About me

Hi, my name is Niamh! I am a 3rd year Mechanical Engineering student at Durham University; currently a top 5 UK university. Studying engineering allows me to apply the mathematical knowledge I gained from A-levels and create solutions to real world life problems. I remember taking my GCSE’s and A-levels like they were yesterday, so I understand the pressures and expectations that are put upon students to achieve high grades. However, through a structured timetable and lots of hard work I was...

Hi, my name is Niamh! I am a 3rd year Mechanical Engineering student at Durham University; currently a top 5 UK university. Studying engineering allows me to apply the mathematical knowledge I gained from A-levels and create solutions to real world life problems. I remember taking my GCSE’s and A-levels like they were yesterday, so I understand the pressures and expectations that are put upon students to achieve high grades. However, through a structured timetable and lots of hard work I was able to achieve the grades I needed, including four A-levels with full marks in A-level maths. During my two years at college I volunteered at my old high school every week tutoring GCSE maths to help the students gain the best results they can. In my spare time I am an active member of the local gym and use this as my downtime from university work. I am also a member of several societies including Women in STEM, Consulting society and Engineering Without Borders UK.

About my sessions

My lessons will be tailored to the needs of the student, listening to what they struggle with most within the subject. I will focus on these specific topics by creating practice questions to expand their knowledge and more importantly their understanding.

My lessons will be tailored to the needs of the student, listening to what they struggle with most within the subject. I will focus on these specific topics by creating practice questions to expand their knowledge and more importantly their understanding. For me during maths at both GCSE and A-level I learnt it is important to fully understand the method and why it is being used rather than regurgitate it, this way ensures that when an unfamiliar, complex question appears the student will be fully prepared. I will also encourage the students to create mind-maps for each individual topic, summarising key equations or methods. By setting homework questions every week this will both test the understanding of the student as well as give a good indicator to me as to what subjects need more attention during our lessons. I will then go through the solutions in detail and ensure the student understands the methods used if they did not achieve the correct answer. I will measure progress by recording the trend of correct homework questions, and also do a weekly quiz to test the key topics we have learnt that week. My lessons aim to be as interactive as possible and at a level the student feels comfortable with.
