About me

About me

Hello! I am Lizzy and I am a student currently reading Maths, Physics and Computer Science at St Mary's College, Durham University. You may notice that I am studying quite a broad degree at the moment and this enables me to tutor a wide variety of subjects. Currently I am looking to tutor in:

Maths [GCSE (OCR) & A – Level(Edexcel)]

Physics [GCSE (OCR) & A- Level(OCR B)]

Computer Science [GCSE & A-Level]

German [GCSE (Edexcel)]

I have put the respective exam board I studied under next to the level I took it at but this doesn’t mean that I am solely limited to this exam board!

Although I have not sat the formal Computer Science exams, I feel this gives me flexibility to read up on the specification of the exam your child is sitting, so I can tailor the time we have together more effectively.

I have had some really great teachers in the past, who have taught me not only taught me my subject, but also shown me some new teaching methods I am keen to try in my tutoring. I am considering a career in academia and possibly teaching- I am really passionate about help your child to study in the most effective way for them.

A little about the sessions

The most important feature of my sessions is that your child shall pick the topic we will study. Normally next week’s topic will be decided on at the end of the tutorial. I find this often means recalling information over a longer time period which aids long term memory of the subject.

The sessions start with recalling information about the topic, this could be formulae or key concepts.

Next we will work on problem solving or how to attack different types of problems we may see in the exams.

Then we will go through a few problems together where I will set the question, get your child to talk me through their thinking as they do the question and provide prompts along the way to work towards a solution.

Where possible I will try to provide your child with relevant resources to aid their learning.

While this all sounds very heavy and boring, I will also try to add a little fun into the sessions with songs or strange analogies to show you how interesting my subjects can really be!

If you can think of any questions or would like to book a session, send me a WebMail or book a session to meet me!

I hope to see you soon!

Questions Elizabeth has answered

A stationary observer Bob, observes Alice take 5 seconds to travel from point A to B at 0.95c. How much time does Alice measure the journey from A to B to take?

This question is all about the application of Special Relativity.  In order to solve this problem we need to identify that the correct equation to use here is: t= (gamma factor)t0 Where t is the time observed by Bob, t0 is the time observed by Alice and the gamma factor = 1/Sqrt(1-(v2/c2) W...

This question is all about the application of Special Relativity. 

In order to solve this problem we need to identify that the correct equation to use here is:

t= (gamma factor)t0

Where t is the time observed by Bob, t0 is the time observed by Alice and the gamma factor = 1/Sqrt(1-(v2/c2)

We need to rearrange the equation for t0, giving 

t0=t/(gamma factor) 

t0= t(Sqrt(1-(v2/c2))

Subsituting t =5 s, v = 0.95c, we obtain:

t0=(5 s)(Sqrt(1-0.952))

t0 = 1.56 s
