Hello, I am a medical student at Cambridge University. I am in my 4th year, having finished a BA in Natural Sciences (with a focus on Neuroscience). I did Physics, Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics at A level, with an AS in Further Mathematics receiving A*A*AAa. I also achieved 15A*s and 1A at GCSE, the highest ranked results in the country that year.
I have tutored students in lower years at school, as well as family, and am hoping to expand my experience through online tutoring. I am calm, patient, organised and work well with young people, as my medical degree requires.
I've always found that the best way to approach learning is to be as interactive as possible. Following explanation, I aim to have students explain their understanding of the topic back to me, or work through model questions out loud, to ensure they have fully understood my teaching.
With regard to my teaching, I like to use various techniques, such as diagrams, past paper questions, or even animated videos, to ensure that are lessons are not dull, and each topic is explained thoroughly. Through use of multiple different methods of teaching, I will aim to aim find one that best suits you.
I also provide summarised notes for each topic we cover, to allow you to revise a topic alone, after we go over it together.
Before each session I would like to hear from you, to discuss what we need to cover; having a comprehensive of idea of your strengths and weaknesses will allow me to target key areas in which you may need help.
If you have any questions, or would like to organise session, please end me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'. Please let me know any of the areas you may need help with; for applications, information about the universities, or course, you are applying to is helpful, and for subject tutoring, I will need to know which syllabus you follow. I hope to hear from you soon!

Immunity is the ability for the body to respond to familiar pathogens so quickly that they are not able to cause a physical disease, meaning we can be infected for a short period of time, and not notice. To do this the body needs to be able to recognise pathogens that have previously infected us. This is achieved by ‘lymphocytes’, a particular kind of white blood cell, that recognise ‘antigens’; these are markers on pathogens that allow the body to identify them. Each lymphocyte will produce a specific type of antibody: proteins that bind to antigens and damage/ destroy them. Some lymphocytes become dormant after an infection (they do not actively produce antibodies), and can be reactivated by infection by pathogens marked by antigens that they produce antibodies to. This allows the body to react quickly to any repeat infections i.e. become immune.see more
