I am available to give lessons to a student of any age pre-university. During my lessons I like to use past papers and questions, and subject-specific study to focus on key areas that a student finds difficult. I am very friendly and would never shout at you for getting something wrong! I am also very open to whatever methods may suit my tutee best! Patience is the key - believe you can get there in the end and you will! :-)
I am currently finishing my degree in Mathematics with Study in Europe at the university of Sheffield. I started tutoring Mathematics in 2014, during my A-Level year at school, for which I studied French, Mathematics and Further Mathematics. I have taught around 10 students, mostly at GCSE-level. I received 12 GCSE's A*-A, including A* in Maths, and have A-Levels in French, Maths and Further Maths, grades AAB respectively.
If you would like to cancel a lesson, this must be done at least 12 hours before

SKILLS AND ACHIEVEMENTS
Organisation - As part of my role working for International Quest, I had many opportunities to develop my organisational skills. It was essential that I was always on time and knew where I needed to be and when, to set a good example to others and to be able to effectively lead the groups and their leaders to give them an enjoyable experience.
Communication - I had the chance to progress my communication skills while working as an office assistant. The company manages several hundred houses, and during the period in which I worked there, almost all of these houses required checking. This greatly involved communicating with the other members of the inspection team, contacting landlords to hand over our reports and telephoning contractors to organise repairs, to name a few of the tasks. These had to be undertaken quickly and effectively to meet deadlines of new tenancies, so communication was key to this.
Time Management – This is a skill that I have learned and developed over the years, whilst studying both at school and university, and particularly during my year abroad in France. I am often required to hand in written or practical pieces of homework, as well as attend my lessons, and I also partake in a number of extra-curricular activities such as playing volleyball and visiting a French family. With all of this considered, it is important that I organise my schedule and my time well to be able to complete each task successfully.
Team Working - Whilst working as a kitchen assistant I had the chance to develop my team working skills. Completing one meal required cooperation between several stations in the kitchen – clean dishes from the sink, sauces from the microwaves, salads from the starters section, to name a few. Because of this, every member of the kitchen including myself had to work as team to ensure each element was ready at the same time to produce the highest quality meal, and in the most effective manner possible.
Leadership – During my last year at school I was also a member of the sixth-form committee. This enabled me to develop my leadership skills as I acted as a role model for other students, and as an ambassador for the school within the local community.
Resilience – I have shown and developed my resilience during a year abroad in France. From the first day I was met with challenges that I found tough and potentially daunting, such as opening a French bank account, finding my way round the new city in which I live, and exploring information about my course from my professors, all this being in a second language. The fact that this year was in an area and country virtually unknown to me has made tasks all the more challenging. I have therefore developed a stronger ability to bounce back after any setbacks that I have encountered.
Attained a bronze Duke of Edinburgh award whilst at school.
Very confident with the use of every day ICT skills, for example using Microsoft Office and sending e-mails.
Can speak French to a Higher Advanced Level¬ – completed GCSE’s and A-Levels and am studying this at university. I am also continuing this currently as part of my year abroad.
I also hold a full valid UK driving licence.
