About me

Hi, my name's Natalie. I'm studying Human Sciences BSc at University College London, a degree which I love because it includes my passions for both pure and social sciences! 

This is reflected in the subjects I am able to tutor in - for A level, I can do both Biology (or Human Biology) and English Literature, having achieved an A* in both. For GCSE I can do any Science, English Literature and Language and am also more than happy to help with any essay writing struggles, for both science and other subjects. This includes the EPQ, for which I got an A in year 12.

For English Literature A Level, I studied the texts: The Great Gatsby, No Country for Old Men, Hamlet, The Revenger's Tragedy, The Bloody Chamber, The Wyfe of Bath, Oleanna, and the poetry of John Keats, Slyvia Plath and Ted Hughes. I'm therefore very well equipped to help with any of these texts, but am also happy to research and try my best with other texts too.

Thank you for reading about me, I look forward to hearing from you!

About my sessions

I know very well that every student learns differently, and everybody struggles with different subjects and topics. I therefore use a student-lead approach: you come to the session prepared with the things you need help with and together we will try out as many ways as possible to help you understand it, shaping this to your preferred learning methods and the techniques I've had success with in the past. 

We can then go on to doing practice exam questions, working through the syllabus and mark scheme to make sure we know exactly how to get top marks in exams, as understanding papers and mark schemes is just as important as understanding the subject!

Questions Natalie has answered

What is a carbohydrate?

A carbohydrate is a long molecule made up of lots of individual units called monosaccharides. These units are sugars, including glucose, fructose and lactose.

When two of these units are bound together, it's called a disaccharide. When more than one are bound together in a chain, it is a polysaccharide - this is what starch is. Starch is a major component of a healthy diet, and is found in potatoes, bread, pasta and more.

What is a concentration gradient?

A concentration gradient occurs when you have a solute, like salt, dissolved in a solution, like water. Most of the time there won't be the same amount of salt through out all of the water - there will be more in some areas (a higher concentration) and less in others (a lower concentration). From the highest concentration areas, the concentration gradually decreases to the lowest - this is called a concentration gradient and it is very important in biology.

What is diffusion?

Diffusion is the movement of particles from an area of high concentration to low concentration (down a concentration gradient). This occurs because the particles move randomly, and eventually end up evenly spread through the area.
