficulty concentrating at school and have benefited from my one-to-one support for learning in terms of increased confidence and critical skills leading to satisfaction with their exam performance.
Teaching and learning methods employed are those that suit each pupil's learning styles. My students sometimes like to work in small groups. Resources used for active learning in maths include online and paper-based materials, textbooks such as Teejay, Heinemann and Maths in Action and past exam papers.
For instance I have worked successfully with children and young people with Attention Deficit disorder ADHD and/or specific learning difficulties Dyslexia and the Autistic spectrum disorder Asperger's syndrome.
