Mathematics and statistics tutoring for primary and secondary school students in Edinburgh. Taught by a lively second year undergraduate student of Mathematical, Statistical and Actuarial Sciences at

Methodology

I am a second year student of Mathematical, Statistical and Actuarial Sciences at Heriot Watt University, predicted a first class degree. As a friendly and patient tutor, my teaching style appeals to all styles of learning. I place a lot of importance in understanding the requirements of my students and encouraging passion for my subject.

Experience

I have experience mentoring and tutoring young secondary school students in mathematics (11/12 year olds who were below the national average) during my time at Sixth Form. I also have experience explaining difficult concepts to my peers often at university. However, I am new to this style of tutoring.
