I am a 2nd year Medic at Swansea University, with a true passion and energy for teaching and mentoring. I've had extensive experience of teaching during my previous degree and my time working within hospitals. I am particularly strong at teaching students between the ages of 7-17 and always believe there is a bit more room for improvement. Having acheived A*AA in Mathematics, Biology & Chemistry at A Level, I have amassed a strong set of organisational skills and a certified proficiency in teaching Mathematics up to GCSE Level. I also teach Biology & Chemistry up to A2-Level.
I have been tutoring for 2 years, mainly at GCSE and A-Level. During university I also mentored GCSE pupils struggling to meet deadlines, encouraging them to pursue higher education and helping them to organize their schedules accordingly. I also assisted children struggling with Mathematics during my time in 6th form. Along with these skills, I have also tutored my 12 year old sister and other students at GCSE Level. My friendly and personable nature makes it incredibly easy for me to engage and communicate with others, along with my drive, passion and determination to teach and pass on knowledge.
I believe in laying down the fundamentals of every topic first, and tend to follow the exam syllabus and incorporate exam papers early on. I find that this approach eases the stress of exams for students who may have not had much practice with them before. I ensure that the topic at hand is understood, with many practice questions and worked examples before advancing to more difficult concepts. I have a relaxed but firm attitude in my tutoring, and believe in giving constant encouragement every step of the way in order to bring out the best in each pupil. In setting out slightly different tasks in each session, the subject can become more interesting and much less monotonous. Above all, being kind and treating every student with respect no matter their level is absolutely key in the way I teach. I have found that this works wonders for their confidence and abilities.
