About me

About Myself I am a Mathematics student at Edinburgh University. I have a real passion for Mathematics, and I thouroughly enjoy explaining mathematical concepts to others. Having been home-educated all through school (which also gave me opportunities to tutor others), I am very familiar with a one-to-one approach to teaching from the perspective of both the teacher and student. Tutorials In the tutorials, you will decide what we cover; whether you are experiencing difficulties solving a particular problem or have trouble understanding a larger concept. Maths is a fascinating subject, and I hope to instill some my passion in you! In the run-up to exams, we can look at exam papers from previous years, as these are the way to prepare for the actual exam. As I marked my own practice exams while at school level, I am well familiar with what examiners like to see and I can provide advice on how to structure and phrase your answers. Send me a Webmail or book a "Meet the Tutor" session (you can do both through this website). Don't forget to tell me what your exam board is and what you are struggling with.About Myself I am a Mathematics student at Edinburgh University.

Questions Jan has answered

How do I solve this inequality: x^2>2x ?

Solve the equation x2=2x (solve x2-2x=0 by factorisation). Sketch the graphs y=x2 and y=2x, using standard graph shapes. Look at the sketch to see for which values of x the graph y=x2 lies above y=2x; this is your solution.

What is the difference between speed and velocity?

The difference is a bit subtle. Velocity is speed in a particular direction.

So, for example, a car travelling at 50 miles per hour round a bend is travelling at constant speed. Its direction is changing, however, so its velocity is also changing.

Velocity is always measured from a single point. So an object traveling in a circle has velocity zero relative to the centre of the circle, since the distance from the centre to the object is constant..
