About me

Hi, I'm Nivi.

Below is a summary of my background and experience.

 

Qualifications:

I have graduated with a 1st class in Medical engineering (MEng) at Queen Mary University of London. I am currently a 3rd year PhD Student in Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine at the University of Leeds.

 

A bit about my background:

I had moved to the UK in 2002 from Germany at the age of 13.

 

Teaching Experience:

Kumon Centre

I have taught during my previous work experience in a primary school, and also worked at Kumon Educational Centre for three years. Kumon Educational is known as the ‘largest supplementary education provider’ in the UK, focusing on educating Mathematics and English to children of all ages and abilities. Whilst working at Kumon Educational, I had to ensure each child fulfilled their potential and targets set out for them. 

It was a great opportunity to witness children developing over the months with the help and support provided at the centre. My passion for education and teaching grew with my experience at Kumon Educational. 

German

I also had volunteered to tutor German on a one to one basis over four years. 

 

Session:

It is important to keep the sessions highly interactive and engaging.

Individual goals will be set out once the level of understanding and difficulties in the subject are thoroughly discussed.

The needs for each student may vary and it is important to address these accordingly such that targets are met. 

Accurate and thorough feedback on homework/coursework etc will be given such that the student has ways to improve and learn. Students' work will be checked each session, and occasional tests will be conducted to see where improvements can be made. 

Additionally, exam preparation for German oral practice will also be provided. Students will be made to feel confident in the subjects I'm offering to teach and encouragement will be given to each student to ensure they reach their full potential.

 

Availability:

I'm mostly free in the evenings; however I'm happy to arrange a convenient time that suits you best, wherever possible.

Please contact me for a free introductory session or a tutorial.

Hoping to hear from you soon :-)

Very knowledgable and friendly. Topic explained very well. We had a very bad connection though, but I don´t know if that is on our side since we are in Spain, and we need to reschedule tutorial.

How to solve a simple simultaneous equation

Solving simultaneous equations:

 

Example Question:

Equation 1 --->          2y – 4x = 2

Equation 2 --->          4y – 6x = 10

 

Find the unknown quantities, x and y.

 

Solution:

Step 1: Firstly check whether there are more than 2 unknowns in the given question.

If there are more unknowns than given equations – the problem cannot be solved.

 

Step 2: Eliminate one unknown quantity by rearranging one of the equations such that x terms are on one side and the y terms are on the other side

Rearraging Equation 1:          y = 1 +2x     --->  (Equation 3)

 

Step 3: Substitute y (equation 3) into equation 2 - such that only one unknown quantity exists within the equation:

4y – 6x = 10

4 ( 1 + 2x) – 6x = 10

Expanding the above --->  4 + 8x – 6x =  10

 

Step 4: Bring x terms onto one side and numbers onto the other side:

8x - 6x = 10 - 4

2x = 6;

therefore x = 6/2=3

x=3

 

Step 5: Substitute x =3 into equation 1 or 2 to find the value of y

In this case, Equation 1 is chosen

2y – 4x = 2

2y – 4(3) = 2

2y – 12 = 2

2y=14

y= 7

 

Final Answer: x=3; y=7

What is the difference in pronouncing 'ß' and 'ss'?

'ß' - examples: Spaß; groß - the vowel before the ß, is pronounced longer    'ss' - examples: essen, Kasse, Russland, vergessen, besser - The vowel before the 'ss' is pronounced shorter   It is also known that Diphthong (ei, au, ie, eu) are prounced longer (e.g. außerdem, genießen)    ...

'ß'

- examples: Spaß; groß

- the vowel before the ß, is pronounced longer 

 

'ss'

- examples: essen, Kasse, Russland, vergessen, besser

- The vowel before the 'ss' is pronounced shorter

 

It is also known that Diphthong (ei, au, ie, eu) are prounced longer

(e.g. außerdem, genießen)

 

 

Beware: It is important to note that these sounds may be similar to already existing letters such as 's'. Hence this rule may not help to choose between 's' and 'ss' and/or ß.

These rules are mainly applied in Germany. In Switzerland, these may vary.
