About me

Hello!

I'm Jessica, a veterinary student at the University of Liverpool. I particularly love science, and am excited to pass on my knowledge and explain difficult things in a fun and easy to understand way as I know sometimes school life can make things seem dull. I'm also able to offer help with English and Maths.

I grew up with 4 younger siblings, so I have a lot of patience and a friendly attitude to offer. I've also had experience in nurserys and as a volunteer in the guiding association, as well as the obvious animal knowledge.

The lessons

Every session will be catered towards what you're struggling with. It's easy to feel you're struggling with everything, but we'll go through the basics first to reassure you this isn't the case. Then we will go through the more complicated bits, and I will explain to you in new ways until we find one that works.

There's hundreds of ways of learning, and I myself benefit from a mixture. We'll work with diagrams, videos and clear explanations until you're confident you could teach me! Sessions should be fun, as well as academic and I will endeavour to make sure this is the case. 

Revision

If you've come to me to help your preparation for exams, you're in the right place. As well as going through the knowledge you need I'll give you ideas for revision techniques so you feel well prepared on the day!

What now?

If you'd like to ask any questions, send me a Webmail or book a Meet the Tutor Session- we can find a time that suits you, and go from there! We'll discuss your exam board and a few topics you want to start with so I'm well prepared for our first session.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Questions Jessica has answered

What is a mole?

Rather than the furry creature, in chemistry a mole is a unit used to measure substances. Its equivalent to 6x1023 atoms, the number of carbon atoms in 12g of carbon.

To find a mole of a substance we use the equation Mass=Mr x mol (easily remembered as mass=Mr Mole). We can rearrange this to give Mass/Mr= Mol.

Therefore to find the amount of moles of a substance we need the mass and Mr. The Mr (relative formula mass) can be easily calculated using the relative atomic masses(Ar) of each element, as found in the periodic table. For example the Mr of water, H2O, is 18. This is because the Ar of hydrogen is 1, and we have 2 hydrogen atoms. The Ar of Oxygen is 16. 16+2=18.

If we have 5g of H2O, and the Mr is 18

Mol= mass/Mr   mol=5/18 =0.278 (rounded to 3dp)

What is an allele?

Alleles are different forms of a gene. For example, given the gene for eye colour there would be many different colours available. People with brown eyes would have the allele of the eye colour gene coding for this.

Take a group of friends; one friend has blue eyes, one brown, one green. Each of them has the gene for eye colour, but each has a different type- a different allele of the gene.

You will inherit one allele from each of your parents for each gene type. Some may be stronger, more dominant, than others. This will eventually determine which of these is expressed.
