About me

As an enthusiastic, positive and patient individual, I am excited to teach and help others with subjects I find enjoyable.

I provide help in A level geography and psychology (specifically OCR), triple science GCSE and help with writing dreaded personal statements!

I have vast experience in tutoring GCSE students, helping sixth formers with personal statements and mentoring in schools and have learnt many methods of providing simple, concise explanations for difficult topics.

Having worked with Brownies and Guides, I am very patient and happy to explain things in many different ways until topics are completely understood.

Sessions with me will be fun, engaging and motivational through the use of video tutorials, quizzes and interactive tutorials.

I also put time into the work outside of sessions to further research any extra difficult or time consuming topics!

I cannot wait to get started and look forward to meeting you very soon!

What is the difference between a gene, a chromosome and DNA?

Genes, chromosomes and DNA are three vital components of cells and many students often confuse them with each other. DNA stands for Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid. DNA molecules contain the genetic code which is made from a sequence of amino acids. The genetic code is unique for each person. Genes...

Genes, chromosomes and DNA are three vital components of cells and many students often confuse them with each other.

DNA stands for Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid. DNA molecules contain the genetic code which is made from a sequence of amino acids. The genetic code is unique for each person.

Genes are short sections of DNA. Each gene (short DNA section) contains a code for a specific sequence of amino acids that codes for a specific protein in the body.

Chromosomes are made from DNA molecules and are found in the cell nucleus.

The biological and behavioural views of psychology allow for two different approaches to studying the subject and often link to the nature-nurture debate.

The biological psychological approach is linked with the nature side of the nature-nurture debate. The approach assumes that all behaviour (whether human or animal) is driven by genetics and a person’s biological / chemical composition. It assumes that the environment cannot change your behaviour and that your actions, decisions and the way you live can be traced back to stemming from your parents, from which you inherited your genes.

In contrast, the behavioural approach assumes that our behaviour is a product of our interaction with the environment. It assumes that as babies we are born as a blank slate and from this moment on are shaped and influenced by the people and environment surrounding us. Hence the approach takes the nurture side of the nature-nurture debate. In contrast to the biological approach, the behavioural approach assumes that our behaviour is determined by the environment in which we find ourselves, for example, we may act differently in front of teachers at school, compared to when we are with our friends.

The two approaches can be investigated by looking at identical twins that have been either raised together or raised apart after being separated at birth.

The biological approach would assume that twins would behave and be exactly the same as each other whether they had been raised together or apart, whereas the behavioural approach would assume that the twins reared apart would behave differently to each other, due to their different surroundings.

With respect to sea level change, what is the difference between eustacy and isostasy?

Eustacy and isostasy are ways of describing relative sea level change which is a measure of changes in the level (height) of the sea, relative to the land. Eustatic sea level change describes a change in the volume of the sea in ocean basins. This is caused by either a change in the amount of ...

Eustacy and isostasy are ways of describing relative sea level change which is a measure of changes in the level (height) of the sea, relative to the land.

Eustatic sea level change describes a change in the volume of the sea in ocean basins. This is caused by either a change in the amount of water in the basins (for example, an addition of water from melting ice sheets) or by a change in the size of the ocean basins (such the formation of new continental crust, reducing the capacity of the basins).

Eustatic change causes a global rise or fall in sea level.

Isostatic sea level change occurs due to the movement of the land in relation to the sea in specific areas and hence causes a local change in sea level. Isostasy is a process by which the Earth’s crust attempts to reach an equilibrium balance with the mantle it is floating on. Hence isostatic sea level change occurs when the Earth’s crust rises of falls relative to the sea, often due to an increase or decrease of mass on top of the crust.

For example, during an ice age, the crust becomes heavier due to the mass of ice on top of it, and sinks into the mantle to remain buoyant and in equilibrium, leading to an apparent increase in sea level relative to the land.

When measuring change in sea level, both isostatic and eustatic sea level changes must be taken into consideration to measure the total amount of change.
