Tutoring children in mathematics and verbal reasoning for the 11+ entrance exam. This involves time planning, and preparing work in advance of the lesson in-between school time. It also teaches me to communicate with people of all ages, whether it be students or their parents, when giving them a progress report.
-From June 2010 to present
Kumon institute of education: Maths tutor – I had to teach children basic maths and helping with 11+ preparations as well as marking exam scripts.
-From Sep 2010 to Aug 2011
Sales Assistant at Boots Pharmacy LTD – involving restocking and customer servicing.
-From June 2010 to July 2010
2nd place in the county for the Senior Team Maths Challenge. Working as a team of four, we had to solve complex maths problems as part of a national competition.
1st place in Rampaging Chariots football competition – involved building and programming a remote controlled robot from scratch and using it to play competitive football with other robots.
18th place (out of 750) in IET Formula24 Race – involved building and maintaining a car and acting as pit crew with 4 others. We reached the national finals.
Interests and Activities:
I enjoy learning and developing my skills in tech and engineering, having been involved in tech projects throughout my school career. Outside of my academic interests, I also enjoy sports, in particular cricket and football. I often play recreational badminton as I find it very stimulating and stress relieving.
I am a highly motivated, and committed, student with a passion for Maths. I have experience in working with other people and independently. I love working towards a reward and always love learning new things. I have a strong worth ethic and I am diligent. I work well under pressure and can always deliver when required. I have sufficient knowledge in CAD a variety of programmes including Google Sketchup and 2D-Design. I have learnt this myself, and have had some experience with them. I have also picked up programming again. This is mainly in Python, and in JAVA.

Here we have a product of two things, so we will be using the product rule of differentiation. This is: for y=u(x)v(x), where u(x) and v(x) are funtions of x, dy/dx = u'(x)v(x) + u(x)v'(x). So in this case let u(x) = 3x+cos(x) and let v(x) = 2+4sin(3x). We need to find u'(x). u'(x) = 3-sin(x) as we differentiate u(x). v'(x) = 12cos(3x) as we diferentiate v(x). Then using the product rule sated, dy/dx = (3-sin(x))(2+4sin(3x)) + (3x+cos(x))(12cos(3x)).see more
