Cognitive Science graduate offering maths tutoring from all ages up to Higher

Methodology

My teaching method is student-centric: finding out what areas the student is and isn't comfortable in, and working through what cognitive mechanics underpin the areas of difficulty. Often when there is a fundamental misunderstanding of the maths, a varied approach of audio, visual, worked examples, practise and student-explanation based learning is best. In other cases, it often comes down to practise and confidence. My approach is to find out what the students needs are, to understand their way of thinking, and to work together to find what form of learning will best help the student.

Background

I am a MA Cognitive Science graduate, having recently completed my degree at the University of Edinburgh. I have been tutoring both 1 on 1 and group sessions for the past 3 years, from ages 8 to 18, including students with learning difficulties. I bring a wealth of experience and practical resources to help students towards both a better understanding of maths and improvements in examination performance.

Joseph's CV

Current Occupation and Personal Profile:
I have just graduated with a degree in Cognitive Science from the University of Edinburgh. I currently work as a maths tutor to small after-school classes. My degree has helped me develop a range of skills in programming, AI theory and statistical modelling. Through my background in social care, I have developed a keen interest in social welfare, sustainability and equality. I aim to learn how best to use my skills in the former to enact change in the latter.
