A 20 year old friendly, enthusiastic civil engineering student at Newcastle University predicted a 2-1. I have 35 points in IB and A* and A in GCSE Maths and Physics.
I often tutor my sister in Maths and Physics: she says I explain things in a way that even her teacher can't do! I think it is because I know the confusion and frustration of not understanding concepts in these fields. I want to help you reach that light-bulb moment: when all at once, it makes sense. I will do this by going step by step through the problems you are stuck on, prompting you in the right direction with questions along the way. There is no point in just telling you the answer, I want YOU to find the solution: you just need a leg-up.
I have tutored my sister throughout her education and have helped my mother with primary school teaching on several occasions. My sister's has always shown noticeable improvement in her grades if she chooses to have tuition sessions before exams etc.
In regards to travel: I will walk where I can but if a journey requires the Metro, that will be added onto the fee.
I am a 20 year old Civil Engineering student at Newcastle University. I would describe myself as meticulous, honest and a creative problem solver.

WORK EXPERIENCE AND VOLUNTEERING
Ticket and Social Media Rep January 2017 onwards
I am currently working as a club rep for SoulJam and LOOP, two events coordinators in Newcastle. This entails selling tickets and promoting online which suits my social nature whilst exercising my ability to pitch sales and technological skills with social media. I have to personally approach individuals for sales and manage my own ticket money; I am proud of this as an opportunity to show my independent responsibility and resourcefulness.
Odd Jobs June 2015 – August 2015
For the summer after secondary school, I completed odd jobs for local residents in my area; handing out flyers advertising my service. This gave me experience with essentially running a tiny business: finding clients, negotiating work and delivering it.
Charity Shop Volunteering February 2015 – April 2015
I volunteered at Sevenoaks ‘Hospice in the Weald’ Charity Shop for two months. Most of my work consisted of sorting through donated items and putting them on the display or taking them to the warehouse. This required my ability to follow instructions and take initiative during busy periods.
Decorating June 2014
For a three weeks I worked full-time as a decorator on a project restoring a gîte in the south of France; painting, plastering and wall-filling. This honed my skill to work to a very high standard, while acting under a considerable time pressure due to the scale of the work to be completed.
HOBBIES AND INTERESTS
Philosophy Society Treasurer
I was a member of the committee which organises all events for the university Philosophy Society last year and this year I am acting as Treasurer on the leading body of the society. Along with handling the finances, I also perform a lot of the secretarial work: organising events and promoting the society. This requires a lot of teamwork working with the committee, and also leadership to run the society.
In 2014 I acted as a Delegate in the International Model United Nations in The Netherlands, where I had to collaborate with other international students to create and debate our own UN Resolution. This displayed my ability to effectively communicate and work in a team with people from vastly different cultures whom I had never met.
Ethan has a passion for learning and sharing this passion with others. He has successfully tutored other family members, helping them to achieve excellent results in both Maths and Physics.
Patient and knowledgeable in his chosen fields. Extremely honest and trustworthy.
