KCL maths graduate | Finance Professional | 7 years of tutoring experience
On maths tuition: I've been passionate about maths since my early school days and, in college, I taught myself all the Further Maths modules in one year as my college didn't teach them. As part of my work as a trainee actuary at one of the UK's most reputable consultancy firms, I have to do a lot of exams, majority of which are mathematically rigorous and challenging. I also enjoy learning new things about maths everyday as part of my work which often involves breaking down complex actuarial/mathematical problems to easy manageable steps so that the non-technical recipients of my work can understand the final results easily. This helps sharpen my teaching skills too! Since my uni days until now, I've provided one-to-one maths tuition to secondary school, GCSE and A-level students. However, due to other commitments and time constraints, I'm now able to provide maths tuition to A-level students only. On Bangla tuition: Bangla is my mother tongue. I did my schooling in Bangladesh in a Bangla medium school (before moving to the UK and going to college and university) and so have a very strong grasp of the language. I've also been in good practice thanks to my dad's language services agency as part of which I often help out with a variety of translation projects from English to Bengali (and vice versa). I am available to provide Bengali tuition to students of any level.
I love maths and physics, but I love helping people understand them even more!
I am a theoretical astrophysicist currently PhD studies at LJMU. I have a passion for maths and physics, and find happiness in teaching these topics. When I teach, my strategy involves ensuring students understand basic concepts and techniques, and how to link them together to solve more complex problems. My teaching experience includes private one-to-one tutoring, tutoring for The Brilliant Club (a charity which aims to improve University participation in underprivileged schools) and undergraduate teaching at University of Liverpool.
Aerospace engineering student with 4 years exp tutoring Maths and All Sciences!
I am currently in my second year of study at Queen Mary University in London. I have been tutoring for just over 3 and a half years and have helped students achieve success in their respected courses. I take pride in my student's work which motivates me to work even harder to ensure that my students are 100% prepared to take their exams. I mainly teach physics and maths because these are subjects that I am passionate about and ones that I use every single day in my chosen degree. I believe my understanding in the topic has grown significantly over the past few years, especially in university where I have had to come up with creative ways to tackle problems which have helped me understand the core concepts of the subjects even better. In addition, I also really enjoy watching and taking part in various sporting activities. My favourite being football and my favourite team is Liverpool (I assure you I will still help you with your studies if you support another team!). aside from that, I have an interest in aircraft, motor vehicles and motorsport. To conclude I am here to help you succeed and will do my best to ensure that you are ready to achieve your full potential in your examinations.
