About me

Hi there, my name's Alexis and I study Biomedical Science at Durham University. I love my subject and learning in general and I hope I can help you feel the same, or at least half the enthusiasm I have in whatever subject you do!  

I did the IB in sixth form so I have a lot of knowledge in everything IB related. I understand how daunting and scary it can be, or any form of education for that matter. I have spent two years tutoring particularly in Biology and Maths, but I do have knowledge of many other areas as well, including areas specific to the IB. 

Our Sessions

I have had many years experience tutoring, over a variety of subjects and it is something I really enjoy. I use a variety of techniques to teach, however I will always try to tailor the sessions to the individual and find out how you learn best.

My aim is to make the sessions as enjoyable as possible, whilst getting across the main points and concepts. I want you to actually know the subject, and have a good understanding, rather than just learning facts to regurgitate in an exam. I also want it to be a relaxed and comfortable environment where you aren't afraid to ask questions. 

Booking a Session

If you think I could be the right tutor for you, or have questions, please feel free to send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor' session and I hope I can help you with whatever problems you are facing.

How do I differentiate?

Differentiation is a relatively easy process once you learn the basic method. The basic rule is, you multiply the coefficient of x by the exponent, which becomes the new coefficient, and then reduce the exponent by 1. For example; differentiate 4x3 To get the new coefficient you times to old ...

Differentiation is a relatively easy process once you learn the basic method. The basic rule is, you multiply the coefficient of x by the exponent, which becomes the new coefficient, and then reduce the exponent by 1.

For example; differentiate 4x3

To get the new coefficient you times to old coefficient and exmponent together, in this case 4 x 3 = 12.

To get the new exponent, you reduce the old exponent by 1. So the new exponent is 3-1 = 2.

Therfore, the differntial of 4x3  is  12x2.

How do the hydrophobic and hydrophilic properties of phospholipids help maintain the structure of cell membranes?

The cell membrane is comprised of molecules with a phosphate head and hydrocarbon tail. The phosphate heads are polar, therfore they are hydrophilic and form favourable interactions with water, so line the outside of the membrane. The fatty acid, hydrocarbon tails are non-polar and are hydrophobic so face inwards to the centre of the membrane.

Due to the interactions between the hydrophobic tails in the centre and between the hydrophilic heads and water on the outside, it creates a very stable membrane.

There are a few fundamental differences between these processes. Mitosis is required for cell growth and repair and asexual reproduction. Meiosis is used in the production of gametes for sexual reproduction. During mitosis only one division occurs leading to the production of two genetically identical diploid daughter cells. In meiosis there are two divsion resulting in four haploid daughter cells which are not gentically identical. These differences occur due to crossing over during prophase 1 in which recombination can happen.
