About me

About Me: I am 20 and from Devon, currently in my third year studying Maths at the University of Bristol. I have a real passion for Maths and I really hope I can help you to understand, and maybe even enjoy doing maths - I know not everybody does!  My Grades: I have A*s in A level Maths, Further Maths and Physics and I achieved 100% in both of my iGCSE maths papers. I averaged 80% in my first and second years of university. My Experience: I have had two years experience in my school's combined cadet force, where I had to teach small groups about the Royal Navy. This really developed my ability to convey information concisely and in an easy to understand way, while also making it fun!  In the winter and spring before I came to university, I also had weekly sessions with a GCSE maths student. This has really helped me get to grips with one-on-one tutoring and I feel I am very able to pass on my understanding of maths and physics. Over the last two years I have had four online students and three who I tutor in person. I am currently available for new students!  I have completed well over 100 hours of tutoring in total, over 60 of those being online, and have recently been given the title of 'Premium Tutor' by MyTutor. Thanks for looking and please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Questions Lloyd has answered

Solve x^2 + 8x +3 = 0 by completing the square.

Using the completing the square method:

1. Notice (x+4)2 = x2 + 8x +16 which differs from the question by a constant

2. So we can write: 

x2 + 8x + 3 = (x+4)2 - 13      (check this yourself if you don't see it immediately)

3. So from the question we get:

(x+4)-13 = 0

(x+4)= 13     (by adding 13)

x+4 = +-sqrt(13)    (square root remembering to include the +-)

x = -4 +-sqrt(13)      (subtracting 4)

So we have answers of:

x = - 4 + sqrt(13)

x = - 4 - sqrt(13)

which can both be checked by substitution into the original equation.
