Degree: Philosophy, Politics and Economics (Bachelors) - Durham University
My name is Susanne Karbe, I am from Gemrany, and I am currently studying PPE (Philosophy, Politics and Economics) at Durham University. In school Math and French were two of my favorite subjects. I lived in Paris for 5 years, which is where I came to love the french language.
I am friendly and patient. I have experience working with other people, and have already tutored in the past. In Germany I regularly tutored 2 tutees in English, French and Math.
The sessions are here to help you, so you will guide what we cover. If there are particular things you want to discuss, we will discuss these. Especially in Math understanding is incredibly important, so before going through possible exam questions, we will make sure you understand what we covered, until you are able to explain it to me. In order to make the sessions efficient, you will have to tell me the topics you are dealing with at the moment, and what you're struggling with.
I hope the sessions will be fun! Although especially Math can seem boring, it is actually really great, especially if you understand what you're doing!
If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session' (both accessible through this website).
When you differentiate, the constant disappears, because it is not dependent of the variable. So when you integrate, you have to add the constant again. However, you can't know the vaulue of c without being further information.
When you integrate with limits, for example x^2+x with the limits of 1 and 4. Integration: 1/3x^3+0,5x^2 + c.
with limits: 1/3(4)^3 + 0,5(4)^2 + c - 1/3(1)^3 + 0,5(1)^2 + c --> c-c --> the c disappears.
E.g you have 2 equations and have to set them equal to each other.
2x + 3y = 6
-3x + y = 2
multiply first equation by 3, second by 2 to get
6 x + 9y = 18
-6 x + 2y = 4
11 y = 22
y = 2
-6x + 2(2) = 4
-6x = 0
x = 0see more
The subjunctive is a tricky part of the french language, one that often confuses students.
There are several cases in which it is used:
- when you express a desire, a will, an order (e.g. Je veux que tu...). But NOT after espérer
- when you have to do something, so for example express something with the phrase "il faut que"
- To express a possibility, uncertainty or doubt (e.g. Je ne suis pas sure..., c'est possible que...)
- after certain impersonal expressions (e.g. Il est important que..., il est logique que..., il est possible que...)
- after certain conjunctions (e.g. pour que, afin que)
- to express a negated opinion (e.g. je ne crois pas que + Subjonctif, BUT Je crois que + Indicatif, je ne trouve pas que + subjonctif, BUT je trouve que + Indicatif)see more
