About my sessions

In my tutorials, we will build a sound foundation together to make way for more complex knowledge and understanding. My main teaching material will be past paper questions which is key to success in exams. They will help us figure out your blind spots and fill in the gaps.

Medical school hopefuls?

Fret not, I'm more than happy to provide any support I can! I've received SO much help during my application process and I'd love to pass on that favour! I provide mentoring through the whole process from UKCAT and personal statements to the dreaded interview.

Great! What now?

Drop me a quick message so I can meet you! Let me know your exam board, as well as any particular areas of difficulty you are having and we will work from here.

Why is lactic acid produced during anaerobic respiration?

During anaerobic respiration, there is an insufficient amount of oxygen in the blood. Oxygen acts as the final electron acceptor after the electron has been passed down the electron transport chain (ETC) which is located in the intermembrane space (IMS) of the mitochondria. The ETC comes to a halt as reduced NAD from the Krebs cycle do not become re-oxidised. To combat this, pyruvate produced at the end of glycolysis accepts electrons from reduced NAD to reform NAD. Lactate is formed as pyruvate accepts electrons.
