About me

About Me: Hi, my name is Ruby and I am an engineering student at the University of Bristol. I love everything maths and science (especially maths), and teaching has been a passion of mine for many years. As a tutor, I am patient, thorough, and friendly. I have experience mentoring younger pupils at my high school and have also been a dance teacher for many years, so I have a lot experience teaching students of all ages. My Tutorials Your understanding is my top priority. With science and maths, a good foundation of knowledge is vital to your academic success. So we will work together to ensure that you are confident in your scientific and mathematical ability. I also believe that with tutoring, comfort is key. Not only with the subject material but with me as a tutor. So I strive to create a comfortable and enjoyable learning environment,  by using lots of different methods to explain concepts and working out what suits you best. Also feel free to book a Meet the Tutor Session to see if I am the best tutor for you. With my tutorials, you will guide everything, from the focus of learning to the pace. So make sure to include lots of detail in your message, Availability I am currently taking a break in my academic studies to pursue a maths degree so being a tutor on this and other websites is my main priority. This means that I am available for help on almost all weekday afternoons and evenings, and will have much more free time around exams than other tutors as I do not have my own exams to prepare for. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to send me a message. I look forward to meeting you!

Questions Ruby has answered

For the curve f(x) = 2x^3 - 54x, find the stationary points and state the nature of these points

Firstly, find the values of x where f'(x) = 0

f'(x) = 6x2 - 54

6x2 - 54 = 0

6(x+3)(x-3) = 0

x = 3, y = -108 and x = -3, y = 108

Next, find the values of f''(x) at these points

f''(x) = 12x

When x = 3, f''(x) = 36 which is positive and therefore (3,-108) is a minima.

When x = -3, f''(x) = -36 which is negetive and therefroe (-3,108) is a maxima.
