Third Year Aerospace Engineering Student at the University of Sheffield offering Maths support to anyone below University Level

Methodology

I am willing to give lessons to people of all levels, and will adapt my approach accordingly. As each person learns differently, I believe the best way to achieve results is to cater to different learning styles. As an auditory learner, I am aware that what works for me certainly doesn't work for everyone! In general, I believe the best way to approach Maths is just to do it, and keep practising it until it makes sense. This is the way that I have learned even the hardest concepts throughout my academic career.

Background

Through high school, I gave lessons in Maths and French to younger students who struggled, running regular problem classes that focused on the specific issues brought to me by students. Now that I am in my final years at University, I am able to offer much more extensive support in Maths, having built upon the concepts I studied throughout GCSE and A Level lessons. I am passionate about Maths, and its real world applications, and would love to help give extra support to anyone seeking it.

Liv's CV


Education (Chronological)
September 2010-July 2017
A Levels: A* Mathematics, A Chemistry, C Physics, A French (AS Level)
GCSEs: 10A*s, 1A (English and Maths A*A*)

Sheffield University, MEng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering, September 2017-July 2022
(Expected First Class Honours)
I am currently on the Avionics stream of Aerospace- involving Systems Engineering and Control. In my second year I achieved a score of 69% including Introduction to Systems Engineering Software Design (80%) and Mathematics- Electrical (64%).

Experience and Projects
French Tuition, 2015-2016
Throughout my time as a French Prefect at my school, I supported two students who struggled with French, by running a closed group study session over lunch periods throughout the year. Each session, the students would bring any work they had struggled with, perhaps a grammar exercise or a particular topic. We would work through each problem with whiteboards and I would prepare exercises to develop their overall confidence in both written and spoken French.

Maths Tuition, 2016-17
Once I reached college, I became the Maths and Engineering prefect for my school. This included running a Maths drop-in session, this time on a much larger scale, on a Friday lunchtime. As this was open from Years 7-13, each student would be seen individually when they encountered problems with their work. If more than one student had the same problem, they would be grouped together and they would complete problem-solving exercise prepared by the prefects with support from the teachers. This was a challenging environment as it required good understanding of all concepts covered over the years, and the ability to cater to each students’ needs.

Academic Representative for Aerospace Engineering, July 2019-Present
I enjoy being an active member of the student community at the University of Sheffield. This includes meeting regularly with teaching staff and faculty members to discuss any problems that my cohort of students encounter with the degree.

Project SunSat, October 2019-Present
Currently alongside my University degree, I am the thermal engineer of a team developing a High Altitude Balloon, that will hopefully reach near-space and test satellite components in conditions that are as close to space as is possible on Earth. This project requires independent research, time management and self-discipline to ensure I meet the deadlines that are set by my team and myself.


Achievements and Interests
• Most Innovative Solution- Engineering Education Scheme Wales
• CREST Award- Gold Award
• Industrial Cadets Award- Silver Award
• Professional Behaviours Award- University of Sheffield Global Engineering Challenges
• Duke of Edinburgh- Silver Award


Skills
• Leadership-Over the years I have taken on many leadership roles, namely prefect roles (Year 11- French, Year 13- Engineering and Maths) throughout school, and I am currently an Academic Representative for my course. Each of these roles require presentational skills, as well as communication with staff members, including regular meetings. I have enjoyed being the first point of contact between lecturers and students this year, and hope to take on similar roles in the future.
• Organisation- As a prefect, I wrote and organised an assemblies during Maths week and Languages Week, and I ran several drop-in tutorials in Maths and French for younger students to attend with topics they found difficult.
• Problem-Solving- The national award that my team and I achieved in the Engineering Education Scheme Wales demonstrates the high level of analytical skills and ingenuity we each demonstrate when approaching a problem.
• Time Management- While sitting my AS Levels in May-June of 2016, I was also examined for a Diploma of Musical Theatre. The balance of my academic studies as well as the work required to achieve a high-quality mark for an additional examination tested my ability to manage demanding tasks simultaneously to the best of my ability.
• Computer Skills- I am confident in C programming, as well as intermediate in MATLAB and have a basic understanding of Python and C++. Additionally, throughout various projects at university I have gained experience in SolidWorks and Ansys Fluent.

Additional Information
• Languages: French (Intermediate, Good understanding of spoken and written French), Welsh (Basic/Intermediate, spoken and studied in childhood so still good understanding)
• References: Available on request.

Maths has been at the centre of what Liv does for some considerable time. She is unlikely to tell you herself, but she achieved 10 A* grades at GCSE and, having taken Physics, Maths and Chemistry at A level, is currently studying aerospace engineering.

She has won engineering awards along the way - these involved not only teamwork in collaborating towards an end result, but also leadership skills in pulling together the various strands of the projects, for them to be successfully submitted and the projects to be seen as meaningful and the results as significant.

She is likely to not only help with your work but also help you understand why working out this particular problem is important to your overall development.

She will understand if the answer to a particular question eludes you as she has taken time to work through some of the more complex questions she has had to answer both in school and now in university.

You will find Liv approachable, helpful and unlikely to swamp you in jargon, three-letter acronyms and other language likely to trip you up.

I hope you find Liv to be as good a tutor as she is an engineer.
