Karen Go-Soco

Over the years I have worked as a primary school teacher, lead maths teacher, supply teacher, teaching assistant, deputy head, childminder and mother of three children! During this time, I developed a passion for teaching maths and for encouraging a positive, confident attitude towards the subject. My desire to help children to understand and enjoy maths as much as possible led to me gaining Accredited Teacher Dyscalculia status with the British Dyslexia Association, and I now work solely providing maths tuition for primary school up to Year 7.
My tutoring is always tailored to the specific needs of each individual pupil and my aim is to increase enjoyment and confidence as well as ability!Before the first session, we will discuss any particular concerns, needs and expectations. The first session will then focus on assessing the pupil’s ability, to identify specific difficulties, gaps in knowledge, misconceptions and level of understanding. This will allow me to plan an appropriate program of multi-sensory learning, based on a Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract approach, incorporating a range of activities and games. Lessons can be face to face, or online via Zoom.

  • Testimonial from a client

    My son, who has a diagnosis of autism spectrum condition, has been seeing Karen for maths tuition since March 2022. He had switched off from learning and had lost confidence in his abilities. With gentle patience, skillful practice, and positive encouragement, Karen is coaxing him back to enjoying maths and building self confidence. Karen is focusing on helping him to build a solid foundation and experience success, lifting barriers to areas of maths he never thought he could fathom such as algebra. We are delighted with the progress he is making and very grateful to Karen for her kind and diligent work. We would recommend Karen's tuition to any parent or child but particularly where difficulties with learning and confidence have arisen. Karen was recommended to us by a friend when we were looking for a tutor to help our daughter with maths as she has always struggled with confidence which impacted her learning. Karen is just so good at instilling confidence in maths as she really took the time to get to know our daughter, has such a calm and reassuring manner, and explains things very well as they go along. Lots of the teaching and practice is done through games which we can do more of at home which has really helped take the anxiety out of 'doing' maths. The progress made in the time we've been seeing Karen has been amazing.
