About me

ABOUT ME

I am a 19 year old physics student at Oxford University, and I love my subject, because I love solving challenging problems . I have wanted to tutor for a while now because of this; I’d like to help others with whatever they find challenging. Outside of lectures, I focus on foreign languages- I spent time at school in France, which exposed me to new ways of learning and a new language.

TUTORING

Whether you are looking to come to terms with French grammar, or are grappling with differential equations, I’d love to hear from you. Our goal would be to create personally tailored tutorials- everyone learns best in a different manner and it is important that we keep sessions interesting!

EXPERIENCE

I always tutored my friends at school, in various subjects, in both France and Ireland. Now I am starting to professionally tutor Irish students for their final exams. We try to make lessons enjoyable- it makes the content much easier to remember. Oxford tutorials taught me how teaching is about efficient learning… condensing what you need to know and ensuring you understand key material.  

OXBRIDGE

I am willing to chat to any prospective Oxbridge students. Recently, to prepare for a talk at my school, I spoke to the admissions department at Balliol college to find out what they seek in students, which was very useful. As an Irish student I am aware of the things I wish I had been told when I applied, and feel it can be very helpful to be prepared, especially for interview.

Please get in touch if you feel I could help you, or you would just like to hear more. You can contact me through the site with any questions. I look forward to hearing from you, and good luck with exams!

Monique tutored me for A-level Maths C1 and C2 AQA, and she was truly amazing. She tutored me up from a U to a as of yet unknown grade, but it is around B/C grade in less than 10 sessions. - one of the best maths tutors I have ever had.

Very satisfied.Is a big help to our daughter with IGSE preparation (Chemistry / Physics)

Mark (Parent) May 11 2016

Patient and expert as always.

Shirley (Parent) May 3 2016

I'm so grateful for my tutorials with Monique. She has shown me some easier ways to tackle a few math problems and is giving me valuable advice on how to handle my upcoming exams.

A 1.6m long string fixed at both ends vibrates at its fundamental frequency... (i)what is this frequency?

For the first part, we consult the formula c=fλ. This tells us that wavelength is inversely proportional to frequency.. ie as one increases the other decreases. This means the lowest(fundamental) frequency goes with the longest wavelength. If you consult a diagram of a vibrating string, you'll...

For the first part, we consult the formula c=fλ. This tells us that wavelength is inversely proportional to frequency.. ie as one increases the other decreases. This means the lowest(fundamental) frequency goes with the longest wavelength. If you consult a diagram of a vibrating string, you'll see that the greatest wavelength is equal to twice the length of the string.(This is because there must be a node at each end, and is best shown with diagrams).

So the wavelength we are looking for is 1.6x2= 3.2m. Since this is a sound wave c=340m/s. All our numbers are in the correct units, so we may proceed, using f=cλ. The answer is f=106.25Hz

Atmospheric Pressure is about 1.0x10^5 Pa. What is the downward force of the air on a desktop of surface area 1m^2?

Here we are dealing with force, pressure and area so we use the formula F=PA.  We simply slot in the given numbers where P=1x105, and A=1. The resulting force is 1x105N.

Find dy/dx where y=e^(4xtanx)

Here, we must apply both chain and product rules. The chain rule can be used to find the derivative of a function in the form ef(x), like this one. However it is useful to know that this will result in the following: f'(x)ef(x)... in other words the solution is always the derivative of the pow...

Here, we must apply both chain and product rules. The chain rule can be used to find the derivative of a function in the form ef(x), like this one. However it is useful to know that this will result in the following: f'(x)ef(x)... in other words the solution is always the derivative of the power times the initial equation. Knowing this can save a lot of time in the exam- it appears a lot.

Now, our only issue is finding the derivative of 4xtanx... this requires the product rule(the derivative of a product function uv= vdu+udv). In this example u=4x and v=tanx. Now du=4 and dv=sec2x. Slotting these into the above formula we get: 4tanx+4xsec2x. 

All that is left is to bring together these two parts to get: d(e4xtanx)/dx= (4tanx+4xsec2x)e4xtanx.
