I have previously taught children from disadvantaged backgrounds maths up to and including standard grade(Scottish equivalent of GCSE) level. This took place at a homework club that was partially funded by a grant from Children in Need and was run by a registered charity, the Muslim Women's Association of Edinburgh. As well as this I have helped my younger siblings and fellow classmates, primarily in maths.
Away from tuition I have also spent time as a qualified Place2BE mentor for children from troubled and sometimes dysfunctional backgrounds. Although this wasn't per se academic mentoring it often involved children who were struggling to keep up in class as well as those who were finding it difficult to adapt socially. My role involved discussing any problems that the children were encountering and facilitating them so that they were able to fulfill their true potential, whether that was in the classroom or wider afield.
I am currently an undergraduate first year Law student at University College London (UCL). I attended one of the best schools in Scotland and throughout my time there I was awarded two mathematics scholarships and a scholarship for my GCSE results.
