My name is Iris. I am on track to go to University this coming autumn, reading Psychology. Over the course of the last two years, I have completed six A-Levels - Russian, French, Computing, Politics, Maths, and Further Maths. This has made me into an organised and reliable person capable of quality time-management.
At GCSE, I did Maths, English Language, English Literature, Religious Studies, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, French, Russian, Latin, and History, and promptly fell in love with Maths (which is why I took three STEM-heavy subjects for A-Level). I am fully confident in my ability to explain concepts that may be difficult for some students, because I remember being in the same position as them; despite my love for Maths, there were still times when I found it difficult. I find having gone through those ruts myself beneficial to my overall grasp on the subject.
I am offering tutor help in GCSE Maths, English Language, and English Literature to anyone who has begun their course and feels like they need a boost. Having tutored for a couple of years with the students in lower school in various subjects, I have come to have my own system, which I will apply to online tutoring, as well:
1) First, we must LEARN the skills that allow us to answer questions well, ie how to structure an essay emphatically, how to pick out quotations, the various formulae that we use in solving mathematical equations. We therefore have a solid foundation that we can always fall back on.
2) Second, we must APPLY these skills to different situations, ie reading through set texts and poems together, becoming more comfortable with analysing unseen texts and poetry on the fly, talk through example maths questions that use the formulae we learned in Step (1). This gives the student a lot more confidence in their own ability and means that they are not left floundering when we move on to Step (3).
3) Finally, we must TEST your knowledge, ie going through past papers, writing essays, and completing worksheets. This allows us to test our understanding of the content and skills we learned, and aknowledge and tackle any outstanding weaknesses.
As much as tutoring is an opportunity for my potential students, it is also an opportunity for me. I love tutoring and working with kids and teenagers, and want to be a teacher in the future. I am happy to work individually or in groups, over Zoom or any other similar online platforms, set and mark homework, and create personalised teaching plans for the students that we will adhere to week by week. My number one priority is to make sure you achieve the grade you want or need.
