About me

I'm Jordan Whittaker, and I'm studying Aerospace and Aeronautical Engineering, with side modules of German! I've always been passionate about aeroplanes, and since living near an airport I have had daily pleasure of watching them fly by. I've directed this life long love into my field of study so that I can take my positivity, and excitement into learning more, and helping others to learn more. Making Maths fun and understanding the theory behind questions are the reasons why...

I'm Jordan Whittaker, and I'm studying Aerospace and Aeronautical Engineering, with side modules of German! I've always been passionate about aeroplanes, and since living near an airport I have had daily pleasure of watching them fly by. I've directed this life long love into my field of study so that I can take my positivity, and excitement into learning more, and helping others to learn more. Making Maths fun and understanding the theory behind questions are the reasons why I believe I earned an A* at A level, and I hope to help my students make learning enjoyable too, so that they can apply what they have learned better.


I've also had life-on experience, which will help students to learn more since I can give real life problems to solve! I have had work experience at engineering giants, BAE Systems, helping with a wide variety of mathematical problems. I have also lived in Germany, Austria and Switzerland for 2 years, where I mastered the language I love: Deutsch! This will definitely help anyone looking to improve their German, since I spoke the language daily with natives for 2 years, rather than once a week at school from a 60 year old teacher, who went on holiday to Austria once.

About my sessions

Firstly, we can decide on the units students need help with, or if they want to cover the lot. I will prepare for and deeply cover any unit of Maths, explaining the theory so that students can apply principles learned into any scenario. I'm a strong believer in practice, and variation! So we'll solve questions at all levels using different learning strategies. It's vital to be able to use multiple techniques at the same time and we will go through exam questions, allowing students...

Firstly, we can decide on the units students need help with, or if they want to cover the lot. I will prepare for and deeply cover any unit of Maths, explaining the theory so that students can apply principles learned into any scenario. I'm a strong believer in practice, and variation! So we'll solve questions at all levels using different learning strategies. It's vital to be able to use multiple techniques at the same time and we will go through exam questions, allowing students to feel what kind of questions will come their way, and how to stay calm when something scary comes up, breaking down questions into individual components to go on to answer the question.


In German, I will assess students level of reading, writing, speaking and listening, and plan on next steps for improvement. We'll practice speaking in situations from a formal speech, to chatting in the shop, and writing, from formal letters to texting, and we'll listen and read different texts to widen understanding. We will look at exam questions, learn fun ways to remember words and learn to pick out the necessary important information.


I can help students achieve goals, by making plans of study, practice and rewarding themselves! We will measure progress through small practice tests of what we have covered, be it Maths questions, or aspects of the German so I can know if there's a need to review a topic.
