Personal Description:

My name is Freya and I am 19 years old. I am studying Civil Engineering at the University of Bath and I am a QUEST scholar which is a scholarship from the Institution of Civil Engineers. I am very passionate about Maths and Physics, I have always been drawn to them and enjoyed learning them at school. At GCSEs I achieved 7 A*s and 3As (all the sciences and maths were A*s) and then at A-Level I got A* in maths, A is AS Further Maths, A in Physics and A* in Art.
I love art and it is something I do in my spare time when not doing my degree. My course is very important to me and I spent two month in summer working for Skanska at the new Crossrail station in Paddington. I have really enjoyed tutoring and I often help my friends with the maths in their degrees.

Tutoring Experience:

Last year I tutored a student in Bath for his Maths and Physics GCSE. I loved tutoring him and his grades went up considerably and I have an amazing reference from his mother. In Sixth Form I was a Maths mentor; this means I assisted the teacher doing the lesson and helped students who were stuck. I did this for a year for ages between 11-16. I am currently a peer mentor at university. This means I have 5 first year students who come to me if they need any help in their degree or personal life.

Tutoring Approach:

I think tutoring is entirely dependent on the tutees way of learning. I personally had tutoring throughtout secondary school and I know the best way to tutor is to concentrate on the topic the student is weakest at and to build them up before focusing on the subject as a whole. I think the best thing to do is for the student to collect any work they have struggled with (such as homework or past paper questions) and I will go through these with them to show them the best method to work through them and how to get the solution.
After the problem questions are done I will base the session on a topic they find difficult. I will do the equivalent of a lesson at school to talk them through the theory and make sure they understand it. I find in school with a big class often the students will miss things but one-on-one as the tutor I will make sure they understand everything. I like to bring my own problems and past papers which will focus on what the student struggles with and in the session we go through these together. If sessions are weekly I will set homework for the week to encourage revision outside of school; for Maths and Physics the way to get better is practice.
