About me

I've just finished first year Undergraduate Medicine at the University of Birmingham which I have loved. Medicine is a challenging course but every part of it is stimulating so working through its challenges is something I really enjoy. I loved Biology as a student and it was the main reason why I wanted to further my knowledge of the human body by doing Medicine. Although there isn't much of Chemistry in my course currently, I loved the subject at both GCSE and A Level, which is why it's a subject I would like to tutor students in. I've also had experience tutoring students in both of these subjects during my time in Sixth Form and it was something I wanted to continue doing while I was at university too. My hobbies include Badminton and Dance, both of which I started from a young age and continue to practice at university.

About my sessions

In the first lesson, I would want to just gauge the student's current abilities and ask them which areas of the specification they feel they do well in and which parts they perhaps need more guidance in. Based on that, I would plan the next session, taking into account what the student feels is their weakest area. Once we have both decided on a topic, I'd ask them which parts of that topic in particular they struggle with and then in my own time, plan the lesson according to that. At the end of the session I'll ask if the student feels comfortable with what we've done or whether we need to have another session going over it. If the student feels comfortable, I'd also want to ask them a few questions to test their understanding before moving on to the next topic.

Sai is an excellent tutor. She is patient and asks questions during the lesson to make sure that you understand the content. She recaps things you learnt from previous lessons to make sure that you remember. If you struggle with exam questions she will be sure to help you understand how to get the right answer. I would honestly recommend having her as a tutor.

Questions Sai Harshita has answered

What are the non-specific defence systems of the body against pathogens?

There are four main non-specific defence systems, all of which are immediate and the same for all pathogens (hence 'non-specific).1) skin: it acts as a primary defence mechanism as the dry, dead cells on the surface of the skin act as a barrier to prevent pathogens from entering the body. 2) nose: contains nasal hairs which work to keep away large microbes.3) trachea and bronchial system: contain cilia which are long, fingerlike projections that emerge from the cells on the walls of the respiratory tracts. Mucus in the tracts trap pathogens and this pathogen-filled mucus is then brushed away by the cilia.4) stomach: it contains hydrochloric acid which destroys the pathogens if they enter due to its acidic nature.5) tears: our tears contain the enzyme lysozyme which is breaks down harmful microbes.
