About me

About me:

Hello, I’m Sophie and I’m in my second year at the University of St Andrews, studying for a biochemistry integrated masters. I have previous experience at tutoring as I tutored a family friend in all three sciences for her GCSEs. I have also done maths tutoring for children from 8 to 17 years old. I am friendly, patient and dedicated person who loves the sciences amd maths and is very happy to help others.

About the sessions:

The sessions will be tailored to what you wish to learn. I aim to improve confidence in the subject and help develop a better understanding. In the session we will work at your own pace, ensuring nothing is missed out and a complete understanding is achieved.

I look forward to hearing from you, please don’t hesitate to ask any questions.

A stimulus (for example a pin) stimulates the receptor which causes a nerve impulse in the sensory neuron. The impulse travels to a synapse in the spinal cord, where chemicals diffuse across the gap in the synapse and stimulate an impulse in the relay neurone. This travels to another synapse and an impulse in the motor neurone, which travels to the effector, causing a response (for example moving hand)

Solve the quadratic equation x^2 + 3x + 2 = 0, by factorisation.

We need two numbers, a and b, such that a*b = 2 and a+b=3 Looking at the equation it can be seen that 2 and 1 fulfill these conditions. Therefore x2 +3x +2=0               = (x+2)(x+1)=0 This means we need either x+2 or x+1 to equal 0 x+2=0 so x= -2 or x+1=0 so x= -1 Therefore x= (-1 , -2)

We need two numbers, a and b, such that a*b = 2 and a+b=3

Looking at the equation it can be seen that 2 and 1 fulfill these conditions.

Therefore x2 +3x +2=0
              = (x+2)(x+1)=0

This means we need either x+2 or x+1 to equal 0
x+2=0 so x= -2
or x+1=0 so x= -1

Therefore x= (-1 , -2)

Solve the simultaneous equations 2x + 3y = 4, 3x + 6y = 3

Label the equations (1): 2x + 3y = 4 (2): 3x + 6y = 3 We need the same number of x's or y's in the equations, so multiply (1) by 3 and (2) by 2 giving (3): 6x + 9y = 12 (4): 6x + 12y = 6 Subtract (3) from (4) 6x + 12y - 6x - 9y = 6 - 12 so 3y= -6 so y= -2 Substitute the y value into (1) to fi...

Label the equations
(1): 2x + 3y = 4
(2): 3x + 6y = 3

We need the same number of x's or y's in the equations, so multiply (1) by 3 and (2) by 2
giving (3): 6x + 9y = 12
(4): 6x + 12y = 6

Subtract (3) from (4)
6x + 12y - 6x - 9y = 6 - 12
so 3y= -6
so y= -2

Substitute the y value into (1) to find x
2x + (3*-2) = 4
        2x - 6 = 4
             2x = 10
               x = 5

Check by substituting into (2)
(3*5) + (6*-2) = 15 - 12 = 3 the solutions work

So x = 5 and y = -2
