About me

About me:

I am a second year physicist at Durham University. I have always had a passion for the science subjects and hope to instill that passion in you. I have always been an academic student acheiving high GCSE grades across the board and 3 A*'s at A-level in Chemistry, Maths and Physics along with an A at AS Further Maths. I acheived 100% in both of my A-level Physics exams. This combined with my enthusiasm for passing this information onto others makes me the perfect tutor.

Experience:

I have a vast amount of experience working with children and young adults. Since the age of 14, I have been a swimming assistant, teaching younger children. During the summer, I worked as a activity organiser at a residential summer camp with children aged between 11 and 17. I also volenteered as a tutor at a maths club for struggling students whilst at secondary school for 5 years. In addition, I have helped in a primary school where I have been involved in a number of science based projects. This includes: Eclipse Day, devising small powered vehicles and rockets and helping to run a science workshop day at Birmingham Think Tank.

The Sessions:

The sessions would be tailored to your needs to ensure that your targets are reachedIn every session we will go through any topics that you are personally struggling with. This will be done by using useful diagrams and acronyms that  helped me to understand the topic when I was learning it. 

It is also important to me that the sessions are fun! Learning is always much more effective when the session is enjoyable.

How to set up a session:

First, set up a 'meet the tutor' session or message via 'webmail'. This does not commit you to choosing me as your tutor but is a chance for us to discuss your requirements and for me to find out any particular topics that you will want to go through. This is also an opportunity for me to assess the level that the student is working at so that I can plan appropriate work. Assessment will be continuous to ensure that the next steps are planned for.

I look forward to meeting with you soon.

This question is 4 marks so you need to make at least 4 points.

These types of questions just require memorising the 4 points:

Lots of molecules collide with the walls.

The molecules change momentum as they collide with the walls.

Force is the rate of change of momentum.

Pressure = force/area.

Remember these 4 points and you'll get full marks for the question.

Mark has a voucher that gives him 22% off the prices at a hardware store. Estimate how much he will pay for an electric drill that normally costs £87.99. (non-calculator) (3)

It is important to remember this is an estimate, so we can simplify the numbers by saying they get 20% off and the drill costs £90. (1) 10% off would be £9, so 20% off is £18. (1) They have 20% off so they pay £18 less. 90 - 18 = 72.  Mark pays £72 for the drill. (1)

Two cars are crash tested. Car A has a crumple zone, B doesn't. Both cars have mass 1500kg and a driver of mass 80kg and crash at 20m/s. Cars A and B take 0.8 and 0.2 seconds to stop respectively. Using this information, are crumple zones a necessity? (6)

We need to show that car A is safer than car B and this is done by showing that the force is greater on car B than car A. Start by finding the force on car A, total mass 1580kg: Force is the change of momentum / the time for which it acts. Momentum before the crash = mv = 1580 x 20 = 31600kgm...

We need to show that car A is safer than car B and this is done by showing that the force is greater on car B than car A.

Start by finding the force on car A, total mass 1580kg:

Force is the change of momentum / the time for which it acts.

Momentum before the crash = mv = 1580 x 20 = 31600kgm/s.

Momentum after = 0 as v = 0.

force = 31600/0.8 = 39500N (2)

Repeat this for car B and compare the results:

momentum before and after is the same

force = 31600/0.2 = 158000kgm/s (1)

Finally, to answer the question, finish with a closing statement such as: 'Car A has crumple zones which increase the collision time, this significantly reduces the force on the driver and makes the car much safer. Therefore crumple zones should be made a legal requirement' (3)
