About me

I am a medicinal chemistry student at Newcastle University. I have always been interested in science and mathematics, and can sit for hours watching documentaries on the subjects. I really enjoy getting stuck into exam questions and working through them methodically to find an answer. I have a friendly and warm personality, and have over 2 years of tutoring experience. I have also been tutored myself, so I have the patience and ability to empathise with your needs. I like to play rounders and before moving to Newcastle, I use to volunteer in an Age UK charity shop in my home town. The Sessions: During the session, you will direct what we cover. We will concentrate on understanding the topics at hand, then we can introduce exam questions and techniques. I like to use a variety of ways to explain topics and make sessions fun, such as diagrams, visuals and analogies dependent on learning styles. You can tell me the ways you prefer to learn and consolidate information. When you feel confident enough to explain the topics back, we can then move onto exam questions and different techniques of answering them. I take a considerable amount of time to prepare tutorial material, as our sessions are just as important to me as they are to you. Most of all, I hope you enjoy our sessions and get as much from them as possible! Personal Statements – Can you help? Yes! Personal statements for university can be very stressful. I hope I can pass on some tips and experiences; helping your passions for your chosen subject, shine through on your UCAS form. What now? If you have any questions, send me a message and remember to tell me your exam board and what topics you’re having issues with. Click on 'Meet the Tutor Session', which is accessible on this website. I look forward to meeting you!

The Chain Rule: Differentiate (x^2 + 1)^5/2 with respect to x

Take one from the power (Un into Un-1) and multiply Un-1 by the old power (n) as well as the differential of the brackets (U') U=x2 + 1 U'=2x Un=U5/2      (n=5/2) Un-1=U3/2 dy/dx= Un-1 * n  * U' dy/dx= (x2 + 1)3/2  *  5/2  *  2x dy/dx = 5x(x2 + 1)3/2

Take one from the power (Un into Un-1) and multiply Un-1 by the old power (n) as well as the differential of the brackets (U')

U=x2 + 1


Un=U5/2      (n=5/2)


dy/dx= Un-1 * n  * U'

dy/dx= (x2 + 1)3/2  *  5/2  *  2x

dy/dx = 5x(x2 + 1)3/2
