About me

I am extremely passionate about maths and science and using them to solve problems in the real world. I hope to inspire all of my tutees to share this enthusiasm in such a useful and important area of study. I am a compassionate, patient and understanding person and my tutoring style is to encourage and praise

I am a post doctoral researcher in mathematics at the University of Exeter. This means I am employed by the university to do research and help out with the lecturing and tutoring of undergraduates. I completed my maths degree at the University of Bristol in 2011 and my PhD in statistics at the University of Exeter in May 2016. 

You will decide what we cover in our tutorials. We could go through questions you have been struggling with in homework or talk through the theory and concepts, which ever you would find most useful, or both! 

I will always find the best way to explain a topic to you as an individual, be it through a real world example, a diagram or a more detailed explanation, because everyone learns in a different way. 

I believe that you learn best when you are enjoying yourself, so I hope we can learn a lot together and have fun!

Questions Laura has answered

A bag contains 12 bals of different colours: 5 red, 4 blue and 3 yellow. What is the probability of not selecting a red ball

The probability of an event not happening is 1 minus the probability of the event happening. Five of the twelve balls are red so the probability of selecting a red ball is 5/12. The probability of not selecting a red ball is 1 - 5/12. Find a common denominator in order to calculate this subtraction: 1 - 5/12 = 12/12 - 5/12 = 7/12.

A musical instrument produces a sound wave with a frequency of 1000 Hz. The sound wave has a wavelength of 0.34 m in air. Calculate the speed of the sound wave in air.

From the equation for speed: Speed = frequency * wavelength 

=> v = 1000 * 0.34 = 340 metres per second 

From the equation for speed: Speed = frequency * wavelength 

=> v = 1000 * 0.34 = 340 metres per second

The triangle ABC is such that AC=8cm, CB=12cm, angle ACB=x radians. The area of triangle ABC = 20cm^2. Show that x=0.430 (3sf)

From the equation of the area of a triangle,

Area = 1/2 AC*CB*sin(C)

20 = 1/2 * 8 *12 * sin(x) 

=> sin(x) = 0.416666...

=> x = 0.430 to 3sf

From the equation of the area of a triangle,

Area = 1/2 AC*CB*sin(C)

20 = 1/2 * 8 *12 * sin(x) 

=> sin(x) = 0.416666...

=> x = 0.430 to 3sf
