About me

About Me:

HI! I am currently a first year medical student at Leeds University. I have always found the human body fascinating, and since a young age I have had a passion for science!

I also developed a love for teaching, as I have been teaching swimming and lifesaving lessons since the age of 16. I have always aimed to be a patient and engaging teacher, trying to make anything I teach interactive and fun! 

The Sessions:

During the sessions you can always guide what we cover, and determine what it is you need help with. We can go through the content together, until you feel comfortable with the scientific basis, and then we can go onto exam questions covering the topic we have been through in the session. 

In my sessions I will use different ways to help you to understand what we have covered, and help you to become confident enough to explain the concept back to me! At the beginning of the next session I will put together a mini test on what we have covered in the previous session: just to keep you on your toes! This will help you with ongoing learning. 

What next?

If you are interested or have any questions send me a message via WedMail or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! Remember to tell me your exam board and what you are needing specific help with!

Questions Isobel has answered

How does air enter the lungs for inspiration? What does the body do to make this happen?

Intercostal muscles and the diapragm contract, which causes the ribs to move upwards and outwards. This increases the volume of the thorax, therefore lowering the pressure within the lungs. The pressure of the lungs is now below atmospheric pressure, so air moves down a pressure graident into the lungs.

What is a reflex action and along which pathway does it travel in the nervous system?

A reflex action is an automatic rapid involuntary response, which acts to protect the body from damage. Such as when you touch something extremely hot, you involuntarily remove your hand from the hot object. This is controlled by the nervous system, and follows this pathway: stimulus → receptor → sensory neurone → relay neurone → motor neurone → effector → response
