Looking for a Maths Tutor?

Software Engineer Becca Madden (LEH 2005-2012) is offering her expert services as a Maths Tutor for GCSE and A level students, to help fund her post-graduate studies.

Becca, who has an A* in both Maths A level and GCSE, an A in Further Maths A level, and a First Class Masters Degree in Aeronautical Engineering from Durham University, recently gave up her job in engineering and software development at Jaguar Land Rover to pursue her dreams of becoming a classical and opera singer.

When she was student at LEH, Becca excelled in both music and sciences, and when she left had to make a difficult choice between head and heart about which career path to pursue.  She chose science and engineering, and has excelled in her career, taking part in STEM ambassador outreach programmes and running after-school STEM clubs, as well as acting as a judge in competitions and as a mentor to school teams.  She also set up and ran a Girls Who Code Club at her local library, as well as working as a maths tutor.

“But it had always been my childhood dream to be a professional singer one day,” says Becca, who has now decided the time is right to give it her best shot.  This term she started at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance as a postgraduate student in Vocal Performance.

To help fund her studies, she has decided to restart her math tutoring, offering online lessons to students who might require a bit of additional support following lockdown. “I would love to help those who need it,” says Becca, who gives hour-long lessons using online tools such as Teams or Google Hangouts.

“I take an example led approach to tutoring, working with the student through example questions to aid understanding and identify any areas of improvement,” she explains.  “In a first session, I will ask the student about their self-identified strengths and weaknesses and go through a recent piece of work with them.  From here, I will work with the student to create a plan of tuition that will cover all of their requirements and improve their overall subject level and exam performance.”
