Lovkush Tutoring Profile
A teaching fellow and qualified teacher with a PhD in Pure Mathematics from Leeds
I am a Teaching Fellow at the University of Leicester, teaching mathematics to Foundation Year students. In addition to that, I have been doing online private tuition for over five years, and have helped over 30 students achieve their goals at a variety of levels: sixth form, undergraduate (first, second and third year) and masters students.
There are three main ways that I help my students. The first is that I focus on developing a genuine understanding of the concepts from which one can construct an answer for themselves, as opposed to learning procedures by rote.
The second is that I make use of the online assessment tool Numbas, which allows a student to have unlimited practice on the core mathematical skills.
The third is that I am a quick learner and thus am able to teach topics I never knew before. A key example of this is a previous student I helped via TheProfs. They were a Masters Economics student at the University of Warwick and needed help with their statistics module. Using the lecture notes and examples they provided, I digested the material in a few days and then presented it to them in a way they could understand. The result was that they comfortably passed their exams, which they were otherwise on track to failing.
