Chemistry University student providing Top Maths & Chemistry lessons(all levels) in London/Surrey

Methodology

I am currently in my second year of study for a BSc in Chemistry at the University of Surrey looking to tutor Maths and Chemistry Students of any level e.g. KS1, KS2, KS3, GCSE & A level. My lessons consist of explaining basic concepts and formulas before going through several example questions. I am a big believer in repetition and practise so I set homework's which are packs of past exam questions tailored to that topic. At the start of every lesson I would go through homework with the students to make sure they are confident on the topic and to highlight key mistakes. When I feel students are confident enough on a topic I like to set timed-exercises to not only monitor the progress of students but to give them experience of working under pressure. This will be extremely important in strengthening their exam technique.

Background

I have worked for a tuition company called Magical Maths helping run after-school maths clubs for key stage 1 and 2 students of 10-20 students at various schools in Surrey for a period of 8 months. In addition to this, I also previously tutored groups of 2-3 GCSE Maths students on Saturday mornings through a company called Team Up for 6 months. What the Students at Team UP have achieved thanks to my tutoring lessons is that their Grades have improved from being Grade D GCSE Maths Students to A/B GCSE Maths students. I have also increased the confidence of many younger students ranging from age 5-11 through my Magical Maths classes motivating them so that they no longer see Maths as chore.

Work experience

Teacher-Magical Maths-14/9/2016 to 05/04/2017

Running Maths clubs for Magical Maths has helped me to develop my problem-solving skills as unexpected issues can arise on a daily basis in a school environment. For example, 15 minutes of lesson time was once lost due to an unexpected fire drill but through creativity and leadership I was able to keep topics at the same pace and make up for the time lost.

Working at Magical Maths has required me to work with different groups of people from different schools. This has been a very pleasurable experience for me because it enables me to embrace their culture towards learning and by relating myself to them I have been able to make new friends. This will be particularly important in a working environment because I would need to liaise with my colleagues.

Tutor-Team Up-17/9/2016 to 18/2/2017

Being a Team Up tutor has helped me to become an active listener and complex problem solver. Through coordination and critical thinking I have been able to plan lessons and prioritise larger portions of lesson time on more difficult topics to maximise learning for students. By paying attention to detail through asking intelligent questions I have been able to make sure that mistakes can be overcome and that my students understand what they are learning

Sales Assistant- Ryman- 8/7/2016 to 15/8/2016

During my time at Ryman my communication skills improved greatly. At my position I was given the task of serving customers and dealing with their queries. This was a position I thrived in as the staff were friendly and made work both enjoyable and rewarding. This boosted my confidence so that I was able to approach customers asking if they needed assistance.

Admin Volunteer-King’s College Hospital- 1/9/2015 to 19/10/2015
Night Shift worker- Sports Direct- 31/07/2015 to 10/10/2015

Working at Sports Direct improved my ability to organize tasks efficiently so that I regularly broke target times for tasks. For example, I was once given a scenario where I had to unpack about 100 T-shirts in 45 minutes but was able to unpack and sort the T-shirts in 35 minutes. My former position at Burger King enabled me to develop key teamwork skills as I was given an insight into the process of making the food.

Being a student representative last year required me to handle a great deal of responsibility and a willingness to listen to others is key to making improvements in my degree course and is why I was chosen for this position. Attending regular meetings shows I have a commitment to the position while respect is key at these meetings as well as being polite and well-mannered has helped me to have greater influence on decisions.

I.T. Skills
Computer Literate:
• Microsoft WORD, Excel and PowerPoint, ChemDraw
• Windows 10, MacOS

Working as an administrator at King’s College Hospital I used MS Excel to update rotas and attendance records, and I used Word to log patients queries. My role also required me to print meal vouchers, to scan documents and organise documents.

Leisure
• Reading scientific books and other publications such as New Scientist
• Keep fit through jogging / gym and football
