I am accepting all levels of understanding in the subject (maths) and work with individual classes so as to have a more student-focused approach; tailoring the complexity of my explanations accordingly to each student's ability. Due to the various ways of finding mathematical solutions in most topics, while I use the methods employed by the student's college teacher for easier understanding, I also encourage the use of alternative routes (formulas) to arrive at the same solution, if the student finds these easier.
Engineering Graduate with experience Tutoring Maths and Science subjects at and below GCSE level. Worked with classes of up to 5 people. Have used my knowledge in the subjects to attain a first-class degree in Mechanical Engineering.
Final year Mechanical Engineering student with experience mathematical and scientific processes, gained through academia and professional projects. Additionally have over a year of teaching experience.
