I'm Solomon and am currently studying a BSc in Mathematics at the University of Leeds.
I have always had a passion for maths and sciences. Achieving top grades in both GCSE's and A-Levels I have always wanted to help others understand and achieve where they are struggling. I have tutored for 3 years now, both private and to classes in my local secondary school for GCSE exam revision. I also worked in Nepal in 2013 working at a children's home helping with homework and general social skills.
I will aim to keep the sessions fun and enjoyable and keep the tutee engaged!
I look forward to potentially working with you and helping you achieve your best!

Using the Example 9Y + 6
Factorising means to remove a common factor from both the ‘9Y’ term and the ‘6’ – this common factor will then be placed outside the brackets.
For us to complete this question, we must first find the largest number that can divide into both coefficients 9 and 6 – this of course being 3 because 9Y and 6 can be divided by 3 to give whole integer answers.
9Y / 3 = 3Y
6/3 = 2
So having found our largest common factor, and dividing our coefficients our factorisation becomes: 3(3Y + 2). The bracket represents our division sum answers and the 3 outside our common factor.
For practice have a try at these questions:
1) 6X + 12
2) 5Y + 15
3) 2X + 36
4) 4Y – 24see more
