About me

I am a motivated student studying maths at the University of Cambridge. I have been tutoring maths for a couple years and have learnt to convey information in a coherent way. Having done multiple maths admission tests and understanding how hard they can be to face I would be especially interested in helping people prepare for them.

About my sessions

In the first free meeting I will use the time to get to know the tutee and find out what areas in maths they need help in and how they work best. From here I will structure lessons to best suit the individual and make sure we target areas of weakness as well as helping to build general problem solving ability and confidence.

Questions Ollie has answered

Find the equation of the tangent to the curve x^3+yx^2=1 at the point (1,0).

We can find the gradient of a tangent to a curve at a point by finding dy/dx at x=1.Firstly we can rearrange the equation of the curve for y.(1) yx^2=1-x^3(2)y=x^{-2}-xThen we can differentiate the equation w.r.t x to find dy/dxdy/dx=-2x^{-3}-1At x=1 dy/dx=-2-1=-3To find the equation of a tangent at a point we can use y-y_{1}=m(x-x_{1})Inputting the values into this equation gives(1) y-0=-3(x-1)(2) y=-3x+3Which is the equation of the tangent to the curve at the point (1,0) so we're done.We can find the gradient of a tangent to a curve at a point by finding dy/dx at x=1.Firstly we can rearrange the equation of the curve for y.(1) yx^2=1-x^3(2)y=x^{-2}-xThen we can differentiate the equation w.r.t x to find dy/dxdy/dx=-2x^{-3}-1At x=1 dy/dx=-2-1=-3To find the equation of a tangent at a point we can use y-y_{1}=m(x-x_{1})Inputting the values into this equation gives(1) y-0=-3(x-1)(2) y=-3x+3Which is the equation of the tangent to the curve at the point (1,0) so we're done.
