Hi, my name is **Hayden**.

I am finishing off my Masters in Physics at The University of Warwick and having a great time. What I will hopefully be able to convey to tutees is the satisfaction when you can solve a problem just with some **scribbles and applied thinking**.

If you find your study **boring** or **dull** I will go out of my way to show you how **whatever you're learning is used to do something cool**. We can set up tightropes with trigonometry or design rollercoasters with differentiation, promise.

**Still not convinced?** Book a free '**meet the tutor**' session with me to get a feel for my personality and teaching style. I look forward to meeting with you, thanks!

I'm a pretty relaxed and patient person who is a big believer in **practice makes perfect**,** **especially with maths. If you tend to get frustrated at yourself for not understanding things: you are **not alone** and we can just work at it until the penny drops. This means a lot of practicing of questions.

My tutoring style utilises a lot of **analogies** because science can be very confusing with unncecessary long words and terms so I find it important to show that **the underlying concepts of science are straightforward** and I can prove it to you. It's nto necessary to just memorise for an exam, it helps so much to understand **why** something works, and that's how I hope to teach.

As for what you want to be taught: **that's up to you**. Exam questions, lesson-like explanations of theory, helping you work through some homework - you decide and **I'll do my best to help**.

We can work to a schedule towards a goal and I find that it works best when we **integrate the tutorials with school lessons** and **use mock papers** to assess progress.

We only take tutor applications from candidates who are studying at the UK’s leading universities. Candidates who fulfil our grade criteria then pass to the interview stage, where a member of the MyTutor team will personally assess them for subject knowledge, communication skills and general tutoring approach. About 1 in 7 becomes a tutor on our site.

To simplify a surd, remember that

**sqrt(a*b) = sqrt(a)*sqrt(b)**

If either a or b are square numbers, you can simply write its square root. Hence, to simplify a surd, you must look for any factors of the number inside the square root that are sqaure numbers.

For example,

**sqrt(20) = sqrt(4*5) = sqrt(4)*sqrt(5)**

**sqrt(4) = 2** therefore **sqrt(20) = 2sqrt(5)**

If a set of equations has more unknowns than equations, you cannot get a value for each unknown. However, you can find the relationships between the variables.

Start by rearranging one variable in terms of the others and then plug that equation into the others, eliminating one variable. You will then be able to link the rest of the variables together in terms of each other.

Finally, set one variable as a parameter, say **u**, and give the values of all the variable in terms of that uniting parameter.

For example, you will end up with something like:

**x = 2u - 1**

**y = 1/2u + 4**

**z = u**

For all quadratic equations, you can use the **quadratic formula**. Given an equation of the form **ax ^{2}+bx+c**, you can plug those values into this formula:

**x _{1}, x_{2 }= (-b +/- sqrt(b^{2 }- 4ac)) / 2a**

Note: the term **b ^{2 }- 4ac **is called the
