About me

Hi my name is Lauren and I am currently a second year veterinary student at Cambridge University. I have been tutoring for several years now in Maths and Science at GCSE and A-level and find it incredibly rewarding to help students to master topics that they may be struggling with. I am friendly and approachable and students should be able to ask me any questions that they may feel embarrassed about asking in a classroom situation. If something is unclear it is always important to ask for clarification. I have a very flexible tutoring style and can accommodate to the individual needs of the student. I can help with specific exam questions or difficult topics or alternatively you can leave it entirely up to me to plan the session. I can also help with university applications including personal statements and interview practice. In my spare time I love to play sport and am a qualified ski instructor. I look forward to hearing from you!

Breathing consists of two phases called inhalation and exhalation.

Inhalation

In order for air to be drawn into the lungs during inhalation the volume of the thorax must increase. This is brought about due to the contraction of respiratory muscles. The diaphragm contracts and flattens and the intercostal muscles contract to pull the ribs up and out. The increased volume within the thoracic cavity lowers the pressure within the lungs with respect to the atmospheric pressure. Consequently, air is drawn into the lungs down a pressure gradient.

Exhalation

Inhalation is now complete and the next step is exhalation. The diaphragm relaxes and moves up and the relaxation of the intercostal muscles moves the ribs in and down. This has the effect of decreasing the volume within the thoracic cavity and increasing the pressure within the lungs with respect to atmospheric pressure. As a result, air moves out of the lungs down a pressure gradient.
