University engineering student giving Mathematics lessons to high school students in Edinburgh.

Methodology

I am currently in my first year at The University of Edinburgh studying (BEng) Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Management. Having achieved 12 'A' grades for GCSE Ordinary Level and 3 'A' grades ( Mathematics, Physics and Accounting) for Advanced Level I believe I am a key individual into helping any individual achieve their required grades at both GCSE and Advanced Level in Mathematics. Being young gives me a benefit into seeking the best out of my tutees. Having been in the game not so long ago, I have a profound belief that I know exactly what the exam boards are looking for and can tailor every student's aptitudes to their Mathematical needs.

Experience

I worked as an Integrated Science and Mathematics tutor at a Zimbabwean rural-based school for three months. During my tenure as a tutor, I gained transferable skills such as communication in a hierarchical system, organisational skills and time management capabilities. Furthermore, I also developed an interest in pursuing further studies in a science related field which culminated in my choosing to study Electrical Engineering with Management. All of these trait developments were a direct result of my day-to-day interaction with at least 150 students in the classroom environment.
At the end of the term, the cohort of students that I taught managed to deliver a pass rate of 67% with 40% achieving an 'A' grade or better.
