My name is Marcia and I am a 23 year old Biomedical Engineering graduate from Glasgow University. I graduated with a masters degree (MEng) with first class honours. As part of my course, I studied dedicated mathematics, biology and mechanics subjects, ranging from physiology and anatomy, to dynamics and engineering mathematics. My masters thesis was based on mathematical modelling of antibody drug therapies. Whilst at secondary school, I studied human biology to higher level and mathematics and physics to advanced higher level, attaining A passes in all three. I was a recipient of three scholarships from Allan Glen's Endowment Trust, William Wilson Scott (through Glasgow University) and the Women's Engineering Society which I believe is testament to my abilities in mathematics and the sciences. I have a real passion for problem solving and am enthusiastic about the sciences, and in particular about mathematics .
Whilst at secondary school, I helped tutor younger pupils as well as organising and leading study sessions with my classmates. Also, I took part in a mentoring program through the University of Glasgow whereby I went to a local secondary school to help tutor an advanced higher physics student. I also assisted at tutorials for second year engineering students at University of Glasgow in the general mathematics class.
I am very patient and am quick to find the best approach for helping each individual. I believe no individual learns in one set way, so my approach would be flexible to help find the best way to help the particular student. It is my belief that mathematics and the sciences are best learnt through practice of problems but believe it is important to first work through how I personally would go about solving each set of problems so the student has a model by which to base their understanding on. I also believe it is important to maintain a relaxed approach to scientific problems. I will provide exam type or practice problems as well as a set of hand written notes, written and worked through whilst with the student.
