About me

About Me:

I am 19 and from Devon, currently in my second 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 year 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.

Last academic year I had two students on MyTutor who I gave weekly sessions to. You can look at their reviews on my profile. This year I currently have one student on MyTutor. This means I am available for new students! 

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)2 -13 = 0 (x+4)2 = 13     (by ...

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.
