Degree: Medicine (Bachelors) - University College London University
My name is Vignesh, and I am currently a medical student at UCL. Teaching is one of my passions and I find it very enjoyable to see a person proper and gain understanding. I have been tutoring fellow peers, younger students and family friends for over 6 years now, and have a lot of experience in teaching. I have a very positive way of teaching and hope to assist you in your goals!
My Teaching style:
I'm a very light hearted person, and my lessons are fun, but I put a lot of focus in my teaching on the understanding of a concept. It is my firm belief that if you can understand something fully, you will be able to apply it and manipulate the knowledge in exams and in life.
Why should I tutor you?
I have excellent knowledge in my subjects, having obtained A*s in all of them at A Level. I am also the highest ranked medical undergraduate at UCL for Year 1. On top of that, I have had roles like Deputy Head Boy, President of School Council, and President of Interact Charity at my high school, so I am very good at motivating and inspiring others!
I sincerely hope you will consider me for your tutoring and hope to bring the best out of you in the near future!

Oxygen is a critical component of Aerobic respiration in many animals. The reason why oxygen is so important is because it plays a crucial role in the mitochondria, the powerhouses of the cell. The mitochondria has two membranes. On the inner membrane, 4 groups of protein form the Electron Transport Chain. Electrons are donated from molecules like NADH and FADH2 from Glycolysis and the KREBS Cycle,and pass through the ETC. The movement of electrons pumps protons from the matrix into the intermembrane space of the mitochondrion, creating a concentration gradient. The protons can pass down their conc. gradient back into the matrix via ATP Synthase, and this is what supplies energy to form ATP, the energy carrier. So where does O2 fit in? Well O2 is what DRIVES the ETC! O2 accepts electrons from the final carrier protein, and becomes H2O and this creates a gradient through which the electrons can flow. Think of O2 like a hoover, that gobbles up electrons. So long as O2 is present, there will be MOVEMENT of electrons through the ETC. If O2 is not present, the ETC will cease to function, protons will not be pumped into IMS and ATP synthase cannot function, leading to reduced ATP synthesis! :(see more
