Gurukul Maths Tuitions

3 – 13 years

My name is Shantha and I am a Montessori Nursery Teacher, currently doing my course in Montessori Primary Teaching (6 to 12 yrs). I have a degree in Chemistry but my passion for numbers took me in the tutoring field. In the past, i had worked as a Local Education Authority Governor, appointed by the Hounslow Council. I have 5 years of working experience with Rosalita Edwards Montessori Nursery, East Molesey.

I have 2 children, both going to independent schools, Lady Eleanor Holles and Shrewsbury House School. I tutored them myself for the entrance exams to the schools. Thereafter, I carried on giving tuitions to friends and families. At present, I deliver maths tuitions to children from State and Private Sector and helping them to gain entry into private schools and future schools.

My enthusiasm and commitment have always been rewarded. This is my confidence and belief that a good teacher will always bring out the best in the child. All maths concepts are introduced by ‘Hands- On- Learning’ sensorial experience. This develops the logical mind, reasoning and mental maths. Mathematics is full of abstract concepts. The Montessori materials provide sensorial impressions of mathematical concepts, beginning with concrete experiences and gradually moving towards the abstract. Once the child is confident and has understood a particular concept, worksheets are slowly introduced. This way, the child can revisit the hands on learning materials if stuck with a problem, without losing the confidence. After enough practice, hands on materials are moved away and the child works on worksheets solely.

     

After a free one to one assessment, I will prepare lesson plans and learning materials to cater for each individual child. This will give me an idea of the gap in the learning. The assessment duration is short, about 30 mins. Time to time, children will be sent home with test sheets. Parents will be asked not to give any kind of help to the child. The child’s progress will be monitored and recorded. Parents will be requested to sign the ‘Terms and Conditions’ form before the first tuition assignment commences

If there is no progress in the child’s work, parents are protected by the money back guarantee. Half of the tuition fees paid to date will be refunded. There will be times when I will have to contact the child’s school regarding his/her maths work at the school and this will take place only with the parent’s consent. So far, all my children have been very successful and have gained entrance to schools of their choices.
