Maths Lessons in Bristol

I am a second year student studying Civil Engineering at the University of Bristol. Aside from my studies I am a competitive swimmer for the university and, of course, enjoy maths.

Tutoring Experience

Throughout my time in school, mainly sixth form I was always on hand to help other students struggling in maths and also helped out at lunchtime sessions where younger students could drop in to ask for help with their work. Over the past year, for experience I have been tutoring a friend though their GCSE maths course which was very successful and helped them improve their final grade.

Tutoring Approach

Maths was always my favourite subject at school and I really enjoy helping others and get a lot of satisfaction from seeing their improvement. Depending on the level I am tutoring at, there are different approaches to take however in all cases I find the best way to teach is through examples as a lot of the time people understand the concept but find it harder to apply it when asked to solve questions. For younger children, I like to go through a variety of exercises and add fun elements to make sure they are engaged and understand. For older students, GCSE and above who are taking exams, after going through any of the concepts they aren't confident with and doing some exercises I always think the best way to gain high grades is to go though past papers and make sure they understand the types and formats of the questions, identifying which topics they find hardest which can then be worked on further separately.
