About me

Hi, I'm Eloise. I'm like to tutor you in GCSE to A-level Maths and Chemistry. I'm currently in my first year at University, studying Chemistry and I'd really like to help others understand the subjects that I like. I think that the best thing about Chemistry and Maths is how we can use it to explain so many things. I'd be happy to help students go back over material that they don't quite understand yet, but I'm also willing to explain other, more in depth things about your chosen subject that may not be covered by your course syllabus.

About my sessions

At the start of each lesson, I will ask the student to explain their understanding of the topic to me and we can then go over the topic together and correct any misunderstandings, as well as discussing real world applications of the topic. After this, we would go over some practice questions together. Depending on the student's learning style, this may be in the form of a game. Following this we would run back through the key points covered and would end the session with some questions for the student to think over that would be discussed at the start of our next session. I feel that leaving the student with questions designed to make them think 'out of the box' will be beneficial as it promotes learning for the sake of learning, not just to pass an exam.

I understand that many students would like to link their tutoring sessions to what they have recently studied in school. As such, if a student would like to go over a recent class test, I'm happy to explain the concepts of any questions that they struggled with. I'm also happy to go into more depth on a subject that may only have been briefly covered in class. To this extent, I would appreciate if I could be told which exam specification the student is studying for - and if there are any particular areas that they have difficulties with - so that I can better tailor their sessions to suit their needs and to find additional resources.

Questions Eloise has answered

Given a right-angled triangle with an angle of 35 degrees and an Opposite side of 12cm, calculate the length of the hypotenuse to 3 significant figures.

First, determine which of SOH-CAH-TOA you need to use. As this question involves the Hypotenuse and the Opposite side, use Sine. As such, write out the equation as: sin(35) = 12/x. (Let x represent the Hypotenuse value). Next, rearrange the equation to: x = 12/sin(35). To do this, multiply both sides of the equation by x and divide both sides by sin(35).Now, input 12/sin(35) into your calculator to give x = 20.9 to 3 significant figures.First, determine which of SOH-CAH-TOA you need to use.

How many Protons, Neutrons and Electrons are there in an atom of Silicon, Si?

Using a copy of the periodic table, look up the Mass and Atomic numbers of Silicon. Mass number = 28; Atomic number = 14. The Atomic number is equivalent to the number of Protons in an atom, so there are 14 Protons present in Silicon. The Mass number is equal to the number of Protons plus the number of Neutrons in an atom, so by subtracting the Atomic number from the Mass number we can determine that there are 28 - 14 = 14 Neutrons in Silicon. In an uncharged atom, the number of Electrons equals the number of Protons, so there are 14 Electrons in an atom of Silicon.Using a copy of the periodic table, look up the Mass and Atomic numbers of Silicon.
