Aerospace engineering student offering maths, science, and english tutoring up to A level in Bath

Methodology

I like to take a guiding approach, whereby I point the student in the correct direction and help them to work out the answer using as much of their own ability as possible. Failing this, I believe that demonstration and a cooperative attempt at a worked example, followed by having the student repeat the process afterwards whilst explaining it back to me, is the most effective way of encouraging learning. I like to employ methods of teaching with a strong foundation of evidence for their efficacy.

Background

I am an Aerospace Engineering student at the University of Bath, about to enter my Master's degree. I have an in-depth knowledge of maths, physics, and engineering as a result of my studies. Outside of my degree I am also very engaged with other sciences, and have continued to study them in my spare time. Furthermore, I greatly enjoy literature and langauge, and am well read and articulate.

Nick's resume

Nick Daggitt

Education
University of Bath 2015 – 2020
MEng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering
Studying modules in maths, statics and dynamics, thermodynamics, design and materials, modelling techniques, aerodynamics, and practical engineering skills
Magdalen College School 2008 - 2015
A Levels: Maths, Further Maths, Physics, and Biology (A*, A* A*, A respectively)
10 GCSEs: 8 A* and 2 A grades
Engineering projects and skills 2015 - 2016
Group and solo design projects at university have strengthened my knowledge of design principles and project management, as well as cooperative design work and organisation. These projects included concept ideation, analysis, and down-selection, along with clear presentation to and criticism from industry experts and university supervisors. Most recently, I am involved in a project to design an electric passenger aircraft capable of making short hops between islands with 10 or so passengers.
During these projects I gained certain practical skills such as operating a lathe, and milling, to create parts for these projects, as well as creating components in computer aided design programs.
In my own time I have also completed various woodworking and design projects, such as building a rowing machine for myself using bicycle parts and wooden beams, and a small trebuchet that came first in a contest to launch a projectile the greatest distance. I have also worked with my father in performing maintenance on a vintage sports car.
Employment History
Botnar Research Centre, Work experience August 2013
Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology, Musculoskeletal Sciences (NDORMS).
• I used 3D modelling programs in conjunction with CAT scan data to construct 3D models of hip and knee joints. I identified the relative position and orientation of knee replacement components in post-surgery X-rays in order to assess error rates.
• Attended lectures on bionic limb prostheses, nano-materials, and methods for aiding tendon regrowth, as well as spending time in the microscopy lab.
Oxitec, Work experience July 2013
• I worked in a lab growing genetically modified mosquitoes designed to reduce breeding populations in the wild to combat dengue fever. This involved separating male and female mosquito pupae and counting each batch.
• I used microscopes and fluorescent markers to identify larvae that had successfully taken up the desired gene, as well as making growth mediums to grow the larvae in.
Global Water Intelligence, Researcher July-September 2016
• I collected information on candidates for a publication “Who’s Who in MENAT Renewables?”
• This involved making telephone calls to CEOs and high-level executives of renewable energy companies around the world, and conducting interviews and email correspondence with executives, PR departments, and PAs. Wrote personal profiles for these executives for a high-quality publication.
Satellite Applications Catapult, Space Technology Business Analyst June 2017 – June 2018
• I performed market research in the small satellite industry and built and maintained a database of satellite launches which was used to inform market intelligence reports that I produced. These were published and widely read within the industry, generating much spontaneous positive feedback from readers.
• I supported small and medium enterprises in the space industry by providing industry insight and performing targeted research (both desk research and personally communicating with experts).
• I took a high position of responsibility in the internal social structure of the Catapult, making me responsible for welcoming and orienting new recruits, organising social events, and ensuring that the open culture of the Catapult was perpetuated.
Computing Skills
I am experienced in a variety of software packages, including Microsoft Office (with capability to program macros using VBA), as well as Adobe Photoshop, data representation and manipulation tools such as MATLAB, and 3D modelling with computer-aided design software (Blender, Solid Edge, and Autodesk Inventor)
Positions of Responsibility
Rowing - Coxing the school rowing team at national level events, using leadership, organisation, and motivation skills.
Volunteering –
• Running a school film club alongside my studies demonstrates my organisational and time management skills.
• Helping a local primary school in teaching arithmetic, literacy, and taking groups of children to the local library.
• Running small local videogame tournaments on a weekly basis.

Additional Skills and Interests
I am a keen sportsman and I am proficient in badminton, cycling, horse-riding, skiing, and rowing. My hobbies include drawing and painting, and I have sold artworks.
Over the first year of sixth form, I completed an extended project on space travel. I was selected as one of the top 15 to be presented in a 20-minute speech to an audience of parents, teachers, pupils, and some university affiliates.
I hold a full, clean UK driving licence.
