Project Engineer offering tuition in maths at high school level and further maths.

Methodology

My preferred teaching method is lecturing. I will prepare material that I will distribute with the audience. Then as I am systematically explaining through, the student(s) can follow and make notes. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions through the lecture. After every explanation, I will go through some examples. Once the session is completed, Homework is given which is design to consolidate or built up your understanding and your skill to apply the maths in different circumstances. But first of all the first lesson which is free would be used to assess your knowledge and the best method to get you to the required level.

Experience

I am a Project Engineer working in the marine industry. I have a master in Civil Engineering from Portsmouth University. Before jumping in the construction industry, I was a maths teacher for year 7,8 and 9 for approximately 7 years.

Edwin's CV

Education and Qualifications
MEng (Master) in Civil Engineering (September 2014-June 2018)

By undertaking this course, I acquired the knowledge to solve complex civil engineering problems by using mathematical and engineering analysis techniques. I also developed the skill of writing reports and to communicate effectively my solution to professional and non-professional audience. Through a unit called ‘integrated design’, I had the opportunity to implement my civil engineering knowledge to submit a detailed design of an academic building for the University of Portsmouth. I was responsible for the foundation part and my colleagues took onboard other aspects of the building. Through this group project, I developed skills such as working effectively as an individual and as a part of a team to achieve goals.

Work Experience
Project Engineer at Intermarine limited. (November/ ongoing)
I have been appointed as Project Engineer at Intermarine LTD. The company activities are to design and install marinas.
My main role is to do the technical drawing using AutoCAD, the structural calculation, buoyancy calculation, writing the method of statement, design risk assessment and occasionally supervising the installation process on site. I have conducted several projects through the UK where I had the opportunity to learn about catenary system and having a marina held by pivoting radius arm to adjust with the flood level.

Blaze constructions (September/October 2018)
I had the opportunity to temporarily work as a Site Manager cover for Blaze construction. Blaze construction is a sub-contractor specialized in groundwork. On my time for the company, I was posted at Popley Field, Basingstoke. The client was David Wilson home.
I had the opportunity to be involved in several aspects of the project. I was responsible for the labour time keeping, foundation record, supervising the amount of bricks and blocks worked daily, overlook on health and safety compliances on site, requesting the appropriate permit to dig prior any excavation.
I was responsible for estimating the amount of materials needed from the drawings prior commencement of work for ordering. Upon the arrival of material on site I was responsible to direct the delivery on the appropriate place. Also, I had to check the amount received against the amount ordered.
I was analysing the drawings and making sure that the gangs were doing the work as specified,
I was also responsible to make sure that any design changes from the client were updated in the site office and that the gang foreman was aware of the changes.
Also,I was responsible to ensure that the machinery plants are fit for operation, that plants certificates are up to date. Also, the lifting gear; chuckles, drop chain, and chains are inspected weekly for any sign of damage. Report any machinery plants broken down and to arrange the fitter to fix it.
Also, I was responsible to make sure that task is completed on time for CML inspections.
Tesco 2013-2018
Tesco was a part time employment which fitted well around my studies. I was a cashier/shelf replenisher, I acquired skills such as managing my working load and managing my time. Also, I develop an eye for perfection and for details as the company expect the products to be well displayed and rotated by date.
Codestorm PLC (UK). 2007-2013)
Codestorm PLC is a company dealing with storage, packaging, e-commerce, website design and mailing. There are several clients involved and I had the opportunity to work in different sectors, like the World Wide Fund (WWF) and Nintendo services. I am familiar with mailing procedures and I did some data processing while working for the company, I developed an eye for details and perfection as it was crucial for the company reputation. The company was dealing with customer’s data therefore no room for mistake. During the Wii fit launch of Nintendo in 2008, I was designated to supervise a team and to dispatch the advertisement materials throughout the UK under restricted time. I also contributed ideas to minimize errors of dispatching wrong items to customers.
Mauritius College (Mauritius) 1999-2006
I was a Maths and Art teacher, teaching up to GCSE level. My role was to implement the GCSE curriculum and to prepare the students for their exams. During those years of teaching, I developed communication skills, dealing with students of different intellect ability and creating different tactics to deliver the tuition. I was also responsible to liaise with parents to update their child education development.

Hobbies and Interests
