Information About Kyle - Edinburgh tutor - (1 review)
This is how 2 referees rated Kyle:
I am currently working towards a Chemistry PhD at the University of Edinburgh. I have studied and lived in a variety of countries, so I am used to dealing with a variety of people, including many whose first language is not English. Generally meeting new people is something I find enjoyable and enriching.
During several years as a postgraduate student, I have worked both in formal roles overseeing undergraduate teaching laboratories and less formally helping undergraduate project students in the same research group to carry out their research projects. This has typically included aspects such as explaining the theoretical underpinning of their experimental work and/or checking their understanding, as well as ensuring they have the practical techniques to carry out their work safely.
My approach is to try challenge the tutee in a similar fashion to the way I would challenge undergraduates with novel problems/questions. Where the tutee struggles to understand a particular topic, I would typically use a series of targeted questions to help improve their understanding. I often find that helping the tutee to connect pieces of information he/she probably already knows is the best way to help them understand and remember in future situations.

Thank you very much for your excellent work. You were always very patient and helpful and I appreciate very much that you were always open to rescheduling sessions. I think the exam you helped me prepare for went much better than the last one. Please tell me if you need this review in a different style, I am not sure if it is posted on your profile or is just a person to person thing.
