MisterMaths provides personal tutors to learners ranging from year 5 up to GCSE. We also tutor adults and trainee teachers who are looking to take their QTS numeracy test.
Our director is Baber Hafiz, who has wide experience with students of all ages from 6 to 60. Baber began tutoring while still an undergraduate at the University of Manchester. After graduating he worked within the private sector for a few years before moving back to his roots and training as a Maths Teacher. His focus on using visualisation in Mathematics, as well as embedding Neuro Linguistic Programming techniques proved highly successful. He now currently teaches Maths to challenging and borderline students across Camden, Hackney and Islington. Additionally Baber works with Adult learners who want to improve their Mathematics or wish to progress into teacher training.
It may surprise you to know but not all Maths teachers make good personal tutors. We not only provide excellent Maths provision but our personal tutors also have specialised training. Additionally our personal tutors have years of experience in both public and private sector companies, ensuring we provide a holistic approach. Alongside tutoring, we help boost tutee confidence, build rapport, teach independent learning, offer interview techniques, and much more. Many of our tutors have SEN training.
In short, you gain not only a Maths tutor, but someone with a wide breadth of knowledge and experience in one innovative package.
At MisterMaths we understand that Students do not learn learn in the same way. Some may lack confidence and can often be overlooked in a class of thirty. Others may miss key points and become disruptive rather than admit they do not understand. Erstwhile a few may just find the rigid learning environment too constraining. In short all students are unique and so is their learning process. In response to this Baber has undertaken many courses and additional training, below are a few examples.
– Qualified learning Mentor
– Completed using visualisation in Maths teaching
– Completed enhanced SEN training course including ADHD training
– Dyscalculia and Dyslexia assessment and support trained
At MisterMaths we believe that all learning should be enjoyable. Yes even Maths! MisterMaths was created not only as a response to the need for good quality Maths tutor but also as a conduit to promote our ethos of teaching. Alongside formal teaching we inspire in our tutees a sense of curiosity, passion and self-belief about their learning. Our Personal tutors are trained in the use of all three learning styles – visual, audio and kinaesthetic to ensure we provide the best possible learning experience.
