- I'm a friendly 23 year old recent graduate who likes maths.
- I can teach at any level up to A-level, focussing on students in secondary school.
- Lessons taught involve a consistent structure of warm-up/recap, teaching of the new skill with examples, and finishing with harder examples to develop the skills learnt and memorise the techniques.
- I am able to travel to tutor anywhere in Leeds.
I am a recent engineering graduate who is now living in Leeds.
I achieved 2:1 at university, A in A-level maths and A* in GCSE maths.
My main teaching experience is working as a teaching assistant in a secondary school for a year before university, however I have also been tutoring peers and younger students throughout my education.
£15 for GCSE
£20 for A-level
I went to secondary school and sixth form at Roundhay School where I achieved 11 GCSEs (3 A*s, 6 As, 2 Bs) including English and Maths. I then went on to attain A-Level Maths, Physics and Chemistry achieving ABB respectively. I have graduated with a 2:1 MEng degree from Newcastle University.
• In 2014 I began full time work as a teaching assistant at Roundhay School. Here I worked with a wide variety of students aged 12-18, with a range of disabilities and learning difficulties. Behavioural management was a key aspect of the job as I was often working with some of the most difficult young adults in the school. This was unlike anything I had encountered before but I thrived at learning on the job, with patience being a key factor in my success. I was good at forming positive and friendly relationships with staff and pupils which was important in understanding authority levels and getting the best out of the students.
• During summer 2018 I had an electronic engineering placement with Centrica. This internship required me to work in a corporate environment and communicate nationwide to complete team projects. I often worked on the site of a power plant during its construction with an experienced team, developing my collaboration skills and technical knowledge as I delivered maintenance schemes for the electrical components within the plant.
• In autumn 2018 I had an industrial placement in the Electrical Power department at Newcastle University, in particular researching heat extraction in solar flight. This placement gave me an insight to the design aspect of engineering and allowed me to perform experiments and gather results that were important to project development. As well as practical aspects I was also given simulation experience using CAD software such as Inventor.
• I have also had previous jobs as an assistant tennis coach and working in the ticket office/retail shop of a rugby club. Both of these roles improved my communication skills with customers greatly and has also shown my ability to learn quickly – especially in the ticket office where the computer system and staff team were often changed.
Throughout my adolescence I was an important member of a local football team. As a committed member I played weekly matches which I would often captain. I continued this passion at university where I played for an inter-mural 11-aside team. Last year I won defender of the season, another demonstration of my ability to thrive in a new team environment.
Last year I also had the honour of receiving my Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award. The award improved my confidence, decision making abilities and people skills, all of which were tested when I had to work in a team of people I hadn’t met before. Outside of working and education I achieved grade 5 in classical piano and have taught myself guitar, both of which I still play regularly.
