I am studying Medicine and my course has helped to deepen my interest in Biology, particularly Human Biology and I aim to share this love with you in my tutorials. I am friendly and love to help others and my tutorials will be fun, interactive and focused around you and areas you want to cover. I will go over concepts as many times as you need and in as many ways as I can until you are confident, before moving on to practice exam questions and exam techniques.
I can also help with applying to Medical School, as, having been through this process twice, I know how daunting this process can be. From personal statements to interview prepatation and tips, I know getting advice from someone who has been through it all recently can help boost your application.
I studied Biology, Chemistry and Maths to A-Level, receiving A grades in all three subjects, and hope with my knowledge and experience of taking these exams I can help you to achieve the best grade you can.
I look forward to meeting you and do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any further questions!

Proteins are polymers of amino acids, formed by long chains of amino acids joined together by peptide bonds. These bonds are formed by condensation reactions which allow two single amino acid molecules to join together forming a dipeptide molecule and water. There are four levels of protein structure. The primary structure is the order of amino acids in the peptide. Secondary structure is the folding of the polypeptide chain due to hydrogen bonding into an alpha helix structure, resembling a coiled spring, or a beta pleated sheet. Tertiary structure is the 3-D folding due to ionic and disulphide bonds between sulphur molecules in distant parts of the chain. These bonds may also be hydrogen bonds which occur between distant parts of the chain. The majority of proteins, such as enzymes, only exhibit primary, secondary and tertiary structure. Some proteins, such as haemoglobin, have quarternary structure which is when the protein has two or more polypeptide chains joined together.see more
