About me

Hi!

I am doing a Liberal Arts and Natural Sciences degree and am majoring in chemistry and with minors in human biology and business. I chose this degree because I new wanted to further study chemistry but also love biology so didn't want to stop doing it after A-levels.

Having just finished my A-levels I know how hard and stressful they can be and would love to be able to help other students and pass on any revision tips and subject knowledge that I can.

I am part of the university swim club and find balancing exercise with studying is really important keep healthy and stay motivated.

About my sessions

I will offer advice and feedback on questions where students may not have understood parts of a question as well as going through various topics within the subject that the student is less confident with.

I shall also provide revision tips and ways to revise certain topics such as diagrams, flashcards, lists etc. 

In the sessions I may do a worked answer to a question then provide another question for the student to have a go at to see if they understood.

I think the best way to learn is to practice as many questions as possible because then it becomes clear what the key points are for a perfect answer no matter how the question is worded.

Questions Philippa has answered

Explain why the atomic radii decreases as you go across a period.

-As you go across the period, the number of protons in the nucleus increases causing the nuclear charge increases-The number of electrons also increases across the period however the effect of shielding remains the same as they are going into the same sub-shell. -So effective nuclear charge increases and there is a greater attraction between the positive nucleus and negative outer electrons, causing the atomic radii to decrease.-As you go across the period, the number of protons in the nucleus increases causing the nuclear charge increases-The number of electrons also increases across the period however the effect of shielding remains the same as they are going into the same sub-shell. -So effective nuclear charge increases and there is a greater attraction between the positive nucleus and negative outer electrons, causing the atomic radii to decrease.
