Map for Robert (Mr)

Personal Description:

I am a student studying for a masters in electronic engineering at the University of Southampton and currently working at AWE. I've achieved a 1st in years 1,2 and the 1st semester of 3rd year (still awaiting results for the second semester).

This summer and last I have worked at AWE as an electronic engineer, and have previous experience at Harada (a leader in vehicle radios) and Caterham (the sports car manufacturer).

I am motivated, organised and hard working, as well as enjoying electronics and all the science and maths that comes along with it. Along with academic interests, I enjoy playing guitar, working occasionally as an event photographer, and can ride a unicycle.

Tutoring Experience:

I've had two previous clients, both being taught GCSE maths, both of whom were happy with my teaching.
This is my first time being a tutor. But I have had previous experience leading teams as a patrol leader in the Scouts. In the course of work and university I end up having to explain things clearly and succinctly. I help my 11 year-old sister out with her maths homework whenever I'm home so I have experience working with younger children. Once they get past about 14/15 it makes more sense to just teach them like adults anyway.

I'm not DBS (prev' CRB) checked, but do have DV clearance from working at AWE, so hopefully this proves some level of reliability and trustworthiness.

Tutoring Approach:

Overall, lots of drawing, analogies and examples. I find that people generally need some motivation to learn things, i.e. and answer to the question "what's the point?". I was always told in school that maths had 'some use' but there was never anything concrete behind it. This is what I feel I can offer over a school; real-world use cases and context for the abstract theory they learn at school.

It also helps to know why something works, as it allows for better visualisation and thus understanding of problems and concepts. If an unusual problem comes up in an exam, understanding is what will get the correct answer. Being able to derive things is far more useful in the long term (in both exams and further study) than just remembering things.

No rote learning. It definitely has its value but students don't need a tutor to learn things by heart; they can do it themselves.
