Hello! My name is Rachel and I'm a third year Medical student currently doing my intercalation year in Neuroscience and studying at the University of Edinburgh. I'm enthusiastic, friendly and reliable.

I play badminton for the University first/seconds team regularly and play the piano. I've been brought up in a bilingual dual-culture environment so can speak fluent Mandarin, as well as read and write it after studying in China for a year when I was six years old and going back every year. I achieved A* in Mathematics GCSE and A level and also studied Additional Mathematics in high school achieving the highest grade for it (A).

Tutoring Experience

In the year 2014, I spent one month in a Republic in Russia called Cheboksary being a foreign volunteer in a children's language camp where I gave English and Chinese lessons everyday for 2 weeks. I also taught the children other skills such as acting and learning new songs. I have one brother who is 6 years younger than me and whom I help with in his Maths homework and he is on track to achieve a level 10.

Tutoring Approach

I'm a very patient and empathetic person, and would ensure my tutee had a strong grasp of the basic understanding behind any methodology in Mathematics which they could then apply to tackle any question.

For teaching Chinese I would use a different approach which would be more lively and interactive to reinforce their memory and make things exciting, I've had experience doing this in Russia.
