About me

Hi I'm Peter, a 19 year old student from Birmingham going into my second year of studying chemistry at the University of Nottingham. Although I'm studying chemistry I also have a passion for mathematics which is why I also study modules of maths as well. Before I came to university I was a tutor at Explore Learning so I have experience in tutoring. I really enjoyed making a difference and seeing the progress in young people's lives so they can achieve their goals as I achieved mine.

I believe that the key to success is hard work and determination, the exams currently are difficult, there's no beating about the bush but being so fresh out of school I believe I can give your kids the opportunity to be the best they can be.

Thanks for reading and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!

About my sessions

So to start off to get to know you I'd like to ask where you'd like to be in the future e.g. what grades you'd like to achieve, what university you'd like to go to etc. Then we'd do a test to see what your strengths are and to identify the areas that need work on.

After this a usual session would include lots of exam questions as nowadays it's as much learning the exam as it is learning the content. We'd also go over theory and how it's applicable in the real world as this really helped me, especially in A-Level.

A standard tutorial would include going over any material that you're still a little unsure on from the previous session, asking any questions you might have, going over exam questions and discussing homework for the next session. Although this would be my standard tutorial structure I would 100% love to adapt and tailor to your needs.

Questions Peter has answered

Find ∫(2x^5 -4x^-3 +5) dx

So we have to integrate these 3 terms one by one. To integrate 2x5 you add 1 to the power of x, so that becomes 6, you then divide the coefficient by the new power of x. So 3/6=1/2 giving the integral of 2x5 to be 1/2 x6. Similarly, to integrate -4x-3 you add 1 to the power of x, and divide the coefficient by the new power of x giving, 2x-2. To integrate 5, you should picture it as 5x0. So following the pattern of adding one to the power and dividing the coefficient by the new power you get 5x. Finally, you need to always remember adding the integration constant (+C) . This gives the answer to be 1/2 x6 +2x-2 +5x +C.So we have to integrate these 3 terms one by one.
