This is how 2 referees rated Robbie:
I am a 22 year old student at the University of Bristol studying Engineering Design. I am going into my final year of university and last year I completed a year placement at a multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy called Frazer-Nash. I am currently working on a first and have achieved firsts in all the Mathematics 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.
For the academic year 14/15, I tutored three students (Year 8, two Year 12s) and in 15/16, I tutored five students (Year 9, two Year 11s, two Year 13s). So far every student I've tutored has met or exceeded the grade they were aiming for! I 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.
I am on the committee of Engineers Without Borders as the Outreach Officer. I regularly attend local schools of all ages, where I lead workshops encouraging students to become engineers. This has led to me teaching children a wide range of topics under the STEM umbrella. Furthermore, I spent the summer working in a summer camp in Virginia, USA so I am no stranger to working with children!
I am considering following a teaching degree after graduation.
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.
