About me

About me:

Hi! I'm Catherine and I'm a Mathematics graduate from the University of Warwick. I love studying maths - it's a subject that is so often described as "boring" and "difficult", but I truly believe that with the right teachers and tutors, everyone can enjoy maths (or at the very least, understand it!) I'm friendly, encouraging and professional. I spend time with my students, so that they really understand the material. I am also a Level 2 trampoline coach at my university club and at a local school. This has given me the chance to gain valuable teaching experience to lots of different people, with many different learning styles and needs. A large part of my training as a coach involved understanding how people learn, so I really know what I'm talking about.

About my sessions

​The sessions are really all about you, and what you are struggling with. When it comes to maths, nothing is better than PRACTICE! We will work through examples together to really develop your understanding of concepts. We can work together to find what style of teaching and learning is best for you (whether that be spoken explanations, diagrams, activities, to name a few), so you can learn effectively and efficiently.

What now? ​​Feel free to get in contact with me and ask me any questions! I'm available weekday evenings and weekend mornings, for meet-the-tutor sessions and tutorials.

Catherine deep dives into mathematics,in my daughters words 'she explains it in detail, she makes the most complicated topic seems very simple because she is really good at breaking things down' in my words she is very patient and flexible. thank you Catherine.

Questions Catherine has answered

Solve these simultaneous equations: y=3x-10; y=2x+5

Method 1 (algebraically):

Since we have "y=" at the start of both equations, we can substitue one into the other to get

3x-10=2x+5

Then we want all the x terms on one side of the equation, and all the number terms on the other side. So we can subtract 2x from both sides to get

x-10=5

then add 10 to both sides to get

x=15.

Now we can substitute this x value back into our first equation to find a value for y!

So y=3(15)-10=45-10=35

Then we check that our x and y values (x=15 and y=35) satisfy our second equation.

35=2(15)+5

They do, so we have our answer!

Method 2 (graphically):

​If you have graph paper, and can draw accurately enough, you can draw the two equations as graphs (on the same piece of paper) and find the co-ordinates of the point where they cross.

Ideally, we want you to able to solve equations like this using algebra, however being able to draw the graph allows you to visualise what is happening.
