I love Maths as it is a subject that has applications to almost anything you can think of, from the motion of a space vehicle to even predicting tomorrow’s weather, and I have studied it all the way up to degree level! I believe that every student, regardless of background should have the opportunity of reaching their potential.
I am extremely grateful for the education and learning opportunities that I have had in life, and I would love to help others maximise their learning opportunities as well. In my lessons, I will aim to make all my lessons engaging and simulating by emphasising the real life applications of the content taught. I have previously tutored students of all ages and abilities in my free time, seeing the vast majority of them improve their grades significantly. Furthermore, last year I taught Mathematics to local school teachers in India, helping develop their Maths ability as well as encouraging them to come up with more creative and engaging methods to teach their own students.
I am passionate, self-motivated and ambitious, and I strongly believe I have the required skillset to become a successful tutor. In my free time I enjoy playing and watching sports such as football, cricket and tennis. I also read and do puzzles such as Sudoku in my free time.
In some circumstances, learning exists with the pure intention of passing examinations. However, this can lead to students merely memorising methods and concepts that they need to learn for the exam, rather than actually gaining an in-depth understanding of the material being taught. I have experienced lessons which are purely based on rote learning and I know how demotivating and frustrating these lessons can be.
As a tutor I aim to change this and make more lessons more engaging and simulating for all, ensuring that the student understands fully the content that is being taught. I am a strong believer in the fact that progress is measured by understanding the content rather than just providing correct answers to questions. Therefore, I will aim to ask open ended questions and emphasise the fact that the method is as, if not more important than the correct answer. One-to-one tutoring is extremely important, as it allows the tutor to easier pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of students, so that they can teach accordingly to make the student improve quicker. When it comes to preparing and delivering lessons, I will tailor my teaching style to the individual tutee’s strengths and weaknesses, ensuring that every tutee can improve and get the most of my sessions.
I will look to also regularly challenge tutees by giving them harder questions, so that they have the best chance of achieving their potential.
