My name is Chris Bishop and I am a mathematician at Exeter College, Oxford. I am able to tutor the physical sciences, having achieved A*s at Maths, Further Maths and Physics, and an A at Chemistry. My university career so far has also improved my understanding of mathematics.
Having been through the Oxford application process, I will also be able to assist you in interviews, personal statements, or any other advice you may require leading into your application.
I would love to help you out in Maths, Physics and Chemistry at any level, be it pre-GCSE, GCSE or A level!

The integration by parts formula takes the form:
int(uv') = uv - int(vu')
where v' = dv/dx and u' = du/dx
A lot of the art of using the integration by parts is working out which part to differentiate and which part to integrate. I find that the most important thing to look at first is 'reducing the power', and making the second integral simpler. So I would recommend looking at differentiating anything of the form x^n, and avoiding differentiating sines, cosines, or exponentials. Other than that tip, integrating by parts is a process that just needs to be repeated until your answer pops out!
