About Me

Biography:

Fortunately the value of education was instilled in me from a very young age and I was lucky enough to receive the support needed to succeed in education. The Grammar school teaching I received allowed me to thrive and realise my abilities in the technical subjects. Developing a keen interest in science and buildings led me squarely towards Civil Engineering. Through my undergraduate study at Imperial College London I was able to hone my skills and interests (in programming, engineering design, philosophy) whilst also allowing me to appreciate the importance of effective teaching but also how it differed from average or less effective forms. It was during this time that I became more involved in tutoring, which is something that I hope to continue as I go onto my PhD. Being in an environment tailored towards research, academia and further learning I feel will provide me with even greater insight into teaching practises and effectively communicating knowledge.

Teaching Experience:

Having tutored for a number of years I have a wealth of experience tutoring a range of subjects to a broad spectrum of students. This has provided me with invaluable expertise in teaching across different modes (one-to-one, classrooms or through online portals) and in understanding the needs of specific students based on their background, previous learning experience and natural abilities. Having been exposed to a diverse range of teaching settings I am well equipped to deliver engaging and impactful lessons that rouse my students’ interest in their subjects, motivation to study and confidence in their outlook. My core subject specialities are the Maths and Sciences (including Computer Science) which exploit the technical and analytical skills I have developed through my studies. I am also capable of teaching, in a more foundational capacity, Philosophy and Economics since they are subjects I have taken a deep personal interest in over the years and enjoy engaging with.

As a result of my teaching, and studying, experience I like to think of learning as an exercise in structuring knowledge. Therefore the way I approach any new student is to gain a full appreciation of the student’s understanding of a subject and ensure that they have a good conceptual and knowledge base from which to build atop of. In this way teaching can move forward in a more effective manner as material is introduced in a way which resonates with the student’s learning style.

Online Experience:

Given the circumstances I have been adapting my teaching style to fit the online format and have found it to be an interesting exercise. It has uncovered to me new methods and strategies for providing effective learning experiences by leveraging the tools and functionality provided by technology.

An example of an instance where I was able to exploit the advantages of the online platform over in-person teaching to give impactful lessons was during a python summer camp I taught. Since it was the first time the students had worked with code I was eager to ensure that the lessons were deeply hands-on as to demystify the coding process to my students. Doing this through an online portal was advantageous since by being able to share my screen it reduced the friction which would've otherwise existed when trying to showing how to write, and explaining, code to a whole class at the same time.

Eman
Mathematics, Further Mathematics & Computer Science KS2, KS3, KS4
Hi, I'm Eman and I just finished studying A-Level Maths, Further Maths, Computer Science and AEA Mathematics from City and Islington College and I will be studying MEng Mathematical Computation at UCL from September 2021. Ever since first being taught maths and sciences I have had a passion for them and love learning more and being able to understand interesting topics. I achieved 14 A* grades at SSC ( Bangladesh's Secondary Completion Qualification, Homologous to GCSE), 9 in GCSE Mathematics, 7 in GCSE English Language, and D*D* in BTEC L2 Computing (Equivalent with 4A* in GCSE) therefore know what is required of students to succeed and have plenty of important revision tips that I want to pass on. I also studied the new A-level curriculum so have up-to-date subject knowledge. Often the maths and computer science feature concepts that are daunting and challenging to understand at first, but through considered and targeted explanations, repetition of crucial ideas (particularly by linking ideas across subjects, one of my favorite revision techniques at GCSE), and consolidation of ideas using past exam questions it is possible to gain a deep understanding that will serve you well through final year exams and beyond. Learning is a unique process and everybody has different ways of learning best, therefore I will aim to adapt tutorials to meet the needs of a particular student. I will always ensure that prior to the tutorial I know what topics the student wishes to cover so that I can prepare materials (e.g. source appropriate past exam questions) and consult the relevant exam board specification so that we cover everything they need to know - there will be no nasty surprises in the exam. A typical tutorial would have the following structure: A starter activity to recap what we covered in the previous week, helping the student to revise as we go along. An explanation of the key ideas we are covering, and a check of how much the student already knows. Then comes real learning! The majority of the lesson will be devoted to covering the necessary content at a pace and level appropriate to the student. Usually, I will verbally explain the topic in an informal conversation with the student before writing notes onto the board for them to copy down (that way they have something to refer back to later). Past exam paper questions as practice. And lastly, if appropriate, how these ideas link to other things they may have covered or are yet to cover. But most importantly, I aim to create a relaxed and fun environment for learning where the student can feel confident in their own abilities and will enjoy the learning process!

Private coding / programming lessons with python
Python is one of the best, or the best, language to start learning to code. It is, also, one of the languages more used today. Particularly in the more avant-garde fields, machine learning, for example. This popularity makes python constantly evolve. Its tools and libraries are ample, free and very varied. I am an aeronautical engineer who likes to share what he can do. I profit by teaching and motivating people. I am used to working with people of different ages. I believe in segmentation, visualization of progress, objective results and practice. Beyond these general lines, there is no rule or magic method. Some things work with some students and not with others. Adapting to needs is really the goal of private lessons. So I will do my best to find what motivates and helps my student.

Jaume
SPANISH APPENDICES FOR BEGINNERS AND / OR ADVANCED PERSONS
In my lessons I will teach you Spanish. We adjust the lessons depending on your goal, level and pace. I teach in English, but my mother tongue is Spanish. In the lessons we deal with grammar and vocabulary. And several practical exercises. Students who need tutoring, just like adults who want to learn fluent Spanish, can come to me. During the coronavirus situation, lessons will be given via skype. For more information, send me a message :)

Math, Physics, Programming and Computer Science (IB) tutoring
I specialize in IB and AP curriculum but can, of course, tutor regular high school classes as well. I can help students catch up, keep up or get ahead of their curriculum in mathematics, physics, computer science or programming. I try to explain these matters in a meaningful way, to provide students with an understanding of the subjects, not just the ability to solve formulas and memorize.

Create fun games and interactive programs in Python (adults)
Python is easier to learn and understand than other programming languages. Its instructions are simple and easily readable with a clean syntax which doesn't really involve complex coding. However simple and easy to learn, Python can be used to create the highly interactive programs. This course aims to engage learners with little or even no previous programming experience. The programme for beginners starts with an introduction to the basic fundamentals of Python (expressions, conditionals, and functions). Then, as the course progresses, learners will be able to combine Python commands and modules like Pygame, Matplotlib, Numpy and Tkinter to implement their ideas and develop skills like computational thinking, creativity and problem solving. The content and pace of the course is adapted to the age and needs of the learners.

Learn Arduino, STM32 programming using C language and ARM assembler, Z80, CubeIDE
I am an associate professor in industrial engineering and electrical engineering, passionate about electronics and industrial IT, I have carried out several projects in the field of industrial automation ARDUINO, and the STM32 are free hardware microcontrollers. They are very useful for learning electronics and coding at the same time. They are great estimators because we can solve problems and watch the results physically. Thanks to the size of its community and the openness of its philosophy, information is widely accessible. ARDUINO, PICs and the STM32 allow us to undertake countless projects of all kinds. In a way, it's a little door through which you can easily access the world of makers. Among others. My main goal is to stimulate creativity and curiosity. In addition to allowing my student to acquire a level of competence that allows him to function on his own.

Lina
Basic Computer Programming. Python, C ++
This class is for anyone who wants to enter the world of computer programming, or those first semester engineering students who are becoming familiar with these languages. - I want to develop in the student the logic to communicate with the computer so that he can create programs and awaken his creativity. - I think that computer programming has too wide a field of application, which makes it almost useful for anyone in today's technological world to know how to program. - Programming is not only useful but fun and can help us understand concepts from other areas or from life itself.
