About me

About myself:

I am a Literature, Psychology and Philosophy student at Durham University and I am more than happy to help you with your studies at school. I am approachable and understanding so I encourage you to ask questions! Remember it is ok to feel lost at times and this is exactly why I am here to help you. I am fluent in Greek and Russian and I can guide you through the grammar, expressions or even cultures of these countries.

During the sessions:

In each session YOU will determine what area of the subject you wish to go over and we will work towards a goal that we set for the lesson. My main teaching techniques include color coding, repetition, summaries and testing your knowledge. I like to work interactively so you can ask me questions and interrupt me throughout the entire session.

1) Firstly I will go through the theory of what you require help with, whether it be a chapter in the sciences or a technique in Literature or Language.

2) Then we may choose to work through some past paper questions in order to consolidate your knowledge.

3) Finally we will take some time to summarize the lesson and to ensure you are 100% comfortable with the material!

I firmly believe that exam technique is vital in order to obtain the grade that you deserve. You MUST be able to answer questions keeping in mind what the examiners are looking for, and that is something I will gladly help you with! 

Remember, you can always ask me other questions on my email, stating your exam board and your query, and I won’t hesitate to answer them.

I look forward to meeting you and I hope that I can make you just as passionate about the subjects I tutor as I am! Kass.

Questions Katerina has answered

Basic Reactions of Acids.

Any chemical that dissociates to give an Hion is classified as an acid.  There are stong and weak acids but at GCSE you only need to know some key reactions which apply to both weak and strong acids. 

acid + metal = salt of the acid + Hgas. 

acid + base = salt of acid + H2

acid + carbonate = CO2  + H2O + salt of acid 

Each time the salt of the acid is named as follows: 

If the acid is HCl the compound will be a metal chloride, 

If the acid is H2SOthe salt will be a metal suphate

Similarly, if the acid is ethanoic or methanoic acid, the salt will be an ethanoate or a methanoate respectively. 

eg. ethanoic acid + potassium hydroxide = potassium ethanoate + water

What is the difference between assonance sibilance and alliteration?

All three are types of aural imagery which is probably the most prominent type of imagery as it is easily identified by reading out the text. It is spread into many sections. 

1) Alliteration: the repetition of the same consonant sound either at the beginning or into he middle of words. eg. perfect pike in all parts/ fragments of regret. 

2) Assonance: the repetition of a vowel sound either at the beginning or in the middle of words. eg. mighty cries in the night.

3)Sibilance: repetition of the 's' sound throughout a phrase or a sentence. eg. she slowly staggered across the street. 

 All three types of aural imagery may help to create a slower or faster rhythm or may aid to convey a certain feeling such as excitement (usually done with letters such as 'r') or sadness (usually done with 's' sounds). 
Remember: ALL ALLITERATION IS THERE FOR A REASON!

What is the difference between passive and active immunity?

Active immunity is happens due to the contact of lymphocytes with pathoges (or simply their antigens), which triggers the specific immune response and immunological memory is produced (T-Memory cells created). This response is slow and can take up to a couple days, whilst its effects are long lasting. The final products of the immunity are antibodies and T-Memory cells. 

In passive immunity however, antibodies are taken into the body (could be from a poison antidote or from colostrum in human milk), and these antibodies only remain in the system for a short time, as then are then converted and excreted. This type of immunity is short term however it acts to clear the infection immediatelyNo immunological memory is created.

Both types of immunity can be artificial or natural.
