About me

I am studying Maths at the University of York and I love my subject because it is exciting to learn about new areas of mathematics and developing and building on the knowledge you have picked up over the years. Also, maths is logical and putting in the time and work, I believe anyone can understand and do maths.

During A levels, there was a lot of pressure to perform well in all my exams. Although it was hard to try and juggle everything, the pressure that came with exams motivated me m...

I am studying Maths at the University of York and I love my subject because it is exciting to learn about new areas of mathematics and developing and building on the knowledge you have picked up over the years. Also, maths is logical and putting in the time and work, I believe anyone can understand and do maths.

During A levels, there was a lot of pressure to perform well in all my exams. Although it was hard to try and juggle everything, the pressure that came with exams motivated me more to work harder and to do my best in order to achieve my goals. Whilst applying to university, it was a daunting experience writing a personal statement and choosing which universities to apply for. The support given by my school, as well as doing lots of research about lots of different universities, helped with the process of applying to university, as well as attending a few open days to really get the feel of what that university and the city it resides in is like.

I will help my students improve by working with them on different topics and areas of mathematics that they are struggling with and to help them gain an understanding of it so that they build on their confidence when dealing with this subject. People learn at different rates and so I will be patient with them but will also challenge them so they will be more confident when tackling harder problems.

About my sessions

In terms of doing well in mathematics, I believe the key is to have plenty of practice at different types of questions. This has worked for me when preparing for past exams and allowed me to be confident doing mathematics. So I will help my students improve by first seeing what level of understanding they have with a certain topic, teaching them and building on their knowledge, and guiding them through questions and exercises so that they gain an understanding and confidence, with them eventu...

In terms of doing well in mathematics, I believe the key is to have plenty of practice at different types of questions. This has worked for me when preparing for past exams and allowed me to be confident doing mathematics. So I will help my students improve by first seeing what level of understanding they have with a certain topic, teaching them and building on their knowledge, and guiding them through questions and exercises so that they gain an understanding and confidence, with them eventually tackling past paper questions.

I will prepare for my Online Lessons by having different types of questions ready for the student to attempt and to work on, varying the difficulty of the questions to slowly improve the student's mathematical skills. This will also help measure the student's progress, eventually with them being able to tackle past paper questions. To encourage learning, it is important to not throw the student into the deep end. Moving them out of their comfort zone is good, and necessary, but not too much to discourage students away from persevering with the topic and subject.
