All science and Maths tutor from year 1 - University
I am a recent graduate with a 1st class masters degree in medical engineering. I have been tutoring for over 5 years now and I have always gotten the best out of my students. I can tutor from year 1 students to university students.
My Degree covers all the core engineering modules, in addition to the core science modules. It is considered as both an engineering and healthcare degree, which gives me an advantage as I have the knowledge to tutor or teach across a wide range of subjects.
I have studied modules such as Modern Mathematics for Engineering, Introduction to law, Design for manufacture, Clinical Problems and solutions in Biomedical Engineering (biology module), Material science (chemistry module), Management of design and Statics and Dynamics (physics and maths module) have given me a greater knowledge in these fields. Additionally, my knowledge was further enhanced through application, as well as various problem based projects that were assigned to my group throughout my bachelor’s degree. The problem based projects provided me with invaluable insight into practical approaches that can be adopted to solve complex problems and thrive under pressure.
My A-levels results were good, however I did not take them seriously enough, as I only relied on the teachers, which was a mistake. I did have a private tutor, but he was bad. I therefore try my hardest to make sure the students achieve their desired grades, to prevent what happened to me to happen to them. I took Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Physics at A-level. For my GCSE’s, I achieved 8 A*-B, including Maths, English language and literature, Triple Sciences and ICT.
I have worked as a tutor, both privately and for a center, for over 5 years now. This has enabled me to develop skills which makes me a step above the other tutors. My work experience and the skills I achieved with it are as follows:
Iftiin Teaching Centre, West Kensington, W14. (January 2015 – April 2017)
- Communication skills: Teaching numerous students at a time for several months while liaising with the students’ parents. Additionally, I was required to solve dilemmas involving troublesome students and parents. Furthermore, I regularly worked with colleagues to develop a teaching plan and structure for upcoming classes.
- Organisation skills: I was teaching while a student, but I still managed to obtain a first class honours in my degree and maintained a high standard of teaching. Additionally, I was required to keep up to date with marking and giving feedback regularly.
- Motivating students: While teaching for many months I encountered many students who were not motivated. As their teacher, I was required to assist them with this, which in turn allowed me to develop a great deal of first-hand experience with these matters.
- Patience: Regularly explaining concepts repeatedly to ensure students are comfortable with the information relayed, while having to manage students who misbehave or a have difficult time in class.
Fine Tutors, Euston, NW1. (December 2014 – May 2015)
- Responsibility: I was the first math and science tutor to be sent to the new branch and the first to be in charge of finances. Additionally, I was responsible for learning support assistants and volunteers; ensuring they developed relevant skills and are prepared to engage with students.
- Time management: I had to dedicate additional time to travel and keep up with salary payments of fellow employees.
- Bonding with students: As well as teaching, I was required to promote the establishment to parents and students which I managed to do successfully as I developed a good rapport with them. This further allowed me to network, including being approached by parents requesting private one-to-one tutoring.
- Commitment: Working with many students helping them to achieve and exceed their predicted grades.
In addition to tutoring, I was also working for an engineering company abroad and have picked up several key skills;
Electronic Construction Services (ECS), EL Katameya, Cairo. (June 2016 - September 2016)
- Adapting to changes: Changing from teaching students to working in a completely different environment - an engineering one. Furthermore, I developed new skills to prosper in not only the company, but the field of Engineering.
- Critical thinker and problem solving skills: There were many problems that was encountered during work. I had to come up with solutions from an engineering perspective to resolve these problems, which led to the time taking for repairs to decrease by 7% and sales increasing by almost 9%.
- Confidence: Within the first couple of months I was suggesting improvements to improve the company’s performance
