Mechanical engineering masters graduate offering maths and physics lessons in Glasgow or Edinburgh

Methodology

I like to approach each lesson and each student based on their specific needs, learning process and learning speed. I believe under the right circumstances and with the right amount of patience, any student can learn what they need to in order to achieve the highest possible grades. In practice, this means approaching every subject and problem from the fundamentals up in order to create a holistic understanding that will equip a student to solve any problem they are presented with, not just regurgitating the course material. I also believe in equipping students with methods to study and learn for themselves, by structuring and managing their learning so that they will find the best way for them to approach mathematical and physical science learning for the rest of their lives.

Background

I graduated with a masters with distinction in mechanical engineering from University of Strathclyde in July 2014, and have recently left a role carrying out research in the Bioengineering department at Strathclyde into neurological rehabilitation methods for spinal cord injured patients. During this time I took various tutorials in teaching engineering subjects to undergraduate students. I have published and presented my research carried out during and after my undergraduate at international research conferences (ASME PVP 2014 & INS Congress 2017). I am due to start a job in the aerospace industry as of September 2018, and am looking to tutor students part time until then.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £10/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £65
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £120
