Hello, my name is Bowen and I’m a first year Natural Sciences student at Cambridge (just finished first year). For my A-Levels I did Edexcel Maths and Further Maths, OCR A Chemistry and OCR B Physics.
I have almost 100 hours of tutoring experience in Maths, Physics and Chemistry, starting in sixth form. I also gave free mentoring to students at my school. Many of my teachers were extremely good at explaining concepts in an intuitive and down-to-earth way, so I want to pass that on. A lot of my success came down to my teachers so I am enthusiastic to teach and explain anything understandably and pragmatically in the same way.
My approach is very flexible and I always tailor it appropriately to my students’ needs. I can help with anything in maths/physics/chemistry, by giving intuitive and clear explanations. If I feel my tutee is missing some fundamental understanding necessary to understand something more difficult, I will fill that in first. I’ll work through a few example questions with my mentees, then leave them to do several more on their own whilst guiding them if they need help.
I would say I engage with my tutees well and this is one of the main reasons why they can come to understand things quickly and easily. Being a student I can have a good connection with my tutees as it is easy for me to understand their position and be on their wavelength. Moreover, I know what the important things to know for the exam are - key steps in solving different problems, key bits of reasoning or knowledge.
