I'm a Maths and Physics graduate from Keele University (1st class honours) currently on a gap year due to financial reasons but will go on to a masters in Gravity particles and fields at the university of Nottingham the following year. Im part of the UOTC (university officer training core) serving as a part time job taking us through the army reserve phase one training while at university. My main current hobby/ technical project is 3D printing, I'm planing on using it in lessons where it would be useful but in the meantime im currently making branded keychains for local shops and designing gaming paddles for console controllers.
I have worked as a tutor for approximately a year now, successfully tutoring students at all levels over zoom and in real life (what a time to be alive).
Lessons are very individual, but a general structure that is tried and tested in my army reserve (UOTC) time was the Explanation, Demonstration, Imitation followed by practice practice practice structure. This is a good structure as it puts me in somewhat of a difficult situation to plan lessons with the demonstrating part for maths students but will then give very good results after planning the lesson. One very good example was the lesson that I had the chance to bring that "Z and F" angle rules with trig and circular segments to find the size of the earth using shadows of a stick placed in the ground as part of a physics outreach project we did in keeles physics society.
Exam Board Experience
During my A levels my courses were all run by different examination boards as well as my degree being run by two different schools different of examining bodies is something that i am used to and work well with.
Student Success Stories
Due to the lockdown and of course privacy laws as I was working for an agency while in stoke I lost contact with the students I tutored and didn't get a chance to see how well they did in the end, tho for what its worth my group of friends that I often helped with Maths in Physics all got a first class degrees with me this year.
