Degree: Aerospace Engineering (MEng) (Masters) - Bristol University
I'm a third year Aerospace Engineering student at the University of Bristol. During school I was part of a mentoring scheme for younger students and since completing my A-Levels I've taken up regular one-to-one tutoring in Maths.
Whether it's understanding the key concepts or preparing for an upcoming exam, I'll use a variety of different techniques to help you become confident in the subject area, using frequent examples to back-up the theory. I believe the key to successful tutoring is letting the student decide what topics they wish to cover in the session, based on what they feel least confident in.
I am flexible across all the major exam boards (AQA, Edexcel, OCR etc) and have experience tutoring the iGCSE courses as well.
If you're interested, please get in touch to arrange a free meet-the-tutor session!
Thanks, Patrick :)

The quadratic formula is a way of solving quadratic equations of the form: ax2+bx+c=0. By plugging in the values a,b and c into it, the solutions for x can be obtained:
x = [-b +/- sqrt(b2-4ac)]/2a
For example, solving 2x2+3x-5=0:
a = 2, b = 3, c = -5 so inputting these values into the formula above:
x = [-3 +/- sqrt(32-4(2*-5)]/(2*2)
x = 1 or x = -5/2
These can be checked by inserting them into the original equation, or using a graphical method looking at the x-intercept coordinates.see more
