With the new school year here it's time to find a tutor to help your son/daughter excel in their studies! My name is Eppie, I am a first-class graduate from the University of Manchester, where I studied up to a Master level in Chemistry.
A little about my background:
I studied an integrated BSc and MSc in chemistry at the University of Manchester. In my third year I was specially elected to study my senior year at an American University, North Carolina State University, wherein I took PhD level classes. I have a specialist interest in inorganic chemistry, and most of my journal published results concern a molecular approach to improving the storage density of modern devices.
My teaching experience:
At present I tutor three pupils in Mathematics, aged between 7-16. My clientele has ranged from foundation level GCSE students, to excelling SATS pupils to primary school learners. In addition to this, I have worked with children during multiple international volunteering projects in schools. My most recent project included 4 weeks educating primary school girls in a rural village in Uganda.
So, why should we choose you then Eppie?
I've met my fair share of chemistry teachers along my academic path, and you can rest assured that I am MUCH more of a people person than many of the other tutors you may find on the market. As a recognised 'Global Friend' by my university, I have a natural ability to build relationships with people. I'll use this unique skill to build a positive relationship with the student, and really get him/her excited about learning their subject. Whether their struggling to grasp the basic concepts, or are looking to get ahead to secure that top grade - you can be sure I have the skills and experience to support him/her.
My teaching style:
If you were to build a pyramid, you wouldn't be able to build a stable pyramid with blocks missing from the bottom. Let this pyramid represent your understanding of a subject. Students aren't capable of answering top level exam questions effectively unless they have a solid understanding of the fundamentals. I believe in taking time to analyse the students weaknesses, creating learning plans, doing many many practice questions and using homework assignments to make sure the student fully comprehends a sub-topic before moving on. And, when exam time comes around, I'd like to discuss with the student the revision techniques that they personally find most useful (flash cards, mini-exams etc) and use these in combination with many exam style questions to get them super confident!
