MSc Engineering Student Offering Lessons in Maths and other Engineering Related Subjects from School to Undergraduate Level

Methodology

I'm looking to help tutor either high school or undergraduate university students in any subjects that I may have studied, the main ones including maths, physics, mechanics, fluid dynamics, solid mechanics and thermodynamics. If the subject you are looking for isn't listed here, please feel free to ask and I will let you know if I would be a suitable tutor!

I mostly find a walk through of the solution then practising examples is the best way to help people understand, especially when it comes to preparing for exams. I like to be quite visual with most subjects and often use diagrams to illustrate concepts.

Experience

I'm currently studying an MSc in Advanced Mechanical Engineering with Aerospace at the University of Strathclyde having received a 1st class degree in Mechanical Engineering from Dundee University. My tutoring experience is with teaching the bagpipes at school level for 4 years and my classmates in my undergraduate degree often came to me for help over the four years.

Throughout my Mechanical Engineering degree Scott provided consistent guidance and help whenever I asked. Scott's skills lied with his serial expertise in each module and was able to explain problems in a way that I could understand. I always felt reassured when he helped me so I could not recommend him enough!

I've known Scott for over 3 years now and I cant recommend him highly enough! He is not only knowledgeable in his field, but also patient and will want the best for his tuttees. As a tutor Scott is reliable and inspiring and as a person he is funny, friendly and approachable. If you need some help, Scott is the right guy to teach you and ignite your passion about Engeneering!
