About me

About me

I am an undergraduate Discrete Mathematics student at The University of Warwick and have recently finished my first year there with first-class grades.  

I am most passionate about mathematics and music because they require a mixture of both creativity and sound logic.

Regarding teaching experience, I taught piano lessons to a secondary school student and taught music to a school orchestra and choir during sixth form.  These experiences enabled me to develop patience and clarity when teaching.

The tutoring sessions

I will ensure that you leave each session with a clear understanding of the topics that we have covered.  This will be done by encouraging you to explain the lesson's concepts to me in your own words.

I believe in the power of engaging as many senses as possible in the learning experience, so I will use and recommend different modes of learning, including videos, audio clips and practical exercises.

Extra advice

I am able to share advice about the university application process for mathematics-related degrees, as I have recently been through this.  Additionally, I am very happy to suggest ways in which you can practically apply mathematical and musical concepts in the real world.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Questions Caleb has answered

How do I find dy/dx for the following equation: (x^2) + 2y = 4(y^3) + lnx?

This is an example of implicit differentiation with respect to x.

The technique for differentiating such an equation is as follows:

1. Differentiate each term in x with respect to x.

2. For each term in y, differentiate with respect to y, and multiply the result by dy/dx.

3. Rearrange the resulting equation, to make dy/dx the subject of the formula.

Solution:

Let equation (x^2) + 2y = 4(y^3) + lnx be called (*).

Differentiating (*) with respect to x, then rearranging, according to the three rules above, gives:

2x + 2(dy/dx) = [12(y^2)](dy/dx) + (1/x) =>

[2 - 12(y^2)](dy/dx) = (1/x) - 2x =>

2[1 - 6(y^2)](dy/dx) = [1 - 2(x^2)]/x =>

dy/dx = [1 - 2(x^2)]/(2x[1 - 6(y^2)]).
