Degree: Natural Sciences (Bachelors) - Cambridge University
Hi! I’m Miriam and I study Physical Natural Sciences at Cambridge University. In my first year I took Physics, Maths, Chemistry and Earth Sciences as my modules, but my real interest lies with Physics and Maths, which I’m taking to study in further depth next year. I love my subject and I aim to share that love with anybody who studies with me.
I have done voluntary work with a science summer camp for children where I conducted lessons of my own as well as helped out with multiple activities. I am enthusiastic, patient and understanding.
Tutoring in Science and Maths
I believe that anyone can do well in Science and Maths, it’s simply a matter of taking the time to both understand the material fully and do a lot of practise questions. So in my sessions, I’ll first try to help you understand a concept. Then we will go through examples, or exam questions, together until you feel confident on the topic. Don’t worry if it takes more time than a single session - I’d definitely rather we covered a topic again if it means that you understand it better!
I take great care when teaching to try and understand why you might be stuck on a certain topic, in order to not be patronising in any way. Please ask lots of questions and don’t be afraid to speak up when you’re stuck or if I’m not explaining it in a way that makes sense to you!
Oxbridge and University Applications
I am more than happy to discuss Personal Statements with you and help you with your UCAS application and interview techniques for any university, not just Oxbridge. As someone who’s struggled through it all, I know what a stressful time it is and will pass on all advice, tips and tricks I learnt during my application.
I am very familiar with the Cambridge application system so can offer specialist advice for the process, selecting a college, interviews etc. (Some of this advice is also applicable to Oxford!)
Please feel free to contact me if you feel like I would be suitable to teach you. You can either send me an email or book a ‘Meet the Tutor Session’. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and I hope that I can help you out!

Let y = tan(x)
Recall the definition of tan(x) as sin(x)/cos(x)
Therefore y = sin(x)/cos(x)
Use the quotient rule, which states that for y = f(x)/g(x), dy/dx = (f'(x)g(x) - f(x)g'(x))/g2(x) with f(x) = sin(x) and g(x) = cos(x).
Recall the derivatives of sin(x) as cos(x) and cos(x) as -sin(x)
dy/dx = (cos(x)*cos(x) + sin(x)*sin(x)) / cos2(x)
Recall the trigonometric identity sin2(x) + cos2(x) = 1
Therefore dy/dx = 1/cos2(x) = sec2(x)
