Full-time private tutor since 2016, tutoring online and in-person since
2012, fully qualified and experienced classroom teacher. I teach Maths
from Key Stage 1 to A2 Level, and English at Primary level.
I have taught 3,000+ hours of one-to-one tuition since I began in 2012. My students have been overwhelmingly successful, going on to study subjects such as Medicine and Engineering, in universities such as Oxford and Cambridge.
My overall philosophy is for the student to learn as much as possible as efficiently as possible,
by setting the right questions in the right order. I am very thorough in my approach; I copy
questions from the official textbook where available, check that they teach to the level of the
exam questions by checking the past papers, and create my own questions to bridge any gaps
that may occur. I am told by parents that my students find me friendly and personable. I
regularly tutor 25+ hours per week. I am also an official exam marker.
I cover all exam boards for Maths from Key Stage 1 to 5, including GCSE and A Level, and all exam boards for English at Primary level. I have taught Edexcel, AQA, OCR, MEI, SQA and WJEC. I teach both Foundation and Higher level GCSE Maths.
I have taught and continue to teach students with physical and mental health issues, such as partial deafness and blindness, Depression and ADHD.
My son really enjoys Dara's lessons. :-)
Dara makes difficult subjects fun and easier to grasp. I don’t think my son would agree to do this work with anyone else
