A Level Student helping with Maths, Physics and Economics to tackle tough GCSES

Methodology

The content of my lessons I will be teaching is to GCSE students.
The way I will teach GCSE maths, physics or economics is the student will chose a topic they struggle with or if not needed I will teach them topics through their exam board specification.
Summarising/Highlighting/Re-reading have been proven to be inefficient ways of revising for exams. I was first surprised as well but after I watched a video about revision methods it had become clear to me. I will use a method called active-recall when teaching (not to mention this had helped me with my GCSES). Active recall is essentially just retrieving information from your mind. Practice tests are a great example of active recall, they require brainpower and existing information that you already know and puts it all to use. This is also a great identifier for any weaknesses. There has been a lot of research done on this method and I will be happy to provide the sources if wanted.
The format of the lesson I will teach:
1. Teaching the content: basically what the title says, I will teach the content of maths/physics/economics by showing how to answer specific questions and if its a concept I will prepare notes before hand and explain that topic.
2. You teach me: Now that I have passed on the information to the student, the student will now teach me what they have learnt. If there are any gaps in the knowledge I will make sure to correct that by explaining anything again before we move on. This implements active recall as it doesn't throw information at a person, but requires them to understand what is being said.
3. Exam practice: Using online resources I will find exam questions related to the topic / exam board and the student will answer them. Again this puts active recall to use by making sure what the students have learnt and applying it in an exam based situation.



Background

I am a student currently studying A-Levels (Maths, Physics, Economics). Being the first year to do the new GCSE's I understand the difficulty of the new GCSE Maths. During my mocks I had only passed maths with a grade 4. Many sixth forms/colleges and even universities may require you to have a minimum of a grade 7 in maths if you wish to get into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) fields. With this in mind I had worked extremely hard for 2 months with the help of my teachers and friends to help me get a better understanding of maths. On results day I had achieved a high grade 7 (equivalent to an A) with only 2 marks away from a grade 8 (equivalent to an A*). While I now study A-Level maths I have the required knowledge to help anyone get to a grade 9. The complexity of A-level's had made me realise that maths is not that difficult and that with the right help, what seems difficult can actually become easier with practice and dedication.

My background in physics has always been good. I was the last year doing the old specification of GCSE physics and had achieved an A overall after doing triple science (core, addition and further additional sciences). I have got a great track record in physics and have performed well on many occasions. With the knowledge of A-level physics I can simplify the understanding of GCSE's and go through any problems, topics or concepts.

With economics I have a passion to study this and absolutely love the subject. In year 11 teachers had a tendency of leaving in my school. I must have had 4 different teachers, meaning there was so much different information that was being passed onto us that there was no clear understanding of what we had to learn. Using revision guides and other resources I was one of the small amount of people in my class to achieve an A.
