Second year Civil Engineering Student at Glasgow University Offering Maths or Physics help

Methodology

I teach Maths by laying out a structure of working to solve a problem, and teach how to identify a problem to then to use the newly learned structure and break down the complex question into easy-step solutions. It is a method I use in Engineering Maths at University and is a technique that arms anyone with the ability to solve a complex maths problem.

Experience

I am a 19 year old student from Edinburgh, studying Civil Engineering with Architecture at Glasgow University. I went to George Heriots School, achieving A's in Higher Physics and Higher Maths, and furthermore studying Advanced Higher Maths and Physics in 6th year.

Profile
I am 19 years old and currently studying Civil Engineering with Architecture at Glasgow University. Most of my recent leisure time has been spent playing basketball, recently as part of the Glasgow university 1s where we made it to the semi finals of the British universities league. I have also been part of the Scotland National Team (U-16) at the European Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria. Teamwork, skills development have been at the heart of my achievements and I am now also keen on developing these skills in the workplace. I was born in Cape Town, South Africa and have also lived in Spain, so I am used to multicultural settings and feel at ease with foreign visitors.
