About me

Hi! My name is Sarah, I'm a Medical Student at the University of Birmingham. I decided to study medicine because helping people is my passion and it will be a great honour to be able to do so. I am more than happy to help any budding medics with personal statements, interviews or anything else you might need help with.


I will always try my best to help build your confidence and get the results you are aiming for. It is important to me that the people that I tutor get personalised help, so that they can progress in ways that suit them. I’ll always ask what you want to go through before I start trying to explain anything, that way we should cover the things that you find hard first.

I always found it best to write things out when I was revising for school exams, so I’ll always try my best to help you write coherent notes that are easy to look back on, because if you can't understand your notes then what's

the point in having them?

I’ve chosen GCSE Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Science, as well as IB Biology because I have a passion for these subjects, I use them on a daily basis and have a wide knowledge base in them, so they're all things that I'm very capable of helping you with.

About my sessions

My sessions will focus on the parts of the subject that you are having the most trouble with, though I will also help with things that you think you understand but not quite. This will be adaptable to the student, I want you to get as much out of it as you possibly can! We can try multiple methods before we settle on the one that works for you, and we will try to build your confidence up together, because I believe that if you have confidence in a subject, it is much easier to develop the knowledge and understanding you need to pass all the exams. Eventually, we may try exam questions, and if that's all you'd like to work at then I'm happy to do that too, but I will only try exam questions with you when I feel that it won't destroy your confidence. Together we will work out how to ace that exam, your way!

Questions Sarah has answered

Explain the process of translation of proteins in a ribosome.

Translation is the process by which mRNA strands are converted into polypeptides that can be used within the cell or released from the cell in order to carry out specific functions. There are four stages to translation; initiation, elongation, translocation and elimination.Initiation is the process by which the ribosome complex is assembled around the mRNA strand. The small subunit binds first to the 5' end and moves along the mRNA until the start codon (AUG) is found. The tRNA with the complementary anticodon for AUG then binds to the mRNA using the principle of complementary base-pairing. Then large subunit of the ribosome then aligns itself with the tRNA molecule in the P site of the ribosome, forming the ribosome complex.After initiation, elongation occurs. This process begins the repeated cycle that is responsible for ensuring the whole mRNA chain is read and translated. The second tRNA is bound into the A site and the amino acid attached to the original tRNA is covalently bonded to the amino acid in the A site by a peptide bond, through a condensation reaction. The original tRNA is now deacylated and the A site tRNA carries the polypeptide chain.Translocation is the process by which the ribosome complex moves along the mRNA chain to translate the next portion of code, it moves one codon in the 5'-3' direction. The tRNA in the P site moves to the E site and is removed from the complex and the tRNA with the polypeptide chain is moved to the P site. A new tRNA that is complementary to the codon now in the A site binds and the processes of elongation and translocation repeat, until a stop codon is reached.When a stop codon is reached, elimination is triggered. The stop codons do not code for a tRNA molecule, but instead retrieve factors that disassemble the ribosome complex. The polypeptide is released and the ribosome is removed from the mRNA, this mRNA can then be used to code for another, identical, polypeptide, or it can be destroyed by the enzymes within the cell.Translation is the process by which mRNA strands are converted into polypeptides that can be used within the cell or released from the cell in order to carry out specific functions.
