Undergraduate student studying Astrophysics - Maths and possibly computer science lesson in Brighton and Hove

Methodology

Normally my first lesson/ or meeting will be discussing the level of the students' knowledge on the specific subject and which area needs work on. Then I will be able to prepare fully for the future lessons with practice papers and worksheets. I will always be communicating with their parents after lessons or once a week to show the progress of the students.

Experience

I have studied computer science, maths and physics for a-level.
I have several experiences with private tutoring (normally taught up to KS3 level - willing to take GCSE)
I have taught students preparing for their entrance exams (maths) and majority of them have achieved very well.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £12/h

Details

I will only be available during July -August.
I can teach up to 5 days a week.
Maximum tutoring time will be 2 hours.

Ella's CV

This was my CV for uni application:
I have always been intrigued by the fundamental questions about the mysterious realms of our universe. My ambition to study Astrophysics has solidified since I embarked upon my A-level studies, with the combination of Physics, Maths and Computer Science, with the relatively young technology of coding arguably becoming one of the most prominent skills for all future generations. From the study of forces to a statistical enquiry to interfacing of data, these courses have cemented my desire to study Astrophysics and Cosmology at a university.
My dedication to Astrophysics has lead me to pursue extra reading and research and has in part been stimulated by the idea of partially unknown and undiscovered universes - a topic that has become one of significant investigation by physicists today. Reading 'Parallel Worlds' by theoretical physicist, Michio Kaku and 'The 4% Universe' by Richard Panek, introduced me to the basics of Astronomy: parallel worlds are central to one's interpretation of quantum mechanics; inflated versions of the astronomical theory imply that there are infinite 'bubbles' of branching universes. Cosmologists have even suggested that there could be parallel universes a millimetre away along with some higher dimension which does not exist in our dimension or cannot be seen by humans. All of this research has encouraged me to contribute to the blog 'Galaxy Zoo' where I have opened discussions on the properties of galaxies and the characteristics of stars and milky ways to increase my knowledge of this highly interesting field of study. I am very keen to further and consolidate my understanding of these various fields of enquiry at higher education level.
During work experience in Teradata, I familiarised myself with the role of a data scientist and analyst. I successfully provided several reports about the search errors on Google Chrome and an efficient report on the company Astrazeneca which Teradata was currently interacting with towards a significant project which required a technical understanding of the business context and applying different mechanisms to approach encrypted data. I believe that such analytical skills and communication with experts in the field will be helpful in preparing me for a course in Astrophysics.

Throughout school, I have found ways to channel my enthusiasm and I have always been interested in the practical applications of computer science, such as the fundamentals of a database, using SQL and a systematic approach to problem-solving. My curriculum understanding of Python inspired me to teach myself C and Unity over the summer break which enhanced my skills towards the Non-Exam Assessment project. I was particularly motivated by the under-representation of women in the field of astrophysics, as low as 20% in some developed countries and the challenging nature of the Physics course at A Level helped to develop my determination and resilience to the point that I took part in the 'Physics Olympiad Challenge' in Year 12. I found the experience to be rewarding and uplifting, as it allowed me to aim high and develop my problem-solving skills, using algebraic calculations and interpreting questions into equations.
I am also an active member of my school community, varying from being a house captain, having a leading role in the dance community and in my previous school I was deputy head of PR. This was a crucial role which involved creating house magazines and surveying and gathering information around the house. With such diverse abilities and a real desire to represent women in the field of astrophysics, I am confident that university will provide the perfect training ground in which to hone my talent and hopes for the future.
