Hello prospective students,
My name is Dheyna and I am currently in my second year studying Geology at Durham University. I did Geography at GCSE and A-Level, which lead to my discovery of my interest in Geology (and Physical Geography).
I found my previous tutoring opportunities very rewarding and would like to continue to help people to understand the subjects I enjoy. I achieved top grades at GCSE (10x A*/A) and AAAB at A-Level - I hope to put my knowledge to good use by helping you!
During sessions, you will control what we cover. We will focus on making you comfortable with the basic concepts and then focus on exam advice.
It would be very useful if you could tell me your exam board and what you're struggling with so that I can prepare - I will use as many techniques to explain a concept to you, using (analogies, diagrams etc.) until you feel confident.
Hope to hear from you soon!

Depressions move from west to east over the UK i.e. from the Atlantic Ocean to the North Sea. This is due to the rotation of the Earth and the Coriolos Effect. Winds blowing from high pressure (the tropics) are deflected to the east (in the Northern hemisphere) and therefore creates the UK’s prevailing westerly winds. Low pressure systems are also more prevalent during the autumn period due to the movement of the jet stream. The jet stream steers weather systems north of the British Isles in summer and over the UK in winter.see more
Hurricanes develop most often off the west coast of Africa when water temperatures reach 27°C, giving the necessary heat and moisture to the air to form a tropical depression with wind speeds of around 20-40mph. From here the tropical depression tracks westwards across the Atlantic Ocean towards North America under the influence of trade winds, gaining moisture and energy as it travels - developing into a tropical storm (wind speeds of around 40-70mph). As a tropical storm approaches the Gulf of Mexico, wind speeds increase to over 75mph and a category 1 hurricane is born. When a hurricane reaches land it is deprived of moisture so loses energy and begins to decay whilst tracking northwards. Hurricanes have a huge impact on people’s lives - the high speed winds and the intense cumulonimbus development (increasing the risk of heavy rainfall and thunderstorms) causes a number of problems to the population.see more
Anticyclones are areas of high pressure caused by descending air. They are stable air masses with very light, slow winds due to a gentle pressure gradient – these winds blow clockwise in direction (in the Northern Hemisphere). Anticyclones also bring a general lack of cloud cover and little precipitation. This is because the descending air is being compressed and becomes warmer, thus preventing the condensation of moisture in the air so clouds do not form. With a lack of clouds there is, naturally, a lack of precipitation.see more
