About me

Hi, I'm Zoe and I'm studying Geography at Durham University. I love Geography and can talk about it for hours, much to the annoyance of my friends and family. I want to be able to share my passion for the subject with others whilst aiding their understanding of the subject in the process.

Hi, I'm Zoe and I'm studying Geography at Durham University. I love Geography and can talk about it for hours, much to the annoyance of my friends and family. I want to be able to share my passion for the subject with others whilst aiding their understanding of the subject in the process. I, strangely, also love Maths and the way logical methods can be applied to arrive at an answer, something not normally possible in Geography. I didn't use to like Maths and it wasn't until my GCSE years when my opinion of the subject changed and I really started to enjoy the challenge of solving a problem to feel that sense of achievement at arrival to the correct answer. I want to help others find the same enjoyment in Maths I did and find that the use of a few real life examples, particularly involving food (think fractions as the slices of a pizza), really help to create an understanding of the basic concepts required at GCSE level.

About my sessions

My sessions will be based around the student, and therefore the topic approached in each one will be what they want to learn about, whether it be they're are struggling with the topic, they are learning about it in school or they just find it really interesting! Through communication with my tutee, I can structure a session around what they want or need to learn about assuring I have the knowledge to answer any of their questions. The sessions will begin with an introduction to the topic...

My sessions will be based around the student, and therefore the topic approached in each one will be what they want to learn about, whether it be they're are struggling with the topic, they are learning about it in school or they just find it really interesting! Through communication with my tutee, I can structure a session around what they want or need to learn about assuring I have the knowledge to answer any of their questions. The sessions will begin with an introduction to the topic and the basic methods associated with it, and will move on to look at example questions which we can work through together so the tutee can get a better understanding of applying the method and I can get a better understanding of what they may be struggling with. One thing that always stuck out to me during school was that not everyone shows progress in the same way, one person may find a test easier and another may show progress by verbally explaining the topic, therefore communication will play a key role in how I measure my students' progress.

Zoe has been such a great help to my son. He has gone from someone who lacked confidence in his ability in maths to someone who has come home from his GCSE exams buzzing that he actually understood what he was doing. Zoe has structured the sessions perfectly and has been accommodating with her availability. Thank you so much.
