About me

About Myself

Hi, I am Laurence and I study medicine at The University of Glasgow. At school I achieved straight A's, consistently achieving the best marks in my year for Biology and Chemistry.  Outside of my studies I enjoy going to the gym and I have an active social life. I also play the flute and violin to grade 8 standard. 

My Teaching experience

In my last year of school I tutored in a first year science class 10 hours a week. I thoroughly enjoyed this and was praised by the teacher I was helping for my ability to explain concepts to students. I have also gained skills in teaching through peer-to-peer learning which is a key aspect of my course. Through this I also have developed multiple different ways of explaining information, as everybody understands concepts in different ways.

The Sessions

During each session I will ask the student what he/she has difficulty with. We will then work through the difficulty by me explaining the idea in an understandable way. Then we will move onto ways to remember the concept i.e. drawing diagrams, answering questions and creating mnemonics. After this we will revisit information covered in previous sessions, to show the student what he/she needs to revise again. I will also advise the student on various applications and websites to use for revision purposes. Once the student has a grasp of the curriculum then we will move onto sessions focused on past paper questions. Any question that the student does not understand will be worked through in a logical fashion ensuring he/she knows how to tackle it in the future. However if the student would like a different format of session then I will change it to the student's needs.

Medical School Applications

I would also be able to give students advice on getting into medical school. Having managed to obtain a space in a medical school I know the difficulty that applicants face. I can provide personal statement and interview advice.

Finally

If you are interested in being tutored by me please send me an email and we can arrange a free meet the tutor session.

Questions Laurence has answered

Describe blood supply to the liver?

The liver is supplied by the hepatic artery bringing oxygenated blood to it. The liver is also supplied by the hepatic portal vein. This brings the absorbed nutrients from the small and large intestine to the liver for processing. Blood is drained from the liver via the hepatic vein which joins into the inferior vena cava.

Difference between prokaryote and eukaryote?

Prokaryotes do not have a membrane bound nucleus, eukaryotes do.

Prokaryotes have plasmids.

Prokaryotes have smalled ribosomes than eukaryotes.

Eukaryotes have more organelles than prokaryotes. I.e. eukaryotes have mitochondria, golgi, RER, SER which the prokaryotes do not.

What is a zymogen giving reference to an example?

A zymogen is the inactive form of an enzyme. For instance the enzyme pepsinogen is produced by chief cells in the gastric pits. Pepsinogen is a zymogen. Hydrochloric acid produced by the parietal cells of the gastric pit work to cleave a peptide bond forming pepsin, which can now work to digest proteins in the stomach.
