Degree: Mechanical Design Engineering (Bachelors) - Glasgow University
My name is Cameron and i'm a second year Mechanical Design Engineering Student at the University of Glasgow. I can offer tutoring in maths and physics at National 4/5 (int1/2) and Higher level as well as personal statement help.
I use a range of explanatory techniques in order to get the idea accross to my students clearly. I strongly think that a student teaching a student is one of the most effective methods for learning and for this reason, MyTutorWeb works extremely well. I have patience and williing to help and can tailor my teaching technique to individual students so that they can see the maximum improvement possible. I focus on building up knowledge and true understanding of the topic rather than just memorisation of formulas. This will allow students to tackle even the most obscure problems by using logic and the understanding they have gained. This technique helps build exam confidence and technique.
I can also offer advice on personal statement writing whether this be style, structure, content or anything else.

Factorising is a way of 'converting' an equation into a form with brackets in order to make it more useful and easier to manipulate. It is the reverse of expanding an equation.
To factorise the quadratic x2+5x+6, you need to look for a pair of numbers that multiply to give 6 and at the same time, add up to 5.
In this case, this is 3 and 2.
This means we can factorise and write the equation x2+5x+6 as (x+2)(x+3).see more
