About me

I am a computer science student at the University of Manchester. Teaching has always been a hidden passion of mine and unlike most I actually enjoyed my time in high school. 

The sessions will be completely tailored to the you where I will be using a variety of simple and abstract examples to ensure their understanding is where it needs to be. Not only will I be helping the student with the material but will also attempt to help you on a more general level with regards to exam technique and being able to think for themselves as I feel schools do not do this well enough.

I don't consider myself to just be a maths tutor and will aim to help you in any way possible regarding any other subject matters / issues in life.

If you have any questions feel free to drop me a message or book a meet the tutor session. Let me know what you arte struggling with and your exam board in your message and I should get back to you as soon as possible.

I look forward to meeting you!

Questions Irfan has answered

Find the value of 0.3 × 0.2

This question asks us to multiply 2 decimal numbers

The steps involved with this question include:

Step 1) Manipulate the numbers we are working with to give us an easier calculation.

Step 2) Once we have done our easier calculation we need to reverse the manipulation we did in order to get the correct answer.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Calculations

Step 1) 0.3 multiplied by 0.2 is a difficult calculation, however 2 multiplied by 3 is a much easier calculation. If we change our 0.3 to 3 and our 0.2 to 2 we will have a much easier time finding the answer.

To manipulate our original number we will multiply 0.3 by 10 to give us 3 and our 0.2 also by 10 to give us 2.

Having done this, our calculation becomes 3 times 2 which is equal to 6.

This is not our final answer

Step 2) Since we multiplied both 0.3 and 0.2 by 10, we must do the opposite to the answer of 6.

First we do 6 divided by 10 which gives us 0.6. This has reversed one multiplication by 10 however we multiplied by 10 twice, so we need to divide by 10 again.

0.6 divided by 10 is 0.06 and this is our final answer.

What is the average temperature in September?

---------------------------------------------------------------------

There are 3 key pieces of information the question gives us:

1) The average temperature in May is 18ºC

2) The average temperature in November is a third of the average temperature in May

3) The average temperature in September is twice the average temperature in November

(I know I may have just rewritten the question but for the sake of understanding this is key)

In order to answer this question there are 2 steps required:

Step 1) Find the average temperature of November

Step 2) Use that to find the average temperature in September

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Calculations

Step 1) The average temperature in November is calculated by doing 18 divided by 3 which gives us 6.

Step 2) Therefore the average temperature in September is 6 multiplied by 2 which gives us the answer of 12ºC
