Personal Description:

I am currently a student studying for a masters degree in electronic engineering at the University of Southampton. I finished my first and second years with a first, and am now in my 3rd year.
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 play guitar in a band, do odd-jobs as an event photographer and can ride a unicycle.

Note that I will only be able to tutor during university holiday periods (I'll be in Southampton during term-time). These are 3 weeks around Christmas, 4 weeks around Easter and an inordinate number of weeks during the summer.

Tutoring Experience:

I've had two previous clients, both being taught GCSE maths.
This is my first time being a tutor. But I have had previous experience leading teams as a patrol leader in the Scouts. I also get a lot of practice explaining things succinctly in conversations between peers and assessors at university.

Tutoring Approach:

To sum up; lots of drawings and analogies because I find they are the easiest to understand. Rote learning has it's place when remembering basic principles and formulas, but I find that people benefit the most from learning why things work, so that if an unusual or uncommon question comes up in an exam they can derive the answer themselves, rather than relying on standard questions, especially once more complex parts of subjects are uncovered. It will also benefit the tutee more in the long run if they decide to take things further in a certain area of study.
There's not much point teaching things that can be rote learned anyway, you can do that out of a book. A tutor should provide insight and context to the subject (which hopefully I can).
