Trusted teacher: Maths is a brilliant subject with many real-life applications, so I aim to teach students one-on-one in order to prepare them not only for exams, but also to showcase the applications of Mathematics across all facets of life. Throughout my Mathematics degree at University, I have had the opportunity to teach classes within Maths Education courses and volunteering as part of the University's Outreach team, meaning I can use these experiences to ensure the tutoring is an engaging experience, as I believe it is important for students to enjoy learning Maths and see its uses in the world in order to understand it best. I also have an Enhanced DBS certification as a result of these experiences. Studying Mathematics and Music at the University of Edinburgh has been an enjoyable and social experience, and through both the courses I have taken within Statistics, Pure and Applied Maths, along with extra-curricular commitments such as presenting an exhibit at the Edinburgh Science Festival, I have experience in how to communicate efficiently and be organised when planning and conducting a lesson. I also am adept at time management and being adaptable through the range of other extra-curricular activities I have partaken in, in particular Music, which will allow me to conduct lessons in a friendly and fun manner. My outside interests include performing the Piano up to Undergraduate standard, Singing in various choirs and acapella groups in the city as well as a range of different sports ranging from Hockey to Korfball.
Becoming a confident musician is a skill that requires discipline, dedication and hard work. However I strongly believe that whether you wish to progress your skills on an instrument to a professional level, simply get the most out of playing In a band with friends or jamming along to your favourite playlists, the art of learning an instrument is an incredibly rewarding skill. In our lessons we will focus on building a solid foundation across the basics of playing the Drum Kit. We will discover the rich and diverse history of the instrument and move through the jazz, funk, rock and pop era's of music. While I am happy to tailor all of these lessons to the student's needs, I do believe having a basic knowledge of where the instrument and it's vocabulary came from is essential and will have a positive impact on the students playing. Listening is important! We will work through a number of landmark recordings that carve the path of the Drum Kit's evolution and continue the listening process all the way to your favourite songs and how the drums affect that music and the rest of the band! I am also happy to work through ABRSM, Trinity Guildhall and/or Rockschool exam grades. Music is all about communication, and being able to fluently communicate ideas on any instrument requires time and practice. However, like with your very first English lessons in school, over time you can develop the skill of communication to a point where you can exchange many different ideas and create interesting conversations (this time between musical instruments rather than your friends in the pub!). Although I understand music is a not a career for everyone, I strongly believe that learning how to play any instrument properly with discipline and good practice will enhance your life is more ways than anyone who doesn't play music will understand.

I have 10 years unbroken experience teaching Maths and social sciences to high school students. Since greater proportion of the students population at the colleges are struggling in their performance in maths, I am passionate about teaching maths only for now so as to help as much maths students as possible. I make my first tutorial class free so as to develop rapport with a prospective maths student and to enable me identify the areas they need improvement in their performance. The first half of my tuition starts with the fundamental principles of mathematics, showing the students various clues and hints to use in answering maths questions. Special reference is made to acceptable standard marking scheme so the student can understand each topic better and develop more affection for solving mathematical problems. At the second half of my teaching, several examples are worked together with the student, ensuring that the student is fully engaged in the exercises, assimilating the concepts and contributing meaningfully. At the end of the second half of the tutorial, a lot of exercises are given to students as take-home assignments. The submitted assignments are reviewed, scored before the next appointment and corrections made one-to-one with the student next tutorial session. The topics covered are not limited to the core concentration like algebra, trigonometry, calculus, statistics to mention a few, they extend to elementary maths. If the gap in understanding a topic is much, elementary maths is revised with the student prior to teaching any of the core maths topics.
Welcome to the GCSE Mathematics and Science class, where students embark on an exciting journey through the fundamental principles of mathematics and the captivating realms of science. This course is designed to equip students with the essential knowledge and skills required to excel in their GCSE examinations while fostering a deep appreciation for the wonders of mathematics and science in the world around us. In the Mathematics component of this class, students will delve into the core concepts of algebra, geometry, statistics, and more. Through engaging lessons and interactive problem-solving activities, students will develop their mathematical fluency, problem-solving abilities, and critical thinking skills.

Emphasis will be placed on applying mathematical techniques to real-world scenarios, ensuring students understand the practical applications of mathematical concepts. In the Science component, students will explore the three core disciplines: Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. Through hands-on experiments, demonstrations, and multimedia resources, students will investigate key scientific theories, principles, and phenomena. From the intricate workings of cells to the laws governing motion and energy, students will gain a comprehensive understanding of the natural world and the scientific processes underlying it. Topics covered include genetics, atomic structure, forces, energy, and the environment, among others. Students will also develop their scientific inquiry skills, learning how to design experiments, analyze data, and draw evidence-based conclusions. Throughout the course, students will be encouraged to actively participate in class discussions, collaborate with their peers, and seek support when needed. Regular assessments, quizzes, and homework assignments will provide students with opportunities to consolidate their learning and track their progress. Additionally, individualized support and enrichment activities will be available to ensure that each student has the opportunity to reach their full potential. By the end of this class, students will not only be well-prepared for their GCSE examinations but will also have developed a lifelong passion for mathematics and science, empowering them to navigate and contribute to an increasingly complex and dynamic world.
