Explained very well, gave some very good practice questions and I learnt a lot more than I already knew. Great tutor!

Questions Nicky has answered

How do I find the root of a quadratic equation?

Usually the easiest way to find the root of a quadratic is to factorise it so you have something a form similar to - (x+2)(x-1)=0. From here you need to find a value for x that makes each bracket equal to zero. Here we can see our answers are x = 1 and x = -2. If the equation cannot be factor...

Usually the easiest way to find the root of a quadratic is to factorise it so you have something a form similar to - (x+2)(x-1)=0.

From here you need to find a value for x that makes each bracket equal to zero. Here we can see our answers are x = 1 and x = -2.

If the equation cannot be factorised our backup method that is slightly more complicated but always correct is to use the quadratic equation. 

This is given as x = (-b ± (b2-4ac)1/2)/2a,

Where a, b and c come from your original quadratic as ax2+bx+c.

When should I use the preterite and the imperfect form of the past tense?

In general the preterite is used when something has been completed. If an action has a definite start and end then you should be using the preterite, this can be both if it is something that happened once or if it is something that was repeated a specific number of times.  For example - Ayer,...

In general the preterite is used when something has been completed. If an action has a definite start and end then you should be using the preterite, this can be both if it is something that happened once or if it is something that was repeated a specific number of times. 

For example - Ayer, fue al cine. (Yesterday, he went to the cinema) 

Me llamó dos veces. (He called me twice)

The imperfect is used when you don't have a definite end point. This could be something that happened generally in the past or something that has not yet been completed. It is also used often as a way of setting up the use of another past tense. 

For example - Cuando era niño, tuve un fútbol. (When I was a child, I had a football)

Yo estaba hablando cuando tosía. (I was talking when he coughed)
