I have recently graduated from the University of Cambridge and will soon be flying to Australia to coach for the upcoming rowing season at a school in Orange in New South Wales. I plan on exploring the country and travelling south east Asia during my time off. I have been rowing for 4 years since leaving school and would like to gain more experience coaching and also have the opportunity myself to train and compete.
I started tutoring economics two years ago to local GCSE economics students in my university vacations. I tailor my sessions to the student and their abilities and make sure they are engaged and want to learn more.
During summer 2015 I also traveled to China and taught economics for 8 weeks to 16-17 year old Chinese students applying to UK universities and Oxford and Cambridge. This focused on taking students beyond the A-level syllabus and consulting on personal statements. I also conducted mock interviews and provided feedback on problem questions that I created for the students to test their ability.
I have experience of teaching one-on-one and in a classroom with up to 12 students, and have tutored a range of abilities. I am adaptable and hard-working and make sure my sessions are fully prepared and engaging.
