About me

Hello! I'm Reeshma and I offer tutoring in a variety of subjects: Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, 11+ and UKCAT/BMAT admission tests. I can cover both GCSE and A-level content and for any board, though I have most experience with AQA for the sciences and Edexcel for Mathematics.

Regarding 11+ tutoring, I have experience tutoring my younger brother and sister, who are both presently studying at grammar schools. I also scored relatively highly on UKCAT/BMAT tests and am prepared to share my wisdom to tutees as I know what the problematic areas are and the best ways to tackle them.

I am currently studying Medicine and hence still very familiar with many of the concepts from A-level Biology and Chemistry, as much of what I study stems from knowledge acquired from GCSE and A-level Sciences. I am extremely enthusiastic about Medicine and the human body is one of my most profound fascinations, and I believe I can convey my enthusiasm for education through my lessons. In sixth form, I was a peer mentor and I often had to help students struggling with their subjects, and so have a plethora of knowledge on efficient methods to overcome revision and learning issues; furthermore, I am quite an active and independent learner and have trialled many different studying techniques and can tailor my lesson to the tutees preferences, e.g. usage of more pictures for visual learners and more spoken explanations for aural learners.

About my sessions

In most instances, tutees will have different learning styles and issues, so need to have lessons tailored to their preferences. However, generally I will begin each session by asking the student what it is they are struggling with or want to go through and then prepare lesson plans for that session and future ones. I also understand that different boards have different exam specifications, so will ensure that whatever I teach will be relevant to the tutee's exact course. Examples of lessons could be doing a full past paper together, working on answering exam questions correctly, explaining theories etc. Moreover, I have access to many of the detailed notes and revision material I used when I was a student, which I could share with the tutee to aid studying and understanding of scientific/mathematic concepts.

Questions Reeshma has answered

What makes water a polar molecule?

Water has a partial negative (𝛿-) charge on one side and a partial positive (𝛿 +) charge on the other. These partial charges arise as water (H20) is composed of one atom of oxygen (O) joined to two atoms of hydrogen (H2) by shared electrons aka covalent bonding; the shared negative hydrogen electrons are pulled towards the oxygen atom, which is more electronegative than hydrogen, so the other side of each hydrogen atom is left with a slight positive charge. The unshared negative electrons on the oxygen atom give it a slight negative charge. [Electronegativity is a measure of the tendency of an atom to attract a bonding pair of electrons, and oxygen is better than hydrogen at attracting electrons, because it has more positively charged protons in its nucleus]Water has a partial negative (𝛿-) charge on one side and a partial positive (𝛿 +) charge on the other.
