Double Major in Mathematics and Critical English Studies (3rd year), in Edinburgh

Methodology

I believe teaching is all about engagement, and student involvement. I strive to provide you with the knowledge and tools to get and A+ on that assignment, but to solve problems on your own. Lessons will be be instructional, but based on a guided inquiry model. The first 5 - 10 mins will be dedicated to an explanation of the issues and struggles you have encountered with the assignment. Followed by a review of all relevant information, and then we shall work through problems and brainstorm together.

I am able to teach a variety of subjects and topics up to first year university level.

Experience

I am a 3rd year student doing a double major in Mathematics and English. I have excelled in both subjects throughout high school and University. I have achieved a grade of 5 in AP Calculus AB, AP English Literature, and AP English Composition. I have achieve a grade 4 in AP Physics, and AP French Language and Culture.
I have completed examinations with the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, being awarded a distinction in multiple disciplines ranging from monologue to improvisation. I have extensive knowledge and training in critical and culture studies of drama both past and present.
