About me

Hello! I'm a 3rd year Mathematics student at the University of Edinburgh with a sturdy passion for all things Mathematics. I just adore how beautifully logical and rigorous it is! Not only do I love Maths, I love teaching it and helping people with problems. In particular, I enjoy finding the best way to explain tricky concepts to people so that they suddenly become easily understandable. With regards to hobbies, I sing as a bass in the Edinburgh University Music Society Chorus and in the Edinburgh University Musical Medics Choir, which raises money for local medical charities.

I have been teaching GCSE, A Level and IB students on MyTutor for almost a year now! During Sixth Form, I also helped GCSE Maths students in the run up to their exams and volunteered at a local primary school helping the kids out during their lessons.

I am also a fully-trained MathPALS (Peer Assisted Learning Scheme) leader at the University of Edinburgh, which means I organise and run informal interactive study sessions for 1st year Maths students. Through my PALS training, I have learned the importance of facilitation whereby I guide and prompt the student to the correct solution rather than just revealing what it is straight away. This has proven to be much more beneficial to the students' understanding as it requires more independent thought and is a technique I employ in all of my tutorials.

About my sessions

In my lessons, what we cover is completely up to you. I am able to aid you with whatever you’re struggling with, and can teach you whatever you would like to learn. Through clear explanations and facilitation, I ensure that my students really understand the material so that they can apply it to any situation they encounter in Maths.

Additionally, I can offer advice on UCAS applications for Maths courses, such as how to perfect that personal statement or how to prepare for admissions tests, having been there myself. And of course I can also give first-hand experience of what it’s actually like studying Maths at university.

Questions Oliver has answered

What is the tangent line to the curve y = x^3+4x+5 at the point where x = 2?

First, we must find the value of y when x = 2. y = x3+4x+5 = (2)3+4(2)+5 = 21 Then we must find the gradient of the tangent line. This can be done by differentiating y with respect to x and substituting x = 2. dy/dx = 3x2+4 = 3(2)2+4 = 16 Now that we have a point (2,21) and the gradient (m =...

First, we must find the value of y when x = 2.

y = x3+4x+5 = (2)3+4(2)+5 = 21

Then we must find the gradient of the tangent line. This can be done by differentiating y with respect to x and substituting x = 2.

dy/dx = 3x2+4 = 3(2)2+4 = 16

Now that we have a point (2,21) and the gradient (m = 16) of our tangent line, we can find the equation of the tangent using the formula:

y-y= m(x-x1)

y-21 = 16(x-2)

y = 16x-32+21

Thus y = 16x-11 is the equation of the tangent
