Degree: Medicine with intercalated BSc Psychology (Other) - University College London University
Hi! My name is Daisy and I am a third year medical student at University College London which I enjoy immensely. I have always loved science and maths so hopefully I can lend some of my passion to those who are finding these subjects a bit of a struggle!
Students choose whether they would like to do general exam practice by going through past papers or would like help with a particular topic agreed in advance. I endeavour to make sessions fun and imaginative - I know I'm much more likely to remember something if I'm learning in new and inventive ways!
We will go through exam technique, tricky topics and methods you can use to revise on your own between sessions to help achieve the top grades which are fully achievable with a bit of hard work from myself and from students!
Achieving a qualification to teach tennis to children from 5-16 gave me valuable skills, I learnt to teach in a friendly, encouraging and enthusiastic way. At school, I always enjoyed studying for exams with friends. I strongly feel that talking about a subject, both hearing different explanations and learning to efficiently explain something yourself, is one of the best ways to achieve a comprehensive understanding.
Still one of the toughest goals for a science student, getting into medical school is a little easier when you know someone on the inside! I can help with personal statements, interview technique and explain what each medical school is looking for in an applicant to help students achieve a coveted place.

Please don't hesitate to arrange a meeting session with me, there are absolutely no obligations and I can promise to meet every new face with a smile.
I look forward to seeing you!

Answering questions in biology that offer more marks is all about key words - usually the examiner has a few of these in front of them that offer a mark simply for using the word in your answer. The good thing for students is that these are often the same in similar questions, so you can learn to look for questions on particular topics and include those key words you've learnt for that topic. For example, a 4 mark question on gene modification if probably looking for the key words 'enzymes', 'splicing' and 'replication'.see more
The most important thing to remember is that type I diabetes is genetic and type II diabetes is mostly influenced by environmental factors (although there is thought to be some genetic influence). Patients with type I diabetes cannot produce insulin and therefore must carefully monitor their blood glucose concentration in order to self administer the correct levels of insulin. Patients with type II diabetes are insensitive to insulin; they may still be producing their own insulin but their body is not responding to it. The most effective treatments for type II diabetes at an early stage are lifestyle changes, including increased exercise and diet changes to decrease sugar intake and generally encouraging weight loss.see more
