About me

I am a first year Cardiff medical student. I absolutely loved studying science at school, especially biology, and partaking in self-directed projects such as the EPQ. I enjoy both the practical elements of sciences and medicine, such as dissections and patient contact, as well as the scientific elements, such as the functions of the endocrine and neuronal systems.


I have been both a tutor and mentor for 4 years for over 20 students as well as being a tutee and mentee. Being on both sides of the playing field, I have been able to learn and experience the variety of techniques used in tutoring as well as discovering the most efficient methods.


I hope to help you identify any areas of weakness, gaps of knowledge and general concerns you may have. I hope to aid you both in understanding key concepts and developing self-directed learning skills. I hope to aid you with the building exam technique skills to elevate your overall grade.

About my sessions

For tutoring: Each session will begin with your priorities. I will listen first to any particular questions you have, sections you desire to focus on and questions you would like to look over. This will be followed by a general overview to cover any gaps in knowledge. Within this overview, in-depth detail will be added where needed to build your understanding on any areas you are struggling with.


Lastly, each lesson will end with going through some exam questions, through which will highlight any key exam technique or patterns to aid you answering similar questions in the future. On request, I am able to send you questions to look through during the week.


For mentorship on the EPQ, personal statements or medical school related admissions: Each session will accommodate your focal point. This can either be a mentorship session, by which we can work through a task together (such as a section of your EPQ or personal statement) allowing for any questions to be asked and verbal feedback given. This can also be a written session, by which I will proof read your personal statements or EPQ essay and give written feedback or make any adjustments.

Questions Kimberley has answered

How does the adrenaline hormone cause the conversion of glycogen to glucose?

This can best be described as the second messenger model. Adrenaline is a hydrophillic hormone so it only acts on receptors on the cell surface membranes. The hormone fuses to the receptor site which then activates the release of an enzyme called adenyl cyclase. This enzyme helps convert ATP to cyclic AMP (cAMP).cAMP behaves as the second messenger. An increase in cAMP levels activates specific enzymes called protein kinases which then phosphorylate and active other key enzymes, such as digestive enzymes. These all work together to convert (break down) glycogen to glucose.The second messenger model is a model regularly seen throughout human biology in various processes, mostly including the use of hydrophillic hormones.This can best be described as the second messenger model.
