About me

About me:

The bottom line: I study Mathematics and Physics at one of the best universities in the world. I want to pass on my passion to you!

Hi there, my name is Daniel. I’m currently undertaking a Master’s Degree in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Oxford, having recently completed my BSc in Mathematics there. Studying at such a prestigious university has allowed me to further develop my passion and flare for Mathematics, which I am keen to pass on to my students.   

My Experience:

The bottom line: I’ve been doing this for a very long time and I’m very good at helping students unlock their full potential.

I have been conducting one-to-one tuition for several years now and have worked with a wide variety of students from different backgrounds and with different aims. My tutoring experience ranges from University level Mathematics and Physics through to A-level and GCSE sciences. I  currently tutor all levels of Mathematics and Physics -  The areas which have always been my greatest passion. My aim is to pass on that passion as well as helping you achieve the top grades you deserve.

I have lots of experience marking essays and exam papers for my students and always deliver thorough and useful feedback. I am very keen to assist students with the Oxbridge interview and application process - having been through this process myself, I know what a daunting and confusing experience it can be and also how much difference it makes to be well prepared! I have also attended and helped out at several Mathematics summer schools, this means I have a working knowledge of university applications and am ready to pass on that knowledge to you!

It is never too early to start preparing your university application!

Aside from my academic commitments, I have been (and currently am!) Involved in active and exciting research. This means I have been fortunate enough to have the privilege of working with leading experts on the cutting edge of Mathematics and Physics. This has allowed me to gain many transferable skills as well as meaning I can provide useful and dynamic examples of where the material we are studying can be applied in the real world.  

The sessions:

The bottom line: Every student is unique and as such, so is every tutorial. I am eager to tailor my lessons to suit your needs.

No two students are the same, having worked with such a large variety of different people, I have gained a lot of experience in adapting my sessions to suit individual needs. I am more than happy to give you a broad, but deep, understanding of an entire course, or really focus on one specific area. What is important to me is that you come away from every session feeling as though you have got the most out of it that you possibly could and that this helps you to do as well as you possibly can.

One specific area in which my tutoring method has been very successful in the past is that I can provide my own problem sheets and worked examples. Having been tutoring for a very long time, I have amassed a large collection of resources which I have used for teaching, these range from basic examples in all subject areas through to challenging and stretching questions designed to test the very top level of the syllabus.

I am also more than happy to look at and mark work done by my students, including feedback on past papers and essays / personal statements.

Questions:

The bottom line: If there is anything else you’d like to know, please ask! I’d love to hear from you!

Hopefully this answers any questions you might have about who I am, what I do and how I can help you! If there is anything at all I can do to help or be of assistance, please do send me a webmail and book a ‘Meet the tutor session’. I’ll do my very best to get back to you as quickly as possible.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

What is the derivative of x^x

Firstly we should notice the similarities between this expression and expressions of the standard type ax.  To deal with this type of expression, we take logarithms of both sides and then apply the usual rules of differentiation. Let's try that here: 1.) y = xx   take logs of both sides and ...

Firstly we should notice the similarities between this expression and expressions of the standard type ax. 

To deal with this type of expression, we take logarithms of both sides and then apply the usual rules of differentiation. Let's try that here:

1.) y = x 

take logs of both sides and use the multiplicative law of logarithms 

2.) log(y) = x*log(x)

now use the chain rule on the LHS and the product rule on the RHS

3.) dy/dx * 1/y = 1 + log(x)

now simply rearrange to find dy/dx

4.) dy/dx = x*log(x)*(1+log(x))
