Information about Serife

I completed a PhD in Computational Biology in 2019 with minor corrections. I have also previously completed a BSc in mathematics, statistics and computing with first class honours and a MSc in Applied Mathematics with distinction. Recently, I was awarded Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) and am currently working towards obtaining a PGCHEP (Post-Graduate Certificate in Higher Education Practice). My experience and knowledge range from mathematical and theoretical to numerical and computational. I have included a list of some of the relevant modules I have taken during my MSc and BSc degrees below.

MSc Modules taken:
- Computational methods (with Matlab)
- Inverse problems (with Matlab)
- Scientific software design & development (with VBA)
- Mathematics of complex systems (acoustics, mechanics and electromagnetism) (with Matlab + PDE Tool)
- Research project: Numerical Modelling of Glacier Systems (with Matlab)

BSc Modules taken:
Year 3: Methods of Nonlinear Mathematics (with MATLAB), Numerical Methods & Software for Partial Differential Equations (with MATLAB and Excel), Actuarial Mathematics, Methods of Optimisation, Scheduling Models & Algorithms, and Statistical Modelling.
Year 2: Linear Algebra, Numerical Methods & Computer Algorithms (with MATLAB), Operational Research & Personal Development, and Statistical Methods.
Year 1: Calculus & Mathematical Methods, Mathematical Technology & Thinking (with MATLAB), Discrete Mathematics & Combinatorics, and Probability & Statistics.
BSc dissertation: Climate Modelling (Energy Balance models with MATLAB).

Availability: Please check my schedule on Tutor Hunt. Usually available evenings and Sundays but may have exceptions. Can accommodate urgent requests depending on the nature of request. Also accept a group of students that would like to take the same classes.

Experience: Since 2020, I have been teaching in class and online using Zoom at University of Greenwich and University of Essex. The Zoom classes are interactive online lessons and focus on mathematics and statistics support sometimes delivered in combination with the use of software such as SPSS, R or MATLAB. My students range from GCSE to postgraduate degree level. Students I teach come from different backgrounds and their degree subjects vary. Some examples are these: computer science, health science, chemistry, biology, psychology, economics, business, and nursing. Although I have been a Tutor Hunt member for at least 8 years, I have only been actively tutoring on this platform since June 2022.

Prior to the start of my teaching experience in 2019, I have mentored fellow students in Mathematics and Statistics during college, BSc and MSc degrees whilst studying. Students mentored have successfully completed their degrees and now are following successful careers. I specialise in numerical and computational mathematics, thus, can help with discretisation of equations, application of different methods (FDM or FVM) and solving them using MATLAB (or VBA).

NB: I hold a DBS check obtained during my involvement with STEM at secondary schools whilst a Systems Engineer in 2019.

DBS Check: Yes

Really great teacher, take time to explain topics thoroughly and answers any questions to make sure I had a good grasp on the topic. Would highly recommend

During several sessions we had so far, Serife has helped me a lot with statistics and apart from being knowledgeable and skillful in this subject, she is also incredibly flexible, kind and tolerant. Serife went above and beyond to help me and she was responsive to all my queries outside of the hours we had booked for a lesson. Serife is a person who genuinely cares about her students, she is not only here with the agenda to profit from her knowledge, which is not something you commonly see on Tutor Hunt and other educational websites. I would highly recommend Serife to everyone who is struggling with statistics, and related subjects, as she has been a great help and a joy to work with.

Tutors Response :

Thank you very much Mila for this lovely feedback. It is so nice to hear that you have found our sessions helpful :-). Your feedback means a lot. Wish you the very best and you are most welcome to contact me again in future if you ever need any help.

Dr. Serife helped me create complicated graphs on excel, and she was very knowledgeable on the matter, and helped me a lot. I was struggling recently to find a teacher who could help me within my budget, Thanks to Dr.Serife guidance and expertise, I was able to create professional-looking graphs that were both informative and visually appealing. She is truly a fantastic teacher and a pleasure to work with.

Tutors Response :

Thank you very much Abdulaziz for this beautiful feedback. It was a pleasure to help you out. Wish you the best in your studies. You are always welcome to contact me again in future if you ever need to. :-)

Dr Serife was very personable, understanding and helpful. She is also very knowledgeable and enabled me to quickly grasp concepts that were foreign to me under a narrow time frame. Highly highly recommend - nothing was too much for Serife and she would go above and beyond with the preparation for our sessions and helped me to achieve the results that I wanted in my second year Mathematics for finance course. Will be continuing to use her regularly in my final year. A big thank you to Dr Serife.

Tutors Response :

Thank you very much Megan for this great feedback. I am very glad to hear back from you regarding your results. A big CONGRATULATIONS on doing well in such a short time frame. I will be happy to tutor you again for your final year exams. I will keep in touch and let you know about my availability hopefully soon.

Serife was quite literally a lifesaver for me, I had my Masters dissertation submission in a week and contacted Serife regarding help with data analysis in SPSS and she was able to book a meeting with me in a days time, sorted out everything with my data and helped me perform the analysis and interpret results within 3 days total. I was able to submit my dissertation on time successfully and was very satisfied with my analysis results. I would definitely recommend everyone to take classes from her. She is an amazing, kind and helpful person and I could never thank her enough! Thank you so much once again Serife :)

Tutors Response :

Thank you very much Trishita for this lovely feedback. I thoroughly enjoyed working with you and found your topic to be very interesting. I wish you every success in your dissertation and future aspirations. You can always contact me again in future and I will be very happy to help you. Good luck in your dissertation. Take care.

Serife has really helped my daughter. She has taught her MatLab and how to apply it with examples relevant tto her degree.(1st year Uni student). I would definitely recommend her.

Tutors Response :

Thank you very much Caroline for the great feedback. It is very much appreciated. I have enjoyed helping your daughter learn MATLAB. She is getting along well and taking the initiative to solving problems independently. No doubt she will do well in her studies.
