Personal Description:

Hello! I'm Garrie, a tutor for Maths/Physics at high school and university level, and the top rated tutor on the FirstTutors website in the Glasgow/North Lanarkshire area!

I'm a 26 year-old lecturer in Marine/Mechanical engineering with the City of Glasgow College, and was previously a Research Assistant / Teacher at the University of Glasgow.

I first graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2011, where I gained a first class B.Eng. (Hons) in Aeronautical Engineering, finishing at the top of my class. I then conducted PhD research at the University of Strathclyde from 2011 onwards, before joining the University of Glasgow as a teaching assistant.

I am deeply passionate about my subject and the fields which underpin it, such as Mathematics, Physics and Computing/Programming. I enjoy sharing that passion with others, and helping them to comprehend these subjects in a way that is inspiring and interesting to them.

Tutoring Experience:

I have worked as a tutor for 3 years, and in that time have managed to help more than 70 students improve their grades and achieve the exam results they were hoping for, as exemplified by my record 5/5 reviews, placing me as the top rated maths/physics tutor in the Glasgow/Lanarkshire area on the FirstTutors website.

My students have ranged from high school students sitting SQA qualifications, including Intermediate 1/2, Standard Grade, Higher and Advanced Higher levels through to University students from Mathematics, Physics, Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering departments from various Scottish unis, as well as adults seeking to pick up qualifications they missed out on at school, or return to higher education as a mature student.

I have also lectured and supervised student projects professionally in my role at the University of Glasgow's School of Engineering in subjects of all levels and across the engineering disciplines (aerospace, mechanical, electronics/electrical) - from first year undergraduate, up to MSc/Masters level, and have an excellent reputation and feedback within the School of Engineering.

I also tutored in my role as a PhD student at the University of Strathclyde, providing tuition and guidance to Mechanical Engineering undergraduate students during lab demonstrations and tutorials.

Tutoring Approach:

Different students have different needs and learning styles, and I aim to tailor my tuition approach to match the needs of each student as much as possible, and give them some control over how they want to be taught.

Students will have a large say in what they learn from me, and how they learn, helping me to identify their strengths and weaknesses, and helping me to structure a learning programme that will complement that.

I intend for my students to gain a solid foundation and an interest in their subject, and to develop their own revision skills so that they can improve their capacity for independent learning in the future - it isn't just about passing exams, it's about nurturing an interest the subject.

I believe that the best way to learn is to enjoy learning, and the best way to enjoy learning is to learn things which are inspiring and interesting - I aim to achieve this in my sessions.

I am not a secondary school teacher, and I will not teach like a secondary school teacher. I find that the approach of many teachers can be dull and boring for students, and often doesn't inspire the students enough to take an interest in a subject that can be genuinely fun for them if they are introduced to it from the correct perspective. I aim to provide that perspective, and fill the gap that teachers often leave during their lessons.
