About me

About me
I am a Computer Science student at University College London. I have a passion for math and sciences and I look forward to help out with any of these areas. In high school, I completed the International Baccalaureate programme, so if you are in the same situation right now I understand how stressful this programme can be and hope my sessions will be as helpful as possible.

How will a tutoring session be?
What we cover in the sessions will be entirely up to you. You can either ask me to explain any particular concepts you are not familiar with and after explaining I will aim to give you some sample questions to ensure you have really understood. On the other hand, you can also come with specific problems you need help with (such as any past paper questions) and I can help you improve your understanding of the concept as we go through the problem.  I will try to use different ways of explaining to find which one is the most suitable for you. I will also try to prepare you for the final exams, giving you tips to better understand the problems and how to answer them to get the top marks.

What next?  
If you have any other questions, send me a message or book a free meeting!  I look forward to meeting you!

About my sessions

Tutorial Structure
I adapt my tutorials to what works best for each student, be it mainly focusing on practice exercises and explaining as questions come up or through an initial lesson followed by exam exercises to help students achieve their desired results. 

Throughout my 2 years of tutoring with MyTutor, I have noticed many students like tutorials to be in the following structure:
1: Introduction - Recap of previous lessons and introduction to the material to be covered in the current lesson.
2: Tutorial - Go over the area chosen by the student through a mix of theory, diagrams, examples. Don't hesitate to ask questions :)
3: Practise - Do real exam questions in the area that has been covered in the lesson and reinforce any areas where the student is struggling
4: Discuss - Talk with the student about their progress and what they would like to cover in future lessons.

Preparation
I usually ask students to message me a few days before the tutorial with the areas they would like to cover so that I have time to prepare the session and find materials and exam questions to support the student's learning.

Questions Carlota has answered

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a sole trader business model?

Advantages:
-Easy to set up- no legal formalities
-Owner has complete control-not answerable to anyone else
-Owner keeps all profits
-Able to choose times and patterns of working
-Able to establish close personal relationships with staff and customers
-The business can be based on the interests and skills of the owner-rather than working as an employee for a larger firm

Disadvantages:
-Unlimited liability-all owner’s assets are potentially at risk
-Often faces intense competition from bigger firms
-Owner is unable to specialise in areas of the business that are most interesting-is responsible for all aspects of management
-Difficult to raise additional capital
-Long hours often necessary to make business pay
-Lack of continuity-as the business does not have separate legal status, when the owner dies the business ends too

What is data validation and data verification?

Data Validation
Data validation is the process of comparing data with a set of rules to find out if data is reasonable. 

There are many types of data validation such as:
-Format check: Checks data is in the right format, e.g. date in the format dd/mm/yyyy
-Presence check: Checks that data has been entered into a field
-Range check: Checks that a value falls within the specified range, e.g. IB grades can only range between 0 and 7.
-Type check: Ensures the correct data type has been entered, e.g. age should be a number.

Data Verification
Data verification is the process of checking that the data entered exactly matches the original source to find out if data is accurate.

Data verification methods include:
-Double entry - entering data twice
-Proofreading data - someone checks the data entered against the original document
-Echo - system repeats the data being entered

What is the difference between thermal energy and internal energy?

Thermal energy is the transfer of energy between two different bodies that have a temperature difference between them.

Internal energy is the sum of the potential and the kinetic energy of the molecules of a substance.
