About me

Hi, my name is Sarah and I have graduated with a degree in Biology at the University of York. 

Why I want to tutor - I really enjoyed studying Biology for GCSE and ALevel, especially due to great teachers I had during this time. I hope to pass on my enthusiasm and knowledge, with revision techniques and methods I was taught to help Biology students achieve really great grades.

How I plan to tutor- I will always have a plan of the tutorial session, and try and include quizzes and any interesting videos on the topic. I will do my best to answer all the questions and explain as best as I can.

Experience I've had- During my time in 6th form I helped out in a younger years science class, helping with experiments and any questions. 

Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon!

About my sessions

I like to have a clear plan of what the student would like to learn in the session so I can plan and prepare resources so you can get the most out of the session. 

Asking how best the student learns means that i can plan resources so if you like diagrams, practice questions or written information, we can both work together to make the sessions are useful to you!

Questions Sarah has answered

How is the DNA prepared for it to be replicated?

The preparation occurs to the DNA whilst in the nucleus of the cell.

As DNA is a double helix, the two strands of DNA need to be split apart. Therefore the hydrogen bonds need to be broken. The DNA helicase is the enzyme needed for these bonds to break. 
Then the two strands are separated for the replication process to continue.

What is the difference between primary and secondary succession?

Primary succession starts from bare rock, so no soil is present at the start. Over time the pioneer organisms (such as moss and lichen) break the rock and as the organisms die and decompose, the soil builds up. 

Secondary succession occurs when in an environment which had a little soil already. It happens when the previous community is lost, such as due to a forest fire
