About me

Hi

I graduated from Exeter University with a first class degree in Mathematics & Physics (BSc) in 2016. Since then I started a PhD in Physics earing a cometency in research reward however decided to discontinue to persue other interests.

I started teaching on MyTutor to see if I enjoyed teaching as a possible future career. I have really enjoyed my experience so far, and have taught various different levels of mathematics and Physics ranging from 1st year of sixth form (over several different exam boards) all the way up to later years of undergraduate university level. I have a real passion for Physics and Mathematics and I hope to enstill the same attitude in my students.

Hope to see you soon!

About my sessions

The main objective of the tutorials I run is to give my students a sense of confidence in their own knowledge and ability such that they can go away and solve problems indepently. To do this I like to keep the tutorials quite focused on a given topic, such that I can go over the course content checking my students really understand whats in the course as well as practicing/applying the knowledge and developing exam technique in the hour. I find this helps in that at the end of the hour the student has really got a good grasp of the concepts in that area rather that a flimsy understanding of multiple topics. My lessons gernerally consist of 10-15 minutes of recapping/ teaching the core material and then 45-50 minutes of practicing and applying said material. However, ultimately my students know how they learn best and if they would prefer a different lesson structure I am more than willing to accomodate that.

What is a derivative?

A derivative is a mathematical description of how one quantity will change with respect to another. For example the 1st derivative of some function will give you the gradient of the tangent at every point on that function. In the context of mechancis say you had postion as a function of time the 1st derivative would give you the speed or velocity depending on how the function is specified. i.e velocity/speed is the rate of change of postion with respect to time.
