I'm a 2nd year graduate entry medical student at the University of Nottingham, having previously acheived a 1st class honours in BSc Medical sciences at the University of South Wales. I love science and medicine and am really excited to have the chance to help students to build their confidence and knowledge in order to achieve their goals!
Outside of medicine, I enjoy music, climbing, kayaking and walking my dog. I strongly believe that having a few hobbies makes everything much better :)
I will build the sessions around your own goals, current level of knowledge and learning style. We can use past paper questions, diagrams, mind maps and anything else you find useful in our virtual classroom. Having taught other medical sciences and medical students as part of my degrees I am able to adapt my teaching to suit different individuals to ensure you are pregressing.
What I can help with-
I am comfortable in tutoring both GCSE and A level biology so please get in touch if you need help with this! Hopefully I can make it fun and engaging for you.
In addition to this, having been accepted into medical school on my first application I am happy to help with medical school preparation, be this UKCAT/GAMSAT exams, personal statement writing or interview preparation!
Don't hesitate to get in touch with me if you feel I could be of any use to you. I am flexible on when I can work and my availability isn't set in stone. Send me a message to arrange a free meeting :)

Yes! Although most universities look for As and A*s at A level for entry into their A100 (undergraduate) courses, there are other ways to get there!
A number of universities (Nottingham, Swansea, Liverpool, Warwick to name a few) now offer graduate entry medical degrees which are usually 4 years instead of 5. To apply to these you will need a 2:1 or above in any degree (I highly recommend a science one though).
For example, I applied to five medical science BSc's at A-level, got into my first choice, achieved a first, did my medical school preparation in my second year and got into Nottingham medical school on my first application.
Don't worry about it having taken longer, you will be so much more confident in your studying skills and knowledge having done a degree already!see more
A reflex is an innate (in built) action designed to keep an organism safe from harm. A good example of a reflex is to imagine you touch a hot pan, you immendiately withdraw your hand from the painful stimulus in order to prevent your finger from burning.
The main componants of the reflex arc are:
1.The sensory receptors (the receptors in your finger which feel the heat).
2.The sensory neurone which conveys this information to the spinal cord via a relay neurone.
3.The motor neurone which acts to contract the effector muscle and relax the antagonistic muscle to move your hand away.
Each of these neurones communicates with another via a synapse. These work by one nerve ending receiving the electrical impulse and releasing chemicals called neurotransmitters between the gap. These then bind to receptors on the other nerve ending which stimulates the electrical impulse to then transmit along that axon.
Reflexes occur without having to think about it and are therefore autonomic responses. They are extremely important in minimising damage done to ourselves.see more
Phospholipids are arranged in a bilayer (a double layer). They have hydrophobic tailss (made of fatty acids) and hydrophilic heads (made of a phosphate group).
The hydrophilic heads are to the outside and the tails to the inside.
