Cambridge Graduate - Science and Maths Tutor for Five Years
I graduated in 2017 from the University of Cambridge after three years studying Natural Sciences and I am currently seeking work as a tutor to provide me with a challenging and rewarding workplace. I feel work in this area will further complement my 5 years of experience of working as a tutor and will aid my career goal of becoming a Chemistry teacher. Whilst at Cambridge I completed study in various areas of maths and science including: Biology of Cells, Pharmacology, Physiology of Organisms, Chemistry, Psychology and Maths.
My work in the past five years has included tuition in all three sciences, mathematics and further mathematics up to A level standard. I have worked with most of the exam boards, specialising in international exam boards. I have also worked closely on a project offering bespoke mentoring for students looking to apply to Oxbridge and the other top universities in England. This project offers advice and guidance with writing of personal statements, amendments to UCAS forms, assistance with the Cambridge SAQ and interview preparation.
I have also taught English classes of up to 40 children, aged 8-16 whilst working in Guangzhou in China. This experience aided me with my approach for teaching large classes and helped improve my lesson plans to make them more suitable for a younger audience.
I have received great feedback from my clients in the past and I feel it is important to develop a good working relationship with both students and parents, so all parties involved know exactly what is expected of each other. I see tuition as a very important aid to work at school and I strive to offer the best and most individual service possible to each of my students. I ensure I can offer this by keeping in regular contact with parents to ensure they know their child is being given all the help and support they need. I also encourage parents and students to come to me with any problems they have with my style of teaching and I set regular mini-assessments to ensure topics have been understood fully.
In my opinion, the most important part of being a good tutor is to get to know and understand your students' and their learning styles. With better understanding, comes more personal and useful tuition, something which many schools unfortunately fail to recognise or are unable to provide.
