Hello! I'm Alex, a mechanical engineering graduate and recent tutor, and I think that the best way to teach is to make a connection with students and find out how they learn best.
I break down subjects to help understanding, provide learning resources, and teach kids to work better by themselves, so that they can tackle their school homework better, learn better in class, and revise better. This can include setting homework between sessions.
I can teach exam technique, revision practices, and hopefully increase learning motivation and self confidence. The resources I'll use include textbooks, recommended reading, online videos and my personal revision notes as well as ones the student and I will create together.
Every student is different in how they learn and tackle exams, I try to find out what each student needs to understand the fundamental core of the subject.
I've taught students of varying ages from year 13 down to year 5 in one off maths lessons. I`m currently teaching a regular student requiring catch up in preparation for her 11+ exams. I've also worked as a teacher's assistant in a private school in Oxford briefly during my university career. Here I worked in the Maths department, teaching kids from year 9 to year 11.
I have 2 younger brothers currently in their GCSE years, and another in year 7 that I have been helping academically for years, that have given me plenty of feedback on different ways to teach.
GCSE - A* - B over 11 A Levels
A Levels - Maths, Physics, Computer Science
Bachelor of science in Mechanical Engineering
I am very flexible, and can work whenever suits the student best.
