About me

I have completed two years studying Mathematics at the University of Bath. I think maths is a lot of fun and often makes a lot more sense than people might think! I’ve always enjoyed studying maths and I think a good understanding of the reasoning and logic behind methods and solutions is the key to gaining a better grasp of the problem, as topics are often connected and knowing this will make it all seem much easier.

I have completed two years studying Mathematics at the University of Bath. I think maths is a lot of fun and often makes a lot more sense than people might think! I’ve always enjoyed studying maths and I think a good understanding of the reasoning and logic behind methods and solutions is the key to gaining a better grasp of the problem, as topics are often connected and knowing this will make it all seem much easier. I found exams to be quite a stressful experience at school so I have plenty of experience in handling the workload and ensuring revision is effective and efficient. I also had a hard time remembering things so I have a lot of little tips and tricks to make life easier when it comes to remembering the subject content!

At university I am a part of the yoga, dance and Raise and Give societies, and I am also a lead peer mentor in charge of helping first year students to settle in and cope with the change of environment and workload during their first year at university.

About my sessions

In my opinion, the best way to learn is through practise and understanding. The thing that helped me most when studying was learning the background and reasoning for the methods we were applying. This background knowledge helps to work out what methods need to be applied to which situations, and also makes the topics easier to remember once you have grasped them. I will help students to understand the main ideas behind any problems that they face before moving on to question specific help, wh...

In my opinion, the best way to learn is through practise and understanding. The thing that helped me most when studying was learning the background and reasoning for the methods we were applying. This background knowledge helps to work out what methods need to be applied to which situations, and also makes the topics easier to remember once you have grasped them. I will help students to understand the main ideas behind any problems that they face before moving on to question specific help, which should then allow them to transfer the knowledge to other aspects of the subject.

The lesson structure will follow this idea, in that I will try to explain any queries you have, give an overview of the topic, and then run through a few example questions to show how this links to the type of questions being asked. I will usually go through one example then ask you to go through one with help from me if its needed.

While this is what I've found works best, I know that everyone learns differently so I am happy to change how we use the sessions to best suit your learning style and the topics we're covering.
