About me

Hello, I’m Jemima 😊 Hopefully this’ll help you get to know me…

I’m currently in my fourth year studying medicine at Cardiff University. I grew up near Chichester but have really enjoyed exploring Wales since moving here in 2015. I love being with people, getting outdoors and exploring the beautiful countryside on a dog walk, having a quick dip in the sea and sailing whenever I can go home!

At university I help run two student societies: Students for Global Health and Wilderness and Expedition Medicine, it’s all about being part of a wider student network and using our voices to bring change.

I’m also involved in Cardiff Universities widening access to medicine (WAMMS) scheme tutoring welsh students to get into medicine. I'm very happy to help with all things personal statement, interview etc. too!

Outside of university things, I help run children’s and students groups at Vineyard Church Cardiff and also teach sailing to children and young people at three clubs.

About my sessions

I’m so passionate about seeing life as far more than exams. I’m very aware that revision and exams have to happen and jumping through hoops can feel a bit endless, boring and stressful – BUT they are (unfortunately) something we all have to do.

With my tutees I aim to build up personal relationships where we can work together to make topics relevant and interesting to students, and help each individual to work out what it is that they personally need to do to make the exam technique click and fall into place. – Sometimes it just takes someone who’s been there before to point out HOW to answer the questions.

I can’t see much point in just repeating what’s done in schools but that’s the privilege of tutoring – to have an hour of one to one time can make a huge difference and I can’t wait to work alongside you to help you make progress.

Any questions at all, please just let me know – happy to help in anyway I can!

Questions Jemima has answered

Coeliac disease is a condition which affects the villi in the small intestine of the digestive system. One of the symptoms of coeliac disease is poor growth in children. Explain why this might be.

When someone with coeliac disease eats gluten this causes damage to the villi in the small intestine. This causes a reduced surface area for absorption of food. This means that fewer nutrients such as amino acids and glucose molecules can be absorbed.This means there is less glucose available for use in respiration to make new cells.If fewer amino acids are absorbed, there are less available to build new proteins.Without new proteins and cells, growth cannot happen.Therefore children with coeliac disease who eat gluten may be short.When someone with coeliac disease eats gluten this causes damage to the villi in the small intestine.
