About me

About me:

I study medicine in Southampton, and have previously studied Chemistry at University College Dublin and neuroscience at the University of Edinburgh. Understanding more about the world around me has always been something I'm passionate about, and science has especially intrigued me. 
I have previously tutored students in Leaving Certificate (school leaving exams in Ireland) Chemistry and Biology, and in addition tutor students in biomedical sciences in lower years in my current university. Many of them have seen an improvement in their results so hopefully you can too.

So if you're interested, please book a Meet The Tutor session, or send me a WebMail. 

Hope to hear from you soon!

About my sessions

It's important that you have a good understanding of what you're studying, so in the sessions I will try and break down difficult concepts into easy to understand parts, making sure that you understand them before tackling example questions. I will be using different methods of explaining the concepts, like diagrams and videos, to try and explain things.

We can go through the course from start to finish, or if there's something you'd like to focus particularly on I'm happy to do that. 
And of course, I will try and make the sessions enjoyable! Learning should be fun, not feel like a chore.

Questions Darragh has answered

Proteins are an important part of a healthy diet because they provide essential amino acids. (a) State what is meant by an essential amino acid.

 

There are 20 amino acids, and they can be classified as essential or non-essential – if they are non-essential they can be synthesised by the human body by itself, with no need to supplement them in the diet. If they are essential they cannot be synthesised by the body and must be obtained through dietary means.

The recommended daily allowance of methionine for an adult is 15 mg per kg of body mass. Tuna contains 755 mg of methionine per 100 g portion. Calculate the mass, in grams, of tuna that would provide the RDA of methionine for a 60 kg adult.

15mg per kilo recommended dose
15x60 = 900mg recommended dose for a 60kg adult
There is 755mg per 100g portion of tuna
So 900/755 = 1.19 times the amount in 100g of tuna is the recommended dose
1.19 x 100 = 119
119g of tuna is the amount that would provide the total recommended dose for a 60kg adult
