About me

All About Me: 

I am currently studying Veterinary Science in my final year 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 7 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.

About my sessions

Our tutorials will be led by you. 

i am happy to plan tutorials around students individually; whether that means just covering whatever they are finding tricky that week, doing past papers or covering whole units.

What areas would you most like to cover? Ibelieve 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.

I am also happy to teach whole units / topics over a period of time with regular tutorials and can provide students with comprehensive notes and revision materials for most of the major exam boards.

I am currently looking for students in:

-Biology, Chemistry and Physics GCSE

- GCSE Maths

- Biology A level

- Veterinary personal statements

Please read my reviews for feedback on my tutorials in all of the above topics in the past year

Elizabeth tutored my daughter over 2016/2017 for her Science GCSEs. My daughter was extremely stressed about Science beforehand! Elizabeth really made a huge difference!! She was ultra clear in explaining the concepts -indeed ignited more interest in the subjects, really organised with material and requirements and extra flexible for my daughter's specific needs nearer the exams! Above all we all knew Elizabeth really cared! Hand on heart, my daughter couldn't have achieved what she did without Elizabeth being on board! I would highly recommend her - Any student would be in good hands!

Questions Elizabeth has answered

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 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.
