I'm a 4th year medical student at the University of Edinburgh, having just completed a BSc (Hons) at Imperial College London. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and would love to help you achieve the grades you're aspiring towards!
My tutoring experience involves mentoring peers and younger students, which taught me to adapt my teaching styles, helping people of many different ages. I will use these skills to try and adapt the tutorials to suit the individual.
During tutorials, I prefer students to guide what they would like to cover. I am friendly and approachable, hopefully making students comfortable coming to me with their queries. I aim to keep sessions unique by using many different resources from videos to graphs and diagrams, giving you interesting new ways to remember things.
Doing well in many subjects comes down to understanding the core content really well. I will make sure you not only understand this content, but you are also able to apply it to the different exam questions. To do this I will work through papers with you to make sure you are familiar with the different styles and tricks exam boards use. I will also pass on tips and advice on exam technique that helped me succeed in my exams.
Exam boards for A-level:
Biology - OCR, Chemistry - AQA, Maths and History - Edexcel
Having also gone through the application for medical school - I hope to be able to pass on some of my knowledge and advice, which can hopefully help you also secure a place at medical school! I have helped many younger students with their applications including personal statement help and mock interviews.

There are 4 levels you use to describe protein structure.
Primary Structure - This is the simplest structure of a protein. It is essentially the sequence of amino acids that form a protein.
Secondary Structure - In longer protein chains, parts are organised into two structures known as alpha-helices, or beta-pleated sheets. These structures are held together by hydrogen bonds. Alpha-helices are cylindrical whereas beta-pleated sheets tend to be flat or planar.
Tertiary Structure - This is the 3D structure the protein chain folds itself into. A protein chain is organised into it's tertiary structure through various interactions. These include - ionic interactions (between -COOH and -NH2 groups), hydrogen bonds, van der Waals forces/hydrophobic interactions or disulphide bridges (between two cysetine residues).
Quarternary structure - this is the arrangement of one or more protein molecules (polypeptide chains) into a multi-protein complex. An example includes haemoglobin, which is made of 4 polypeptide chains.see more
