Degree: Medicine (Doctorate) - Cambridge University
Hi! My name is Jonathan Ellis and I am a 4th year medical student at the University of Cambridge. I have a real passion for science, and hope my enthusiasm will rub off on you (or, at least, make you hate your exam board less!).
I particularly love touching on the real-life applications of science, as understanding the relevance of why you're learning something can help it stick!
You will always be the focus of any session we have together. I like to take a layered approach, starting with the basic, fundamental concepts and slowly adding layer upon layer of delicious knowledge.
I will utilise a variety of techniques (descriptions, diagrams, analogies, acronyms) to help with difficult topics. 55 minutes is actually a pretty long time for one-to-one tuition, so I like to work at a steady pace- and won't move on until you can convince me of your understanding!
I will then consolidate what we learn with exam questions, suggested extra reading and setting some questions of my own. Most of all though, I want the sessions to be fun!
Could you help me with med school apps?
Of course! I remember the stress of med school applications (the struggle is real). Having been through the rigorous process, attending tough interviews and receiving offers from top universities, I can offer insight into the process.
As the first student from my school to get into Oxbridge for medicine, I also have some good tips on how to stand out from other applicants and get that all-important place!
If you have any questions, send me a 'Webmail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'- these can both be done through the website. ******** Key info I need to know is what exam board you are on and what you are struggling with **********
I hope to meet you soon!

This was a question I was commonly asked when assisting GCSE science students in year 9/10.
Breathing is simply taking air in through your nose/ mouth and down into lungs (and then breathing it out again). - I would act this out.
In the air you breathe in, there is about 21% oxygen. This diffuses from the lung into blood and is carried around the body. Respiration is the process of cells using this oxygen to create energy. This is done inside the cell, in little energy factories floating in the cell called mitochondria.see more
