Personal Description:

I have just finished my PGDE at the University of Strathclyde. Prior to starting the course I worked for 1.5 years working as a trainee actuary. Prior to that I worked as a mechanical engineer for 7 years, having graduated from Strathclyde with a Master of Mechanical Engineering in 2008.

Tutoring Experience:

I have just completed Strathclyde’s first ever accelerated teaching program. This program condenses the university class portion of the program so that one long five month placement replaces the multiple placements of 3-5 weeks of the normal course.

I have just completed my five month placement and have recieved very positive feedback from peers at the school and from tutors at Strathclyde who came on three occasions to observe me.

During my placement, I worked with first years through to classes working towards the National 5 qualification. Three of my five classes were working towards the National 5 qualification, so I’m very familiar with the course material, the past papers and the marking schemes.

Tutoring Approach:

I work to ensure that my pupils understand concepts thoroughly so that they may apply them in situations they have not yet encountered, such as exam questions they have not seen before.

I’m very personable and create an environment in which my pupils feel comfortable asking lots of questions, which is key to their improvement.
