About me

Hello, I'm Shivam, a student of the Mathematics with a Modern Languages course at the University of Manchester.

I remember how difficult A Levels can feel, and can still sympathise with the challenges that any A Level student is faced with.

Hello, I'm Shivam, a student of the Mathematics with a Modern Languages course at the University of Manchester.

I remember how difficult A Levels can feel, and can still sympathise with the challenges that any A Level student is faced with. Having tutored GCSE students and worked as a Teacher's Assistant for Mathematics and Spanish whilst doing my A Levels, I have a good amount of experience. Not only with tutoring students in these subjects, but also with helping reinforce the learning done in lessons.

Studying the course I do, I have the advantage of being able to approach issues from both an analytical, objective, mathematical perspective and also from the more open point of view of a humanities student. This means that often I may see a way to deal with a challenging question in one subject using skills learned in another. I find that this has helped me become a better thinker on the whole. Using this idea, I plan on improving the way my students think in such a way that prepares them not only for the classroom but also for the years ahead at University or in an Apprenticeship.

About my sessions

I'm a strong believer in building on a strong base, and find that this is the best way to prepare any student. I plan on using my first session to get an idea of what the general weaknesses are for any given tutee, and then finding what the root issues are with the topics they need help with. I.e. in Mathematics many students may struggle with rates of change. Instead of tackling the problem on its own, I would check the student’s understanding of the concepts behind integration and test...

I'm a strong believer in building on a strong base, and find that this is the best way to prepare any student. I plan on using my first session to get an idea of what the general weaknesses are for any given tutee, and then finding what the root issues are with the topics they need help with. I.e. in Mathematics many students may struggle with rates of change. Instead of tackling the problem on its own, I would check the student’s understanding of the concepts behind integration and test their skills in algebra. For Spanish, I may have someone ask me about a translation. In this case, I would try to find out if the main issues for said tutee is their knowledge of grammar, or of vocabulary, so that I can then develop these weakness such that they can then translate the text on their own. Alongside using exam questions, I also find it important to see how students are progressing with their understanding of the concepts behind what they've learned. This could mean I ask a further mathematics student, for example, to go through the process of finding the argument of a complex number. But I also think that it's important to track how interested the student is in the subject. So I also plan on asking about other material about their subject that they may have looked at. I find that any student with a genuine interest in their subject is more likely to do the work required, this is how I myself became motivated to work even harder for my A Levels.

He's very good at explaining advanced concepts in a simple way to where you can understand it.
