Personal Description:

A recently graduated mathematician from the University of Bath with prior long term experience in tutoring maths to a varied young audience and a fluent welsh speaker.

My particular speciality from university is in Statistics and can comfortably tutor the assorted areas of mathematics taught in school (i.e. Pure, Mechanics/Applied, Statistics and Probability) in Welsh or English.

Tutoring Experience:

I tutored maths to children of varying ages and skill for 4 years at Kumon Maths. This varied from learning the basics, such as how to count (nursery/primary level), up to mathematical induction and circular motion (further maths A-level). From my time doing this, I learnt that it's very important to be patient and understanding with each student and to adapt teaching styles accordingly.

During my time at university I became a STEM Ambassador where I participated in outreach projects with the aim of introducing maths to a wider audience and improving the perception the public has of the subject. I participated in the annual 'Bath Taps into Science' festival, where I ran a stall on the maths behind different card tricks and board games.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is more problem based tutoring. The topics are introduced through examples and problems. The tools for the student to solve these are gathered through learning the basics of the topics and then using these to solve further problems.

For me to do this, the student needs to provide a list of topics or problem sheets that they need help with and I can then gather suitable material for the student.
