About me

Hi I'm Stephen and I'm currently studying Computer Science at the University of Birmingham. I'm loving the course currently, especially the Artificial Intelligence and Logic modules. I would love to use my knowledge built over the past few years from GCSEs and A levels to help out others who are currently in that situation.

Hi I'm Stephen and I'm currently studying Computer Science at the University of Birmingham. I'm loving the course currently, especially the Artificial Intelligence and Logic modules. I would love to use my knowledge built over the past few years from GCSEs and A levels to help out others who are currently in that situation. I've got a passion for teaching others and I enjoy seeing them learn and develop their skills. The A levels I took were Maths, Computing and Physics, all three of which I would be happy to help out with at any difficulty. Many skills cross over between these subjects, allowing me to have a more developed understanding of the concepts within them. Having two maths teachers for parents also has helped me gain important experience in the subject and teaching in general.

About my sessions

I aim to provide flexible lessons that would focus on developing skills and knowledge requested by the parent/student. I would listen carefully to feedback and tailor lessons particularly for each individual. I believe having a more relaxed, free, learning environment will benefit the student and help us pinpoint particular areas that need working on. Whilst in some situations a structured approach might be appropriate, I don’t think it works for a tutoring system. Me going through content to...

I aim to provide flexible lessons that would focus on developing skills and knowledge requested by the parent/student. I would listen carefully to feedback and tailor lessons particularly for each individual. I believe having a more relaxed, free, learning environment will benefit the student and help us pinpoint particular areas that need working on. Whilst in some situations a structured approach might be appropriate, I don’t think it works for a tutoring system. Me going through content too slow or too fast could cause the student to become bored or confused, so it's best we go at the students pace. I experimented with many revision techniques in preparation for my exams, and whilst I'd be happy to share what works best for me, I am more interested in finding out what works best for the student and then constructing lessons around this. If possible I would also be interested in making questions that link with something the student is interested in, perhaps a film or hobby. To sum up, I want to concentrate on making my students enjoy their lessons, and teach them how to work smarter, not harder.
