Mechanical Engineering Graduate offering Maths Chemistry and Physics up to A level in Edinburgh

Methodology

From my previous tutoring experience I have found that students struggling in the sciences often have a one fundamental gap in knowledge and I have a bit of a knack for figuring out which piece of understanding is missing. It is vitally important, particularly in scientific subjects, to have a thorough understanding of the basics, and then we can move on up from there. I am a relaxed teacher and I encourage students to reach conclusions themselves which helps solidify knowledge and increases confidence. I will discuss with you the intensity to which I tutor, for example setting homework as I do not want to put any extra pressure on the student.

Background

I am a mechanical engineering graduate from the University of Strathclyde. I grew up in Oxford and took Chemistry, Physics, Maths and Further Maths at A level and received A*,A,A,B. I would be able to tutor these subjects up A level and other subjects such as, English, Spanish, Geography and History up to GCSE.

Catriona's CV

I am a hardworking, passionate engineering graduate from the University of Strathclyde. I would consider myself easy to work with and a team player. I am good at following instructions and am very keen to gain any experience you could offer me. I grew up in Oxford studying at Magdalen College School where I obtained my A Level results and before that at Wychwood School. Whilst at school I took part in many plays, including one which we took the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013. This taught me a lot about confidence and people skills which I have managed to transfer to my work in pubs over the last three summers.

I have had four summers’ work experience in local pubs where I have mainly been a waiter or on the bar staff, however in the summer of 2015 I gathered more and more responsibilities such as opening up and closing down the bar and restaurant and counting the till. I worked behind the bar at The Oxford Festival of the Arts 2016, as well as tending bar we assisted the catering team for larger events such as gigs and lectures.
