I am very thorough in the way I approach my lessons. Compared to other A-Levels i believe maths is one of the easiest ones. There's no controversy when it comes to answers, it's either correct or incorrect, there may be multiple ways to approach questions but they will lead to the right solution if done correctly. This makes it one of the easiest A-Levels to prepare for. I firmly believe in leaving no stone upturned when it comes to learning and revision. Exposing yourself to every single type of question that has come up before and make sure absolutely everything needed to know is known is the key. After that it's just a matter of how well your brain can apply knowledge to the exact same type of questions but with a very slight twist. Intuition.
Soon to be a Mechanical Engineer as I will study this at Imperial College London. Currently working as an A-Level Maths and Further Maths teaching assistant at St Thomas the Apostle College. I've been an academic mentor since September 2016 and have seen 10 students through to complete Maths A-Levels with none achieving less than an A.

I am very enthusiastic, cheerful and confident, these are the characteristics help me to overcome any anxiety about new and changing environments. I’m not one to shy away from challenges or give up when “the going gets tough”. Positivity and optimism are things I bring to any environment I find myself in. I have effective communication skills and I can build good rapport organically. They allow effective team working and group coherence to take place. I have particularly good presentation skills and poise when addressing large audiences or leading group demonstrations. As my speciality is heavily maths based, I always find the best way to resolve any situation.
• TEACHING ASSISSTANT- Currently I’m an A-Level maths teaching assistant at St Thomas the Apostle College. My role is to have focus sessions with minor groups of students during the school week. This allows them to get any misconceptions/misunderstandings out of the way about anything they have done in their lessons. This is for 5 days a week however I’m presently looking for any work experience/placements with an engineering firm paid or unpaid alongside my role as a TA.
• GRANT THORNTON- A placement at Grant Thornton UK (11th-22nd July 2016) During my two-week placement I was mainly based in their Finsbury square office but travelled between there and their Bishopsgate office occasionally. I attended several meetings and attended a few angel investor events they facilitated. While there I had two separate tasks over the two-weeks. The first was to evaluate Grant Thornton’s school leavers scheme, SWOT analysis etc. and compare it to other big firms and what they offer school leavers/graduates. My second task was to assess the effectiveness of digital online platforms and their ease of use within SME’s for work/communications. Apps like Slack, Trello, Wunderlist paralleled to the stereotypical email system.
• YOUNG ENTERPRISE BUSINESS CHALLENGE- St Thomas Apostle Collage (October-April 2016) As a team, we had to develop our own product, brand and marketed it to the mass public. At the end of the competition, we won the award for best presentation (thanks to yours truly). The experience enabled me to conduct myself in a professional manner and study the behaviour of people financially.
• CAFOD – 55 Westminster Bridge Road SE17JB (January-March 2016) I volunteered as a representative for CAFOD (charity) at my school. In which some students and I created a fund raising scheme involving the public to raise money for water pumps in rural Kenya. It was challenging but with diligence, the task was seen through. It was non-profitable and out of sincere interest.
Education and Qualifications:
• Secondary and sixth form education as St Thomas the Apostle College on Hollydale Road, Nunhead, SE15 2EB. Achieved: 6A*’s, 3A’s and 1B for GCSE an A grade in Additional Maths, an FSMQ.
• BTEC level 2 Diploma in leadership and creation of a safer city for young people.
• A Gold certificate in the UK maths Challenge 2016.
• 2A*’s and an A in Maths. Further maths and Physics at A-Level.
• A passion for getting involved in my community made me join the Southwark youth council. While I was a member, we worked diligently to tackle issues facing youth in my borough. I gained better organisational skills and a deeper understanding of different types of individuals and social groups.
• I’m also a Lance Corporal for the 71st detachment London Irish Rifles, South East London Army Cadet force. Being a senior cadet with rank, I’ve gained maturity and I’m both an effective listener and quick learner as following instructions to the letter is principal in that line of work.
• Furthermore, I used to be an athlete for Herne Hill Harriers athletics club in Tooting Bec, as running is a strong passion of mine. Unfortunately, my studies drew me away from my sporting life however I’m still a firm believer that good health allows for a better working life.
• Engineering’s a passion I’ve had from young and is my future career. Sustainable methods to increase real output of the economy are still unfound. Extraction of natural, non-renewable resources and combinations of allocation for use in different industries is a debateable topic. Tackling world pollution, rising population, a scarce allocation of resources i.e. the economic problem still exists. Most engineering industries whether locomotive, automotive, aerodynamic, chemical, civil or mechanical require innovation and incorporate most if not all of these problems.
• Teaching is also something I see myself getting into as a profession. This is something that has grown exponentially since I started my A-Levels. I tutored during my second year of A-Levels, in maths and further maths. It was a little business set up by me and some friends locally and now we are looking at expansion through the borough. We aim to give young academic students the chance to do something positive for themselves while impacting other young people. This builds confidence in both parties. Therefore, becoming a teacher was a wise choice as I could learn the ins and outs of the trade.
