About me

I study Mathematics at the University of York - I absolutely love Maths, and it's often given a bad name because a lot of people tend to not understand the harder concepts. Therefore with all my students, I aim to simplify the complex theories and teach the critical thinking required to really succeed in Mathematics. My chosen electives are Pure Mathematics and Applied Mathematics, I choose these two subjects because I found them the most exciting and challenging, and I hope to further study into both areas in the future.

I spent this summer in Germany teaching German children English (60 hours of lessons in total), this was a brilliant experience and really helped me develop my teaching skills. It also taught me the importance of making lessons exciting - if you're passionate about a subject then this reflects upon your student and they tend to be far more interested and excited by the concept as a result! There's absolutely nothing better than seeing a student's eyes light up when you're teaching them something new. 

I have over 70 hours teaching experience with MyTutor alone, and I have spent countless more hours tutoring lower level students Mathematics during Secondary School. When I'm not teaching I like to hike, play rugby, netball or rounders. On a weekly basis, I volunteer at my local Brownie Unit, where I spend two hours leading a group of twenty girls, organising a large range of activities for them.

About my sessions

I like to use welcome meetings as a chance for not only you to meet me, but also for me to get a really clear picture about a student's ability and how I would be able to help them achieve great results in the future. This can involve anything from just discussing with the student what specific areas they find difficult and what they wish for me to focus on, or instead, I can test them on a number of topics to understand in which areas they need extra support. From this I can begin to plan my first few lessons, where I can explain the topic more clearly or perhaps in a different way, we can then work together on a range of question progressing from easier to more difficult until it is clear the student fully understands the topic. I am sure to include review sessions in each tutorial, where I will give the student a few questions based on previous topics we covered - after all practice makes perfect!

Questions Ellie has answered

Solve Inx + In3 = In6

To solve Inx + In3 = In6 we must follow some basic log rules, 

logb(mn) = logb(m) + logb(n)

if we compare this with the left side of our equation, Inx + In3, we will set m = x and n = 3, 

mn is therefore 3x

this means that Inx + In3 is equivalent to In3x

So replacing that into our original equation:

In3x = In6

Take In of both sides

3x = 6

therefore x = 2

To solve Inx + In3 = In6 we must follow some basic log rules,
