About me

About Me:

I am a student of Chemistry at the University of York studying for a masters degree and am a self-confessed science nerd! My goal is to give you the help you need, build your confidence and push you to be the best you can. All while keeping the subject fascinating and enjoyable, to hopefully show some of you that

I am a patient and friendly person who has been through school sometimes needing a slightly different explanation to make things click and I believe that is what makes me unique. I word things carefully and do my best to make them simple so that instead of just understanding, you gain the confidence and practise to never get it wrong.

I have previously taught singing and performed musically around the world, I also volunteer my time often and participate in a lot of sports like badminton and squash.

The Sessions:

During the sessions, you have control of what we study. In maths and chemistry basic understanding is key, so before we do exam questions, we will focus on this and take the time you need to feel confident. By the time we look at a range of exam questions you will be able to explain the answers to me and when you can do that, you will be set for the next topic. I will briefly go over previous topics during sessions, so that you are always looking at the bigger picture and keep at the highest level.

I hope the sessions will be fun! A lot can be achieved in 55mins especially if it is made enjoyable – maths and chemistry are amazing and while you may sit in lessons wondering how things are useful in the real world, I will always do my best to give real examples to inspire your mind!

Fancy a taster?

If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website). Remember to tell me your exam board and what you're struggling with.

I look forward to meeting you and promise you will get the best tutor experience by putting your trust in me!

There are many ways to solve quadratic equations including completing the square, factorisation and using the quadratic equation.

Factorisation involves breaking the quadratic equation into two sets of brackets that when multiplied together, give the quadratic equation. For the general case without a coefficient x2+bx+c=0, the key to this is finding two numbers that add to make b and also multiply together to make c. Then you can put these numbers into the general brackets (x+c)(x+d) where c and d can be positive or negative.

You can then check this answer by using another method of solving, or by substituting the numbers into the original quadratic and both should give an answer of 0.
