For Maths and Physics, I have found that the two most important things to consider when learning are ensuring full comprehension, and practice.
Since I'm tutoring alongside school teachers, I find the best approach is for the student to come to me with problems they are struggling with, so we can target and strengthen specific weaknesses and improve effectively.
Especially with mathematics, sometimes all it takes to make something "click" is to try a different approach, analogy or example of the topic in question. After this happens, practice is vital to retain the information and to ensure progress isn't lost.
I am an enthusiastic second year Physics student at the University of Birmingham with a passion for the subject and for helping others to learn. I obtained an A* in A level Maths and As in Physics and Chemistry, as well as a high 2:1 in my first year of university. Since my school days, I have found showing others how to tackle problems enjoyable and rewarding.
6 A* grades including mathematics, physics and chemistry
3 A grades and one B grade
A* in mathematics and As in both physics and chemistry
Currently in second year of studying Physics at University of Birmingham
