Personal Description:

I have recently completed my Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Science at the University of Edinburgh and currently work at Goldman Sachs in London as a technology analyst. I have been tutoring privately both at high school and university and I would like to continue after graduation. I have always found great ease and joy in explaining concepts to my fellow classmates and tutees. While studying in the Middle East I have received top of the country rewards for my CIE (Cambridge International Examinations) A level English Language, Business Studies and Computing courses. I have also been honoured with 4th place in the world for AS level Business Studies. As a young person who just completed their education, I feel that I am in the unique position to share various effective learning methods which I use and have used in the past with my tutees. I also believe that as an easy-going and patient individual I can create a friendly, productive learning environment in which your child will not hesitate to ask all the necessary questions. I understand the importance of treating each tutee individually and adapting the class time to suit their specific needs. I find tutoring enjoyable, as it allows me to develop and build my own knowledge when preparing for class and learn new things from my students during lessons.

Tutoring Experience:

I have provided private tutoring to students at various levels and from various cultural backgrounds. I have had the pleasure of performing the duties of a homeroom teacher as well as teaching Geography, English and History to a year 7 class (12-13 year olds) at an international school in Saudi Arabia. Through this experience, I have had the opportunity to work with children from various parts of the world and cater to the best of my ability to their various needs. I have also tutored GCSE level Mathematics, Physics and English; IB Business Management; A level Business Studies, Computing, Mathematics, English as well as SAT Math. Furthermore, I have worked for 1.5 years with a university student on his Pre-Calculus, Economics and Business Ethics courses. During my time in Edinburgh, I have helped students prepare for Nat5, Highers, Advanced Highers as well as IB and A-Level exams in Mathematics and Computer Science, whilst also helping university students with Computer Science courses at UoE.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that it is very important to establish a friendly and understanding relationship with the student from the first class. I like to make sure that the student feels comfortable during class and does not hesitate to ask any question that they may have. I believe it is important to understand which methods of learning are the most effective with the particular tutee. Some students prefer to study alone from the textbook, whilst others like to recite answers to themselves, or solve problems on paper, or discuss the topic with a friend. Asking these few questions at the beginning allows me to tailor my teaching methods to best fit the needs of the particular student. I also think it is extremely important for the student to believe in their own abilities. Many struggling students tend to blame themselves and question their ability to learn the material. In my opinion, every single student is capable of learning, it’s only a question of finding the methods which suit them best and allowing them to regain confidence in their own abilities. To achieve this, after explaining the concept I like to give the student some questions during the lesson and allow them to solve it during class. By correctly solving the questions the student sees that they can indeed work through the material individually with good results, which encourages them for further learning. I also understand that not all teachers and their methods work with all students, which may result in a student having trouble with a subject whilst excelling in their other courses. I believe in the importance of providing practical examples of the discussed material, especially in science or business-oriented subjects. This has always helped me understand concepts better, and from my experience, it has also worked great with my tutees. I have noticed that do to the limited amount of time, teachers often fail to do this enough during school time resulting in natural confusion among students. Sometimes a simple example or drawing can do wonders. I believe it is always important for the tutee to work through a set of questions individually as this not only cements the theory learned but also allows the student to gain confidence in themselves. Therefore, I always like to provide a set of exercises and practice materials to my students which can then be marked at the earliest convenience. I also try my best to answer all urgent questions students may have through email, in an event of an upcoming class test etc. I believe that the best results are achieved when the student feels comfortable around the tutor and believes they are working with someone they can relate to and someone who understands the difficulties they are facing.
