University student giving maths, science and medical school application lessons to pupils in South Wales.

Methodology

I have achieved 10A* at GCSE and 4A*s at A-level in Maths, Chemistry, Biology and Physics. I am currently undertaking a medical degree at the University of Cambridge, having just completed my first year.

In my lessons, I like to focus on areas the student is struggling with, rather than teaching them the whole syllabus. So, my first lesson will involve an overview of the course, and I will identify key areas the student is struggling on, and will explore each of these problems in the subsequent lessons. I would be keen to do online tuition as I am a student and thus cannot guarantee to be in one location for a long period of time.

Background

I have been giving private lessons for three years and I am currently tutoring two GCSE level students in chemistry. I have experience teaching all three sciences and maths at a GCSE level to students in the past. All my students have exceeded or met their target grades.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £20/h

Details

Am able to travel to Cardiff/South Wales, however will charge travel expenses.

Skills

I speak good French and German and am proficient with technology. I am efficient, loyal, and enthusiastic in everything I do.

Charity Work
I am a very keen supporter of many charities including Operation Christmas Child, The Alzheimer’s Society and The British Heart Foundation. I have taken part in Homeless sleep-outs, sponsored runs and organised cake sales for these charities and others. Earier this year, I raised £500 for charity by completing a ‘Jailbreak’.

Voluntary work
I volunteer at a Brownies group, which I did weekly for almost four years and have been returning during my University holidays.  I have also completed a year-long placement volunteering at the Day Unit of Severn Hospice, and worked in a charity shop for over a year.
