I have been tutoring for more than 10 years, across a range of skill levels from GCSE to degree level. I come from a family of teachers and tutored students from the age of 16.
Shaun's last completed A Level Engineering job with Zara: 1-2 hrs/week - I have a 11 your old son who is home schooled...he is very keen to study engineering...
I worked as a teaching assistant, marker, and lab instructor at the University of Alberta, Canada. I taught power electronics and variable speed drives, where I helped students to understand and apply courses theoretical material in lab sessions using typical industrial equipment (PLX15 DC Drive, PowerFlex 70 AC Drive, Allen-Bradley Induction Machine, and Power quality analyzer).
Additionally, I taught several power system courses (Electrical Measurements, Energy Conversion Systems, Induction Machines, Modern Control, Transmission and Distribution of Electrical Energy, Power System Analysis and Power Electronics) at Ain Shams University and Arab Academy for Science and Technology and Maritime Transport, Egypt.
I also prepared theoretical material and co-supervision of Power Electronics, Electrical Machines, Power Systems, Protection, High Voltage, Automation (ABB PLCs and ABB VSDs), and Electrical Measurements labs.
I am a very experienced maths and civil engineering tutor with over 500 hours teaching experience achieved over the last 4 years. I am a chartered civil engineer and a Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers CEng FICE. I am also a part time lecturer in a local regional college.
I also specialise in Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths (STEM) subjects such as maths, physics and engineering at GCSE and A level, having tutored at least 20 students to success. I am a STEM Ambassador for schools for ICE.
What makes me a good tutor is the ability to work at the pace of the student with the patience to understand the students needs. I take a step by step approach so the student can easily follow the guidance and builds confidence.
I have successfully tutored students to GCSE and A level maths and physics and GCSE Business Studies. I take particular pride in seeing students reach their full potential in exams.

I have tutored undergraduates for the past 3 years at the Department of Engineering Science, Oxford. I have closely worked with two Masters students (who have both achieved First Class thesis) and 8 undergraduate students at two colleges in the University of Oxford. I have also worked wit the admissions office at Lady Margaret Hall to assist in both marking entrance tests and conducting UCAS interviews at the college.
Mohammed's last completed A Level Engineering job with Katie: Occasional - My son, Hugh, is in his first year of BTEC level 3 engineering. He is dyslexic and dyspraxic and as a result, needs to overlearn, review and preview material. He is looking for this type of support once a month for the next couple of years. He would like to start with FETs - he will have only just started this topic.
Analogue and Digital circuits
Amin's last completed A Level Engineering job with Amira: Intensive - I am studying electrical engineering and because of the lockdown, we have not had any classes but we have been given assignments. I am looking for a tutor to assist in my coursework subjects to start with.
3+ Years of private tutoring focusing on Matlab and engineering sciences
Tutoring across all years of the Imperial College Undergraduate Mechanical Engineering:
ME2 Thermodynamics - Engine test lab demonstration and coursework marking.
ME3 Thermodynamics and Energy - Tutorials.
ME4 Vehicle Propulsion Technology - Assist in coursework preparation, marking and the supporting tutorials.

Now approaching 10 years as an Electronics Design Engineer and Leading Electronics Teams designing Laboratory Instruments and Large Machines, I am responsible for Circuit Designs and training of Engineers and Graduates. I have always tutored students from I myself was a student, through to today, where I have now successfully tutored and seen many students through their Module Exams, Full Degrees and even lead them into successful careers.
I currently lead Electronics and Mechanical teams as Lead Hardware Engineer to a Medical Company designing Neonatal Ventilators. I train Engineers, Graduates and Non-Technical Staff, as well as prepare documentation and organise Projects for success and on-time and on-budget delivery.
Tutoring students, my style is to synchronise our efforts with their Module Notes, while adding in strong and practical understanding of governing and foundational principles, while we tackle the theory and associated equations. Adding a modern and relevant industrial perspective is my unique offering in this process. Our efforts are entirely driven by the student, slowing down on more challenging topics, and drilling into a depth of detail appropriate to my student. Satisfying desired deadlines for covering course materials and preparing courseworks will always be the main drive of how our time is prepared.
As a tutor, I have supported individuals studying A-Levels, BTEC and of course studying at University, up to PhD level in Electrical & Electronic Engineering, as well as Computer Science. I am certainly also happy, and competent to support students in Physics and Mathematics as desired.
Coming from a local state school, I have experienced some of the difficulties that come with teaching yourself beyond the syllabus or even asking the teacher for that extra bit of time to go over certain key topics one more time. I have been tutoring for over 3 years now with several different organisations including Schools Plus, MyTutorWeb as well as Paiwand Afgan Association.
I believe that the best way to learn is really a good dialogue between teacher and student about a topic and then getting stuck in with applications. I feel that the key skill a lot of students lack, at least initially is the knack of being able to spend the least amount of time possible on the raw theory and then getting stuck into real life questions to fully solidify your understanding.
