Having completed my combined Bachelor's of Science and master's in mathematics at the University of St Andrews, Scotland I decided to study for my PhD in the U.S.
As a tutor at the University of Kentucky I have led tutorials for both individuals and classes of 40+ students, all with exceptional university feedback. I have taught Calculus I, II and III plus the University of Kentucky's business calculus course. Also I have extensive experience in high school level maths such as algebra I, II and pre-calculus.
I believe that there is no such thing as a stupid question and aim to make my students feel confident to ask when they don't understand something. I prefer not to lecture to people, instead to ask them a friendly series of questions to help them arrive at the answer themselves. This is more rewarding for the student and helps them to develop their own thought processes which are essential to being able to solve problems on their own.
