Final year Mathematics Student offering bespoke GCSE and A-Level Maths and Physics Tuition

Methodology

I will deliver lessons to every level up-to undergraduate, I have in the past given advice to final year and MSc Psychology students in uses of SPSS and Hypothesis testing. My teaching method is that I will always asses the needs of the student first, and tailor a teaching plan that will best facilitate their academic development.

Background

I'm in my final year of BSc (Hons) Mathematics with Finance. I progressed to Mathematics after successful completion of a Foundation Year in Mathematics, Physics, Further Mathematics and Engineering with an overall grade of 75%. My key focuses at university is Statistics, Data Analysis and Financial Mathematics. I have a very deep and thorough understanding of many topics in Mathematics and their applications in Physics and Finance.

During my time at School, and University I have undertaken many courses in Mental Health and Learning disability awareness. I have experience in working particularly with people with Autism and Dyspraxia. I have also have experience in helping and mentoring people with Depression, and Anxiety related disorders. I am an active member of MIND and I have helped with campaigns for Positively Autistic in the past and I sat on the University Of Plymouth's Disabled Students Forum.
