    I'm not sure how to relate
    Accounting work experience, spending a year helping out in a yr7 maths class to an economics personal statement
    A few questions to ask yourself when writing this bit of your personal statement:

    What did the accouting work experience teach you about accounting? - link this to your economics degree accounting module.

    What skills did you take from both experiences?

    You can also mention how teaching other students maths made you sharpen your own mathematical skills.

    Change it from year 7 to year 10 maths students lol
