About me

Hi I'm Abi, a 1st year MSci Zoology student at the University of Exeter, Penryn Campus. I am absolutely loving my degree and am learning new and exiting things every second! I thoroughly enjoy anything biological related and am able to tutor Biology and Chemistry to A-level, and Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Geography at GCSE. I can also give you guidance on personal statements and university applications. It's a gruelling process, but I've been there! Trust me, it's worth it in the end!

I'm very friendly and approachable who is more than happy to help with any of your queries, nothing can sound too silly...most likely I've asked the question myself!

Tutorials can range in structure depending on how you wish to have the session. Sessions will be very casual and friendly so there's no need to worry! Whether you would like a Q & A or a more structured lesson on a topic you find difficult, just let me know prior to the session and I will organise that. Something I beleive particularly important that is fundamental to my revision is deeply understanding the topic rather than just memorising facts. It is much easier to have a broad field of knowledge and apply it than knowing defintions off by heart but not actually knowing what it means. This helps you much more in later life too (as I have found out!) and I will encorporate this into my tutorials.

I am also very happy to go through past papers with you as this is also a very effective revision techique. Just let me know the subject and exam board beforehand.

Please do not hesitate to give me a message and I will do my very best to help you out!

What is a free-radical?

Free radicals are highly unstable and reactive atoms or groups of atoms that have at least one unpaired electron. It is this unpaired electron that makes them very reactive as they are desperately trying to fill their outer s, p or d orbital in which only one other electron is needed to fill. ...

Free radicals are highly unstable and reactive atoms or groups of atoms that have at least one unpaired electron. It is this unpaired electron that makes them very reactive as they are desperately trying to fill their outer s, p or d orbital in which only one other electron is needed to fill.

Free radicals can be created by beaming UV light onto the sample (e.g. Cl2). It splits the molecule by heterolytic fission so each Cl gets one of the electrons from the shared bond.
