About me

Hello! My name is Laura and I've just completed my first year studying Mathematics and Statistics at the University of York.

About me:

I have been a tutor for the past 3 years where I have helped students of all ages with English and Maths. I am a patient and friendly individual, I like to focus on bringing fun to education so that I can share my love of learning with others! Enjoyment is a huge part of education as I find that students really thrive once they are interested, relaxed and enthused! 

During the sessions:

Understanding is key when it comes to learning and so I will make sure that we cover all of the areas of your syllabus so that not only will you be able to utilise methods and concepts but you'll really be able to grasp an understanding of how we can apply these topics in the real world. The sessions will cater for your needs so that we can make sure that you are self-assured on any areas that you are struggling with!

Once you are confident on the topics, we will then begin looking at exam papers and exam techniques where I will be able to give neat tricks and tips so that you can use them within your own exams!

Applying to University?

I've been through this process recently and would be pleased to help you overcome an otherwise daunting UCAS application process! If you need any tips on what to write in personal statements or even someone to look over yours and offer advice then I am more than happy to do so!

What's next?

If you have any questions then please do feel free to send me a "WebMail" or book a "Meet the Tutor Session". I would be grateful if you could outline what it is that you're struggling with and also what exam board you are so that I can tailor the sessions for your individual needs!

Laura made me feel much more comfortable with my upcoming exam and helped me a lot giving explanations of rules and why numbers were getting rearranged etc. After the taster session she had gone out of her way to get a lot of examples for me which was brilliant!

Questions Laura has answered

How can I avoid "waffling" when analysing a text?

The approach that I would suggest to any student analysing a text is to use "PEE". This stands for Point, Evidence and Explain and allows your answers to be more focused and ensures that you include as much detail as you can! First, make a point about the text to demonstrate that you can spot certain features. Next, use quotes or data given within the text to provide evidence of the point that you are making. Finally, conclude by explaining your point further, perhaps suggesting why certain features have been included within the text.

How can I remember the difference between differentiation and integration?

A neat trick to remember what we do to the powers when integrating and differentiating is that we INcrease the power when we INtegrate, and Decrease the power when we Differentiate! Once we've got the powers sorted, recall that for differentiation, we multiply the expression by the old power (ie x^2 becomes 2x where 2 is the old power that we are multiplying by) wherease we divide by the new power when integrating (ie x^2 becomes x^3/3 where 3 it the new power we are dividing by.)

How should I go about factorising x^2+5x+6?

I always think of the middle number as the sum and the last number as the product (in this example, we have the sum as 5 and the product as 6!) This just means that we have to look for two numbers which add together to equal the sum (5) and multiply together to give us the product (6). In this case our numbers are 3 and 2 (quick check: 3+2=5, 3x2=6... yes!) Now all that's left is to check which signs we should put infront of these numbers when we put them into brackets. This depends on the signs given within the quadratic, the second sign (+ before the 6) tells us that our two signs must be the same as eachother and the first sign (+ before the 5x) tells us that the signs are both plus! Hence, we now have everything we need to factorise the quadratic and our result is (x+3)(x+2)
