About me

My name is Tory and I have just graduated with a first class honours degree in Physiology at The University of Liverpool. I am now studying Medicine at University of East Anglia to further my knowledge of the human body and disease and put all this into clinical practice!

I’m very approachable and particularly good at explaining hard concepts in basic terms. I taught children at Sunday school to develop their reading, writing and understanding of the Hebrew language. Also, during my sixth form studies, ran many experiments with prospective A-level biology students in the hope of enthusing them in the field of science. As a Chemistry prefect at school, my responsibilities included one on one tutoring of students in Biology and Chemistry. In my free time, I enjoy watching and performing musical theatre, baking goodies for family and friends and I volunteer in a hospital caring for patients.

P.S. Thank you to all my tutees for the kind words you've sent me about your amazing exam results this summer, well done and good luck in the future!

About my sessions

As a former tutee on myTutor, I know how helpful sessions with an older student can be, I know how the system works and I am very familiar with the software. I believe that the best way to learn or revise is specific to each student and it is important to understand that not every student will ‘click’ straight away with every topic… Not to worry! Our tutorial sessions will be based around the needs of the student; my job will be to guide you through the steps to reach a correct answer. I’m not going to do your homework or your exams for you, rather I will give you the knowledge for you to apply. At the end of our sessions on a specific topic, we will consolidate basic principles by applying them to practice exam questions.

Tori has been a really great maths tutor, i basically passed maths because of her. She helped me understand maths a bit better and revealed different ways in which i could solve problems. I really do thank her for everything shes's done!

Questions Victoria has answered

What is the Hardy-Weinberg Principle and how can I use the equation to help answer exam questions?

The Hardy-Weinberg principle is a mathematical model that predicts the frequencies of alleles in a population that won't change from one generation to the next. 

There are certain conditions that must be met by the population for Hardy-Weinberg to work 

e.g. There must be random mating amongst the population

e.g. There must be no immigration or emigration in and out of the population.

p2 + 2pq + q= 1

..where p= the frequency of the dominant allele

q= the frequency of the recessive allele

[p2 = frequency of homozygous dominant genotype]

[2pq = frequency of heterozygous genotype]

[q2 = frequency of homozygous recessive genotype]

Using this equation, you can input known values of frequency of alleles or of genotype to find the frequency of genotype of another category of the population.
