I'm an outgoing and chatty person who enjoys engaging with others. I graduated from the University of Southampton in 2013 with a 2i in Economics and Management. I work for a large multinational telecommunications company as a project manager. Beyond my studies and work I enjoy hiking, running with my spaniel, making music and singing.
My first tutoring experience involved successfully taking an individual through GCSE Maths, raising his grade from a predicted grade of E to an achieved grade of C in 2 months. This involved working through methods of approaching typical problems and addressing 'panic' when seeing a question that seemed unusual.
Over the last 3 years I have tutored a variety of abilities, specialising in preparation for GCSE Maths. I am comfortable working with both struggling students and with those who need a little bit more challenge to keep them engaged with the subject.
I have also had experience of teaching piano and singing, as well as teaching English as a foreign language in Guatemala. I am available to teach these subjects as well as maths.
I firmly believe that if the individual enjoys the learning experience, then they will learn better. The tutoring needs to be provided in such a way that engages and interests the student. This requires a bespoke approach as each individual is different. This is why tutoring is often successful where schooling perhaps struggles; the sessions can be tailored to fit the individual student. I will spend time understanding the needs of the student, which topics they find difficult, and determine why they struggle in these areas. I will then assess how we can work together to improve.
