About my sessions

My Sessions – What I offer:

My main aim is to teach you everything you need to know about your subject. Not only the little snippets of information spread throughout your course, but combining that all together into a fully-fledged understanding of the subject you’re taking. My sessions will be geared towards putting your knowledge into practice in an exam friendly form so you get the grade you deserve!

The sessions will be aimed towards your needs. This can involve taught sessions from whatever part of the syllabus you choose, or simply course-covering tutorials to go over the material you’ve studied in class. I also provide question answering sessions where we can go over past paper questions together – bring along your problems and I’ll be able answer them!

I’ve got Exams coming up soon! – How can you help?

Exams are tricky things, requiring you to understand how to answer the questions rather than just writing down what you know. Learning the exam board can sometimes be just as important as learning the science! I can provide help on how to sit exams as well as what things to watch out for, and the types of things that examiners are looking for in a student. Just let me know the exam board and we can go through some questions together and look at the style of marking involved.

Questions Arthur has answered

Describe the Difference Between ‘Faults’ and ‘Joints’ in Rocks.

Whereas faults have relative movement, joints have no movement. This means that although faults show displacement (such as displaced bedding), joints show no displacement.

Explain how Earthquakes Occur when Stress Stored in Rocks is Released.

Earthquakes occur when the stored stress in the rock exceeds its strength. Energy is released as the rocks fractures and moves in the form of seismic waves. The energy released causes vibrations creating ground movement in the form of an earthquake. After the stress is suddenly released, the ground moves back to its original position following elastic rebound theory.

Explain why the Composition of the Plagioclase Feldspar may vary within an Intrusion.

Ca plagioclase forms early meaning that it settles down through the magma body and forms in the lower part of the intrusion and solidifies. Na rich plagioclase forms later so is only present in the middle and upper parts of the intrusion – the part of the intrusion which solidifies last.
