Personal Description:

I am an experienced Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering in one of the leading universities in London. I have a wide experience in teaching 11 Plus and Private schools' entrance exams, GCSE, AS and A/L Maths students. I possess excellent teaching skills throughout the age and ability range. My ability to create a good, lively and positive learning environment has proven over the years. I have a very good sense of humour and able to motivate the students to achieve their targets. All my A/L students have secured excellent grades this year (August 2016) and are eligible to apply for top universities in the UK.
I am very successful in giving an excellent passing rates for the undergraduate (BSc Hons and BEng Hons) and master degree (MSc) students and they have secured promising careers in the civil engineering industry.
I motivate pupils who are below the expected level in numeracy to build up their confidence in their learning and communicate effectively with them on a regular basis. I have conducted support maths classes for foundation and extended BSc and BEng Civil Engineering students. I have proven my ability to support students to achieve their potential by stimulating their enthusiasm for learning. As a result, I have received positive feedback from my students. I am a Programme Leader for BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering degree and manage over hundred students across all three levels of study.
I possess a Post Graduate Certificate (PG Cert) in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education. I am a Fellow of Higher Education Academy (FHEA) of UK since 2009.

Tutoring Experience:

I have experience in teaching maths for 11 Plus entrance exam, GCSE, AS, A/L as well as foundation and extended engineering degree students who sometimes haven't got any mathematical knowledge. I always love to take challenges and have proven with a very good passing rate of all age groups and levels of study. I have conducted lessons for individuals (one-to-one) as well as for small groups. Please refer 'My Tutees' to look at feedback I received from my students.

Tutoring Approach:

I start with fundamentals of particular topic (according to the given syllabus), explain about the engineering or physical applications in the real world of it to grasp the reason of studying and solving such mathematical problem. I gradually teach and work out complicated problems, showing the breakdown of marks in the exam. I usually provide important tactics to handle more complicated mathematical problems. I normally work out a number of similar tutorial questions within the teaching time to make the student more understandable. I make learning more enjoyable, happy and guide the students to obtain good passing grades.
I also provide homework and do follow-up sessions. Reminders will be sent to all tutees via mobile texts and e-mails about homework and revision of previous lessons.
