Since there are many different exam boards for maths, the curriculum varies, but what is often the case is students struggle with specific concepts, which in turn slow them down later on down the syllabus. I have learnt throughout university that often the easiest way to learn is through simplicity, and then once you have gained confidence, the more complex results follow more easily.
I will ask the student which areas of their syllabus they struggle with more, start with simple examples (maybe go through homework) and then onto past exam paper questions.
Throughout university and sixth form I have always worked in small groups of friends to teach each other different parts of the course. Maths (mainly Statistics) is prevalent in most degrees nowadays, and I have experience helping fellow students (who do not study maths) in the maths aspects of their course.
During sixth form I also tutored family friends in GCSE level maths.
I am an ambitious, inquisitive and highly perceptive candidate with a strong desire to apply and enhance my interests and academic knowledge in mathematical modelling and statistical analysis to real world scenarios and problems. I am seeking opportunities to be able to use current and acquire new skills so that I can maximize the beneficial impact for people, businesses, and my community in areas that matter to these stakeholders.
I have a particular interest in how different people see and understand the world in mathematical terms; I believe everyone has this innate ability, often it just requires a change in perspective to grasp concepts. I believe I am very good at being able to change my own perspective to help others learn as best they can.

I enjoy opportunities to help others by sharing my interests and abilities while at the same time developing my interpersonal skills and awareness of others. While studying for my A Levels I taught GCSE mathematics in my free time to younger students.
I have a keen interest in outdoor pursuits especially walking and hiking and completed my Gold Expedition for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.
