Alies Bartelds

I am Alies Bartelds. I am an experienced Maths tutor, based in Chapel of Garioch, near Inverurie, Aberdeenshire. I offer Maths tuition on a one-to-one basis for Secondary School pupils from BSE (Broad General Education, S1 – S3) to National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher level. I tutor both Mathematics as well as Applications of Mathematics. We can do this in person or via Zoom and Whats’App.

I earned my PhD degree in Engineering from Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. I have been living in Scotland for more than 20 years and I am well familiar with the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence. I hold a PVG certificate from Disclosure Scotland.

My youngest child is attending our local Secondary school, and my eldest is currently at University.

Tutoring Approach

I always start by getting to know my pupils, their strengths, hobbies, and interests. This helps me to teach in a way that aligns more with their way of learning. If the problem lends itself to this, I can use examples set in a context in which the pupil is interested and confident.

At the centre of my tutor services is the improvement of skills and to boost confidence for each individual pupil. Every problem can be broken down in more manageable blocks, and often there is more than one way to come to a solution. I am keen to help each pupil to find the method that works best for him or her.

For those having to sit tests or exams, my aim is to give you the confidence to face these, knowing that you have developed the skills and ability to do as well as you possibly can.

Looking forward to work with you,

Alies

Services

Primary Maths tutoring

Are you still at Primary School and do you think that Maths is boring and you will never use it in real life?

We can do some fun games together (either face to face or virtual) that will make Maths less boring. Have you ever wondered why there are so many triangle shapes in things like bridges and high buildings? Let’s find out why together!

Secondary School Maths

Are you a Secondary School pupil and do you find Maths challenging or do you sometimes struggle to follow what you have been taught in a classroom setting?

I can sit down with you (either face to face or virtual) and explain the concepts that you find difficult to grasp. We can work through exercises together, building up your understanding

access courses

Do you need a Maths access course in order to study at University, including teaching courses?

It can be hard if it is a while ago since you last had Maths at school. But I can sit down with you (either face to face or virtual) and explain the concepts that you find difficult to grasp. We can work through exercises together, building up your understanding

Availibilty

I am available at week days and evenings.

 

Fees

My one-to-one fee is competitive at £30 per hour.

This includes not only the hour I see my pupils but also making myself available via whats app for any questions they may have during the rest of the week, so we can spend the hour that I do see my pupils as efficient as possible.
