Maths and Philosophy graduate looking to help tutor maths for all ages in Branston/Lincoln

Methodology

I believe it is important to tailor sessions to the individual needs of the student. It is a useful aspect of one-to-one tutoring that we can focus on what the student is struggling with and move on to something else until they are ready.

It is also important to try and make it fun and engaging. I believe that incorporating games into lessons or trying to make problems relatable and practical help make what can often be a boring and dry subject more interesting. From my personal experience, I have found that I learn better when I am interested in the topic. For this reason, I believe tutoring is an opportunity to help make a subject interesting, which will improve understanding.

Background

I am new to tutoring, although throughout school and university I would help my friends who were struggling. I have a friend from university who wasn't able to attend lectures regularly and I would help teach him the content he missed. My mum is a childminder and has been my entire life, so I have experience helping the children with their homework whenever they have struggled.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £15/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £60
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £100

Details

I don't currently have a car, so am restricted to where I can travel to by public transport. I am willing to travel anywhere that I can access with public transport, although this is cost permitting.

Personal Statement

Having recently graduated from the University of Sheffield with a first-class honours degree in Mathematics and Philosophy, I am looking to get into tutoring.

At university, I spent a lot of time working with my friends who were struggling with some of the content. At the time it was mutually beneficial because the more I helped them, the better I understood the content. I also learnt how different people learn in different ways and it is important to find a unique way in which to explain the content to each individual.


Employment

Waiter, Stokes High Bridge Café, Lincoln
(July 2013 – April 2015, July 2017 – September 2017)

While studying for my A-levels I had a Saturday job at a local independent café. I started as a bus-boy and this developed into a waiting role. I returned as a waiter in the summer of 2017, working up to seven days a week.

Bar Assistant, Compass Group, Sheffield
(July 2016 – April 2018)

During university, I worked at Sheffield United’s football ground, Bramall Lane, as a member of the match day hospitality staff.



Education

Branston Community Academy
(September 2008 – June 2015)


GCSEs: 7 A*s, 6 As (including A* in Mathematics, A in English Language, English Literature)

A-levels:
• General Studies: A
• History (AS only): C
• Mathematics: A*
• Physics: A
• Psychology: B


University of Sheffield – BSc (Hons) in Mathematics and Philosophy: 1st
(September 2015 – June 2018)


First Year Average: 78
Second Year Average: 80
Third Year Average: 81

In 2017 I received the Peter H Nidditch Prize in Philosophy. This is an annual award for the best coursework and examination performances in each of the three years of undergraduate study in philosophy at the University of Sheffield. I also received this award in 2018 for the best performance for a dual student in level 3 philosophy.

At school, I volunteered for a scheme that went into primary schools and assisted students who were struggling with learning to read by giving them weekly one-on-one lessons. Not all of the children showed great improvement at the end of my time with them, but they all started to enjoy reading more and would go home wanting to read stories, which they had never done before.

I am also a member of a rock and roll band who usually travel to Europe once or twice a year. These experiences have helped me learn how to cope in situations of high pressure, as we perform to crowds of sometimes thousands of people. They have also been fundamental in the development of my interpersonal skills. Organising these trips can often be very complicated, and I am usually responsible for ensuring everything runs smoothly. This involves booking tickets for trains/planes and regularly emailing the organisers regarding hotels bookings, transport plans and timings. These tasks can be particularly complicated when there is a language barrier!
