From my previous tutoring experience, I know that every student has their own specific learning style and its imperative to understand what theirs is. I will then adapt my teaching methods to suit them so that my teaching is most effective. I always aim to help my students understand a mathematical question by breaking it up into a more simple process, this is essential as it allows my students to think logically and not become overwhelmed by a question.
I'm currently studying bioveterinary science at the university of Liverpool and over the past 4 years I have been giving maths lessons to those studying for their GCSE's. Of those I have taught, all have achieved or exceeded the grade they were hoping for.
Having achieved pleasing results in my GCSEs, receiving an A grade in 10 of my subjects including maths, English literature and language as well as in each science, I was able to study biology, chemistry and maths at A-level, where I received 3 B grades.
I am keen on pursuing a career in the welfare of animals; therefore, I am now beginning my second year at the University of Liverpool studying bioveterinary science giving me the option to go on to do many things that involve working with and helping animals.
Skills and Achievements
• Sports leadership award
• Dave Knapp award
• House captain
• Hard working
2016 Onside Coaching
As part of completing a sports leadership course I spent a week working with children of ages 4-10 where we organised and lead sporting games and activities. In this time, I gained experience not only working with, but teaching and looking after young children. Also working with other volunteers as well as the actual instructors was a really good experience as it gave me confidence working in a group.
2017 Cox’s dental practice
During my time preparing for my GCSE’s, I was considering a career in dentistry. Therefore, I spent a week at my local dental practice, observing the dentists, dental hygienists and nurses as they performed dental work. I shadowed them as they completed checkups, teeth extractions, x-rays, fillings, root canal treatments etc, on their patients. From this I was able to experience the life of those in this type of career, I found it a valuable experience, seeing how a practice is run and getting to see all the different types of work dentists have to carry out.
I have tutored several students studying for their GCSE maths exams over the past 4 years, where many have exceeded the grades they wanted. For this I had to prepare sessions and decide on which way was best to convey the subject matter to that individual student. I have found tutoring a very rewarding experience and enjoy seeing my tutees progress and succeed with any and all small improvements. This has been more than just a job to me, I have a great deal of passion when it comes to helping others to achieve their potential and love seeing students enjoy maths and no longer be intimidated by it. I try to make all my sessions fun so I'm able to create a comfortable environment for my student so they aren't afraid to tell me when they don't understand something and so they aren't scared to make mistakes so they are able to attempt questions as best as they can. Last year I did lots of tutoring online and found it very effective as I was able to give successful and flexible lessons to best suit my student and I. From my experience I've become very confident with my teaching and look forward to helping future students.
About me- hobbies and trips
From a young age I have been dedicated to my ballet, from which I’ve completed all grades up to 7, recently finishing due to me leaving for university. I love the dance of ballet, the difficulty of it and the skill of my teachers who I have been grateful to have been taught by. I have been committed to ballet, dedicated to going, even throughout my A-level exams, it’s been a great way to de-stress and a place where I can have fun. I hope to continue it as I settle into university. Over the last 3 years of my studies at my high school, I led a cheerleading after school club, where two of my friends and I ran 3 separate groups of girls who enjoyed learning a cheer dance routine and performed it at our school dance production. This has given me great confidence and leadership skills, I enjoyed making relationships with the team and found that my role as a coach fell into a mentoring role, where I experienced supporting the students in their school lives.
In the summer of 2019, I flew to India with school mates, with world challenge, where for a month I spent time participating in community work to benefit the local people of Manali, undertook a 14 day trek through the Himalayas and travelled around the beautiful places of North India, immersing myself in their many cultures, getting the amazing opportunity to visit places such as the Taj Mahal and the abandoned palace of Fatehpur Sikri. This truly was a once in a lifetime experience, it was incredibly difficult preparing for such a trip as well as actually completing it. The fund-raising going into this required lots of organisation and the fitness preparation was also strenuous. It was a very rewarding experience overall and incredibly challenging. It only inspires me to do more of such trips in the future.
