Who are you?
Hey guys! My name is Sophie Winter; I am currently a 3rd year Medical student at the University of Birmingham. I have had a variety of experience in both teaching and working with children of all ages, which makes me both passionate and practiced in tutoring. I have previously worked for a children’s summer camp, afterschool club homework sessions, school ‘house captain’ and at a school for those with specialist needs.
Combine this experience with my understanding and love for the sciences and I feel I can really help any of you who are struggling with either the content or application of the topics!
What can you help me with?
I would absolutely love to give anyone help in the subjects I feel most practiced in and also with Medical School applications and interviews.
My subject choices are based on those where I received A*’s in at both A level and GCSE, which also make up a component of my course now at university. This ensures that I am up to date and very familiar with the content so I can give more assistance to you.
How will you help?
The most important thing about these sessions are getting the most out of them for you. With this in mind I will tailor each tutorial to your individual needs and difficulties. I think learning is done best in a relaxed and fun place and so I aim to make sure you feel comfortable and assured in the sessions.
For the nitty gritty learning component I am familiar with a variety of learning tools, of which I find diagrams, flow charts and acronyms particularly useful.
Once you feel confident with the content of the subject I think it’s really important to apply your knowledge to consolidate your learning. For this we will run through exam papers together and use quizzes.
By the end of the session I aim for you to feel confident in explaining the concept back to me, and then you can learn even more by explaining to your parents or dog!
Okay great, how do I get started?
If you feel after reading my resume that I could be the tutor you’ve been searching for then please arrange a session with me detailing your subject (including the exam board and level) and what’s troubling you. A great way to find out if I’m the tutor for you is to organize a ‘Meet the Tutor Session’ where we can have a chat about how the website works and get to know each other for 15 minutes before organising tutorials. If you have any questions you can ask me there or send me a ‘WebMail’. All communications are through the My Tutor Web website.
I look forward to meeting you!

Both antigenic shift and drift are used by viruses to adapt to selection pressures and avoid host immune systems.
Antigenic shift is a slow change in the viral genes over time due to replication errors and random mutations. Few antigenic shift events may allow the antibodies of the immune response to still be active. Eventually the antigenic variation will become such that the hosts immune system no longer has effective antibodies against the antigen.
Antigenic drift is an abrupt change in the genome of viruses and is a more rare occurence. It occurs due to the combination of 2 or more different virus strains. This creates a new subtype which has a mixture of antigens and so cannot be recognised by the immune system of the host. These events often lead to epidemics of flu such as the H1N1 strain in 2009.see more
