About me

About me: I am a final year Biology student studying at Durham University and completed a year in industry. I love all things Science and have a huge passion for sharing my knowledge in the field and developing others further! Previously I have mentored a GCSE class whilst at sixth form, had a job as an assistant tennis coach and worked in America as a camp councillor! Therefore I have lots of experience to draw on to effectively communicate concepts to you! The Tutorials: I am patient and caring but determined that you gain something from every session you have with me. I will use as many resources as are available to us in order to ensure you gain knowledge of the problems deeper than the mark schemes so you will pick up all the marks in the exams at the end of the year! I believe you will learn best if you are having fun so aim to create a relaxed atmosphere in which I can communicate my own passion and knowledge of the subject. I believe it helps if you see the relevance of what you are learning and will therefore strive to find something from day to day lives e.g. in the media, about your subject to show you in each session. Applying to University? If you are thinking of going to University then I want to help you! Whether you have questions about UCAS, need help narrowing down the huge choice of Universities or want to nail that personal statement, I am confident you can benefit from my advice! Next steps: Please feel free to get in touch via the MyTutor InMail system or arrange a “Meet the Tutor” session. Please remember to tell me what exam board you are studying for and what you are struggling with beforehand!About me: I am a final year Biology student studying at Durham University and completed a year in industry.

Questions Jonathan has answered

Explain how the lungs are adapted for gaseous exchange.

The lungs are made up of tiny sacs called alveoli which presents a very large surface area for gaseous exchange. The lungs are well supplied with blood due to lots of capillaries covering the alveoli, constantly maintaining a large diffusion gradient, air is able to pass easily down this gradient due to the alveoli having very thin walls (one cell thick).
