Information about Rebecca

Qualified engineer with over 2 years experience tutoring both privately and within schools. I have successfully helped a large number of students improve their understanding and their grades in both Maths and Physics. I also have over 5 years experience working with and mentoring students, from ages 11-18, in STEM career and education programmes including: Engineering Education in Schools, Girls Who Code and after school STEM clubs. I have a good track record of preparing students to study degree courses in Engineering and other STEM subjects and have extensive knowledge on how to prepare a strong application to universities.

For Maths and Physics, I take an example led approach to tutoring, working with the student through example questions to aid understanding and identify any areas of improvement. In a first session, I will ask the student about their self identified strengths/weaknesses and go through a recent piece of work with them. From here, I will work with the student to create a plan of tuition that will cover all of their requirements and improve their overall subject level and exam performance.

My tutoring services include:
- Producing model solutions to questions that the student and I have worked on during the session
- Reviewing class work/practice work that the student has struggled with previously
- Marking and providing feedback on work carried out between sessions
- Working through past papers with students to identify areas in need of improvement
- Supplying a tailored pack of resources to help students improve weaker areas

For programming, again I like to take a more practical approach and will lead the student through their own project, learning coding concepts as they build.

My programming tutoring services include:
- Work with the student to come up with a suitable level project that is of interest to the student and will cover key coding concepts
- An explanation of software development tools and processes
- Detailed explanation of key coding concepts with examples
- Broken down tasks which build on the work from the session, progress the project and which the student can work on between sessions

Availability: Evenings and weekends. I am available for midweek daytime slots during most school holidays as well.

I am currently running all of my sessions online which I have found to be just as effective as face to face tutoring.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I have over 2 years of tutoring experience, both privately through various tutoring platforms, and in a school setting. I have been a STEM ambassador for over 4 years and have taken part in several STEM education programmes working with students from 11 to 18. I have also successfully mentored students through University applications to engineering degree programmes, and have a good understanding of the application system (including the Oxbridge system) from working on various STEM career initiatives.

I have, until recently, been a volunteer club leader for a coding club, helping students aged 11-16 to learn programming and create their own development projects in both Scratch, Python and Javascri pt. The club has been very successful, with each student finishing a project of their choice and requesting a new `programme of projects` as soon as it is safe to start meeting again.

Employment:

- I currently work as a self-employed tutor using various platforms

- From 2018-2020 I worked as a Software Engineer at Jaguar Land Rover, designing and building in house software tools. I also found time for tutoring and mentoring students hoping to go into STEM careers in my free time.

- From 2016 - 2018 I worked as an aeronautical engineer at Jaguar Land Rover, improving the aerodynamics of various vehicle programmes through both simulation and physical testing. I was a very active STEM ambassador in my spare time, taking part in several education events.

- While studying from 2012 - 2016 I had internships with Jaguar Land Rover, working across various engineering departments. I also tutored Maths at a school local to my University.

Qualifications/Education:

- University of Durham (2012 - 2016) - First Class Honours in MEng General Engineering (Aeronautical). I received the top mark in my year for my research project and was asked to speak at the Universities `Rising Star Symposium`, at which I won both the `Bill Bryson Award for Communication in Science` and the `Audience Choice Award for Best Presentation`

- Jaguar Land Rover Sponsored Undergraduate Student (2014-2016)

- Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) Undergraduate Scholar (2012 - 2016)

- The Lady Eleanor Holles School (2005 - 2012):
~ 4 A levels: Maths A*, Further Maths A, Physics A*, Music A
~ AS Level English Literature A
~ AQA IB Qualification Distinction
~ EPQ Qualification Distinction
~ 10 GCES`s including an A* in Maths iGCSE and A* in Physics
