About the lesson
Hi, I am Zoe. I have just finished my 2nd year studying Chemical Engineering at the University of Aberdeen (averaging on a First) offering to teach GCSE/ Secondary/Primary level Maths.
I always find it really fulfilling when my teaching is effective, so I aimed to provide the best level of teaching by being flexible to the way my tutee learns. For example, if someone gains more understanding via diagrams, I will adapt to this and be able to explain through visual representations.
I am very flexible in July and August.
I have experience at tutoring at Kumon in Bramhall for 2 years focusing on Maths but also teaching English. Here I helped children get ahead of their school curriculum by securing a strong foundation to build on. I learned how to problem solve quickly and diversified my methods of teaching as I was exposed to a wide age range of children to teach all on different levels.
Alongside this experience, I do weekly science based workshops at local primary schools in Aberdeen with Robogals- a student-run organisation which aims to inspire young girls to take STEM (Science ,Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) subjects. An example of a workshop is "Balloon Rocket Challenge" where we investigate the effects of air resistance and friction.
I have worked closely alongside Zoe, developing workshops for TechFest Aberdeen, and witnessing first hand her patience and clarity in explaining ideas to a wide age range of children. Her passion for promoting STEM to children, particularly girls, through Robogals (of which she co-founded the Aberdeen chapter) is inspirational, and the professionalism with which I have seen her conduct the organisational and business aspects of the society is commendable.
Throughout our sixth form and university level education, Zoe has always been available and willing to help me with maths, and her aptitude for clarifying higher level concepts to myself speaks volumes for her ability to tutor GCSE and below maths. I have every confidence in Zoe as a tutor.
