MSc graduate offering tutoring in maths and natural sciences (in Sheffield or online)

Methodology

My teaching method entirely depends on the student. I like to try different approaches first to see what is best, and base my teaching around the student's needs. Lessons will however generally involve lots of practice problems which I prepare in advance, and be closely linked to what the student is working on in class at the time, so I will be looking at class notes and, depending on the student, preparing homework together.

I am happy to teach students in both group classes and individual sessions, though I believe that most students benefit more from individual teaching. Up to A-Levels, all above-mentioned subjects can be taught (maths, biology, chemistry, physics, ...). I can also teach biology and biochemistry at degree level.

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions (also via E-Mail - (concealed information)

Background

I recently graduated from the University of Sheffield with a Master of Science in Molecular Medicine and have a Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biotechnology. My undergraduate degree, aside from most disciplines of biology in more depth, included basic modules in all science subjects (maths, physics, chemistry, computer science), all of which I can teach.

Having started working as a tutor in 2011, when I was still in school myself, I have a lot of experience teaching both group classes and individual tutoring sessions. I like to meet students where they are and enjoy finding the right method of teaching to help a particular student, because I know how individual learning is. Especially in large classes, teachers often don't have the capacity to meet each student's needs, which is often the reason for bad grades. I'm particularly experienced in helping students that lack confidence in their own abilities.

WORK EXPERIENCE

Tutor | Aachen, Germany | 2011-2018 part-time
My secondary school had a program that involved sixth form students tutoring groups of younger students in English and Maths after school, which I joined in year 10 and was a part of until I graduated. After finishing school, I started tutoring independently, teaching students of all age groups. From 2017 onwards, I also worked for the German tutoring agency Abacus.
• Attended workshops on tutoring and preparation of group learning sessions
• Taught both group sessions and individual lessons
• Taught a variety of subjects (Maths, English, French, German, Latin and Biology) to students of different age groups (between 10-18 years of age), including A-Level preparation

Research assistant | Fraunhofer SCAI | St. Augustin, Germany | 2015-2017 part-time
As a research assistant in the bioinformatics department of Fraunhofer SCAI, I worked as part of the team building a computable model of Epilepsy. This mainly involved coding and later giving feedback on younger student’s work, but also the preparation of presentations and academic writing, including a publication. Since Fraunhofer is an academic unit with strong links to industry, emphasis is on working to meet client’s requirements.
• Learned to work independently but also as part of a team, including managing students in the last year
• Improved time management and organisation skills to meet deadlines
Research assistant | RWTH Aachen University | Aachen, Germany | 2017-2018 part-time
During the second part of my undergraduate degree, I worked as a research assistant in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the RWTH Aachen Medical School. This meant working independently on my own laboratory project, developing, planning and executing my experiments. Furthermore, I assisted my supervisor in teaching a laboratory practical for medical students.
• Learned to take initiative and work independently more than ever before
• Assisting in teaching the practical, I was responsible for quizzing students on theoretical background and teaching the experimental set-ups that I was using for my own work
