This is how a referee rated Hannah:
An aspiring civil engineering student, possessing mathematical knowledge that I can use to help younger students improve their mathematical skills.
During A-Levels I constantly attended 'King's Factor' through King's College London. Where we logically analyse and solve STEP and MAT questions. This programme gave me the chance to improve my problem solving and critical thinking skills.
I am self-motivated, committed and determined to achieving my goals, come what may. By being a current Vice President for two different organisations, I have demonstrated good negotiating and organising skills, a firm sense of responsibility and capacity to work harder under pressure.
During my free time I skate, play basketball & badminton. I used to play basketball for a team and won fair amount of games. I am also a passionate musician who play drums, guitar, piano, clarinet and saxophone decently. I like to learn new things that's why I self-taught myself in playing this instruments. In addition to this, currently I have my own band, who played on several gigs and even won as first runner up for battle of the bands. Lastly, I collect different kinds of rubik's cube and puzzle twist, all which I can solve.
Currently working part-time Tutor at **Contact Detail Removed** Sheperds Bush
• Understood the meaning of support and patience
• Learned how to break patterns into simple components for better understanding
• Developed, and enhanced skills in attention to detail
Whilst working as a tutor, I discovered that teaching is not just about the kid being able to memorise the content, equations and even techniques, but also being able to understand them fully and able to apply them at any problem they may come across with.
Hence, for me as a tutor, I make sure that the student understands the knowledge behind the equations they use to solve a certain problem. So in the future they will also know the logic behind a logic.
Because for me, Mathematics is not just about being able to know the answer, its also about the steps, techniques and knowledge used in attaining the correct answer.
