About me

About Me

Hi there! I'm Alok and I'm an Engineering student from Durham! Engineering and all things are associated are my absolute passion and hopefully I'll be able to share that passion with you guys.

I've tutored both Maths and Physics before and have taught programming to a number of people (including HTML, JavaScript and PHP) and am happy to help you in any of these areas. I've worked in a primary school and so I've got plenty of patience. I'm friendly, approachable and always happy to help.

How We'll Work

I believe in learning by doing so the majority of our sessions will be directed towards working through problems together and doing past exam papers. If we ever hit a bump in the road we'll work through lots of examples together to make sure you fully understand the theory and to improve your exam technique.

We'll work out a way to find your best way of learning, whether it's through diagrams, analogies etc. Whatever you find easiest and most appropriate - the tutorials will be tailored towards you.

I'll be available whenever you need me, just drop me a message and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

What Help Can You Give Me?

I can give you formal tuition in Maths, Physics and D&T at both GCSE and IB level. We'll use the syllabuses to ensure the tuition is efficient and effective.

I can also mentor you in programming assignments. I'll help you work towards a solution and make sure you understand the theory along the way.

Questions Alok has answered

Calculate the total resistance of a circuit with a 300 ohm resistor and 250 ohm resistor in parallel with one another.

Remember that to calculate resistances in parallel, the formula we use is:

1/R= 1/R+ 1/R2 etc.

So that gives us:

1/R= 1/300 + 1/250 = 0.0073

To find the total resistance we just take the reciprocal of this:

Rt = 1/0.0073 = 136.4 Ohms

Remember that to calculate resistances in parallel, the formula we use is:

1/R= 1/R+ 1/R2 etc.

So that gives us:

1/R= 1/300 + 1/250 = 0.0073

Rt = 1/0.0073 = 136.4 Ohms

Differentiate f(x) = 3x^2+5x+3

Remember the rules for differentiation?

We take each term which looks like axn where a and n are just numbers and we turn it into: (an)xn-1

So for this example, we go term by term and get:

f'(x) = 6x+ 5x0 + 0 = 6x+ 5

Outline the advantages and disadvantages of Injection Moulding as a manufacturing technique.

Advantages:

-> Repeatable - the same design can be achieved every time with very good accuracy.

-> Economic - hundreds of copies of the design can be produced before the machinery needs to be maintained.

-> Intricate - intricate designs can be achieved very easily.

-> Quick - designs can be produced very quickly

-> Accurate - designs are produced to a high level of accuracy each time.

-> Little waste - there is very little flash and hence very little waste plastic.

Disadvantages:

-> Costly: the capital costs of machinery, development and maintenance are high.

-> Restricted: designs are restricted by what can be achieved with the die.

-> Materials: restricted to thermoplastic materials.
