Degree: Medicine (Bachelors) - Manchester University
Hello! I'm Sherrie, a 23 year old medical student at Manchester Medical School. During my time at medical school I also took a year out to study Pathology BSc (Hons) and got a first.
I am eager to help students to reach their full potential. Having revised for what seems like an endless stream of exams, my revision technique is excellent and I'd love to pass that on to younger students. I studied Biology, Chemistry and English Literature up to A Level. Of note, I achieved almost 100% in both my Biology GCSE and A Level.
I have gained experience in teaching through a number of different ways:
- Excellent presentation skills gained throughout my course - teaching to my peers and at conferences
- Peer mentor during my second year
- Involved in 'Medics in Primary Schools'; teaching basic science to primary school children
- My course is based on problem based learning, so every week we teach each other through different methods, and I have a sound knowledge of how to help students tackle problems
If you're applying to medical school, I scored a high score in the UKCAT and was interviewed and accepted to 3 medical schools. I am eager to share my top tips on how to get there!
My sessions will focus on what you need, and I will adapt to whatever teaching style you prefer.
Feel free to request a meet the tutor session or send me a webmail if you have any questions. If you'd like to send me a topic you are currently struggling with before the session, I'd be happy to quickly run through it so you can get a good idea of how the sessions will work, and of the amazing facilities the classroom has.
Looking forward to hearing from you!!

Different parts of the body have very different functions, so it is important that the cells in these different parts have adapted in order to help the functioning to be more efficient.
For example, red blood cells are shaped as a biconcave disc (indented on each side), which means that they are able to bend and squeeze through smaller vessels in the body. They also don't have a nucleus, so they have more space for haemoglobin and therefore more space for oxygen, which attaches to the haemoglobin. Overall, this means that red blood cells are very well adapted to transporting oxygen to distant organs.
Another example is ciliated cells. Cilliated cells have tiny 'hairs' along their surface, which are able to push mucous along. Ciliated cells line the lungs, which is why if you have a bad chest infection you are able to cough up phlegm, or mucous, which helps to get rid of bacteria.see more
