About me

I just finished my second year studying medicine at University College, London and am excited to enter my third year where I'll be taking up the integrated BSc subject of Oncology - the study of cancer. This year, I was president at one of UCL's biggest student societies and balanced that with one of the toughest year's in the study of medicine; I love to work hard and will give my all to ensure you produce the best possible outcome in whatever you're aiming to achieve, whether that be a 9 at GCSE, a grade 7 at IB, advice on getting into medical school (including personal statement, interview practice & UKCAT preparation) or even reviewing your IB Internal Assessments! Biology is fantastic, and a lot of it involves exploring how your own human body functions; I'll make sure you cover each point in your syllabus in depth as well as how to combat difficult exam questions...and if you don't love Biology already, you'll love it by the end of our tutoring sessions! I provide a very friendly approach and prepare lessons in depth according to how you'd like it to go, and what you'd like to learn. I look forward to meeting you very soon!

About my sessions

I spend a couple of hours preparing for each lesson, ensuring there is a great balance between giving you new information, interactive diagrams and answering exam questions. Everything I prepare revolves around you - I'll ask you at the end of each lesson what you'd like to learn in the following lesson, and I'll prepare according to that! During IB Biology lessons I will also integrate questions from a question-bank which I have spent 100s of hours developing through past papers and extensive research to ensure that you have the strongest possible understanding of the types of questions that you will have to tackle, as well as how to perfectly answer them to get those top marks according to the IB criterion. GCSE lessons also take a similar approach, using past questions to consolidate knowledge at the end of a lesson. We'll keep revisiting previous topics so that they're not forgotten and really ensure that you enjoy each lesson - studying doesn't have to be a chore, and the more you enjoy it the easier you'll find it!

Raghav is such an amazing tutor, especially for IB Biology HL. I had a couple of sessions regarding my IA and he has provided me with an in-depth feedback, which my teacher couldn't even provide. In addition to that, he takes his time to explain parts you don't fully understand and repeats it as much as it is needed to get his message across.

Questions Raghav has answered

Why does bread start to taste sweet after being chewed in the mouth for a long period of time?

[Hints given to student: (1) Bread contains starch, and (2) saliva mixes with your food when you are chewing].ANSWER: Bread contains the carbohydrate called 'starch', a molecule consisting of a chain of glucose molecules. Starch is broken down by the enzyme amylase to produce 'simple sugars'. Amylase, as well as being found in pancreatic fluid, is also found in saliva, therefore when you are chewing the bread, the amylase in saliva interacts with the starch in the bread, breaking it down to produce simple sugars - these simple sugars hence make the bread taste sweet.[Hints given to student: (1) Bread contains starch, and (2) saliva mixes with your food when you are chewing].ANSWER: Bread contains the carbohydrate called 'starch', a molecule consisting of a chain of glucose molecules.
