About me

About Me: I am currently studying Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Durham University. So although I now specialise in humanities and continue to study Maths within Economics, I have simultaneously maintained my knowledge of the sciences and my depth of experience will enable me to help with anything from Physics to Philosophy! I have been tutoring for over 4 years now. And I have practically tutored every age group, covering nearly every subject. I’ve focused at times on the 11 Plus examinations and GCSE Triple Science and Maths. Experience is indispensable when it comes to tutoring and my clear and concise approach to learning has meant that my students have seen their time spent with me pay off with their results! Although I mainly used to tutor face-to-face, since coming to Durham, I have continued to tutor my old students from home through video chats, so again my experience will show.

About my sessions

The Sessions: During the sessions, you will guide what material and subjects we cover and I will adapt to your learning style. A lot can be achieved in an hour, especially if the content is made accessible. Even Maths will seem less scary after a session with me! Firstly, I will aim to solidify your understanding of the syllabus content and after putting your knowledge to the test with some example questions, we can move onto actual past papers. Sessions with me will aim, not only to improve your academic abilities, but also to boost your confidence so you know that when it comes to your exams, you’ll be ready!

Questions Joe has answered

Differentiate with respect to x and write in its simpliest form, Y=(2x-3)/x^2?

Y=(2x-3)/x2

Quotient Rule: dY/dx(u/v)=(u'v-v'u)/v2

dY/dx=(2x2-2x(2x-3))/x4

=(6x-2x2)/x4    (Collect numerator x terms.)

=(6-2x)/x3         (Cancel the fraction by a factor of x.)

dY/dx=(6-2x)/x3

Y=(2x-3)/x2

Quotient Rule: dY/dx(u/v)=(u'v-v'u)/v2

dY/dx=(2x2-2x(2x-3))/x4

=(6x-2x2)/x4    (Collect numerator x terms.)

=(6-2x)/x3         (Cancel the fraction by a factor of x.)

dY/dx=(6-2x)/x3

State and explain two adaptations of a red blood cell?

Red blood cells have a biconcave disk shape, meaning that it increases their surface area and allows for more rapid diffusion of oxygen into and out of the cell.

Red blood cells do not have a nucleus so they can contain more haemoglobin, this is what combines with oxygen to form oxyhaemoglobin and so the fact that red blood cells do not contain a nucleus means that they can maximise their oxygen carrying capacity.

Write a balanced chemical symbol equation for a reaction between Potassium and Water, including state symbols?

2K(s) + 2H2O(l) = 2KOH(aq) + H2(g)

Potassium (K) is a group 1 metal, which is a solid.

Water (H2O) reacts with Potassium to form Potassium Hydroxide (KOH) and Hydrogen (H2).

Hydrogen exists naturally as a diatomic molecule and is usually a gas at room temperature, so it is written as H2(g).
