About me

Hi!

My name is Lucy and I am currently studying Anthropology at Durham University, with two further modules in Biology.

I was dedicated to, and enjoyed, studying Biology, Maths and Psychology at A level and received an A* in each. This gives me confidence in my ability to tutor these subjects at GCSE level.

I have work experience in tutoring children from 4-16 years old in English and Maths. I tutored them on a one-to-one basis in a very similar way to My Tutor Web. It was great to form positive relationships with the tutees and rewarding to help them to succeed in areas that they once found difficult.

I have always been frustrated with methods of teaching that focus on memorising facts to be regurgitated in an exam. I feel that success can be found in a true understanding of the basic concepts which can then be built upon at a higher level.

My aim is to make sessions as enjoyable as possible and involve questions and explanations from both myself and the tutee. I feel that this is important as interaction and discussion are vital for gaining a full understanding. I use online animations in order to illustrate my tutor sessions as I find that visualisation of a concept can be extremely beneficial.

I am friendly, confident, hard-working and reliable, and with access to emails throughout the day and evening I aim to offer a quick response.

I would love to answer any of your questions, just send me an email or book a ‘Meet the Tutor’ Session. I look forward to hearing from you!

Questions Lucy has answered

What is 'cotx'?

cot is a short way to write 'cotangent'. This is the reciprocal of the  trigonometric function 'tangent' or tan(x).

Therefore, cot(x) can be simplified to 1/tan(x).

Using trigonometric rules, an alternative way to write 1/tan(x)  is cos(x)/sin(x).

So cot(x)  =  1/tan(x)  =  cos(x)/sin(x)

What is a phagocyte?

Phagocytes are types of cells found in the bloodstream and tissue. They are an important part of the immune system. They recognise foreign antigens on invading pathogens and engulf them. They then digest the pathogen, preventing it from causing disease.
