About me

All About Me: 

I am currently studying Veterinary Science at the University of Bristol. My love of science and the desire to work with people and animals means that I thoroughly enjoy my course.

I have had part time jobs working with young people for the past 5 years, varying from tutoring, mentoring and being a Girlguide leader - to my current job as a Student Ambassador, with the aim to inspire young people to come to University.

What can I offer to you?

Our tutorials will be led by you. What areas would you most like to cover? I believe in a 'chunk and check approach', which means we will cover a section (chunk) that the student finds difficult and will not move on until we have 'checked' that the student understands what has been taught; through using past paper questions, quizzes and flash cards.

Most of all remember that these sessions are for your benefit, and no two students learn the same. The tutorials should be fun and you should feel like you are constantly learning; if this is not the case, we can try different methods until we find a way of learning that suits you.

Science/ Maths Tutoring: Being on a science course at university i have a particular interest and experience in tutoring science students at all levels of study.

11+ examination: I have 2 years experience tutoring for the 11+ grammar school exams (aswell as sitting the exam myself- be it 10 years ago!!) so am well suited to teaching verbal reasoning skills aswell as Maths and English techniques for the exams.

BMAT, University admissions: Having sat the BMAT and successfully got onto a Veterinary Course at University I am happy to provide tutorials for any potential Vet/ Medical students to help with admissions exams or personal statements.

What is the difference between osmosis and active transport?

First of all we have to understand that there are concentration gradients  between cells and the outside. A higher concentrationof solute is when there is more solute (eg salt) dissolved in the solvent (e.g water)- so 10g of salt dissolved in 50ml of water is more concentrated than 5g of salt d...

First of all we have to understand that there are concentration gradients between cells and the outside. A higher concentration of solute is when there is more solute (eg salt) dissolved in the solvent (e.g water)- so 10g of salt dissolved in 50ml of water is more concentrated than 5g of salt dissolved in 50ml of water.

Osmosis is the diffusion of water molecules, down the concentration gradient, through a partially permeable membrane.  The water moves fro the area of high concentration of water to low concentration water.

Active transport is the movement of solutes from an area of low concentration to high concentratio so against the concentration gradient. It may help to consider this as the opposite to osmosis. Because you are going against the gradient active transport requires a pump or carrier protein in the cell membrane and therefore energy (made through respiration).

Why is the human circulation em called a double circulation system?

In the double circulation system there are two routes that the blood can take:

1. Through the lungs

2. To the rest of the body

The blood starting in the heart has no oxygen in it. It flows from the heart and goes through the lungs, this is where it picks up the oxygen. The blood returns to the heart where it is redirected to go on the second route. This oxygenated blood is now delivered around the rest of the body via arteries, once the oxygen has been dropped off at the muscles (which need it for respiration) it returns to the heart deoxygenated via the veins.

Then the cycle repeats itself.
