About me

I have always enjoyed tutoring. I find that it gives me a real job satisfaction to see a child or student you have helped feel much more confident. Having worked at a tutoring company, Explore learning, for about 2 years now, I have very good communication skills and a lot of experience working with children of all ages. When it comes to mathematics, I believe that being able to understand the method is just as, if not more, important than being able to answer the question. I love finding different ways to solve puzzles and maths is the best subject for this. There are always a set of logical steps to get the answer. Helping the student understand the problem, rather than just telling them how to do it, prevents the same mistakes from copping up over and over again. If you would like to arrange a meet-the-tutor session, please message me before booking so we can arrange a convenient time.You can find my availability on my profile.

About my sessions

I always prepare for my tutorials beforehand, but the way I prepare depends on the type of tutorial I am giving. The most common types of tutorials I give can be split into three categories; Exam Practice, Homework Help and Topic Tutoring. If you are coming up to an exam, it is often very useful to go through past exam papers with someone. This can either be a paper that the student has completed prior to the tutorial, or we can go through a new one within the tutorial itself. For students who only need a little help here and there, I find going through homework or practice questions can be of great benefit. I stress that I will try to not give out the answers until I am sure they need it. I believe that it is better to understand the problem rather than memorising the answers. Finally, for students who need quite a bit of help, I like to tutor topic by topic. These tutorials go into more depth than the others, and I don't move on from a topic until I am sure that the student has a good understanding. This may sound like the same thing as found in school. However, with me you get a one-on-one aspect which allows me to more quickly identify problems and adapt the way I tutor to the student. Each of my sessions will begin with a short recap of the topic covered in the previous tutorial.

Questions Barnaby has answered

How do I integrate by parts?

Lets use and example: y=x*sin(x). If we try to integrate this normally, we find it very hard. The integration by parts method splits up the function we are integrating into manageable bits. The formula we use to work this out is:

Integral(U*dV)=U*V-Integral(V*dU)

were the dU is the differential of U and dV is the differential of V. In our example y=x*sin(x), we let U=x and dV=sin(x). To find dU we differentiate x (dU=1). To find V we integrate dV (V=-cos(x)). Now we just stick everything in the formula:

Integral(xsin(x))= x*(-cos(x))-Integral((-cos(x))*1)=-x*cos(x)+sin(x) +C

where C is an arbitrary constant. This is the answer.
