I recently graduated from King's College London with a very good second class honours degree in MSci Mathematics and my goal is to contribute to a movement that encourages pupils up to GCSE level to engage fearlessly with a subject that can be notoriously difficult and hope to cultivate an understanding of Mathematics in the world.
I describe myself, as patient and adaptable. Furthermore, it is one of my aims to expand students' knowledge of their curriculum by showing how to prove results they have learned.
For a year I took on the role of a tutor for the King's College Maths School part-time during my studies, where I supported students in tackling unfamiliar concepts such as proof. In particular, one student was helped to show that the product of an even number and an odd number is an even number. I did this by breaking down the steps. Eg, What is the definition of an even number?
Unrelated to Mathematics, I became involved with a paired reading scheme with Year 7 pupils where my patience and adaptability were demonstrated through guiding pupils with their comprehension skills and spelling.
In addition, I have planned and instructed lessons with Indigenous Japanese students to pupils in Primary schools, to broaden their awareness of an unfamiliar culture.
I will offer the first three lessons for free to all new students.
For Primary and Secondary pupils, the charge per hour including travel will be £10.
For GCSE pupils, the charge per hour including travel will be £15.
2012 – 2016 King’s College London, MSci Mathematics (2:1)
Conducted well-received five-minute presentations to my respective tutorial groups on a solution to an exercise in each of the modules Calculus II, Geometry of Surfaces and Fourier Analysis. Planned and gave a twenty-minute presentation on a dissertation topic to a cohort composed of lecturers and fellow students, which developed an ability to dissect complex knowledge into step by step procedures.
2006 – 2012 Hendon School, London
A levels: Mathematics (A*), Japanese (B), Chemistry (B)
AS level: Further Maths (A)
GCSEs: 11 grades (A*-C) including: Japanese (A*), Mathematics (A), English Literature (A), Double Science (A) and ICT (AIDA) (A)
2013-2014 Assisting Tutor, King’s College Maths School (Part-Time)
Motivated GCSE students to tackle unfamiliar proof-style questions by using known GCSE knowledge. Built successful relationships by exhibiting patience and empathy with less confident pupils. Entrusted with additional responsibility of marking and checking students’ work, which improved self-confidence. Improved communication skills by supporting other tutors and the instructor to ensure pupils’ focus is maintained throughout the structured tasks.
