Do you want help with Maths, Physics, Geology or Geography? Or desperately need a dedicated tutor to mentor you through writing your personal statement? Look no further! I’m Emily, studying Geology at Imperial College London and wish to use my experience of exams to help students with maths, physics, geology and geography! I also offer any kind of help I can to those writing personal statements.
I achieved 8 A*s and 1 A at GCSE including Maths, Physics and Geography and A*A*A at A level in Geology, Physics and Maths as well as an A in AS Level Geography.
With these grades I believe I know what it takes to succeed in exams, and how to develop an understanding of a subject so as to feel completely confident at the level required. I strongly believe anyone can achieve this with the right guidance: plan, practice, perfect!
A bit about me
I love all things science and outdoor adventure (hence my love for geology)! I play hockey for my department – The Royal School of Mines – and love wondering about exploring London.
With all subjects, a basic understanding and appreciation of simple concepts is the key starting point. From that, practice makes perfect in everything! I hold my success to past papers, but didn’t start acing them until I had gone through every element of each course.
I am very flexible and you can either tell me exactly what you want to spend the hour sessions doing or you can leave it up to me and I will prepare helpful, interactive and hopefully enjoyable sessions! From that we’ll adapt so that you get the most out of the hour. The most important aim is to give you a deep understanding of a topic in order to perfect exam technique.
I had an amazing online mentor whilst writing my own personal statement. They were detailed, patient and honest and I hope to help someone else just as I was. I remember the pain of UCAS and know that ‘little and often’ is the ley and with someone else guiding you, this is much more manageable.
Get in Touch!
Don’t worry if you are a bit shy or nervous – that’s normal! I would love to hear from you and to arrange a free 15-minute ‘meet the tutor’ session. We can get to know each other and I can find out what you want, what exams you are taking and generally how you want to proceed! Even if you just want a bit of advice I am more than happy to help.

x^2 + y^2 = 9
x + y = 2
1) Firstly look at the second equation which is the simplest and think how you can rearrange it to fit into the first equation:
x + y = 2 can be rearranged to y = 2-x
2) y = 2-x can then be substituted into the first equation, and 'gets rid of' the y in the process! Check it out:
x^2 + (2-x)^2 = 9
3) now expand the brackets:
x^2 + (2-x)(2-x) = 9
x^2 + 4 -2x -2x + x^2 = 9
2x^2 -4x + 4 = 9
4) Now if we can 'move the 9 over the equals sign', we will have an equation that equals zero. This looks like a quadratic equation!
2x^2 -4x - 5 = 0
5) Always think 'factorise!' whenever presented with a quadratic. However this doesn't work in this case, so we are going to have to use the quadratic formula!
Try it and see!
The answer is:
x = 2.87 and y = -0.87
x = -0.87 and y = 2.87
TIP: always check your answer when you can (put the values back into the orignial equations
This question is a grade A* so don't worry if it seems difficult (I will be more than happy to go through simpler questions and then try and build up your confidence from there!)see more
