About me

About Me

I am an Italian and English Literature student at the University of Edinburgh. I have a passion for all kinds of literature, and I believe that the more you study a text, the more you appreciate it. I have also enjoyed Maths since I was a child and feel that one-on-one discussion on a topic leads to a much wider understanding. I am patient and cheerful, and have previous teaching experience as a volunteer in a primary school.

Sessions

The sessions will be pupil driven: you will choose the subjects that you want to cover. For English, I will help you to push and develop your ideas through discussion. For maths, I will use both words and diagrams to explain methods until you are comfortable enough to explain them back to me. 

If you have any questions, please send me a WebMail or book a Meet the Tutor Session through this website.

Great, according to my daughter. I think sharing the same first name seems to click. One of my daughter's mistakes she does during maths calculations is answers which have/have not got minus (-) in them. Say 5 x -6 = -30. she could easily forget the (-) and choose 30 as an answer if 30 is also included in the answers. If you could sensitise her in some of these areas. She has done the GCSE maths 3 times already without getting C. And this time she has been asked to do functional skills before she would be allowed to take on the main GCSE maths. I want to believe that with your help she will make it this time around. You may also engage her to see where her short falls are. Thanks Laura.

There are many possible ways to structure an exam style essay, but this is the format I find most effective: 

1. Introduction

You must directly introduce your line of argument in response to the question, introducing a few critical or contextual viewpoints in doing so. Outline the main points you are going to discuss, but avoid using the "I" form, eg. "I will argue that..." Including and analysing a quote from the text (if relevant) can give your introduction extra weight. 

2. The body of the essay

For this I would recommend sorting your argument into 3 or 4 broad points, each taking up a paragraph. Within these must be included evidence/quotations from the text that support your point, close analysis of these quotations and relevant contextual and critical arguments that develop your point. Each paragraph should ideally contain at least one critical reference, and you should aim to provide links between the paragraphs so that the argument runs smoothly.

3. Conclusion

The conclusion must be what follows naturally from the points you have made, but must not just be a summary of the essay. Try to do something interesting with it: suggest other possible questions that your argument raises and its overall significance.

How do you find the length of a side of a right angled triangle when given the other two side lengths?

First, you have to work out whether the side you need to find is the hypotenuse or not. The hypotenuse is the longest side of the triangle, opposite the right angle.  For this question, you use Pythagoras' theorem: a2 + b2 = c2 (Where c is the hypotenuse and a and b are the other sides of the...

First, you have to work out whether the side you need to find is the hypotenuse or not. The hypotenuse is the longest side of the triangle, opposite the right angle. 

For this question, you use Pythagoras' theorem:

a2 + b2 = c2 (Where c is the hypotenuse and a and b are the other sides of the triangle). 

For example, if a triangle has its two sides adjacent to the right angle as 3cm and 4cm, the square of the length of the third side is 32 + 42 = 9 + 16 = 25

Therefore, the length of the final side is the square root of 25, 5cm. 

If you are given the length of the hypotenuse and one other side as 10cm and 6cm respectively, you can find the third side by rearranging the equation: 

c2 - a2 = b2

10- 62 = 100 - 36 = 64 = 82

b = 8.
