About me

About Me:

I am currently a mathematics student studying at the University of Nottingham. I have always enjoyed a certain amount of logical thinking behind my work, which is why maths is the perfect outlet!

Although I struggled to decide my degree choice at the end of my AS-levels, I couldn't be happier with the decision I made. I have been tutoring 3 GCSE level students maths for almost a year now, and have seen great improvement! I'm relaxed with my teaching and flexible with my time.

How will the sessions go?

Whether its basic techniques or exam preparation, I can help you! Although basic understanding is assumed, I know that concepts can be hard to grasp - I've been there before!

I will need to know what exam board you are studying from, and what specific topics you wish to go over in the lesson, to give to me time to prepare.

Any other questions?

Questions Toby has answered

How do you find an angle in a right-angled triangle when you are given two of its side's lengths?

You must first identify the names of the two sides in relation to the angle you are trying to find out. The technique "sohcahtoa" is generally very helpful in working this out. This abbreviation stands for:

Sine=Opposite/Hypotenuse

Cosine=Adjacent/Hypotenuse

Tangent=Opposite/Adjacent

Then to find the angle, you simply use the inverse of the function you have found you needed (found on your calculator) on the fraction and it should come out with the answer.

How do you work out the length of one of the sides of a right-angled triangle given the other two?

You must first identify which sides you are given. If you have been given both sides which are not the hypotenuse (the longest side opposite the ninety degree angle) then you can use the equation:

a^2 + b^2 = c^2

where a and b are the lenghts of the two sides you are given and c is the length of the hypotenuse. If you have been given one length and the hypotenuse then you simply rearrange the equation to a^2 = c^2 - b^2 where c is the hypotenuse and b is the other known side.
