Maths with Theoretical Physics uni student teaching GCSE & A-Level Maths in Plymouth

Methodology

Personally I believe the teaching method depends on the student I'm working with. Different people learn in different ways and thus being adaptable to each person's individual needs is key.
Technique and Pattern are the core aspects of understanding maths at this level and so would be the starting point of teaching. Then moving towards working through examples and past papers as they are the most straightforward and beneficial method for developing maths abilities.
PLC's are particularly useful and going through each aspect in specific detail will allow the student to understand in depth the entire criteria for their subject

Background

I got an A* in both GCSE and A-Level maths while also studying further maths
I have had work experience in a school working in Maths classrooms - specifically working with individual students rather than a whole class
My younger sister and I frequently work together on her maths, she is 10 years old and has been told she is working at the same level as a regular maths student in year 9

Ben's CV

Ben Chanter Curriculum Vitae

Personal Statement

For as long as I can remember I've enjoyed and excelled at maths so for my work experience I chose to assist in the maths department at a secondary school. This has involved close communications with students and through this I have developed patience and a talent in understanding. Having recently completed A-Levels and currently studying at Plymouth University, I can relate to the workload and difficulties of education. I also spend a lot of time with my siblings (all 6 of them), as well as other friends and family. This has led me to be confident and calm in social interactions.

I believe you would find me well-suited to this role given my previous relevant experience and excellent grasp of Mathematics

Work Experience

Oakbank School, Reading
June 2016 Age- 17
Teaching Assistant
I took this opportunity to work specifically in the Maths department, helping GCSE students gain a deeper understanding of the subject. This taught me how to focus my attention onto one specific student and work well with them, learning how to develop their skills specifically for that individual.

Snakes and Ladders, Abingdon
Work experience June 2014 Age- 15
Part-time Employment: February 2014 to August 2014
I spent my work experience at Snakes and Ladders. This gave me the opportunity to learn about working closely with customers and taught me respect and composure – especially when dealing with difficult customers.
I was informed that I had shown great potential by my manager and was offered a part-time job.

Ben's a really clever guy and really knows his stuff but he's really great because of his organic style and the way he prioritises what you're weaker at and how he sees it. He's also fantastic because it does feel like a friend is helping you out and not a teacher. He has been a real help for me and my exams. If you need a tutor who can push you without making you feel inadequate and who can really support you, this is the guy.
