Jonny is a 5 star tutor and has gone out of his way to help us at times when things haven't gone quite to plan. His knowledge, patience and delivery of problem solving is excellent. I totally recommend Jonny from our experience of him a my son's math's tutor. Thanks Jonny!

Robert has been an amazing teacher for the last month or so (maybe more, i can't remember because time flies when you're having fun in French). He has helped me prepare for my GCSEs and has taught me loads of French (which is a useful thing to know in a French exam). He has made lessons both useful and fun, as he is very funny but also very good at explaining. So if you're looking for a French tutor, Robert's your guy.

Why limit yourself to someone who lives nearby, when you can choose from tutors across the UK?

By removing time spent travelling, you make tuition more convenient, flexible and affordable

We've combined live video with a shared whiteboard, so you can work through problems together

All your Online Lessons are recorded. Make the most out of your live session, then play it back after

Usually we cover both subject knowledge and exam technique, although that can change depending on each individual student. Then we go through diagrams, and they ask questions, and we go from there.

Lots of students say that the classes are too big in school, or that they don't have time to ask teachers after Online Lessons. In my Online Lessons, we take time to explore things in a little in a bit more detail.

I always look up the board my students are taking so the Online Lessons are really relevant. Then we go through past papers or set texts, whatever the student finds helpful.

I use the shared whiteboard. We make diagrams together and label them, and often the student prints it off because they know it's right and they completely understand it.

After tutoring one girl went and told all her friends the new explanation I gave her. And she was so excited about what she wrote in the exam she emailed me immediately afterwards.

There was one girl who had her exam on Monday. She wanted tuition on Friday, Saturday and Sunday beforehand. It was very intense, but she said the exam went well.

Rewrite *(x − 4)(2x + 3y)*^{2} as (x - 4)(2x + 3y)(2x + 3y)

Multiply out the first two brackets to give -(2x^{2 }+ 3xy - 8x^{2} - 12y)(2x + 3y)

Multiply out the remaining brackets4x^{3 }+ 6x^{2}y - 16x^{2 }- 24xy + 24xy + 6x^{2}y + 9xy^{2} - 24xy - 36y^{2}

Simply what's left...**4x**^{2}** + 12x**^{2}**y + 9xy**^{2}** – 16x**^{2}** – 48xy – 36y**^{2}

Therefore...(x − 4)(2x + 3y)^{2} = 4x^{2} + 12x^{2}y + 9xy^{2} – 16x^{2} – 48xy – 36y^{2}

Multiply out the first two brackets to give -(2x

Multiply out the remaining brackets4x

Simply what's left...

Therefore...(x − 4)(2x + 3y)

Label equations: (a) 3x+4y=18(b) 4x+2y=14We need to be able to cancel out either the x's or the y's. The simplest choice is to double (b) so that we can cancel out the y's.2 x (b) : 8x+4y=28 (Give this a new label, (c))

Cancel out the y's by subtracting (a) from (c), (we could do this the other way round but makes sense to take away the smaller numbers as this keeps the equation positive)So we have (c)-(a):8x+4y=28-(3x+4y=18)Which leaves 5x=10 (the y's have cancelled out). Then, dividing both sides by 5, we have x=2.

We are not quite done yet, we still need to find out what y is. We do this by substituting our value for x into our original equations. Substituting x=2 into (a) gives:6+4y=184y=12y=3

Always check this answer with the other equation (b). Substituting x=2 into (b) gives:8+2y=142y=6y=3 Great! Same answer. So x=2 and y=3.

First we need to rearrange both equations into the form ax + by = c (where a, b and c are the integers). We can label these 1. and 2.We then have:3x + 2y = 12 1.7x -10y = -16 2.

In order to find the x value, we need to get rid of the ys. This can be done by multiplying the first equation by 5. This gives us 15x + 10y = 60. 3. We can now easily work with equations 2. and 3. as the y values have the same coefficients.

15x + 10y = 60 3.7x - 10y = -16 2.

In order to get rid of the y values, we need to add the two equations together (because 10y + (-10y) = 0 )This leaves us with:22x = 44x = 2

We can now substitute x = 2 back into equation 1. to find y

(3 x 2) + 2y = 122y = 6y =3

Just to be sure, substitute x and y into equation 2.

(7 x 2) - (10 x 3) does equal -16. Therefore, the solutions are x= 2 and y=3

Tackling a question - especially in a high-pressured exam environment - it can be very helpful if you start with a structure and plan; and then use this to arrange your knowledge of a topic as it 'pops into your head.'

-- Intro: Quickly outline the terms of the agreements at Yalta and Potsdam; and those which Stalin didn't abide by. This will instantly show the examiner you are confident with the syllabus. And will help you think of why/why not this wouldn't have caused the cold war - and help jog your memory of any causes you might have forgotten. Outline these competing causes (for best marks, show how one cause makes another less important). Then give one sentence of what you are going to argue. For top marks think about different ways to elevate and relegate different causes.

E.g.**Trigger factors **(factors which were necessary in the short-term but only mattered because of larger long-term factors)

-- Main Body: Three paragraphs. In your plan make sure you have written down your**beginning and concluding sentences. **These should streamline your argument and make sure you are always evaluating (crucial for top marks).

E.g.**Para 1 Beginning**: Stalin's failure to abide by agreements breached trust between the Western and Eastern allies, making future diplomatic cooperation harder and a Cold War more likely. **Para 1 Ending**: As such Stalin's failure to abide by agreements was an important cause of the Cold War. **Para 2 Beginning: **However, the Western Allies' aggression also contributed to the cold war; indeed, Stalin would have abided by his agreements if the Allies hadn't offered Marshall Aid money to Eastern European countries. **Para 2 Ending: **As such, Western aggression reduced trust between America and Russia; and encouraged Stalin to go back on his agreements. It is therefore a **more important **factor in the cause of the cold war.

-- Conclusion: 'To conclude, there were multiple factors which caused the cold war.**Here explain how they interrelate. But cause 1 and 2 would not have mattered or even happened if it were not for previous allied aggression. **As such, Stalin's failure to abide by agreements was only one of a number of other **secondary causes. **
