Maths Grinds: Experienced tutor available
- Date Listed07/11/2018
I am a qualified 26 year old data scientist based outside Edgeworthstown and I generally tend to teach students in their own home as it's easier for parents.
I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Statistics from University College Dublin in 2015, where I was an entrance scholar in the Science department.
As part of my course I studied Maths, Applied Maths, Computer Science and Statistics, choosing to major in Statistics in my final two years of college.
The way I approach grinds is first to assess the student's needs and what are the key areas which the student feels they need to focus on. Using a mixture of worked examples and problems I believe that is one the best ways to understand the material. I am also of the opinion that completing as many exam papers as possible is the best way to learn any subject as questions are often repeated or reworded from previous years in both the LC and JC. Completing exam papers also allows students to become familiar with the style of exam questions.
I like to give students useful strategies that can improve time management and enable them to maximise their time efficiently in an exam.
Ultimately I use a flexible approach as no two students are the same and different methods of teaching can work for different students.
