About me

I am a Physics graduate who is passionate about science and science education. Our ability to understand the universe around us amazes me every day. I love doing outreach events to connect with young people and hearing their passions for the sciences. Some students however lack confidence, and I love finding out why and helping reassure them that science can be for them. For many schools, their Physics teacher is not a specialist with a Physics degree. I have seen how initiatives supplementing Physics teaching have helped students succeed in Physics. Science is for everyone, and I hope that I can help science work for you.

About my sessions

The best way to learn Maths and Physics is by doing. After I receive your exam board and a list of topics, I will prepare a set of questions for our session. We will complete them in the structure of "I do, we do, you do" to build up your confidence solving problems. As our sessions progress, I will introduce warm up questions on previous topics, so we can assess your knowledge retention, strengths and weaknesses. With this information, I will be able to personalise your exam revision.

Questions Karina has answered

How do I deal with parametric equations? x = 4 cos ( t + pi/6), y = 2 sin t, Show that x + y = 2sqrt(3) cos t.

Note: I have a screenshot of the question that I should be able to add to the work space. Q5 C4 June 2014 Edexcel.x + y = 2sqrt(3) cos tStart with x = 4 cos ( t + pi/6) and the trig identity cos(A + B) = cosAcosB - sinAsinBx = 4(cos(t)cos(pi/6) - sin(t)sin(pi/6))Ideally you should be able to recognise cos(pi/6) = sqrt(3)/2 and sin(pi/6)=1/2, but your calculator should give you this in surd form where appropriate, although you can try dividing answers by sqrt(2) and sqrt(3).x= 4((sqrt(3)/2)*cos(t) - sin(t)/2) = 2sqrt(3)*cos(t) - 2 sin(t)Notice the latter is y.x = 2sqrt(3)*cos(t) - y. Therefore x + y = 2sqrt(3).Note: I have a screenshot of the question that I should be able to add to the work space.
