SPECIALIST HIGHER TUTOR
I am a current 3rd year Theoretical Physics mature student at the University of Edinburgh. Who recently took Highers at Edinburgh College. I offer tutoring for Higher Maths and Physics, and will also ensure students are prepared mentally and academically to enter university. I aim to offer a fun and engaging approach to tutoring.
I recently sat Highers at Edinburgh College as a precursor to starting my degree at Edinburgh University. During this time I was able to run small tutorial groups in the library to assist other students in learning the material, all students who regularly attended received As in Physics and Maths, and one has joined me at Edinburgh University.
During my second year at Edinburgh I was enrolled as a Maths Buddy as part of the School of Physics and Astronomy, this means that I and other 2nd years ran twice weekly tutorial sessions for 1st years studying Maths for Physics 1&2. The tutoring approach was one on one tuition. I will also enrol on this programme for the upcoming year.
In addition I have one year experience tutoring high school students in Higher Maths and Physics. During which I managed to raise several pupils from failing their prelims to passing the final exam with a B or above.
As a mature student I have gained valuable experience that enables me to relate material to people of all ages and backgrounds. It has also taught me to self motivate which is a skill I try to instil in my own teaching style. Above all I try to make the sessions relaxing and to make sure I try to get the student to really understand the problem in the context of Mathematics as a whole, how the various parts link together and the overall logical reasoning behind the different techniques and ideas.
