We’re so happy that you’re applying to work with the Oxbridge Formula.
Great teaching is at the heart of everything we do, and for that reason, we’d love you to show us what great teaching looks like to you.
And there’s no better way for us to see this than to have you create a video for us!
Here’s your task (please create video solutions to the questions relevant to the admissions tests/subjects you hope to teach for!):
What we’re asking for
If you’d like to teach STEP or MAT or help with Maths Interview Prep:
Please could you create a short 8-10 minute video explaining the following problem? (The time limit is there to see how concisely yet fully you can explain the problem.)
Q4 STEP 1 2001
If you’d like to teach CTMUA or CSAT or help with Computer Science Interview Prep:
Please could you create a short 8-10 minute video explaining the following problem?
(Question coming soon)
If you’d like to teach PAT, ENGAA or NSAA or help with Physics / Engineering / Physical NatSci Interview Prep:
Please could you create a short 8-10 minute video explaining the following problem from PAT 2018?
If you’d like to teach Economics or help with Economics and Management / PPE / Economics Interviews:
Please could you create a short 8-10 minute video explaining how you would tackle the following essay question from ECAA 2019? I.e. a video essay plan.
It is on page 37 of this document.
Creating a Video
This needn’t be an extremely polished video, and we aren’t interested in the editing of it. It can simply be recorded on a laptop or smartphone.
We are, however, interested in seeing your:
a) personality and enthusiasm
b) ability to explain
c) ability to simplify a tricky concept
d) ability to create and communicate a method that will save time during the exam
e) subject knowledge
We are not expecting your video to take you forever to make or be perfect, as we know you could still have work and revision to do. If you make a mistake, you can simply say “sorry, I meant to say…” and correct yourself.
If possible, it would be a bonus to have you in the video for a small part of it, as this can help to show your personality.
Sharing the video with us
Please upload you video to Google Drive and put the shareable link to it in the application form on Tutorcruncher.
– Use a piece of paper, whiteboard or online whiteboard, to draw, underline, etc.
– We recommend the use of rhetorical questions such as “So, how should we go about doing this?” to make the viewer feel involved.
– At every stage, try not to give away the answer without first giving a hint so students can attempt that part themselves
– When explaining how you would tackle the question, explain all of your thought processes.
We’re really looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
