About me

About me

I am a masters student at Newcastle University, studying cancer research. I recently graduated from Newcastle with a First with Honours in Biomedical Sciences. Science is my passion, and I am currently applying for PhD's in cancer research and am working full time within a research laboratory. 

History while not my current area of study is a subject which I have great interest in and excelled at through my GCSE's and A level. Key is the ability to analyse the facts and formulate them into a good essay something I have continued to do through my degree and is an area I feel I can help in.

I have mentored younger students while at school and have two younger brothers who I have often tutored with their studies. One of the best ways to learn I find is to teach and as such relish the chance to share my knowledge with others. 

The learning

Getting the basic foundations is key and I will focus on that but the problem often with GSCE and A level science is that the simplification of the science can often make it difficult to grasp. If this is the case I feel my background allows me to present the bigger picture which may help to develop your understanding.

University Applications

In terms of help for most science degrees I can provide guidance on how to write a good personal statement and also for those considering going into academic research I can also talk on what that involves and the possibilities that career offers.

Any questions send me a "Webmail" or book a meeting. 

I look forward to working with you

Questions James has answered

In the field of genetics what does the term "mutation" describe?

A mutation is a change in the sequence of nucleotides that make up DNA. This can be caused by a range of internal and external factors. Mutations within the coding region of genes can lead to changes in the protein they encode or may have no effect due the redundancy from codon triplets. If there is no effect this is termed a silent mutation.
