I study Mechanical Engineering at the University of Nottingham. Maths and science have always been my favourite subjects, and I hope to share my passion for them with you! I have had previous experience in tutoring with two GCSE students in maths, physics, and chemistry, so understand how to approach this.
I am an encouraging and patient person, I've been in your position before and understand just how difficult it can be! Most importantly, I'm very friendly and determined to explain complex concepts as concisely as possible!
Prior to each tutorial, we will discuss the subject, the level at which you are studying, the syllabus, and any specific topics you would like to focus on. Depending on what you want to work on, the tutorial can consist of explaining, understanding, and revising the syllabus, working through textbook questions or homework, and completing past exam papers.
Each session will be tailored to you, you set the pace of each tutorial, it is my aim to make each tutorial fun and engaging and help increase your confidence in your chosen subject. I use the questioning strategy to help you learn and understand the material and to make the session as interactive as possible. Furthermore, I will help you pay attention to the process of learning as well as relating the best study strategies for you.
Finally, if you have any questions, feel free to drop me a message or book a Meet the Tutor Session!

Chain length: a longer chain will have more intermolecular bonds which will lead to a stronger, stiffer polymer
Crystallinity: a more crystalline polymer will have stronger intermolecular bonds which are closer together due to the chains being able to pack closely
Cross-links: covalent bonds between polymer chains will increase the stiffness of the polymer as they are less able to slide relative to one another
Plasticisers: prevent some intermolecular bonds from forming by sitting between the polymer chains, leading to more flexible but weaker polymersee more
1. Set y=a^x
2. Take the natural log of both sides: ln(y)=ln(a^x)
3. Using the log rules, simplify: ln(y)=xln(a)
4. Differentiate both sides with respect to x: 1/y dy/dx=lna+0
5. Rearrange: dy/dx=yln(a)
6. Using the definition of 'y' set in step 1: dy/dx=a^(x)ln(a)see more
Resonance occurs when a driving frequency is similar to the natural frequency of the system. The system is forced to vibrate at its natural frequency and therefore absorbs maximum energy, which means that the amplitude of oscillations is at its peak, and the system is in resonance.see more
