About me

Who am I? I am a veterinary student at the University of Liverpool. From a young age I have always had a keen interest in science - and animals of course! I want to share my passion for science and maths with others, and show that it's not a bore! What experience do I have? Before starting university, I spent six months working as a teaching assistant at a secondary school. I also taught GCSE subjects to a student who had missed several months of school. When I moved to Liverpool, I started volunteering with Action Tutoring - a charity providing extra support for disadvantaged students. How do the sessions work? I tailor the sessions around you - we will go through what you find difficult, building your confidence along the way. I like to use a variety of resources (diagrams, quizzes, crosswords, etc) to make sure you grasp the concept and can share your knowledge with others. Once you are happy with the basics and comfortable with what you previously found difficult, we will build on that knowledge and push you forward in the subject.  What else can I help with? Vet school can be extremely challenging to get into - I can offer advice and support with finding work experience, your personal statement and any other queries you may have. I look forward to meeting you!

Sonia (Parent) February 16 2017

It was a great tutorial and I learned which topics I lack knowledge on. This will help me direct my studying. Thanks.

Sonia (Parent) February 12 2017

excellent first session, straight to the point. Extremely encouraging to my son whilst assessing him effectively. I am very impressed and so glad Emma is teaching our son.

Jack (Student) February 12 2017

from Jack: It was a good session and highlighted points I needed to go over. Sonia:Emma you are a wonderful teacher. You are patient, supportive and straight to the point. I was extremely impressed. You have demonstrated in one hour that Jack lacks knowledge. Perhaps he does lack exam techniques but he does not know enough. Although he studies a lot after school and weekends, we need to fine tune this and revisit all revision notes. I am extremely grateful we chose you. Thank you so very much. ps: If you believe Jack needs more than two hours a week please tell me. We do not have unlimited budget but this is vital.

Thanks for being flexible on the time Emma

Questions Emma has answered

If 2x + y = 13 and 3x - y = 12, what are the values for x and y?

To solve these simulataneous equations we need to use substitution: If 2x + y = 13 then y = 13 - 2x Therefore 3x - y = 12 can be rewritten as 3x - (13 - 2x) = 12 We can expand these brackets and solve for x: 3x - 13 + 2x = 12 -> 5x = 25 --> x = 5 Now we have the value of x, we can subsitut...

To solve these simulataneous equations we need to use substitution:

If 2x + y = 13 then y = 13 - 2x

Therefore 3x - y = 12 can be rewritten as 3x - (13 - 2x) = 12

We can expand these brackets and solve for x:

3x - 13 + 2x = 12

-> 5x = 25

--> x = 5

Now we have the value of x, we can subsitute this into either of the initial equations to find the value of y:

2(5) + y = 13

--> 10 + y = 13

--> y = 3

OR:

3(5) - y = 12

--> 15 - y = 12

--> y = 3

You can then check your values are correct by subsituting them into either of the equations:

2(5) + (3) = 13

10 + 3 = 13 --> it works!

What is empirical formula and how is it worked out?

This is the lowest/simplest ratio of the molecule.  For example propene has the formula C3H6 - if we look a the subscript numbers  (the ones down here!) we can see that smaller numbers are possible. It is important to know the relationship between these numbers. In this case you can write this...

This is the lowest/simplest ratio of the molecule. 

For example propene has the formula C3H6 - if we look a the subscript numbers (the ones down here!) we can see that smaller numbers are possible. It is important to know the relationship between these numbers. In this case you can write this simply as CnH2n. Therefore the empirical formula for propene is CH2.

Another example is propane which is C3H8We can work out that the relationship is as follows: CnH2n+2 and therefore the empirical formula is CH4.

What is the difference between a scalar and a vector quantity?

A scalar quantity has magnitude only - for example distance. A vector has magnitude and direction - for example gravity (acceleration towards the centre of Earth).
