Degree: Electronic Engineering with Artificial Intelligence (Masters) - Southampton University
Hi, and thanks for checking out my tutor profile! Hi, I'm Pete, I'm happy to help out with any Maths or electronics exam boards up to A-level, or physics up to GCSE. I really enjoy the logical process required for maths and science, which can be broken down into simple steps to provide usually a single definitive answer.
Previously I have worked as an academic peer tutor in my previous sixth form, helping other students out with their then A-level studies, so I already have experience in tutoring to that level (as well as, of course, having already been through the pain of school exams).
Me, myself and I
Here's just a little bit about me so I'm not a complete stranger on a screen. I'm 21 years old and am currently studying an integrated master’s degree in Electronics and Artificial Intelligence at the University of Southampton. This combines large elements of both maths and electronics theories, but also includes a heavy dose of physics at times too. My current interests for my 3rd year project include agent modelling within a computer program to attempt to simulate swarm behaviour within real life biological systems (such as ants building a nest).
In my spare time I enjoy a wide range of activities, particularly outdoor adventure sports such as rock climbing and mountain biking. Outside of the adrenaline junkie field, I also enjoy other hobbies such as dance, yoga and martial arts.
Ultimately, the pace and topic of each of our sessions will be determined by you, as it's only fair that you get to decide what happens with your tutor session. However, I suggest that the way to get the most out of each session is for you to message me with topics you'd like to go over or specific questions you'd like to go through before the session itself. This way, I can prepare useful information for you and we'll be able to get a lot more done within the hour slot.
If you have any questions or would like to arrange a free meet the tutor request, please do not hesitate to get in touch. I will try my best to reply to inquiries on the same day, however if that is not possible, it will be next working day at the latest.
Hope to hear from you soon!

The quotient rule is a formula used to differentiate fractions that contain terms of x in both the numerator and the denominator (we usually refer to this as f(x)/g(x)).
As it isn't possible to differentiate this by normal methods straight away, we use the quotient rule to allow us to do so. For A-level maths, you only need to know how to use the quotient rule, deriving how it is formed is not necessary. The quotient rule takes the following form:
dy/dx = ((g(x)f'(x) - f(x)g'(x))/g(x)^2
Where f'(x), g'(x) are dy/dx of f(x), g(x) respectively. Therefore differentiating the numerator and the denominator seperately, and then plugging these back into the formula, will yield the result of differentiating a fraction of the form f(x)/g(x).see more
