Civil engineering (nearly) masters graduate offering academic tutoring, focusing on maths up to GCSE level in London

Methodology

I have only tutored young students (under 9) before but the same methods apply; what is it that you're stuck on? Can we approach this from a different angle that would make it clearer? Often, I find that a lack of understanding is not due to the student's cleverness, just their interpretation of a question.

Background

I am about to graduate with a MEng degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Sheffield. I studied maths, further maths, geography, and physics at A Level, and also similar subjects at GCSE, including the compulsory subjects. I have also worked with young people through being a scout volunteer.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £5
Rate for online lessons : £10/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £50
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £100

Details

If you cancel more less than 2 hours for the lesson, you still have to pay as it is likely that I would have already left to go to the lesson or made plans around it.
