Degree: Psychology (Bachelors) - Bristol University
I'm a first year Psychology student at Bristol University. I have spent lots of time, and really enjoy working with children. I have previously worked full time at preparatory school, where I would regularly give extra tuition to children falling behind or with learning difficulties. This mostly involved helping maths and literacy skills.
Being dyslexic myself I already know many ways to make learning more interesting and effective, from the extra help I was given. I know how important it is for children to enjoy what they are learning, as well as getting a full understanding. I always focus on making sessions as interactive as possible to give the confidence and skills needed to progress. I'm ultimately aiming for the point the student no longer needs me!
If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website).
I look forward to hearing from you!

DNA - carry the genetic code that determines characteristics of an organism
Chromosomes - made from long DNA molecules, many genes all coiled up into a chromosome. A healthy person will have 23 pairs of chromosomes.
Genes - a section of DNA that codes for a protien
Mitosis is all about replication of DNA
Cells reproduce in two ways - Mitosis and Meiosis.
remeber the difference
Mitosis - Cellular reproduction (making new cells), growth (gowing tissue), repair (replace damaged tissue), and asexual reproduction.
Meiosis - To create genetic diversity for sexual reproduction.
1. In the parent (original) cell, chromosomes make identical copies of themselves so there are 46 chromosomes.
2. They line up along the centre, and then the pairs break apart and move to opposit ends of the cell
3. A split is made in the middle of the cell. Two daughter cells form with identical chromosomes to the parent cell. Each cell will have 26 chromosomes which will later replicate back to 46.
These two daughter cells are genetically identical to the original cell. They may simply create new tissue, or could be the start of a new organism.
