About me

Hello!

About me:

I am a first year undergraduate studying Anthropology and Biology at the University of Exeter.

I was born in England but grew up in a Chinese speaking family, so I can relate to the difficulties in learning Mandarin yet still help with diction and pronunciation when it comes to those dread speaking orals!

I have always loved the sciences and in particular really loved biology because for me it was fascinating to understand how the world around me works.

Sessions:

It will be completely up to you on what we cover!

Whether it's going through some homework, understanding a difficult concept or just some general revision in the topics you find the hardest. My aim is to plan every session before they start so that we will get the most out of our 1 hour sessions.

Example session:

30 mins explaining and understanding (Including me explaining to you using different methods such a videos, diagrams and examples, then I would love for you to reteach it back to me for 5 mins to really see if you've understood it), short 5 minute break (if needed), 20 mins going through exam questions based on that topic together, and then I'll give a few questions to work through with less guidance. Final 5/10 minutes would be used to explain anymore questions you may have and then planning what we could cover in the next session.

But again, I will try and completely tailor it to what you would like to cover and how you learn best.

Additional information:

Having done a very diverse range of subjects at GCSE, IB and now doing a joint honors programme I have always been passionate about studying multiple disciplines but also I can sympathise about how tough it can be. I would love to help you with GCSE or IB revision planning and time management when it comes to managing so many different subjects.

Next step:

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send me a message or book a 'Meet the tutor' session as I'd love to chat and see where I can help. It would be really useful as well to include what exam board you're planning to take an exam with and the topics that you would like to go over.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Questions Xin Yan has answered

Define Enzyme and Active site

Enzymes are biological catalysts that are formed from globular proteins.

Active site is the molecule surface space where the substrate binds and catalysis occurs.

Extra points:

- Enzymes are NOT used up in a reaction

- Enzymes are substrate specific. This means the active site on the enzyme is fairly specific to what substrate it catalyses.
