About me

I am currently and undergraduate reading Earth Sciences at the University of Oxford. Many people don’t understand what Earth Sciences entails so to enable you to get to know me a little better I thought I should explain. Earth sciences consists of mostly Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Geography, and I picked this course as I loved all these subjects at school so thought through tutoring students I could help pass on my love for these subjects and my appreciation to the knowledge I have gained by studying them.

Experience in tutoring:

I have tutored for many years now, so have met a wide range of personalities, and levels what people work at. I give all my students 100% and believe that if you can work out the way they learn anything is possible and they can then reach their true potential. Due to meeting and working with many people before I have found many ways to help students as they all need different support whether that means revision sessions, helping to explain misunderstood concepts, stretching them academically, building confidence or even just showing them a different side to a subject that they had never considered. This last point is very important as once a student finds something interesting within that subject the drive and enthusiasm often transfers over to the rest of their education.

I hope that this helps to get to know me a little better and I would love to meet you and your child for a quick chat about how I could help.

Questions Emma has answered

How do I simplify [(x^2 + 4x- 12) / (x^2 - 25) ] / [(x+6) / (x^2-5x)] ?

1) Remember your basic fraction rules (A/B) / (C/D) = (A/B) x (D/C)

(Apply this to the problem above but leave as seperate fractions to enable you to cancel it down easily later). 

[(x2 + 4x- 12) / (x2 - 25) ] * [(x2-5x) / (x+6)]

2) Factorise each of the numerators and denominators individually

[((x-2) (x+6)) / ((x+5) (x-5))] * [(x(x-5)) / (x+6)]

3) Cancel alike terms that are common on the numerator and denominator

[((x-2) (x+6)) / ((x+5) (x-5))] * [(x(x-5)) / (x+6)]

 = [x(x-2) / (x+5)]
