I like to sign-off maths content from the textbook asap to ensure maximum time can be spent practicing all exam papers and putting learning into practice and then re-visiting areas which cause problems again before examinations. I provide students with a set of detailed, concise notes written by myself
I have studied at The Cedars Academy where I gained my 4 best A-level results in Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics (AAAB).
During and after studying I have worked for (firstly) River Island Clothing and (secondly) Starbucks at Welcome break services. Both jobs required a high standard of customer service.
There's a lot of negotiation potential with the pricing of my lessons, some lessons like Core 1 and Core 2 maths will be charged at basic rate 12 pounds per hour. Whereas, Core 3 and Core 4 will be charged at 15 pounds per hour at basic rate (you can save money by buying lessons in higher quantity).
I am very committed to achieving and learning more about various topics such as science, ancient history, nutrition and spirituality. This hunger for knowledge began shortly after I started sixth-form studies such as: biology, chemistry, physics and Mathematics at the Cedars Academy in Birstall. Science knowledge through the A-Level period has absolutely fascinated me, in A2 I realised that it’s highly likely a career in science will lead to my happiness. Having a history of close and dearly loved relatives pass away from terrible conditions such as lung cancer, pneumonia and heart problems I feel one day I’d be happy to have a place in preventing these ailments and improving the quality of life for those that are suffering. Through my medical work experience at the Glenfield general hospital I developed a deep interest in medicine including physiology and becoming a doctor. During the experience it was enlightening to see the whole process of care in the hospital from the waiting room to the prognosis/diagnosis stage to the patient leaving the hospital well informed by the healthcare professional about his/her condition. It really struck me how only certain characters can take on the role of a doctor, this was demonstrated through a series of 3 very upsetting cancer reports from a doctor for 3 different gentlemen. I seen that doctors must be able to accurately convey the important and sometimes extremely upsetting information and try not to attach themselves to their patients which takes a lot of character. My alternate interests lie deep in physics and the possibilities for the future. My strength lies in my mathematical ability which allows for me to excel in physics along with my extensive scientific potential. With space science becoming a huge industry and production of renewable energy becoming a large growing problem among the globe I also take interest in physics research as well as a medical profession. I feel through a master of physics degree and possibly through acquiring a PhD, I’ll open the door to the route towards my desired scientific career.
I am inspired by scientists and spiritualists as well as people that deviate from the ‘norm’. Not only do I love studying, I love nature and being outdoors. I attend sole fitness gymnasium in Glenfield 5+ times per week. I do weightlifting/bodybuilding as well as occasional flexibility/endurance training to maintain good health and wellbeing. I used to play rugby from the age of about 10 years old, I carried this hobby through high school and college where I also had the opportunity to play. I played for Leicester forest east RFC during my teenage years and through this I got asked to join a Leicestershire academy side hosted at vipers RFC (which I unfortunately had to cancel to allow time for my college studies). Other things I enjoy include reading, music, socialising with friends and family, travelling and recently I have begun to take an interest in playing instruments like the guitar. During my time of study, I used to mentor other students at college, offering help with any science or maths queries. I got the opportunity to mentor by joining my college’s group of senior individuals (a sort of school council to improve college life for students). Because mentoring required me to teach a whole area of a topic, I would sometimes have to briefly prepare a set of notes to aid the learning of others. Because teaching required well reinforced knowledge, it helped me in terms of remembering information for my own studying. I plan to take a gap year during the ‘school year’ following this in order to work, travel and spend some time to learn about how to stay healthy.
Around the age of sixteen, I started doing occasional work for Tom Brown’s: Jigsaw Events in and outside of Leicestershire. Myself, my father and brother still occasionally work for Tom’s business in events when he requires extra support when the work gets busier – this is usually in the months leading up to December. During this work experience I found myself having to converse with a wide range of different people from various backgrounds, in doing this I gained a lot of confidence and the ability to talk to anybody. I feel that verbal communication skills and good manners are crucial in the workplace, equally important to the degree of competence shown by staff.
Shortly after I turned seventeen, I travelled into town and I applied for various job vacancies in retail stores in Leicester town. I hastily accepted my first regular job that same day as a sales advisor at River Island Highcross. This job allowed me to build on my people/communication skills by using a headset and talking to colleague and customers. My main duties as a sales advisor were to serve customers not only on shop floor, but on the cash desk and sometimes on the phone. We would frequently encounter groups of people who previously stolen stock from the store and so I and my colleagues, had to stay viligent at all times. At the start this would test my patience but after around 2 months of working there I had learnt how to approach a customer thought to be stealing and tactfully secure the items by offering to take their items to the till or by positively commenting on their choice of clothing. A lot of the time the customers were rude and/or verbal abusive but after a few of these experiences I became placid and accepted it as part of retail. Sometimes when working at River Island we would be understaffed and we would have to help each other out by switching roles and doing extra shifts when necessary, for example when we were short in stock replenishment, I stepped in to provide extra cover and on busy event dates such as Boxing Day, Black Friday and student events. I left River Island around June 2016 to allow time to complete my 2nd year exams and in August 2017 I joined Welcome break, Starbucks at Leicester Forest East service station where I work currently as a barista.
I would consider my best quality to be my sheer resilience when it comes to things that are important such as my education, my health and improvement (both inside and outside the workplace). I am very open-minded such that I am always willing to hear someone’s take on a given matter as I am well aware that all people interpret and analyse situations differently and thus, each individual has the potential to offer a different approach. I am very persistent when I’m faced with a challenge and I often remain patient and level-headed in these situations. Furthermore, I am patient and I do not quit, even when something is strikingly difficult, I will adjust my methods and find my way. I have shown this quality when it comes to my studies, part of my time at A-level includes a large volume of difficult, stressful and long-winded work. However, at best, to me it has been fascinating in terms of the areas of study, not only that but helpful in terms of developing exceptional organisation skills which has served me well because I have developed into a reliable and stable individual.
