About me

I am a confident and diligent person who enjoys communicating and working within a team to find the best possible outcome for the student. I have a strong background in tutoring, and have worked within voluntary roles which aid those who require assistance with their studies, enabling me to be work efficiently with the student and pick up the way they operate.I am enthusiastic, selfmotivated and committed to my work, and will ensure that the students has the most effective teaching of the required subject that I can give.

Along side tutoring, I take part in numerous activities ranging for football to amateur dramatics. Sporting activities have always been a key part of my life, and I have been fortunate to represent clubs at a high level. Having played for Luton Town and Stevenage Borough football academies, I was fortunate in being picked for the Independent schools England squad and South East of England teams in 2013. Both sport and
drama display my commitment, as training and rehearsals require focus and dedication.
Additionally, I have a passion for volunteering, and have volunteered at Headway in Bedford. Headway is a day centre which provides rehabilitation courses for those suffering with brain injuries, with many suffering from strokes. As well as Headway, I have raised over £1000 for the Mental Health foundation and in April 2016 will be running the London Marathon in aid of the Alzheimer's society.

During each tutoring session, you are the boss, and you will tell me what you need assistance with. I want to grasp an idea of what you know, and we can tailor your knowledge to answering the tough exam questions. Often, the knowledge is present, it's just a case of applying what you know!

I will use methods including diagrams, anologies and even songs to ensure you understand each and every concept you are required to know. I will then test you and ensure that you are confident in explaining what you have learnt to me, friends, family and of course the examiners!

Describe the role of lipids.

Lipids are a great energy reserve in both plants and animals.  This is due to the greater number of carbon-hydrogen bonds present in comparison to carbohydrates. It also acts as an insulator against heat loss, and can provide protection for delicated organs such as the kidneys, due to it bei...

Lipids are a great energy reserve in both plants and animals
This is due to the greater number of carbon-hydrogen bonds present in comparison to carbohydrates.

It also acts as an insulator against heat loss, and can provide protection for delicated organs such as the kidneys, due to it being stored around them. 

Finally, lipids are insoluble in water and are important in land organisms such as insects, where the waxy cuticle is crucial in reducing water loss.

What are the stages of mitosis?

Mitosis consists of four basic phases.

1. Prophase

2. Metaphase

3. Anaphase

4. Telophase

It is a common mistake to believe that interphase is part of mitosis. In fact, interphase is just a preparation stage for mitosis, and so is NOT part of mitosis.

I use PEOPLE, MEET, AND, TALK to help me remember the order of each stage.

Prophase, is the shortening and thickening of the chromosomes from chromatin. During late prophase, the centrioles move to opposite ends of the nucleus, called the poles. The nucleolus disappears and the nuclear membrane disintegrates.

Metaphase sees the chromosomes lining up along the equator, and being attached to the centrioles via the spindle produced. This spindle is attached to the chromosomes centromeres. 

Anaphase is the splitting of the chromosomes into chromatids. These are pulled to oppsit poles by the spindle. 

Telophase is the reformation of the nuclear membrane, to form two cells. Cytokinesis follows, which splits the cell into two daughter cells.

PRIMARY PROTEIN STRUCTURE

This is the sequence of amino acids in a polypeptide chain. These are bonded together by strong covalent bonds

SECONDARY PROTEIN STRUCTURE

The secondary structure is the shape that the polypeptide chain forms as a result of hydrogen bonding. Hydrogen bonds can only form between nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen and flourine.

These bonds form spiral shapes called alpha helicles or beta pleated sheets.

TERTIARY STRUCTURE

This is the folding of the secondary structure to form a complex 3 dimensional structure. This is achieved by the following bonding:

1. Disulphide bonds

2. Ionic bonds

3. Hydrogen bonds
