About me

My name is Tara and I am a final year medical student based in Liverpool. I thoroughly enjoy my degree as it is allows me to combine my love of science with interacting with people. In addition, I find that as well as being a student, I can also be a mentor and tutor to students in younger year groups, which has fuelled my passion for teaching. I have been tutoring for over six years and all my students have received grades A*/A in the subjects I have assisted them with. I aim to make learning as fun as possible and to encourage students to be inquisitive about their learning so that they can grasp a better understanding of the subject through their own curiosity. I undertook the UKCAT examination twice, with both attempts scoring above 700 and many of my students have received similar results. I feel my attention to detail and approach to studying will help students to enjoy the entire process of learning much more and provide them with valuable transferrable study skills.

About my sessions

I tend to structure my sessions around areas of weakness that a student may feel. I then like to take things back to basics and build upon them in an easy to digest way so that the student will gain a holistic understanding of the topic. In addition, I feel starting with a bottom up approach in this way encourages further questioning and can make the learning process at lot more fun and interactive. I tend to set students homework at the end of each session to consolidate their learning and to track their progress to see if certain areas need revisiting.

Questions Tara has answered

Explain the role of bile in digestion (3 marks)

Bile aids the digestion of fats by breaking down the larger particles of fats into their monomers providing an increased surface area for digestive enzymes to further break down and absorb particles. In addition the bile acts as an emulsifier so that fat monomers can be transported around the body. It also ensure that fat soluble vitamins such as ADEK can be absorbed in the small intestine. Bile also contains bilirubin, a compound responsible for much of the excretion of waste products in the body. Bile also neutralises the acidity of the products of digestion to ensure that the small intestines are not damaged and also that the compounds in the digestive juice is able to be absorbed effectively within the intestine. The relative alkalinity also increases the rate at which absorption can occurBile aids the digestion of fats by breaking down the larger particles of fats into their monomers providing an increased surface area for digestive enzymes to further break down and absorb particles.
