Prior to my degree, I studied 11 GCSEs with A* and A in Mathematics and English language respectively, and 5 A-levels. A-levels (Maths, Further Maths, Physics, Chemistry, and Engineering Extended Project) were tailored towards reading Engineering. For that reason, not only are these subjects I can assist with, I am more than happy to give advice or help on anything Engineering or university related too - I did the same...but just a few years ago! I also have experience in working at professional environments, particularly engineering consultancy as a current working Engineer and as a previously selected intern, so I certainly can provide 1st hand personal experience in the industry, and gear you towards the right direction too if seeking for general career plans in this field!
The most crucial idea, is to realise that these lessons are for your benefit. No one except for yourself will know what you may find easy/difficult the best, and so you may guide the lesson however you please to. Certainly, if you are stuck for ideas, I am still more than happy to cover specific fundamental areas I believe are most important or which people generally find difficult.
Whilst exam results are what is ultimately received by universities/institutions/employers, I firmly believe it is necessary to do more than just adhering to syllabuses and knowing how to regurgitate mark schemes, but also to learn around the general subject (along with the syllabus so still to be relevant). Not only should this make learning more interesting, true and genuine understanding allows you to know answers to any question in however way the examiner wishes. Unexpected or even never seen things do crop up now and then - trust me I`ve experienced it all! I offer this extension.
