I lead a class interactively by constructively communicating to students the outcome of the lesson, then outline and explain methods of solving problems. Answered questions and carry out many examples of problems. Approached students supportively and by having a calm and mature attitude towards them, listened to them with full attention so as to ensure they felt at ease in asking as many questions as they can should they not understand what is being communicated to them. Achieved an increase in their confidence as a result; pupils alerted me with ease if they have issues at a stage of problem solving. Consequently, they had improved their test scores.
I am a Yogini, Maths enthusiast, and Media Buyer from London. I have over 3 years (volunteering) teaching Maths (mostly) to KS1/2/3, GCSE and A-Level students, as well as some English literature - by introducing poetry to primary school students.

Skills and Quality
Attention to quality
I possess great methodological skills; demonstrating the pride I take in my work and pay serious attention to the quality of work I produce. I am committed, goal oriented and optimistic. Able to prioritise and organise tasks effectively. My punctuality and low absenteeism also puts emphasis on the importance I place on attention to quality.
Good communicator both vocally and in writing; able to demonstrate diplomacy regardless of the situation. Produce work effectively with self-reliance and independence on the same basis as working as a team, especially in problem solving. My current past-faced role within the digital marketing space has educated me of the importance of understanding and tolerance of others in a team is essential for effective negotiation to take place to achieve a desired goal or objective.
Proficiency in Latex, Outlook, Microsoft Word, Power Point, Power BI and Excel in addition to some experience and knowledge (mostly self-taught) in Mathematica, SPSS, Visio, DAX, VBA/Macros, SQL – basics, Tableau (viewing dashboards). I have experience in turning theory behind Mathematical Finance into numbers using MatLab (using Monte Carlo simulations in areas of pricing, measuring risk and testing for example).
Leadership and Integrity
Experienced in leadership, to an extent, and have the willingness to learn fast to pick up new systems of working quickly, easily and effectively. Aim to not to merely delegate work and just leaves people to do it so that 'I don't have to' and my job is 'done', but rather to demonstrate how to properly take responsibility by being accountable for my teams’ performance. Being persistent is another quality that makes me a good leader – sticking to a task no matter how complicated and not getting disheartened.

Outside of my work life, I like to keep up with current social affairs such as the latest fashion trends and technology as well as attending events, aimed for personal development and growth, which bring timeless knowledge & practical wisdom for today’s modern world through interactive presentations, meditation and yoga. I read, enjoy cooking plant-based dishes and take part in sports such as badminton and tennis. I am a committed environmentalist and try to raise awareness about factors such as global warming, climate change and sustainable/ethical/holistic living. The satisfaction I receive from my volunteering experience in helping young people to gain extra knowledge about the beauty of Maths is fantastic. I like traveling as it gives me a deeper, a more richer understanding and perspective of people from different societies and cultures and gives me the opportunities to listen to their unique stories, learn from them and even have stories to tell for myself. One day, I’d like to combine my passions for yoga, Maths and traveling to understand the world a little better by volunteering as a teacher – teaching yoga and Maths - in schools in LEDCs, while contributing positively in the lives of children who have no or very limited access to education and aid in giving them a happier and brighter future.
