I am an enthusiastic medical student at Leeds University and am currently studying English Literature & Medicine and History of Medicine at the University of Glasgow for one year.
I am very passionate about a whole range of subjects. I believe every subject can be interesting to learn and my main aim is to keep whatever we are learning interesting for you!
I have experience of teaching young people in secondary schools ages 12-16 and spent two years working in an after-school club working with children as young as five.
I am a very patient and friendly person! I will make sure to go at your pace whilst also challenging you, so that at the end of every session you feel that you understand what we have gone through and have achieved something.
I believe that everyone learns in different ways and my sessions will focus on finding out in what way you learn best and using that to tailor our learning style for each topic. This could include diagrams, analogies and perhaps even audio-visual resources if appropriate.
The best way to remember anything is to truly understand it rather than learn it by heart. At the end of each session I will ask you to teach me about what you have learnt. After all, the best way to know if you truly understand it is to explain it to someone else.
Most of all education should be fun! It is about exploring what interests you in a topic and building on that.
Help in applying to university / medical school
I know how stressful applying to university is but I can help you break each task down so that you end up where you want to be.
As part of my medical school application I sat the UKCAT and BMAT exams as well as completing all the UCAS requirements. I am also part of the STEMNET mentor network and so have experience of giving feedback on personal statements.
What happens now?
If you have any questions just send me a Webmail or book a 'Meet the Tutor' session (both accessible through the website). Just remember to let me know your exam board and what it is you need help with.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

With this question it is important to focus on the human contribution to global warming rather than explaining why global warming is happening.
Start your answer by explaining that carbon dioxide and methane are 'greenhouse gases'. This means that they absorb heat. Therefore more carbon dioxide or methane in the atmosphere means more heat will be absorbed and the earth will get warmer.
Humans have caused an increase in carbon dioxide in several different ways:
- Deforestation (the cutting down of trees) means less carbon dioxide is being absorbed by trees to be used in photosynthesis.
- The burning of trees and fossil fuels such as coal releases extra carbon dioxide as they are stores (otherwise known as carbon dioxide 'sinks').
Human activities that cause an increase in methane include:
- Cattle farming
- The growing of rice in rice fields
- Landfills; as the waste in landfills breaks down it releases mostly methane and carbon dioxide.see more
Osmosis is the movement of solvent particles (usually referring to water) from an area of low concentration (i.e. lots of water particles) to and area of high concentration (i.e. less water particles and more other substances).
Diffusion is the movement of particles from an area of high concentration to low concetration. An example is if a gas canister is opened at one end of the room; because of the differences in concentration the particles of gas will diffuse towards the other end of the room.see more
