About me

About Me

 I am studying physics at the University of Liverpool and am now in my second year having passed with a first in all my modules last year. I really love all things science and have a real drive to pass on what I know to other people. I also have a real passion for history.

I am a very friendly and understanding. I was a member of Air Cadets which involved looking after and teaching younger people from the age 12 onwards various things from how to shoot to the principles of flight which means I have developed a range of tutoring techniques to suit any person.

As well as my experience in cadets I tutored GCSE Maths in my school when I was in sixth form. Here I had regular sessions with year 10's that were in foundation tier and noticed a vast improvement throughout the year.

The Sessions

I am very flexible in how these sessions run with you having the say on what is covered. Whether you want a top-down coverage of the syllabus or just want to fire through some questions I will do my best to explain things in a simple and easy to understand manner so you'll have a complete knowledge on that concept. The main idea with my tutions will be to make the subject more enjoyable which goes a long a way to making it more understandable.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to send me a message or book a "Meet the Tutor" session for free over this website. JUst be sure to message me the exam board and any particular topics you are struggling with so we can get the ball rolling as soon as possible.

I look forward to meeting you soon!

A man decides to shoot a rifle whilst on a wheelchair. Explain in terms of conservation of momentum what happens to the man as the shot is fired.

Assume that initially the wheelchair is stationary. When the rifle is fired a bullet travels in the forward direction. Conservation of momentum states that the momentum before an action is the same as the momentum after an action. Therefore to conserve a total momentum of 0 the wheelchair must...

Assume that initially the wheelchair is stationary. When the rifle is fired a bullet travels in the forward direction. Conservation of momentum states that the momentum before an action is the same as the momentum after an action. Therefore to conserve a total momentum of 0 the wheelchair must move backwards to conserve momentum. given the mass of the wheelchair with the man and the bullet and the velocity of the bullet, we ould calculate the velocity of the wheelchair.

Describe how a stationary wave is formed and some of its properties.

Stationary waves are waves that do not transfer energy. These occur where both ends of the wave are in fixed positions. An example of this would be a string on a violin. As the wave reachs the end of the string it is reflected back onto the oncoming wave. This is called a superposition. Certai...

Stationary waves are waves that do not transfer energy. These occur where both ends of the wave are in fixed positions. An example of this would be a string on a violin. As the wave reachs the end of the string it is reflected back onto the oncoming wave. This is called a superposition. Certain parts of the wave are seen to have no disturbance at all. These are called Nodes and occur where one wave's displacement is canceled out by the other wave and there in no net displacement. This is called destructive interference. Other parts of the wave have parts of maximum disturbance where the peak of one wave meets the peak of the other wave. This is called the antinode. the relative amplitudes and number of nodes and antinodes varies the sound which is heard by the violin

The Curve C has the equation 2x^2-11+13. The point Q lies on C such that the gradient of the normal to C at Q is -1/9. Find the x-co-ordinate of Q

The first ste here is the find the general equation for the gradient  tangential to the curve. This is done by differentiation of the equation to give 4x-11=dy/dx. dy/dx is the gradient. Now we are given the gradient of the normal. As Mt*Mn=-1 we can find that the tangential gradient is 9. plug...

Now we are given the gradient of the normal. As Mt*Mn=-1 we can find that the tangential gradient is 9. plugging this into the equation we can see that 4x-11=9. rearrage to find x so x=20/4 so x=5
