In maths, you must approach each step individually before you are able to tackle the full staircase; shortcuts are never an option. Unfortunately, however, there is a huge inconsistency between teachers in the care they give when explaining these steps, which is why maths is notorious for leaving so many pupils struggling.
Therefore, my tutoring approach focuses on utmost clarity, to ensure that every explanation is built upon clear and coherent steps so that at no point is the tutee left behind. Having been a former pupil to both brilliant, and illogical teachers, I can fully empathise with the student being taught by the latter and can use this to get into the mindset of a learner struggling just as I once did too.
Once I have identified exactly where the learner requires help, I will determine and apply the most suitable learning approach, and at the end of the session provide further material for them to practise with. This may comprise questions I construct myself, or relevant problems plucked from past papers, whose marking schemes I have extensive experience navigating around.
I commit fully to all areas of my work and will accommodate any schedule you are most comfortable with, so long as it does not clash with university lectures. Moreover, I will be available every day to answer any questions the tutee may have and would encourage them to get in touch if they require help. I hope I get the opportunity to help you obtain the grades you require, and I look forward to instilling mathematical confidence into the next generation.
I am a third-year student of Mathematics at the University of Glasgow and currently live in the city centre of Glasgow. Educated at Firrhill High School in Edinburgh, I received an A1 in my National Five, Higher and Advanced Higher maths exams and continue to work to a high standard in maths today. I am a friendly, outgoing, and sociable individual who is always keen on meeting new people and would love to demonstrate this in person!
