Maths Tutor for secondary school level, 3rd Year Mathematics Student, Edinburgh (Tollcross)

Methodology

My name is Fergus Gibson, i give lessons to primary and secondary school students. I posit a theory and use worked examples to get the student to understand the problem and know how to tackle it. I believe. I am patient and will try and word any problems in a manner that will make them easier to understand if the raw mathematical terms seem to complicated.

Experience

I have past experience with peer tutoring in secondary school with 1st and 2nd year secondary school students in mathematical and physics based subjects. I spent an hour every week helping them understand particular areas of work and assist them learn by working through examples and offering encouragement.
