Meet Sophie

Hey, I’m Sophie!

I’m the Chief Maths Tutor and the one who created Tutor In A Box. I teach Maths to student all the way from Year 1 to Year 11 and also work with mature adults who wish to obtain their functional skills qualification (or are taking some kind of other numbers test)! 

I love working with students and young people who don’t like learning or think they can’t do it – I see this a challenge to be overcome. My style is very upbeat and positive and I work hard with students to increase their confidence and enjoyment in the the subject.

My style of tutoring is positive, friendly and cheerful! When it comes to Maths, there’s no silly questions. 

And some other important questions… 

  • What’s your background? I have a 1st class Maths degree and am also trained to teach English as a foreign language (TEFL) and have taught students in P1 – P6 in both China and Hong Kong. 
  • What’s in your fridge? Chocolate, apples and leftovers from the night before!
  • What are your hobbies? I love keeping active and run regularly – I find it’s a really nice time for me to switch off and zone out!
  • What is a fun fact about you? I absolutely love my coffee! In the morning there’s nothing better than a flat white.
