About me

Having spent an Easter vacation giving one-to-one tuition to my younger brother and a number of his friends, I felt a desire to continue tutoring students, via MyTutorWeb. I have had the pleasure of teaching Maths and French in primary schools around Oxfordshire. This was an invaluable experience where I was able to gain a strong understanding of how to communicate with pupils in a learning environment.

 

The student will guide what we cover during the sessions. Whether a particular topic requires in-depth attention or simply a revision of some key points, I will teach the theory behind the concept before working through applied problems and examples. I believe this encourages independent thought while training the mind to spot precisely what is required to gain top marks in examinations. Through experience, I have acquired a range of teaching methods, which I will tailor to meet the individual needs of the student.

 

I am hugely passionate about Maths, French and History. French demands a high degree of logic, particularly when mastering grammar. In Mathematics, while logic is crucial, I believe an ability to think outside the box when tackling applied examination questions is a skill which I believe I can teach. In history, being able to structure essays and tackle source-based questions are both vital to all levels of history and are skills which, in my experience, are improved significantly through tutor guidance.

 

The subjects I have studied provide me with fundamental skills that I would take pleasure in passing on to fellow students. I hope to reach the point where a student, faced with an unseen problem, can approach it from different angles with confidence in their ability.

Questions Nicolas has answered

Differentiation: How to use the chain rule

If y is a function of u, which itself is a function of x, then  dy/dx=(dy/du) x (du/dx) Differentiate the outer function and multiply by the derivative of the inner function.   To illustrate this rule, look at the example below: y=(2x+3)10 in which y=u10 and u=2x+3 Now, dy/du=10u9=10(2x+3...

If y is a function of u, which itself is a function of x, then 

dy/dx=(dy/du) x (du/dx)

Differentiate the outer function and multiply by the derivative of the inner function.  

To illustrate this rule, look at the example below:

y=(2x+3)10

in which y=u10 and u=2x+3

Now,

dy/du=10u9=10(2x+3)9

du/dx=2

The chain rule then gives

dy/dx=(dy/du) x (du/dx) = 10(2x+3)9(2) = 20(2x+3)9
