I am a hardworking & passionate person & I really enjoy learning & teaching with pupils! I have recently graduated from the University of Aberdeen, with a Masters in Chemical Engineering, and am now working in the Oil and Gas industry as a Graduate Risk and Safety Engineer. Outside of this, I am heavily involved with my Church. On Saturdays, I also teach National 5 mathematics at a Russian School in Aberdeen. There, I have a class of around 10 children.
I have had the privilege of working with children of all ages, having been part of the mother & toddlers group in my church as well as being able to help out at the youth group as a youth leader. This has helped me to not only grow in my faith but to also develop patience and to be more positive when working with children. Recently, I had left the Air Training Core after being a part of it for several years, having completed all training & achieving the rank of Sergeant. This had enhanced my leadership skills as well as learning about discipline & responsibility.
I have had the privilege of working for the Lomonosov Russian School in Aberdeen. In 2013, I was entrusted with my own class teaching National 5 Chemistry to children who were in their second year at school as well as helping with tuition of mathematics as a support assistant in a few classes of children with varying age. At the end of 2014, I had began working as a tutor for chemistry, with one of my pupils that I had taught earlier. This followed to an interest in working as a tutor with more pupils. In January 2015, I began working for the company Tutors In Aberdeen, where I had in total 5 pupils, with a few private pupils also. The subject that was taught was primarily Higher Mathematics, however I had pupils with which we were working on National 5 Mathematics & Physics & Revised Higher Physics. I have been privileged to see progress in all of my pupils, however one specific pupil had failed her prelim & was very discouraged, after we started learning we managed to pick up and get a bit more understanding. I was able to send her for her exam with much higher expectations than before. Following this, her result came back as an 'A'.
In early 2018, I was invited back to the Lomonosov Russian School to take over a class of around 10 pupils, teaching National 5 mathematics. The class has a mixture of Russian and English only students, and has been a fantastic opportunity for me to develop my teaching skills in a group setting, as well as individual.
With that & all the experience I have gained, I can only thank Jesus for.
It is very important that a pupil is able to focus on the subject and is able to get into a flow & for this reason the length of a lesson would be 1.5 hours.
Pupils have the opportunity to learn their subject at school, however on many occasions the school teacher is not able to provide the attention required to the pupil, nor be able to provide a comprehensive and thorough teaching of the course at hand. This would be due to the fact that there are so many pupils in one class. Tutors are there to provide that attention & answers to all the questions associated with the course at hand. It allows for the pupils questions to be answered instantly, without the pupil forgetting & only realizing that he/she forgot to ask during his/her final exam paper.
I believe that no pupil is unchangeable & is unable to improve. With patience, perseverance and hard work either through repetition of material or explaining, it would be possible to improve & learn the course in order to achieve an A band 1 in the specific course of study.
Towards exam period it would be relevant to do enhanced study of all the theory as well as past papers in order to see the different variation in the questions.
