Being a maths graduate I appreciate that it is a subject based upon "building blocks". To learn a field of mathematics the foundation must be stable - starting and making sure the basics that make up a complex idea are in place is where I start. I always go for complete understanding from a student; this makes sure a student will not have to memorise and will always recall how to solve problems relating to real life!
I've worked both for tutoring companies and privately to teach GCSE mathematics to students of varying ability - from foundation students aiming to pass to students aiming for grade 9. I've taught individual students privately and classes of up to five through a tutoring company. Also taught A-Level core mathematics and mechanics informally upon request.

Tutor, Fine Tutors Euston and Edgware Road: July 2018 – October 2018
• I had to deal with students with different abilities and ages, students that have a variety between the time taken to understand a concept.
• A special revision pack ranging from “Step 1” to “Step 9” (representing the grades from 1 to 9 at GCSE) had to be followed.
• Time management and lesson plans were essential in order to keep the students on track to achieve their highest potential.
Team Member Star, Pret A Manger: June 2017-October 2017
• Efficiently had to handle customer queries and requests in a fast-paced, highly pressure and regularly changing environment.
• Handling food and drink; this had a strict set of regulations to meet the demands of customers with special dietary needs. As a result any mistake could lead to instant expulsion.
• Daily counts of stock, reordering and restocking. Any mistakes lead to a domino effect in sales next day. Became an expert on the stock on offer as a result.
• Regularly had to train new members to do the same jobs listed above.
Tutor, Private: September 2016-June 2017
• I was a tutor for GCSE and AS level Maths, where I taught children in groups of 1-3. These children were mainly family friends and people that recommended me from them.
• This allowed me to acquire the skills of multi-tasking and prioritising my responsibilities. I have also helped guide students with their homework and future learning paths such as apprenticeships & A-levels.
• It required lesson plans customised for each student’s strength and weaknesses to make sure they were all rounded in their mathemati-cal abilities.
Student senior tutor, Park High School: September 2014 - June 2015
• Like before, the kids at hand were of a spectrum of abilities, some being very gifted and able to grasp new concepts quickly, others needing a concept to be explained several times. The children were hard to deal with at times, making excessive noise at inappropriate times, this needed patience to deal with.
Work experience, Kenmore Primary School: June 2014
• This was my first experience in a classroom, specifically with small kids of ages 6-7.
• With younger kids, although their abilities are of a smaller spectrum, patience is still required as young kids can tend to have their minds wander around a lot.
Additional Experience and Positions of Responsibility
• Available on demand.
Dissertation writing, QMUL: January 2019- April 2019
• For mathematics students at our university it was optional to do a third-year project, I chose mine to be around the Group theory field of Algebra.
• My paper was titled “Classification of Simple Finite Groups” mainly focusing on Lie type groups.
• Had to learn using a new program from scratch (LaTeX) in a three-month timescale whilst simultaneously researching information to put on the paper.
• Also available on demand.
Marketing and sales associate, Al-Ahsan, Cricklewood: September 2016 – June 2016
• I worked with Al-Ahsan selling and advertising group travel packages for business, leisure and pilgrimage trips to the Middle East. Group sizes for pilgrimages tended to be the biggest and could anywhere from 100 (Umrah) to 350 (Hajj) people.
• Booking cars, flights, and hotel arrangements for high value clients to and from London is a regular activity. Accounting and money balance in Excel was a regular activity as a result.
• Visiting embassies in London for client visa applications, in time for the clients’ departures.
• Receptionist role; the company needed a strict logbook for visitors. This included greeting clients in person and over the phone.
