Who am I?
My name is Kate and I am currently in my first year studying BSc Psychology at the University of Birmingham. From 2009 to 2016 I attended Altrincham Grammar School for Girls and completed both my GCSEs and A Levels there; I achieved AAAB in Psychology, Maths, EPQ and Spanish respectively at A Level, as well as an A in History at AS Level, and 7 A*s and 3 As at GCSE.
However I believe teaching should aim to inspire a genuine interest in the subject for the students rather than focus solely on the final grade, although I do appreciate this is also important for reaching the next on your academic career.
Furthermore I understand that A Levels, GCSEs and many other aspects of school life can often be very stressful and so I will always do whatever I can to help relieve that stress by aiding your understanding of your subjects and allowing you to progress with your studies.
How will I teach you?
I believe there are two important things with regards to learning, it should be fun and it should be interactive, however I understand no two students will learn effectively in the same way and so I will always work with you to find a method of teaching which is most beneficial for your learning and which allows you to get the most out of the sessions.
I am also more than happy to mark any essays, past papers or other pieces of work you have completed and provide feedback so you are able to constantly learn and improve both the content and style of writing.
Please feel free to send me a message if you think I would be able to help you and I look forward to sharing my passion for education, and especially my chosen subjects, with you!

3 x 6 + 5 - 1 = 32
Without any brackets the answer to the calculation would be 22 following the rules of BIDMAS (Brackets, Indices, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction)
Therefore to make the calculation correct it's necessary to insert brackets around the 6 + 5 so that now the number multiplied by 3 is 11 therefore equating to 33 which becomes 32 when 1 is subtracted from it.
Final answer: 3 x (6 + 5) -1 = 32see more
In order to solve equations of x it is necessary to move all the Xs over to one side and the other numbers over to the other side;
5x - 4 = 3x + 7
As 5x is greater than 3x it makes sense to subtract 3x from both sides so that any negative Xs are avoided, this changes the equation to:
2x - 4 = 7
The next step is to add 4 to both sides to cancel out the -4 on the left hand side;
2x = 11
Finally dividing both x and 11 by 2 will give the value of x;
x = 11/2 or x = 5.5
*A key thing to remember when solving equations is whatever you do to one side you MUST do to the other, e.g. if you divide one side by 3 you must divide the other side by 3, or if you add 6 to one side you must add 6 to the other side. This ensures that the equation stays correct as both sides continue to equal each other.see more
