Degree: Medicine (Bachelors) - Newcastle University
I`m a 5th year medical student currently studying for a Masters in Research at Newcastle University. Having achieved A*s in Physics, Chemistry, Biology and French at A level as well as in A in maths I feel confident that I can make these challenging subjects more simple and fun for all age groups. I'm half French and speak the language fluently so can be of real help to people of all ages wishing to practise and learn!
By setting our aims together we can reach my students objectives in a way that suits them. I always look to find new ways to make lessons more enjoyable and to make sure that the important points stick. When I teach I help my students realise how much they know already which really helps to boost their confidence.
I have experience teaching students at a range of levels such as small groups of undergraduate medical students, teaching First Aid to 11-18 year olds for charity and tutoring A-Level Physics students. I like to keep things simple and to take things back to the basics. With strong foundations students have then found tackling previously challenging topics much easier!
Any questions? Please get in touch through the “WebMail” or book a free “Meet the Tutor Session”! Don’t forget to let me know what you’re struggling with.
I look forward to meeting you!

Antiobiotics kill bacteria but bacteria can become resistant to antibiotics. This happens through a process called natural selection. Within a group/population of bacteria they will all have small differences because of random mutations. These mutations can make them stronger or weaker, resistant or non-resistant to antibiotics. So when you give an antibiotic those with a mutation that gives them resistance survive and the others die. This selects a small population of resistant bacteria that can then grow with less competition. The whole population is now resistant to this antibiotic.
An example of this is MRSA (Methicillin resistant staphylococcocus aureus). It is resistant to a lot of antibiotics making it very difficult to treat and therefore dangerous.
To avoid bacteria becoming resistant it is important to avoid giving antibiotics unecessarily and to complete the full course.see more
