About me

I’m Rumen, a Third Year Maths student at the University of Cambridge. I am passionate about maths and helping others find enjoyment in it.

 

I am a student who does not stop working on a concept until I understand it 100% clearly. So I know the struggle of spending ages on something and not being completely satisfied.

I’m Rumen, a Third Year Maths student at the University of Cambridge. I am passionate about maths and helping others find enjoyment in it.

 

I am a student who does not stop working on a concept until I understand it 100% clearly. So I know the struggle of spending ages on something and not being completely satisfied. In my journey so far, I have bumped into every mathematical hurdle possible, and have managed to overcome it. This puts me in a unique position to help students obtain a clear understanding of whatever bit of maths they are currently working on.

 

I have significant experience mentoring maths, giving mock maths university interviews and delivering maths presentations to a sixth form audience. So I am experienced at presenting maths in a clear and approachable way. I have also, in the past, prepared maths resources intended for sixth form use, so have lots of practice preparing material meant for learning.

About my sessions

I always prepare and plan each lesson in advance – to make the most of the limited time we have available in the face-to-face lesson. I talk to students before each session to gain an idea of what they are looking for. In general, sessions will be tailored to students’ personal needs. Here is an example of how I cater to students’ needs:


HELP! I am really stuck on topic X.

I first start off the session by showing the student a question on this topic,...

I always prepare and plan each lesson in advance – to make the most of the limited time we have available in the face-to-face lesson. I talk to students before each session to gain an idea of what they are looking for. In general, sessions will be tailored to students’ personal needs. Here is an example of how I cater to students’ needs:


HELP! I am really stuck on topic X.

I first start off the session by showing the student a question on this topic, to see exactly how stuck they are. A lot of times students feel like they do not know anything because they are overwhelmed, when in fact they are not too bad. Once I have an idea of the student’s level in the topic, I teach the material in accordance with the required syllabus and then show some examples. The examples I show are themselves educational, e.g. they contain some reusable trick, instead of just being the most straightforward application of the theory. I then finish off by holding the student’s hand through an question, to show them they can do it too.
