About me

An Introduction to Myself:

I am a Chemical Physicist (which means I study Chemistry, Physics and Maths modules) at University of Edinburgh. As well as indulging in Science I also perform poetry, stand-up comedy and love fixing my motorbike! I’ve tutored aspiring students in Maths and English here in England (Kumon, Longlevens) and in Baoding, China, resulting in a very broad range of pupils.

The Lessons:

All Science and Maths come from foundations of concepts, once you have mastered the basics – the rest will come easily! Science is really the connection of patterns, not boring facts and figures; once we have removed ourselves from the humdrum of daily school routine and engage properly in our one-to-one sessions you will rocket along in understanding. The end goal of all my lessons will not be to teach as if you were a disinterested parrot but to inspire the love of Maths and Science that my fantastic teachers gave to me.

…but what about UCAS??

Personal statements can be daunting when they loom, but I will be ready to proof read and proof read again until your statement is ready for the withering heights of the Russell Group Universities and Oxbridge.

Contacting Me:

To ask any questions or queries write a ‘Web Mail’ or book a ‘Tutor Session’ using this website. Please include as much detail as you can about your temporary exam issues, so we can overcome them together! I look forward to meeting you!

Questions Sebastian has answered

What is the Doppler Effect?

The Doppler Effect is the strectching and compressing of waves caused by the movement of the source. Put more simply, when an object emits a sound - say a van beeping its horn it produces a sound of a certain frequency. If the van was moving while beeping its horn then the frequency of the sound will be changed relative to an observer (someone watching the van from the pavement). If the van is moving towards the observer then the relative frequency is increased so the pitch of the sound is also increased, while if it's moving away the frequency is decreased. This is caused by the sound waves bunching up in front of the van and stretching out behind the van as each successive wave front is produced at a certain time later, so the van has moved a certain distance and the next wave to be produced is that extra distance closer or further away from the previous wave. Therefore, the waves appear stretched behind and compressed in front of the moving van. 

This can be given in the Doppler Equation:

f' = f( v /v-vs

where f is the frequency of the horn; f' is the observed frequency; v is the speed of sound in air and vis the velocity of the van relative to the observer. 

The Doppler Effect isn't just limited to Sound but can be applied to all waves which means it can give us deep insights about Light, allowing us to have meaningful revelations about the Expanding Universe.
