Currently a PhD student looking to tutor Maths in my spare time.

Methodology

I like to teach using examples - but will tailor my lessons to how each individual learns best. It is always best to ensure that the individual is getting the most out of each lesson - therefore, I will encourage them to e-mail me feedback or pointers if they feel they are not being fully gauged within each lesson.

Experience

I have recently graduated with a first class master's degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Glasgow. I have been apart of tutoring classes within the university (teaching high levels maths) to other undergrad students whilst I continue with my PhD.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £3
Rate for online lessons : £18/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £75
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £150

Details

School level maths will be at the rate above.

For additional (i.e. advanced higher or university level) will be at extra cost.

I will only ask for travel costs if the journey is expensive.

the night.

on my feet).
