About me

Hello!

I'm a Maths with French student at Southampton University. I love being able to help people fully grasp challenging mathematics. Maths can be a difficult thing to get your head around, but with a personal tutor you can learn much more efficiently by pinpointing the area that is causing you diffiliculty which cannot be done with 30 students in a classroom. Not only will you be able to solve difficult problems that seemed too complicated beforehand, you will get a great sense of achievement from correctly solving tough mathematical problems.

As a tutor I will let you explain the area that you are finding difficult and together we will find a better way of understanding how to solve the problem. Sometimes it will be in an instant that you everything will click and other times it will take a bit more practice to get used to a new way of thinking about a problem. But once you feel you have understood the topic I will ask you explain how to tackle to topic in question so that you will be able to solve any question on that topic. 

I am also happy to tutor students in French, having just spent a year in Belgium I am fully competant in the language and happy to help you begin or continue to improve your fluency in the language.

Expand and simplify (3x+2) (x-5)

We expand this term by term. To make sure we expand every term, I use the beak method. To do this, draw 2 curves over the equation from the 3x to the x, and then a second curve from the x to the +2. Then draw 2 more curves, this time under the equation, from the 3x to the -5, and the second ...

We expand this term by term.

To make sure we expand every term, I use the beak method. To do this, draw 2 curves over the equation from the 3x to the x, and then a second curve from the x to the +2.

Then draw 2 more curves, this time under the equation, from the 3x to the -5, and the second from the -5 to the +2.

You will notice the lines make an outline of a beak.

Now we are ready to multiply all of the lines.

3x * x = 3x2

x * 2 = 2x

3x * -5  = -15x

5 * 2 = -10

Now we simply add all of these calculated terms together:

3x2+2x-15x-10

We can do one step of simplification as there are two x terms:

2x-15x=-13x

This now gives us the final answer:

3x2-13x-10
