Blyth Tutor

I am a 23-year-old PhD student at the University of Bristol, who has been tutoring maths for three years now. I recently graduated with a First Class Master's in Engineering, achieving firsts in all the maths modules. I attended Loughborough Grammar School, where I received A*A*A at A-level in maths, physics, and biology. At GCSE, I got 6 A*s and 4As.

Tutoring Experience

For the academic year 16/17, I tutored five students (three Year 13s, one Year 8, one mature student), in 15/16, I tutored five students (one Year 9, two Year 11s, two Year 13s), and in 14/15, I tutored three students (one Year 8, two Year 12s). They've been a range of abilities, but so far every student I've tutored has met or exceeded the grade they were aiming for! Two of my 16/17 Year 13s made it into Imperial and Oxford Univerisity respectively!

I've received a terrific response from all students and thoroughly enjoyed seeing their confidence and ability in maths grow. All three students from 14/15 kept me as a tutor for 15/16 and two from 16/17 are keeping me on.

I am also involved without the outreach program of Engineers Without Borders. I regularly attend local schools of all ages, where I lead workshops raising awareness about engineering, science and sustainability. This has led to me teaching children a wide range of topics under the STEM umbrella. Furthermore, I spent the summer working at a summer camp in Virginia, USA so I am no stranger to working with children!

I am considering following a teaching career one day.

Tutoring Approach

My approach is flexible. I personally found the best way to learn was to do a bit of theory followed by loads of examples. However, if the student does not respond brilliantly to this method, I can easily adapt to suit their needs. In the past, I have been happy to set homework and answer any extra questions that the student has after the lesson over email. Being a student myself, I understand the stress of exams and have found that I am able to relate well with the student.
