**About me:**

Hi, I'm Kamil - a first year Mathematics & Computer Science undergraduate from Oxford University. I am looking to tutor in my __favourite subject – Mathematics__.

Whether you would like some help with your homework, preparation for exams or mathematical competitions, or maybe you just want to enhance your mathematical skills, I would be more than happy to share with you my experience and enthusiasm in Maths. I can teach any topic from primary school up to high school.

I have many achievements in prestigious competitions such as Olympiads in Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics*. I also had excellent grades in my high school exams. Although I began tutoring quite recently, I have already had many satisfied students. Two of them needed a last-minute preparation for a resit and thanks to an intensive work with me they passed with very good grades.

**The session:**

I try to make my sessions enjoyable and challenging. My focus is always on __understanding__ the ideas because this is what will make you succeed in the exams. I encourage my students to ask questions and to think independently. Apart from Maths, I can also explain to you a few topics in Physics and Computer Science or give some advice about applying to Oxford.

Recall that a geometric progression is a sequence (a_n) defined as follows

a_1 = a

a_n = a * r^(n - 1) for all integers n > 1

where a and r are some fixed numbers and r /= 0 is called the common ratio of a sequence.

Let's denote S_n as the sum of the first n terms of this sequence.

**Case r = 1**

Then all the terms are equal to a so

S_n = n*a

**Case r /= 1**

Then we have

S_n = a_1 + a_2 + … + a_n = a + a*r + … a*r^(n - 1) = a * (1 + r + … + r^(n – 1))

Now the formula for the difference between two n-th powers tells us that

r^n - 1 = r^n – 1^n = (r - 1) * (1 + r + … + r^(n-1))

and since r /= 1 we can divide both sides by r – 1 to have

1 + r + … + r ^(n - 1) = (r^n - 1) / (r – 1)

Finally, substituting this expression into the first equality we get

S_n = a * (r^n - 1) / (r – 1)
