Personal Description:

Hi! I am second year Medical student studying at the University of Leicester. Although I may be a medical student, my favourite subject by far is maths. I love how maths is so practical in everyday life yet at the same time it helps explain the workings of our universe.

Tutoring Experience:

I have had numerous small teaching experiences throughout my life. I have participated in The West Bridgford School’s peer mentoring programme and Abbey Road Primary School’s mentoring programme, through which I helped other students with their academic studies. I also coached younger kids at my local badminton club for a number of months, helping beginners to understand the basics of the game and also helping more intermediate players improve their technique. Finally, I am currently enrolled as a Medic Parent at my Medical School, helping students in the year below with their studies and being a helping hand in their starting of university life.

Tutoring Approach:

As a person, I thoroughly enjoy helping others, and this is where tutoring comes in. I hope to help my students succeed in maths and try to develop in them the same passion I have for the subject.

As a teacher, I firmly believe in two concepts: one, that a person should always understand the basic concepts of a subject before moving on to the more intermediate topics; two, a student should learn at their own pace. This is the approach I take when teaching. In my first session, I will try to get to know you and then attempt to introduce you to key concepts. This introduction will allow me to get an idea of the pace I should go at when tutoring you. I will then in subsequent sessions begin to expand on those key concepts at your own pace and begin to introduce more challenging topics. Any person can memorise facts and figures, but to understand and be able to apply facts and figures is where the fruits of knowledge appear. In time, by taking this approach, you will in time be able to understand the subject and so be able to apply it in your everyday life. I will also help you learn the exam technique required to get the highest grades in the exam through past exam papers, having done my GCSE and A-Level exams in the past 3 years.
