About me

Hi, I'm Sam and I'm currently studying Computer Science at the University of Leeds! I love my subject because quite simply I love solving problems - there's no feeling like when you finally get your code to work and everything all falls into place! I've always had a passion for computers and maths, both of which go hand-in-hand and I enjoy putting into practice to produce solutions to problems to make that as simple & easy as possible.

At university I love getting out and being active, I take part in gymnastics & trampolining most weeks and also sit on the committee of CompSoc (the society for people studying computer science students) which shows my organisational skills and leadership capabilities. I've always enjoyed learning throughout my education to date and have a solid track record in exams which have led me to where I am today at university - and believe I'm well suited to passing this on and helping others to succeed too. I enjoy helping out my friends & coursemates with their work, helping them learn and seeing their understanding grow, and previously have spent a year tutoring children aged 4 - 15 with Kumon which to this day is the best job I've done! Nothing made me happier than seeing them grow and not just teaching them - but also acting as a mentor and I genuinely feel I had a great connection with the pupils!

About my sessions

I start by gaining an understanding of what students require from their online lessons so I can aptly prepare and provide them with everything they need for their learning ahead! This preparation will feed into the resources I prepare, such as Powerpoints or whiteboard tutorials, in order to tailor them to the student - with these changing as I learn about the student's strengths & weaknesses.

I start by gaining an understanding of what students require from their online lessons so I can aptly prepare and provide them with everything they need for their learning ahead! This preparation will feed into the resources I prepare, such as Powerpoints or whiteboard tutorials, in order to tailor them to the student - with these changing as I learn about the student's strengths & weaknesses. I will deliver my lessons in a fun & easy to follow manner in order to keep students engaged which is important to keeping them interested and from zoning out - with adaptations to my delivery coming over time to fit the lesson to the pupil as I get to know them more! Regular recaps will help me gauge a students learning with bi-weekly reviews and discussions with the parent about how the child is finding the lessons - with all feedback taken on board and used to improve the online lessons in future! It's so essential to make the learning fun and interesting to the student while also ensuring they are benefiting from the lessons with helpful and constructive feedback! I can't wait to get teaching and helping young people learn!
