I am currently studying BSc Mathematics at the University of Exeter. I love my subject and am looking to instill my enthusiasm in those who need a little help.
I am open and friendly, and so will listen to what it is you need of me.
I have experience in teaching. I tutored my brother with the equialent his 11+. In my A-level year I also set up a study group where we could help each other with problem areas. This has shown me that there are multiple ways of explaining a problem with seemingly only one method.
The Sessions will be guided by you, and I will listen to what you need help with to prepare sessions that are interesting and engaging.
If you feel like something isn't working or would prefer to try something else, just let me know!
UCAS? Revision? Exam Stress?
As I'm in my first year of university, the stresses of school are still very fresh in my memory. If you need help with anything outside of your Maths course, feel free to ask!
If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website).
I look forward to hearing from you!

Firstly, you can only complete the square on quadratic functions (functions in the form Ax2+Bx+C)
Consider B, the coefficient of x. Substitute it into ( x + (B/2) )2.
We know if we multiply this out, we will get x2+Bx+(B/2)2.
However, we want x2+Bx+C.
We therefore subtract the (B/2)2 we don't want and add the C we do.
This gives us ( x + (B/2) )2 - (B/2)2 + C.
This method is called 'completing the sqaure'
If A does not = 1, manipulate the quadratic so it is in the form A( x2 + (B/A) x + (C/A)). Solve the bracket as normal and multiply through by A at the end.
