Mary B - Tutor in East London

I am a well qualified Maths teacher with loads of experience. I have recently retired and am presently teaching high school maths online. I can teach Gr8 - Gr12 and over the years my students have consistently attained good results. I have an extensive knowledge of the syllabi and exam requirements. I have a reputation for being able to explain clearly. My approach is to help students at their own pace. I will explain topics that they are finding difficult and help them to keep up with classwork and homework. I can also prepare them for tests and exams by doing extra examples with them.

I have taught for 30 years in various schools. I was at the Diocesan School for Girls in Grahamstown (IEB School) for about 12 years and have been at Cathcart High School (ex Model C school) for the past 12 years. I love teaching and over the years developed strong and positive relationships with my learners.
