Degree: Product Design Engineering MSc (Masters) - Glasgow University
I am currently studying for my Masters degree in Product Design Engineering at the University of Glasgow and the Glasgow School of Art having graduated with an honours degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Nottingham this summer.
I've always loved studying maths and science and I really hope that I can help you feel the same way.
I will teach you whatever you wish to learn and will do my best to make it fun and easy to follow.
Most sessions will be example and exercise based because with maths and physics I believe that that is the best way to learn. With biology and chemistry the teaching will be more explanatory using diagrams and anaglogies etc..
At lot can be achieved in an hour in one-on-on tutoring and I am sure we will reach your goals quickly and enjoyably!
I'm applying for univeristy, can you help?
Absolutely, I've been through university applications twice and am happy to help any prospective applicants for science or engineering courses!
The next steps...
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. The best way to get to know more about me would be through a 'Meet the Tutor Session' and these are bookable through the website
I look forward to meeting you!

Although these two words can be used interchangably they are very very different. Its easier to explain if you break down their equatoins.
Speed = distance / time
Velocity = displacement / time
The difference between distance and displacement is difficulat to explain but is best described as the following:
Distance is a scalar property that refers to how much ground an oject has covered during its motion.
Displacement is a vector quantity that refers to how far our of place an object is, i.e the objects overall change in position.
The differences in these will become more apparent when studying forces and equations of motion so do not worry if you cannot get your head around the definitions at this instantsee more
Sin(x), Cos(x) and Tan(x) are very useful functions and can be used to solve algerbraic problems where the aim is to find the size of an angle or a size.
Sin(x) = Opposite/Hypotenuse
Cos(x) = Adjacent/Hypotenuse
Tan(x) = Opposite/Adjacent
these are the equations you must rearrange to solve the problems. for example if you're looking to find the length of hypotenuse side and have the angle, x and the length of the adjacent of side you rearrange the equation to be:
This can be confusing at first but can become second nature very quickly if you work through lots of problems.
A great way of remembering the equations is:
