Personal Description:

I am 26 years old, ACA qualified accountant, having gained a 2.1 degree from the University of Glasgow in both Economics and Law.

I originally grew up on the Isle of Skye attending Portree High School where I studied Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Geography, English and Modern studies at higher level and Chemistry and Maths at advanced higher.

I am very friendly outgoing individual. I currently live in Stockbridge but am happy to travel as necessary.

Tutoring Experience:

I have not previously had any paid tutoring experience. However I have helped school friends through subjects that I was doing alongside them and provided assistance to family friends children who were struggling with their subjects.

In the last few years of my job as an accountant I have assisted more junior individuals through their professional accountancy exams and on a day to day basis provided training and guidance to junior staff on accountancy queries.

Tutoring Approach:

I understand that people learn in a wide variety of ways and will therefore try and tailor my approach as much as possible. I will try and foster an understanding of the subject to increase confidence in the subject rather than using a rote learning approach.

Maths is normally best understood by question practice and understanding how a problem may be presented. As the underlying techniques are relatively consistent.

With Geography, Physics and Chemistry the subjects require a level of conceptual understanding as well as being able to problem solve. Therefore a focus will be made to ensure that the background theory is as well understood as possible.

Economics is largely theory based and is widely applicable to daily life. A more practical approach will be taken to ensure that the core concepts are understood.

Outside of lessons I am more than happy to be contacted by tutees and can easily help with problems using Whatsapp or other means of communication as required.
