About me

 I am a third year chemistry student at the University of Bristol and along with my love for Chemistry I am also incredibly interested in Maths and Biology, enjoying studying both of them at A level. By tutoring that I hope I can pass on my love to other students.I have experience tutoring Biology, Chemistry and Maths on numerous exam boards and of varying abilitites as well as different learning styles. Furthermore I am incredibly interested in science education and have just completed an internship at a science education technology start up!

I am really friendly and easy going; I will treat you more like a peer than a teacher, I think this will cause a more relaxed and informal tutorial which I think is incredibly beneficial for the learning of the student.

About my sessions

During each session you will lead the topics you want to discuss or questions you want to go through. We will start with going through explanations of concepts, where I will try to be as visual as possible to aid understanding, and then go onto questions and exam practice.  I am very open for feedback and  for suggestions on how a tutorial can be suited to you so that you can get the most out of the session and most importantly for it to be enjoyable.  Any questions do not hesitate to ask, I look forward to hearing from you!

Questions Rowan has answered

Differentiate y=x/sin(x)

This equation has one function of x divided by another function of x, we therefore have to use the quotient rule and is written in the form f(x)/g(x). 

The quotient rule is therefore

f'(x)g(x)-g'(x)f(x)/g2(x)

The first step would be to differentiate f(x) and g(x). 

f'(x)=1 g'(x)=cos(x)

The numerator of this fraction would therefore be 

1*sin(x)-xcos(x) =sin(x)-xcos(x)

To calculate the denominator you simply square g(x)

g2(x)= sin2(x)

So the answer would be sin(x)-xcos(x)/sin2(x)

How will the position of equilibrium shift for an endothermic reaction when heated?

The position of equilibrium will shift to the right, favouring the forward reaction, to oppose the increase in temperature. Endothermic reactions absorb heat and therefore if the endothermic reaction is more prevalent heat will be absorbed and the temperature will decrease.

What causes bacteria to become antibiotic resistant?

Mutations, which is a change in the base code of DNA, occur regularly and can have various affects on organisms. Some mutations may give the bacteria an advantage against an antibiotic, for example if the target site for the antibiotic was altered then the antibiotic may be less able to bind, so has less of an effect on the bacteria. This means the bacteria with this mutation have an advantage and natural selection occurs when an antibiotic is applied to the culture of bacteria so that the resistant bacteria survive and therefore can reproduce with less competition and pass on their antibiotic resistant mutation.
