Information about Avishan
Hello! My name is Avishan, I am a physics graduate and I am extremely passionate about everything mathematics related. I have achieved A* and A grades in mathematics throughout GCSE and A-Level, and I am also a capable and enthusiastic teacher of KS3/GCSE/iGCSE Sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics).

Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: Prior to starting my physics degree at university, I worked as a teaching assistant/tutor at a secondary school during my gap year, and I am continuing tutoring whilst at university as I genuinely admire teaching maths, amongst other subjects and I love having the opportunity to show students how exciting learning can really be. During my time teaching at a school, in addition to teaching students on an individual basis, I took on the responsibility of teaching small classes myself, and I was also a mentor to a group of Year 11 pupils, having helped them with GCSE revision every week.
I usually tend to approach lessons by going through the background of the topic in focus and a few worked examples before giving students questions to answer themselves and going through worked solutions. Independent practice is a key part of becoming stronger in a subject, and the more a student practices, the better they will get, and this is a truly rewarding feeling. Throughout lessons, I work with a highly friendly, approachable and patient approach to tutoring, as it is vital to ensure that my students feel comfortable to ask questions on whatever topic they may have difficulties with. In addition, students should never be afraid to ask for further explanation if they do not understand a concept the first time around, as many concepts can be difficult to grasp initially and this is why it is so important to encourage students to ask questions whenever they feel like it.
Furthermore, I aim to be as concise in my explanations as possible and I like to break down problems into manageable chunks. For example, I encourage students to underline keywords in questions and, particularly in maths and science, to draw diagrams to help them visualise problems. When it comes to exam technique I teach students precisely how to answer certain styles of question to score full marks and show as much working wherever possible. This is not only a very important skill to have to get good grades, but it will help them develop more of an understanding of the problems they are solving.
