About me

From a young age I have always had a keen interest in science - and animals of course! I want to share this passion with students and show them that science and maths is useful in and out of the classroom. I have been tutoring from KS2 to A-Level since 2014 and feel strongly about everyone getting a high quality education and equal opportunities. I tailor tutorials to each individual student to work towards their goals and build their confidence. Alongside maths and science tuition, I can also provide advice and guidance for aspiring vet students - including personal statements, work experience and the whole application process.

About my sessions

I design my tutorials around each student. I like to use a range of tools to maximise learning, and find what suits each individual. Generally speaking, I find using mindmaps to revise and cover the syllabus, past paper questions and diagrams most useful. We start by addressing weaknesses and worries of the student, and once we are happy and confident with that content, push forward to achieve further understanding. Most students just need a 1-on-1 situation to feel confident answering questions and trying higher level problems.

We chose Emma to help my daughter in her weaker subjects of maths and science. She was able to establish an immediate rapore with my daughter and this has been reflected in the gcse results just obtained. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Emma. Thank you for your help.

I joined mytutor.co.uk after missing months and months of school and I had zero motivation. My mum and i decided to give this website a go and initially I was weary, but after a few sessions I began to pick everything up more easily.Emma has been an amazing tutor and when my motivation was low she helped me become more confident and the teaching was unbelievable. Thank you so much, I wouldn't so content with science if it wasn't for you!

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 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 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?

scalar quantity has magnitude only - for example distance.

vector has magnitude and direction - for example gravity (acceleration towards the centre of Earth).
