Information about Craig
I am working towards a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering. I am lively and friendly and I enjoy learning as well as teaching.
I understand that many students learn in different ways and I try to adapt my style of teaching to the students needs. I am patient and I recognise that mathematics can be a difficult concept to grasp and is something which takes practice. I am friendly and approachable and I try to developed a relaxed and comfortable learning environment. Lastly I really enjoy mathematics and teaching and I think this transfer to the students!
Availability: I am available weekday evenings and at the weekends
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I have been a Mathematics tutor at the University of Glasgow for three years while doing my Ph.D. During this time I have taught a large number of students, with varying levels of ability, and helped them get to the standard required for their university career.
I have worked as a private tutor at university level on a one-on-one basis for three years, teaching Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, Statics, Dynamics and Mathematics. I have enjoyed seeing my pupils grow more confident as they progress with the material.
Additionally I have privately tutored a range of School level courses, including standard grade, Higher, A.Higher and A-level mathematics Standard grade, Higher and A.Higher Physics.
I have further experience lecturing MATLAB computer programming to first and second year university students.
Lastly, I have worked in Spain teaching English to young children. It has taught me my varied teaching style and patience in difficult situations.
Feedback For Craig (2)
Very thorough and very clear tuition with a real attempt to teach me in a way I would properly understand
Craig was incredibly helpful during the run up to my exams. He was happy to cover any areas that were giving me trouble and explained them clearly. Craig was extremely easy to talk to and would happily answer any question I had, simple or complex. I would certainly recommend Craig to anyone who feels they need help.
