Information about Karolis
I am in my first year of Postgraduate studies in Legal and Political Theory at UCL. I received my undergraduate degree from Royal Holloway, University of London, where I achieved a 2:1. My degree predominantly consists of politics, law, philosophy and history. Outside of my university specialisations, I am also interested in Mathematics, Logic and Computer Science. I really think that the polymath approach to education maintained at secondary school provides the best educational environment for young minds and I would be honoured to help students excel at more than one discipline.
Willing to travel: 15 miles
Experience: Regarding my tutoring experience, I had a wonderful opportunity to volunteer at a summer school in Vilnius, Lithuania, where I worked with underperforming students, whether it is due to special needs such as Dyslexia and Aspergers, or students from underprivileged backgrounds lacking interest in the area of study. The primary focus of my work was to develop individualised learning plans that account for and adapt to the needs of the student. This often meant finding out what learning style the student is most accustomed to by discussing it with the student and or their parents. Most tutoring took place in a group of 10 to 15 students each accompanied by a volunteer, with the whole group supervised by a teacher.
It was heart-warming to see these students excel and build self-confidence through their academic success. Majority of the students I worked with saw a 48% improvement in their marks over the period of 3 months (in the Lithuanian grading system of 1 (worst) to 10 (best), the overall average mark of students at the beginning of the course was 4.72, and at the end of the course it was 6.97.
