Hello, my name is Shiv Mehta and I have just finished my first year at the University of Birmingham studying Mathematics.

By studying Mathematics and Further Mathematics at A-Level both my ability and passion for the subject has increased. I achieved an A* in Maths and Further Maths at A-Level, an A* in GCSE Maths and an A in Additional Maths. Maths is definitely the most rewarding subject I have studied and the feeling of satisfaction from tackling a difficult question and getting the right answer is something that a lot of people who study Maths enjoy. I believe that the best way to learn Mathematics is to understand the material rather than learning questions as the student will be more able to apply their knowledge to a question. However, practising questions is also very important because it allows a student to become more familiar and confident with the style and how to answer them correctly.

If the student has any questions at the start of the session I will address these first and then go on to systematically cover the topics in the GCSE Maths syllabus. The interactive whiteboard will also be very useful and help me illustrate the method used to tackle a question. Once a student is confident with all the material in the syllabus I will go through a past paper with them in the session and then ask them to complete more past papers in their own time which I would go through in the next session.
