What I study?

I am currently in my second year of a three year BSc Mathematics with Statistics degree at Bristol Uni. I am really enjoying the challenge of my degree and it has made me a much better mathematician already. I study maths because I've always succeeded at it in school, getting the top results and being in top sets. I did further maths at a level which furthered my enjoyment and passion for the subject.

What makes a good tutor?

I believe I am good at explaining concepts in maths as well as understanding the struggle of exams as a student. This balance is important when tutoring GCSE and A levels students because I can empathise with the stress and difficulty of exams, but also push students in order to prepare them for every kind of situation in an exam paper. I found exams overwhelming during school and came up with good strategies to cope with them. I know all students won't need the advice but I can share my experiences of exams to help them not only expand their knowledge but also with exam technique.

About my sessions

I will structure my tutorials based on the student and their needs; making sure I am covering the basic knowledge of the topic before challenging them with harder and more complex questions. I will help the tutees improve by providing them with tips and tricks for methods of answering questions as well as letting them know how to tackle harder questions.

I will help the tutees improve by providing them with tips and tricks for methods of answering questions as well as letting them know how to tackle harder questions.

I find the best way to test your knowledge in maths is to revise over the material then try questions, focusing on how to answer each type of question. In my experience, past papers are an excellent way to challenge your knowledge. I'll measure the progress of my tutees by supplying them with questions during tutorials and giving them a time frame to complete the question. They then will explain to me the answer and we will go over a perfect way of doing the question. This way they will test their knowledge and then build on it; it's a really good way to learn and remember how that question would be answered.
