In the Spring term of 2021, I performed two online tutorial-based teaching roles. One was with groups of second year university Statistics students; the other was with groups of Year 11 GCSE Mathematics students. In this essay I aim to compare those experiences and draw out some learnings for PGR teaching practice.

Author Biography

Ian Hamilton, PhD Student, Statistics, University of Warwick

Ian is a father of two (8 and 12) with a longstanding interest in teaching. He has experience of education, as a teacher or a parent, in Uganda, Ecuador, Singapore and the UK. Together these experiences have served to reinforce his sense for the value of good teaching. More recently - having slotted a first career as a Foreign Exchange trader in between - he returned to university to study Statistics, where amongst other things, he is looking at some theoretical aspects of the Comparative Judgement methods being increasingly adopted for assessment in educational settings.
