Hi, I'm an experienced tutor and am teacher-trained, with 5 years experience. I tutor all across the primary range from YR to Year 6. I have GCSEs in Maths/English, a degree in English and 90% of maths and English I am secure in. Sometimes however I will be asked to help with challenging reasoning questions in maths, e.g. homework presented spontaneously, that I do struggle with to be honest. I am volunteeering an afternoon a week in my local school's Year 6 class in order to keep up to speed with best practice, however how do other tutors handle being presenting with such questions? I am good at what I do, but the top group Year 6 reasoning and problem-solving is stretching, and I do feel that I should be able to help my pupils with it. With half an hour at home I am able to explain such questions, but I do need that bit of time to myself in order to work them out. How do other tutors handle such an issue?
