About me

I am studying Psychology at the University of Bath, and I am also taking several modules in Biology. This combination is perfect for me as I love science and am interested in understanding the links between these two fields, specifically in research. This passion is what enables me to tutor with energy and enthusiasm, as I strive to ensure students not only understand their course material, but actually enjoy learning about it. I studied the IB and therefore have focused on many subjects, which means I can easily resonate with students and their stresses, and also I can focus sessions in a way to reduce this stress and ensure the key information is conveyed.

About my sessions

I believe the key element in a session is preparation, therefore before a session I will always plan out the information which will be covered, making sure it is relevant and focused on the course/exam content. Additionally, it is important to be flexible with a students needs, for example if a student decides they prefer a specific teaching style i can definitely tailor my sessions for them. I also believe a key benefit is testing, this sounds dreary however even a small test at the end of each session ensures students are focused and reminded of the key essential facts. Additionally, testing through real exam questions helps to lessen students fear and apprehension for any oncoming exams.

Questions Isabella has answered

Draw and label an animal cell as seen under an electron microscope.

Now the first thing to point out when looking at images under an electron microscope is the scale. For example, something that you draw as 3cm long, may in fact be 10, 000 times smaller in real life. So it is important to note that what we are drawing is definitely not life size. So, lets begin by drawing a rough-oval shape, however this shape does not need to be precise or specific. After this, add another oval shape outside the line you just drew, and this will make the cell membrane to your animal cell. The cell membrane is what controls the entry and exit of any substances that the cell needs to use or to dispose of. It is called semi-permeable, which means that only some substances can pass through it. Next we will draw the Nucleus, which contains the cell's DNA and therefore controls most of its activity. As seen on the whiteboard, the nucleus is a sphere shape, with a smaller circle inside as well. Close to the nucleus, we can draw our ribosomes. These are very small spherical structures which are involved in making proteins, and can be found 'free' or 'attached' to a structure as seen on the whiteboard. Next, we will draw the mitochondria, which are vital organelles because respiration occurs here, and therefore are typically called the 'powerhouse' of the cell. When drawing these structures, you will only need to draw around 2/3 but in fact there would be many more in a real cell. Begin by drawing a small oval shape, and then add a shape inside with many crevices, as seen on the whiteboard. The 'empty' space in the cell is called the cytoplasm, and is actually a jelly-like substance, where the cell's chemical reactions take place.Now the first thing to point out when looking at images under an electron microscope is the scale.
