About me

Hello, I'm Yannick and am currently in my second year of my undergraduate degree of Mathematics, Statistics and Economics at the University of Glasgow. I love my subjects and tutoring Maths is a dream Job, as I get to show everyone else how cool it is!


To get to university meant going the 6th form exams. It is an intense, stressful period for everyone, however I picked up some useful advice along the way. Advice such as revision strategies, time management or simply how best to approach a question in the exam which made a huge difference for me. These tips and tricks would be some of the things I would try and teach you during our sessions on top of providing you with the tools to solve them.

I've been through it all, so I understand all of the struggles involved in understanding new mathematical concepts.


Everyone is told you need to be a genius or have talent to be good in Maths, but I don't believe that one bit. It's a subject like any other, which with good practice and good instruction, anyone can excel at. I'll try my absolute best to teach you not only knowledge, but important skills to have in Mathematics, such as how to tackle new problems, how to learn best, and how to create shortcuts to solve problems faster.

About my sessions

I am here to help you improve. After getting to know your strengths and weaknesses I intent to focus our sessions on areas that require the most attention and tailor each lesson to a specific student. Depending on the course you’re taking, our tutorials will always start off with revising a mathematical concept and making sure you understand it. Then I will help you solve some sample problems that are typical of your qualification, tailoring the questions to you. Then, I will send you a worksheet for you to work on until next time. Even if you do not have time or simply don't manage to solve some questions, we will go over the worksheet briefly in the next lesson.


I'll make sure to explain everything in the simplest way possible, and depending on what kind of a learner you are, teach you in the way that works for you best. I encourage students to test their own knowledge, either by creating problems of their own, or simply learning to ask questions about a certain topic. Sessions exist entirely for the student, and so students should feel free to ask as many questions as they'd like, the more, the better!

Great lesson! Loved the structure and Yannick explains mathematical concepts applied in exercises really well.

Really helpful session! We went through exercises on integration which is a topic I struggle, however Yannick was able to explain in a very clear way.

Questions Yannick has answered

Find the Cartesian equation of plane Π containing the points A(6 , 2 , 1) and B(3, -1, 1) and perpendicular to the plane Π2 (x + 2y - z - 6 = 0).

The information we are given to solve for the equation of the plane are the points A and B, as well as the equation of a plane which lies perpendicular to the plane Π we are solving for.Method 1: Since A and B both lie on the plane Π, the vector AB (-3 , -3 , 0) that connects them will be parallel to the plane Π. The plane Π2 which lies perpendicular to the plane Π has the normal vector (1 , 2 , -1). This vector must also be parallel to the plane Π, as it is the normal vector of a perpendicular plane. To find the Cartesian form of plane Π calculate the cross product between the vector AB and the normal vector of Π2. (-3 , -3 , 0) x (1 , 2 , -1) = (3 , -3 , -3). We now simplify this by dividing by the common factor 3 to find the equation x - y - z = d. To find d plug the co-ordinates of either point A or B into the equation to find d = 3 , hence x - y -z = 3.Method 2:Let plane Π be equal to ax + by + cz = dAs the normal vector to the perpendicular plane is (1 , 2 , -1) we know that:a + 2b - c = 0By plugging points A and B into the equation for Π we know that:6a + 2b + c = d3a - b + c = dWe now have three simultaneous equations with three unknowns, which can be solved for through row reduction to find a = d/3 b = -d/3 c = -d/3a = -b = -cBy assigning an appropriate value to any of the unknowns findx - y - z = 3 or an equivalent expression.The information we are given to solve for the equation of the plane are the points A and B, as well as the equation of a plane which lies perpendicular to the plane Π we are solving for.Method 1: Since A and B both lie on the plane Π, the vector AB (-3 , -3 , 0) that connects them will be parallel to the plane Π.
