About me

Hi there! My name is Joe, and I'm a 3rd year veterinary medicine student, studying at the University of Nottingham!

I love animals, and I love science, so this was the perfect course for me! And so far, it's going great! I love that I can learn about really detailed biology (and some chemistry) and then apply it to situations I would use, which I think many courses would not do until the final years. I love doing things myself practically, so learning using our dogs, cats, cows and sheep is really useful for me!

My first few years at university have taught me lots of new ways to learn, some of which I thought would never be right for me. But I've been surprised how much more I can achieve when I try different ways to learn. I hope that, as your tutor, we can work together to find out in what ways you learn best, but maybe try some different ideas that you might find even more useful! 

Biology is my specialty, of course, but I also love history, chemistry, and most other subjects! So anything you need help with, I will be happy to work with you to get you achieving your goals. It's great seeing someone perform better than they thought they could, so I will be glad to help anyone who needs it!

Send me a message, and we can go from there :)

About my sessions

I think the most important first step will be getting to know each other, what our interests are, and what your goals are. After, we can look at why you would like some tutoring.

If you are stuck with a particular topic, we can first start from the beginning and go through the topic, making sure everything is well understood before carrying on. Once you're comfy with the topic, we can go back over it to get it in your head! It's always harder to remember something without understanding it first - understanding first, memory second!

If you understand a topic, but want to revise, we can go over the whole topic quickly. This will show us where you need more work to remember, and where you are already comfortable with. We will repeat things a few times to make sure it's in your head, whether it takes a little or long time.

At the beginning of each session, we should discuss how work has gone since the last. Then we can quickly go over it to make sure progress has been made, then start the next. Repetition is important!

It's important to get the most out of the hour, so if either I or you think something needs to be done differently, make sure to say, and we can make changes! We won't get it right first time, but if we keep improving things, we will find the right style of learning and teaching for us both.

After a lesson, giving me some feedback or leaving a star rating would be really helpful so that I know how to improve my teaching.

Questions Joe has answered

Briefly describe the structure and function of the respiratory system

Structure: The respiratory system starts at the mouth and nose with the pharynx, and continues as the trachea - this is covered with the epiglottis that prevents food and other material entering the lower airways. The trachea descends and branches into the two bronchi. These split further into bronchioles and finally air sacs called alveoli - these have very thin walls. Alongside all of these, capillaries run. Function: Gaseous exchange of oxygen and CO2. During inhalation, fresh air is taken into the lungs. This contains oxygen. The air enters the alveoli where is can easily diffuse across the thin walls into the nearby blood capillaries. Red blood cells uptake this oxygen and in return, carbon dioxide is removed from them. The CO2 enters the alveoli. During exhalation, the CO2 is breathed out of the body. The oxygen returns to the heart, carried on red blood cells, where it can be pumped round the body for use in respiration.Structure: The respiratory system starts at the mouth and nose with the pharynx, and continues as the trachea - this is covered with the epiglottis that prevents food and other material entering the lower airways.
