#### About me

About you:
• I have done mentoring previously; from being a one-to-one reading mentor, to tutoring whole class for GCSE Maths.
• My passion for maths and sciences has always been there; which is why I chose physics modules as well as maths modules here at Durham.
• I fully understand the A-Level syllabus and exam techniques required to get an A*; as shown by my four A* grades at A-Level.

The session:
• My sessions will focus on me delivering a short and concise run through of the material and then move on to exam questions, slowly offering help as we tactle the problem together.
• This is the style of tutorials at university and I think it is a fantastic way of improving. Though I can change my style to suit individuals as everyone learns differently.
• A optional bonus question of greater difficulty will be available, whether this is for homework, or a problem just to think about before next session is completely up to you. I will reveal the answer at the start of the next session.

Anything else:
• Please do not hesitate to contact me about any questions!

### How do I find the equation of a line connecting points a(p,q) and b(r,s)?

First we need to find the gradient of the line connecting points a and b: gradient m = (change in y)/(change in x) = (q - s)/(p -r) Now we use the following equation: y - y1 = m(x - x1) substituting suitable values for (x1, y1) (can be points a or b but we'll use point a this time) and m (cal...

First we need to find the gradient of the line connecting points a and b:
gradient m = (change in y)/(change in x) = (q - s)/(p -r)

Now we use the following equation:

y - y1 = m(x - x1)

substituting suitable values for (x1, y1) (can be points a or b but we'll use point a this time) and m (calculated above):

Using point a:

y - q = [(q-s)/(p-r)](x - p)

and so the equation in the form y = f(x) is:
y = [(q-s)/(p-r)]x + [(q-s)/(p-r)](-p) + q
