Personal Description:

I am a 23 year old student at University College London, studying the Arts & Sciences BASc, where I major in Architecture and minor in Mechanical Engineering and have studied Arabic as my language module for the last three years. I am a huge reader of books, a few recent favourites being Dostoevsky's The Possessed and Notes from Underground, Nikolai Gogol's The Overcoat and Niccolo Machiavelli's The Prince. I'm currently reading and thoroughly enjoying A History of the World in 100 Objects by Neil MacGregor and Dante: Poet of the Secular World. I have tutored AS Level maths and GCSE previously and I am excited to tutor in a wider array of subjects at these levels.

Tutoring Experience:

This year I have taken my skills and experience in teaching children from disadvantaged backgrounds and applied them to much wider contexts, having taught maths and english to refugees at the L'Ecole Laique du Chemin des Dunes in Calais.
In 2015 I expanded into tutoring children with special needs, which has been an incredibly rewarding experience and one I intend to continue with.
In the summer of 2014 I was employed as a student ambassador across 3 seperate Widening Participation Programmes at UCL, targeted at children from disadvantaged backgronds, leading groups of up to 11 throughout full day schedules of workshops, lectures and museum visits. These age groups varied from Year to Year 11.
In 2014, alongside academic tutoring I worked as a team leader for Open Air Fit, leading groups of up to 30 children across a range of fun physical activities during summer camps and birthday parties.
During 2013 in my academic year, I was selected as personal tutor and programme mentor for the design module at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL that is offered to first year students on my course at the BASc, UCL.
In 2012 I worked as a tutor on the Generating Genius scheme, that aims to help talented students from disadvantaged backgrounds. I worked for the course of the Generating Genius programme at St Columba's Catholic Boys School in Bexleyheath. It was an eye opening experience that led to various other opportunities working with pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds.
In 2011 I tutored an AS Level maths student who passed went from failing her classes to passing her AS Levels with an A Grade in the retake of her C1 Paper.

Tutoring Approach:

Still being in study myself, I understand how the feeling over being overwhelmed by institutional learning and place great emphasis on the importance of independent or private study. I am very approachable and easy going and have lots of little cousins in my family so I am quite used to handling children of all ages.
