About me

About me

I am a committed and friendly 2nd year physics student at the University of Bristol. The course is intensive in both maths and physics and constantly revisits and reaffirms topics studied at A level.

Teaching has always been a large part of my life, from helping first year physics students with course problems to leading a group of GCSE students through a charity project, or even helping my younger siblings with their homework!

Session style

My aim is to tailor lessons to your chosen syllabus, firstly, ensuring you have the basic understanding behind the concepts. In my experience a good fundamental understanding behind the questions will greatly speed up the learning process, it will also make you better suited for higher education.

After you have the basics we will go through simple questions to test your understanding. Finally we will consolidate what you have learned by going through past papers.

What can I teach?

I'm happy to teach the following A level modules in maths and further maths (any board):

C1 C2 C3 C4 FP1 FP2 FP3 FP4 M1 M2 M3 M4 M5 S1

I'm also happy to tutor A level/GCSE physics as well as GCSE maths for any exam board.

Don't hesitate with any questions. Send me a message using the box on the right.

I look forward to meeting you!

Questions Sean has answered

Prove the identity: sin^2(x)+cos^2(x) = 1

This is one of the most commonly used A level identities which can be proved using only GCSE maths!

Firstly, take an arbitrary right angle triangle with Hypotenuse h, and angle x between h and the adjacent side. (Diagram recommended)

Label the triangle in terms of h and x using simple SOHCAHTOA:

Hypotenuse = h

Adjacent = hcos(x)

Opposite = hsin(x)

Now, using everyone’s favourite theorem (Pythagorean):

h^2 = h^2cos^2(x)+h^2sin^2(x)

Factoring out h^2 on the right hand side:

h^2 = h^2(cos^2(x)+sin^2(x))

Dividing both sides by h^2 to make it explicit:

1 = cos^2(x)+sin^2(x)
