About me

Hi! I’m Thomas and I’m studying Design Engineering at the University of Bath. I love studying engineering because I really enjoy mathematics and science, but I also like to draw and create things. When I’m not studying I like to compose music or play some Badminton.

I’ve had experience in helping my classmates with tough subjects like Maths and Physics, and know how frustrating it can be when you don’t understand something. I believe that with a tailored approach and some passion, everyone can do well in these subjects!

Being in my first year of university, I still have a clear memory of the pressure that comes with exams and university applications. As such, I would be more than happy to help a student do their best in these two important stages of education: whether that be with exam and revision technique or time management and personal statement writing.

About my sessions

Because tutoring is very personal, I like to let the student lead their learning.

Whether a student says “I don’t get Maths” or “I need help with this subject”, my goal is to provide the student with a learning style specifically suited to their needs to maximise their potential.

Should the student prefer to cover certain topics, I can provide in-depth information, worked examples and exercises for practice. Otherwise, if they prefer to follow the school curriculum I am available to regularly review/help with coursework and answer any questions to cement the knowledge.

I can adapt to these and anything in between, depending on what the student needs and feels more comfortable with. Should they desire, I can even go beyond the scope of the course for their personal interest.

I make extensive use of the workspace. From experience, a visual understanding is very useful when tackling Maths and Physics.

Questions Thomas has answered

Using complex numbers, derive the trigonometric identities for cos(2θ) and sin(2θ).

When dealing with complex numbers and trigonometric functions, always turn to DeMoivre's Theorem that states [cos(θ)+isin(θ)]n = [cos(nθ)+isin(nθ)]. If we set n=2, the we see a combination of cos(2θ) and sin(2θ) on the right hand side. From here, we can expand the left hand side, just like we would with a normal quadratic expression, giving us: cos2(θ) + 2cos(θ)(isin(θ)) + (isin(θ))2. This can then be simplified to cos2(θ) - sin2(θ) + 2cos(θ)(isin(θ)) as i= -1 by definition. Combining the right hand side and the left hand side gives: cos2(θ) - sin2(θ) + 2cos(θ)(isin(θ)) = cos(2θ)+isin(2θ) We can then equate real and imaginary parts of the equations to give: cos2(θ) - sin2(θ) = cos(2θ) and 2cos(θ)(isin(θ)) = isin(2θ), and therefore 2cos(θ)sin(θ) = sin(2θ).When dealing with complex numbers and trigonometric functions, always turn to DeMoivre's Theorem that states [cos(θ)+isin(θ)]n = [cos(nθ)+isin(nθ)].
