I teach science and maths in a creative, simple and enjoyable way :D

My name is Katie and I graduated from the University of Nottingham with a first-class degree in Neuroscience, also coming the top of my year. I have now been tutoring for 2 years and I am loving it. Since school, I have always loved maths and science, which led me to choose maths, physics and chemistry alongside philosophy and ethics for A-Level. This, coupled with my interest in people and how they work, meant Neuroscience was the perfect degree for me. A tutor needs more than to be good at and enjoy the subjects they teach; I believe that the key to tutoring is being able to explain the content in a creative, simple and accessible way. I am very easy going and light-hearted, in an effort for students to really enjoy the sessions and to not see me like their teachers, but as someone who they can ask any question - however silly they think it is. From experience, I know that many students can put in the hours and know a lot of the content and yet not see this translate into their grade. In my sessions, I aim to cover the course content to identify weaknesses, address them and then quickly move onto exam-style questions, dealing with gaps in knowledge as they arise, so the student becomes used to the type of questions they could get well before any exam. I also believe that encouragement is so important and I always aim to create an encouraging and ‘just try-again’ environment, celebrating even small victories.

Seasoned Mathematics Tutor with years of experience, and a current PhD student

Hello! My name is Nerijus, although you can call me Neri for short. I am a private mathematics tutor in the Sheffield area, who is available for ONLINE and IN-PERSON tuition. In addition, I make challenging A-Level Maths & Further Maths papers for students to practice from. I am a recent Loughborough University graduate (Class of 2020) holding a strong first-class Master of Mathematics degree (MMath). In October 2020, I am starting my PhD in Applied Mathematics back at Loughborough for which I have secured a full 4-year scholarship. My research area concerns developing and analysing extended mathematical models in field of nonlinear wave dynamics using various modern mathematical wave theory techniques, and concepts from fluid mechanics. In addition to my own studies, I enjoy tutoring other students and watching them become competent in a subject that most seem to fear! I decided to begin tutoring and help many struggling GCSE, A-Level, and University students get to grips with their mathematics, and be confident that they are more than able to achieve the highest possible grade in their examinations. Some benefits which I gain from tutoring include developing my own communication skills, retaining certain mathematical knowledge, and simply having the pleasure of impacting on someone’s success in a positive light. Throughout my own academic journey, I have taken upon numerous opportunities to tutor students of different abilities and help them get the grades they wish for. Initially, I began as a non-profit tutor in my own school where I tutored Year 8-11 students, and this involved boosting their confidence in the subject as well as providing new ways to approach problems and solve them. Whilst this opportunity was not as long-term as others, the improvement of the students was clear-cut. Their algebra got much better over time, they started to think laterally about problems, and the topics which once haunted them were no longer an obstacle. In summer of 2016, after some tutoring experience and after receiving my A-Level results, I decided to become a part-time tutor. In turn, I have signed up to several tutoring websites, and slowly began tutoring students in their own homes as well as online. In the most recent academic year 2019-2020, I had the pleasure of tutoring three students on a regular basis. One of which was a Y1 / AS Maths student, another was a Y2 / A2 Maths student, and the third was a second-year university student studying a Mathematics & Statistics course. In 2017, I was granted two opportunities; one of which was to work with an outreach programme titled ‘PATHWAYS Project’ run by a partnership of Leicestershire Universities. This involved being properly trained to be a tutor (safeguarding, teaching approaches, various scenario handling) before being sent off to tutor at two different schools every week. The tutoring largely involved the same approach as before, but now I was able to build more rapport with my tutees, and I often created revision material tailored to the specific students which I tutored. At these schools, I often tutored a small group of students (2-4) which were identified by the schools to require the most improvement in the subject. The second opportunity was ultimately the same, but run by Loughborough University closer to the exam season, whereby I was sent to help tutor larger groups of students as part of their final revision push before exams in the Swadlincote area. All this has given me plenty of experience and teaching knowledge that I apply to every session I run. In total, I have tutored for over 400 hours in the last few years. My teaching style has also been refined over this period, and I usually like to dedicate first sessions to building rapport with my tutees, discussing which topics they want to focus on, how confident they are at the beginning of tutoring, and then plan my lessons in advance accordingly. Occasionally, I like to ask for small, informal feedback in the sessions to make sure my tutees are happy with the service they are provided. This is to ensure that I do not go too fast or too slow, and that we don’t leave behind any misunderstood topics. How does tuition work? I provide a personal Google Drive link where all the resources we cover are uploaded and can be viewed at your leisure. Online sessions are done via Skype (or Zoom), and I use my tablet to write any mathematics we discuss. These notes are uploaded to Google Drive for you by the end of the day.
