Mentoring Mathematics - Personalised Tuition for Swamped Students

Mathematics is a highly sought skill in any job or career. In my experience, the beginning of high school is when students decide if they love or hate maths; this is an important time to show them that it isn't that scary! Everything has a reason and, if you learn it right, can feel like cheating!
This class helps students learn how and why mathematics works the way it does, crushes their fear of complex equations or concepts, and instills a newfound confidence and appreciation. From learning how counting works to nailing your Higher maths exam, this class is tailored to the student!
Lessons are aimed at students in high school, however anyone outwith this who wants to learn about these topics is more than welcome!

Extra information

I will provide any materials for in-person lessons such as worksheets, textbooks, and basic stationery. Students in S2 or above are expected to have a scientific calculator, however I can bring a spare.
For online classes, students just need a reliable internet connection and some method of taking notes or trying practice questions.

About Me

I have mentored hundreds of students over three years. From teaching P1s how to write numbers to S6s preparing for their examinations, I always pride myself in personalising the lessons to the student. High school is a difficult time and students don't often have a strong support system to help them understand what mathematics is, let alone attempt it!
My work adage is to try! Even if it is completely wrong, you'll have put the effort in and learned something in the process.

Education

I completed my National 5s, Highers, and Advanced Highers before beginning university, where I achieved a BSc in Mathematics. Alongside this, I have various miscellanious qualifications and skills to help any student.

Experience / Qualifications

I have tutored for 3 years, helping students from various backgrounds and skill levels. I have taught many students who are studying for exams and helped advance their skill and understanding.

Aidan
Mathematics Tutor teaching between KS2 to A Levels/Highers level
Maths is a brilliant subject with many real-life applications, so I aim to teach students one-on-one in order to prepare them not only for exams, but also to showcase the applications of Mathematics across all facets of life. Throughout my Mathematics degree at University, I have had the opportunity to teach classes within Maths Education courses and volunteering as part of the University's Outreach team, meaning I can use these experiences to ensure the tutoring is an engaging experience, as I believe it is important for students to enjoy learning Maths and see its uses in the world in order to understand it best. I also have an Enhanced DBS certification as a result of these experiences. Studying Mathematics and Music at the University of Edinburgh has been an enjoyable and social experience, and through both the courses I have taken within Statistics, Pure and Applied Maths, along with extra-curricular commitments such as presenting an exhibit at the Edinburgh Science Festival, I have experience in how to communicate efficiently and be organised when planning and conducting a lesson. I also am adept at time management and being adaptable through the range of other extra-curricular activities I have partaken in, in particular Music, which will allow me to conduct lessons in a friendly and fun manner. My outside interests include performing the Piano up to Undergraduate standard, Singing in various choirs and acapella groups in the city as well as a range of different sports ranging from Hockey to Korfball.

Benoit
Private math lessons - Limoges or online - Qualified and experienced math teacher
I am a qualified and experienced mathematics tutor. Graduated from the Free University of Brussels in 2011, I started my career by teaching remedial courses in different schools in Brussels. I then specialized in individual academic support by following educational training at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I have been giving private mathematics lessons daily for over ten years. The students who follow my private lessons benefit from personalized support. The first session is devoted to an in-depth assessment of the student's mathematical knowledge. The objective is to detect its weak points and understand their origin in order to adapt my courses to its needs. I develop a tailor-made remediation program for each of my students aimed at filling each of their gaps. Over the course of the sessions, the student builds a solid foundation for learning and regains self-confidence. At the same time, I help him acquire a work methodology that allows him to gradually become autonomous in his studies. I have a perfect knowledge of the mathematics program of the College and the High School (from the Sixth to the Terminale). During my formative years, I studied and developed many techniques that make it easier to learn math. The strength of my pedagogical approach lies in my ability to explain in a simple way everything that the student finds complicated. I am passionate about this job because it gives me the opportunity to guide dropout students on the path to success. It is a real pleasure to see them evolve and come to terms with the fantastic world of mathematics. I provide my private lessons in Limoges (at the student's home) or remotely (online via the internet). My distance learning courses take place on an interactive online whiteboard. This board is specially designed to promote student/teacher interaction on the internet. Thanks to this educational tool, my online courses are as effective as home courses. The student only needs an internet connection and a computer, tablet, or smartphone to take advantage of it.

Reza

I hold a PhD in Mechanical Engineering and currently work as a post-doctoral researcher in the Aerospace Engineering Faculty at TU Delft (Delft University of Technology). My extensive teaching experience covers a wide range of engineering courses, including: - Mathematics: algebra, linear algebra, probability, calculus, differential equations, intellectual math, and advanced engineering mathematics. - Mechanical Engineering: Statics, Dynamics, Mechanics of materials, Mechanical design, control, vibration, Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Heat transfer, Engineering drawing, Applied Mechanics, Composite Structures, Flight, Machine Elements, Manufacturing, 3D printing, and more. - Physics: mechanics, momentum and energy, electricity, charge and current, electric and magnetic fields, waves, particle physics, nuclear decay, astrophysics, cosmology, oscillations, etc. - CAD/CAM Software: Autocad, Solidworks. - Mechanical Design Packages: ANSYS, APDL programming, ABAQUS, MATLAB, Symbolic MATLAB, LS-DYNA. My research and teaching interests are diverse, including: • Additive manufacturing • Mechanical metamaterials • Acoustical metamaterials • Electromagnetic metamaterials • Aeroacoustics • Soft matter and soft robotics • Fatigue and fracture mechanics • Experimental mechanics • Multiscale numerical modelling • Biomaterials • Porous materials • Manufacturing of medical devices and implants • Deep learning • Image processing • Topology optimization • Origami and Kirigami structures • Self-folding and self-assembly structures • Tissue engineering • Permeability in porous materials • Fluid-Solid Interaction I understand that not all teachers excel in teaching Engineering and Mathematics courses and explaining their importance to students. Courses with strong mathematical backgrounds may become boring for students who lack a solid mathematical basis. To address this, I take a student-centered approach, starting from the basics to actively engage all students, including those with weaker mathematical backgrounds. I also provide practical examples to demonstrate the real-world significance of what they are learning, inspiring and fostering their interest in the subject matter. If you have any additional questions before starting a class, please feel free to ask me. I am here to assist! :)

Salah Eddine
Math tutoring for high school students
As a teaching professional, I have always enjoyed sharing my knowledge. My goal is to provide quality education. I am aware that some topics may seem complex, but often this is simply the result of an inadequate explanation by the teacher. With me, you will discover a real interest in the material! We strive together to achieve academic excellence, overcoming the shortcomings and difficulties encountered by your child. Studies will become a pleasant experience for him. In addition to the courses, I can also help with school orientation, identifying their preferences and highlighting the advantages and benefits of a fulfilling educational ambition. The sessions generally take place according to the following stages: 1️⃣ The first sessions are devoted to the assessment of the student's level in order to detect existing gaps. 2️⃣ Next, we create a personalized plan to address these gaps, including the number of hours of work needed, specific areas to focus on, and appropriate training and development exercises. 3️⃣ We stay in constant contact with the student's class teacher, to keep up to date with the latest requirements and ensure a consistent approach. 4️⃣ Subsequently, I provide exams similar to those that are likely to be asked in class, to prepare the student effectively. 5️⃣ Upon request, I write a regular report, usually monthly, to keep parents informed of their child's progress throughout their course. I adapt my methodology according to the specific needs of each student, thus offering them a personalized and adapted work approach. In addition, I offer crash courses for students preparing for the start of the school year, allowing them to start the year well prepared, with a solid lead on the school curriculum. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to help you.
