Engineering MEng graduate looking to expand my Maths + Science tutoring roles carried out alongside my degree

Methodology

I prioritise making sure you feel comfortable and confident being tutored. I do this by often asking if you have any questions and wholey encourage you to step in. I believe encouragement is key, as being overcritical only damages motivation. I try to ensure studying remains an enjoyable experience by using only constructive criticism, by using multiple alternative approaches, and by ensuring tasks are never unbearably overwhelming.

Experience

I am an engineer with a learning centered around Maths. I have just graduated from the University of Sheffield, completing my Masters degree. I have tutored 60+ lessons using MyTutor and have experience working as a TA across the last 3 years. I really enjoy tutoring, particularly because of the fulfilment it gives me knowing I am helping others progress.

Paul's CV

RE: Superprof Tutor Ad

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a Chemical Engineering MEng graduate from the University of Sheffield writing to advertise my interest into an online tutor role through the Superprof service. Please find my accompanying CV following. I hope this is found to be of interest to you.

I am driven to apply for this role on the basis of key features of the opportunity. I am already an enthusiastic tutor and regularly tutor multiple students weekly, enjoying the positive impact my support can have. I am hopeful to continue this fulfilling passion through your role. Given the current worldwide climate with COVID-19, I am hopeful this opportunity shall provide me with a close experience to that of other TEFL schemes.

As portrayed in my CV, my academia encompasses a wide range of skills, all of which have required various learning styles and approaches, giving me a greater understanding of how to overcome challenges faced by students. My studies have helped mature me in preparation for a role like this, with an understanding of how to approach a wide range of problems.

Experience at MyTutor has developed my ability to produce solutions to a wide variety of tasks and manage work across many projects simultaneous in a business environment. This has helped me gain an understanding of the nature of work in education, whilst teaching me the importance of being able to embrace change fast with an adaptable attitude. Furthermore, having



worked with a diverse range of students I am appropriately prepared to deal with independent educational demands.

Having finished my studies, I am intending to demonstrate what I have learnt from my experiences so far to a new challenge. I am looking forward to applying my professional skillset in industrial contexts within this role, expanding the current role of I have as a tutor. This position shall act as an opportunity for me to portray the focus I have had throughout my studies and focus on delivering professional education. My excitement is heightened further by the prospect of working with people of similar aspirations and driving to produce high quality education.

I am hopeful that my application depicts my enthusiasm for this post, in addition to my understanding of the importance of the role. I would be very happy to discuss with you further about my suitability for joining your team in the near future.

Thank you for your time and consideration with respect to my application. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions regarding further information. I look forward to hearing from you.


Yours Sincerely,
Paul Jenkinson
