About me

Hi!

I'm Laure-Anne, a second year Chemical Physics student at the University of Glasgow and native French speaker. I have always had a love for sciences, especially how different atoms, molecules and materials interact and react to each other. How matter can change, shaping the world around us is fascinating. Even though my course is intensive, a good study method and giving myself enough time to relax and do the things I love outside of studying has helped me tackle exams with less stress, and more confidence.

My first experience tutoring was helping fellow students in High School study and revise for exams. I really enjoyed sharing study tips, tricks to remember formulas or definitions, etc. I found the experience very rewarding, and my students felt more comfortable in tackling questions once we had worked on the topic together.

This is the passion I want to help younger students develop in their studies. I have always found passionate teachers and lecturers make learning more interesting and more enjoyable, and learning and understanding more about the world around us should always be interesting!

I'm keen to listen to and understand your personal needs, as I know everyone has different areas they find easy and others not so much. I don't believe that you're "not good at x", only that you have not yet got an explanation that makes sense to you.

About my sessions

I would start by talking with you about what areas you want to work on or have more trouble with. There's no point spending all your time on topics you've already mastered! I will also run through a couple of past paper type questions to assess our starting point.

To prepare for tutoring sessions, I will select some exercises in increasing order of difficulty as well as setting some for the student to complete (if they have the time). If the student doesn't have the extra time, we can instead go through some exercises they did not understand from their classes in school. I will also prepare a summary of the theory needed to tackle these exercises and questions.

During the session, I focus more on achievements rather than on what still needs to be improved. Small steps and regularly assessing progress are key to maintaining interest. I would tailor my sessions to the needs of each individual student. At the end of a session, I would tackle a past exam question relating to the topic(s) studied during the session in order to get the student accustomed to what is expected from them for the exam, and remind them of what they are working towards.

Super lovely. Did everything to my own pace. She helped me to understand any vocabulary I didn't understand and helped me to talk without feeling nervous.

So lovely and does everything at my own pace. She makes sure I understand everything before moving on to something else and always writes down words that I may not understand.

Questions Laure-Anne has answered

How do I use completion of the square to solve a quadratic function?

I'll use an example to illustrate this:"find the roots of x2+6x-15"The advantage of completing the square for a quadratic is that it also gives the turning point of the parabola.Here, we're looking to factorize the expression as much as possible.(x+3)(x+3) = x2+6x+9This is close to our function, but not quite there yet!(x+3)2-9-15 = x2+6x-15 Therefore completing the square gives: x2+6x-15 = (x+3)2-24To find the roots of this, solve for x. As we have a square function, we will obtain 2 solutions when solving: one positive, one negative. These 2 solutions are the roots of the quadratic function. Now, for the turning point of the parabola: this is when (x+3)2 is at a minimum, in other words when x= -3. The y value for the minimum is -24.I'll use an example to illustrate this:"find the roots of x2+6x-15"The advantage of completing the square for a quadratic is that it also gives the turning point of the parabola.Here, we're looking to factorize the expression as much as possible.(x+3)(x+3) = x2+6x+9This is close to our function, but not quite there yet!(x+3)2-9-15 = x2+6x-15 Therefore completing the square gives: x2+6x-15 = (x+3)2-24To find the roots of this, solve for x.
