About me

I am currently studying Physics at Bristol University. I've always had a love for Science and Maths, and I am excellent at showing my passion for my subjects. I've had experience teaching, in both an academic environment and a more laid back environment, when I used to volunteer to run the local scout troop.

With this experience, I have learnt to be very patient and understanding with students who may be struggling on more complex topics. I feel that I am great at explaining reasonably complex ideas in very simple terms, by breaking the problems down and starting from the beginning.

Because you will guide the sessions, we can spend as long as needed on any part of a topic. This may be if you're stuck on a certain part of a topic, or if a problem arose as part of a larger topic. In essence, the sessions can be adapted in order to suit exactly what you need and to play towards how you learn. Finally, if money is a problem when it comes to tutoring, I'd be happy to discuss discounts for multiple sessions. If you have any questions, please just send me a message.

Questions Toby has answered

How can an object in circular motion be accelerating when it's at the same speed?

In Physics, there are two types of numbers: scalars and vectors. Scalars are just a normal number, as we are used to. Vectors also have a direction associated with them. Thus, variables like temperature and speed are scalars, yet acceleration and weight are vectors.

Because a vector is made up of different parts, one in the x direction, one in the y, if the vector is velocity then these components will change depending on the direction of the object, even if the magnitude of the vector is constant. Because acceleration is the rate of change of the velocity, or the derivative of velocity, this depends upon each component of velocity, thus a change in direction means a change in acceleration.

What does differentiation actually mean?

Differentiation is defined as the rate of change of a function. Imagine we had a function f(x), which we shall let equal x2. We all know what the graph of xlooks like.

The derivative of xis 2x. This means that, as the variable x increases, the gradient increases by 2x. In graphing a derivative, effectively the gradient is on the y axis, hence the steeper the curve of y, the higher the derivative.
