Maths Tutor - KS3, GCSE, A Level and IB

by Debra Pearson
(San Pedro de Alcantara)


Hello, My name is Debra Pearson, I have, until recently held the post of Head of the Maths Department at an International School in Marbella, but have now decided to offer my services as a Private Tutor in Maths. I will be starting in September 2014 and still have some sessions available. If you are interested in tutoring for your child or would like a chat to discuss how I could be of help, I would be happy to do so.

Year 13 IB graduate.
by: Lara F

Miss Debra is a highly intelligent woman who caters to the needs of her maths students excellently. Maths was always a subject that I struggled with but Miss Debra really knows how to put her students at her ease, which allows the student to become more comfortable and more focused. She will always make sure you understand the concept before moving on to another and takes it upon herself to find questions relating to that topic.

Miss Debra is a brilliant tutor as I have definitely seen improvements in my maths studies grade in IB. She has been the best maths teacher I have ever had and the one to one tuition really is worth it. She is a lovely lady who genuinely cares about her students mentally and physically aswell as the intention of improving their grades and confidence with maths.

Year 13 Graduate
by: Salma H

I was a student at Swans School for 4 years, and was lucky enough to had been acquainted with Miss Debra.

After leaving school, she tutored me for both my IGCSE and IB examinations - it is safe to say that without her I would've failed Maths.

She is the best tutor I have ever had and lessons were always so much fun. Apart from being an excellent teacher she is a lovely person who cares about the people she tutors. And I am really lucky to have been a student of hers for 3 years :D

Guided Revision Video Tutorials for Year 11 IGCSE
by: Debra Pearson

Due to high demand for tuition, I am now producing and offering video tutorials. Currently the videos are targeted at Year 11's who are approaching their IGCSE mocks in January and final exams next year, but I will be producing videos for IB Maths in the new year. Each bundle consists of a 20 minute tutorial, a worksheet with past exam questions for students to try (approximately 20 minutes of work) and a video of worked solutions to accompany the worksheet (approximately 20 minutes).
The series of videos aim to offer directed revision for students to help them improve the skills required for the IGCSE.

Those students currently using the videos, have found that ordering one tutorial a week fills the same amount of time as one hours tuition, with the added benefits of having videos which can be replayed at any time to consolidate learning and providing an hours revision/tuition for the cost of only 10 Euros

If you would like more information please contact me on dbrpearson@gmail.com

Maths tutor
by: Anonymous

I would like to express my sincere gratitude for having been tutored privately by Miss Debra before my IGCSE exams. She has helped me understand in great depth my weaker areas in Maths through different techniques and tips which have been indeed very helpful.
Miss Debra has been teaching me since Year 8, both in school and at home and if it wasn't for her I doubt I would be the A/A* student I am in maths today. I have seen my grades increase greatly throughout the years and it is thanks to the support of Miss Debra.
I sincerely recommend Miss Debra to anyone struggling in maths or anyone who simply needs extra support or clarification. She is a fantastic teacher who will make Maths easier to understand and so much more enjoyable!

A level help
by: Anonymous

I can only express my most profound gratitude for Debra. When I was studying Edexcel GCE AS level maths, my grades were tremedously elevated via the tutoring I received going from 68 UMS (%) to 95 UMS (%). Furthermore, I am greatly appreciative of how flexible Debra was, working around the times that suited me the best. All in all, she was greatly successful in explaining the theory of chapter areas making everything less problematic and of course, more enjoyable, because everything is enjoyable when you start improving rapidly!

IGCSE Maths Tutor Reference
by: Mother of Year 10 Student

13th June, 2016.
Marbella,

I am more than pleased to provide this reference for Miss Debra who has tutored my son in Year 10 for a period of six months.

I required Miss Debra’s maths tutoring services as my son was not achieving his full potential in maths. His exam technique was also in need of perfecting.

Miss Debra was able to help my son thoroughly understand gaps he had in his maths knowledge and skill and also fully prepare him for his end of year maths exams. His overall confidence in maths has also improved significantly.

As a result, my son achieved an A and a B in his exams, which we were extremely pleased with.

We found Miss Debra to be always punctual, easy to communicate with and a kind and genuinely interested teacher.

I have no hesitation in recommending her services to potential students.

SMALL GROUP REVISION SESSIONS
by: Debra Pearson

I have had some requests to tutor small groups in the run up to the GCSE, IB and A Level exams.If you have a pair, trio or small group of students who feel they need some help please contact me for a quote. Cost is dependent on group size, the maximum at one session is six students. It works out cheaper individually the more there are in the group. 😊
Happy studying!
Debra Pearson.

Deb is a great teacher!
by: Steve Russell

Hi "Anonymous".

I have a ton of respect for Debra as she is a top educator.

I specialise in Maths and Statistics up to and including unversity courses, so (I)GCSE, A-Level, IB (Studies/SL/HL). I am an IB Examiner as well.

I also educate in Economics and Business, up to and including university level.

I hold two Honors degrees in Mathematics & Statistics, and in Economics, as well as a Masters' degree in Business Administration.

Additionally, I am a very successful counsellor for university admissions, with a preference for American universities.

At the current time, I am fully booked during the day and after school for tutoring, with a few slots left on the weekend.

Perhaps I can assist you when it comes time to begin the admissions process, especially if you and your child are interested in matriculation to an American university.

All the best,

Steve Russell

Ms. Debra Pearson has been the tutor of our 3 daughters last year and her task was not an easy one especially for our eldest daughter Isabel,who had her GCSE exams coming up.
Isabel has never been a good math student but after having been tutored by Ms. Debra she started to like "Math" to the extend,that she was looking forward to her regular classes with "HER DEBSI"
Isabel’s grade have moved up and she is today a "B+" student and so are her sisters.
Ms.Debra’s greatest asset is the fact, that she listens to her students,understands completely their problems and then explains in easy,understandable language the subject concerned and this is confirmed by all our 3 daughters as well as their peers who also have been lucky to have Ms. Debra tutoring them.
Ms. Debra is now a part of our family and we all are looking forward to seeing her again after the summer break.
Needless to say,that we highly recommend her to everyone, looking for an excellent Math teacher.

To whom it may concern I am very pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Deborah Pearson. She has been helping my son Michael, during this summer with his Maths IB. Michael says that Deborah motivates and encourages him to work harder, she explains in detail and has helped Michael with a lot of his Maths problems he had been struggling with at school. My husband and I are very comfortable with Deborah. Sincerely Deborah Roper
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To whom it may concern,
Mrs Pearson has been tutoring my son who is in IB. She has shown interest in knowing his level, what materials he covered so that she could focus right away on the topics he needed the most to practice.
She has the full understanding of the students needs and the IB exam requirements, content as well as the strategy to reach the student potentials.
He has done 2 weeks intensive revision with Debra. He did a lot of test practises and she gave him a lot of tips, practise exams and made sure all tests got corrected from one lesson to the other not to waste time during the maths class and make the most of the tutoring hour.

Fees for Maths Tutoring
by: Debra Pearson

Dear Rocio,

I have detailed my fees below so you and any other interested parties can see the different charges in black and white, if you are then still interested we can talk further.

The first session I have with a student and parents is free. The aim of this session is to diagnose and discuss the particular needs of the student, to enable me to plan effectively for future sessions. This also allows you to meet me and ask any questions you may have.

My fees include travel, planning, all resources and online support via an educational website designed for students and teachers (much like facebook, where students can ask questions of me and get responses over the internet.)This is optional.

Sessions in your home

40 Euros per hour
if you book and pay for ten sessions in advance the fee is 350 Euros.

If you come to me (I am near Cancelada, 2 minutes off the A7), although I am currently looking for premises for the future, which would be closer to Marbella

35 Euros per hour
If you book and pay for ten sessions in advance the fee is 300 Euros.

Please note I have Spanish and English police checks, which are necessary to work in schools and can give you further recommendations if required.

I would suggest one hour long sessions are sufficient for GCSE and KS3, however if you are interested in tutoring for IB or A Levels, you might like to consider one and a half hour sessions.

I can provide tutor sessions at any time, day evening or weekends, (if I am not already booked.)

In addition I also provide intensive day or week sessions for exam preparation or catch up. These services are quoted for individually.

Thank you for your interest. I hope to hear from you further.

Debra Pearson BSc.
