About me

About me I am a second-year BSc Biomedical Science student at King's College London. I have always been deeply fascinated by science, philosophy and languages— and I hope that my tutorials will help you understand these subjects more easily and entertainingly. My first experience abroad started in 2011, when I moved from my hometown (Rome) to Beijing, China— where I completed my International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP), mastering English, and learning Mandarin Chinese as part of my curriculum. I also decided to join a Debate, Speech & Impromptu club and Drama classes; my main goal back then was to get outside of my comfort zone, and become as talkative and outgoing as possible! ​Beijing's atmosphere sparked my wanderlust and, eventually, my motivation to move to London on my own, to start studying at KCL. My experience as a tutor During my last two years of high-school— the IB Diploma Programme (DP)— I started tutoring beginner level Chinese to high-school students, as a volunteer. Since then, I gained a lot experience as a professional private tutor: I have completed more than 100 hours of tutoring in a wide variety of subjects (Chemistry, Biology, Philosophy, English, IB TOK & EE) from somthe most renowned educational programmes of high-school education (IB, A-Levels, GCSE, iGCSE) across several exam boards (IB, AQA, OCR, Edexcel). Are you applying to university or medical school? I have also helped my tutees writing with their personal statements— or preparing for their medical admission tests (e.g. BMAT). I'll be happy to help you if you need tips for or comments on your application process. During our tutorials It's always up to you what topic we are covering during our tutorial. I will always prepare some teaching material beforehand— including summaries, pictures, diagrams, exercises, videos, and other interesting links (​depending on the subject you need help with). Any questions? Feel free to send me a message— or to book a free, online 'Meet the Tutor Session'! ​Remember to specify your exam board, your grade and the topics you're struggling with. I'm looking forward to meeting you!

Proteins, also known as polypeptides, are amino acid sequences. All proteins are made of amino acids.

Proteins exhibit variance. This is due to the fact that there can be a myriad of possible combinations: there are only 20 amino acids, but most polypeptides are composed of thousands and thousands of amino acids!

Polypeptides are formed on ribosomes (which are respectively made of (A) ribosomal RNA and (B) protein, for structural support).

Amino acids are linked via peptide bonds. A peptide bond occurs between the carboxyl group of an amino acid (-COOH) and the amino group of another (-NH3). It is a condensation reaction, and thus yields water.

When broken down (e.g. by protease enzymes), a reverse reaction occurs: hydrolysis. The peptide bond is broken, and water is taken up to restore the normal structure of an amino acid (regenerating the -COOH and the -NH3 ends).

Existentialism is a philosophical school of thought that was born around the 1950s.

Existentialists stress the importance of choices. Contrary to moral supernaturalism and nihilism, existentialism puts forward the idea that only we can decide what our life purpose is. In other words, no other being or force can decide for us: it is completely up to us.

"We are left alone, with no excuse." (Jean-Paul Sartre)

One of the most important concepts in existentialism is authenticity. To be authentic, or to lead an authentic life, is to make choices on our own and not to follow other people's believes or lifestyles. An authentic life is one that is chosen purely by the individual himself or herself, and not by an outside force.
