I am currently a 2nd year medical student studying at the university of Bristol. I have therefore always had a great interest in Biology, attaining an A* at A-Level. At school I was always involved in the peer mentoring schemes and really enjoyed helping those in the younger years to understand anything that they may have found difficult.
I am very patient and am able to expain things in a concise manner without over complicating things, or on the other hand over simplifying things.
During the Sessions
You will dictate what topics we cover, if theres specific areas that require a little more help than others we will go through these in depth first to ensure basic understanding is sound before attempting any exam questions.
Hopefully the sessions will be an enjoyable and more interactive way of learning and understanding, I plan to use different techniques (diagrams/analogies) whichever best cater to your preferred way of taking in information.
Applying to Medical School?
Having had experience both in panel interviews and also MMI, I understand how daunting and scary these seem so would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have on interviews/UCAS and getting in to medical school.
If you have any questions for me then please dont hesitate to contact me via webmail or with a meet the tutor session, both of which can be found using this website!
If you are interested in booking a session, then please don't forget to let me know which exam board you're studying and which area you are having difficulty with beforehand so that we can get the most out of the session.
Thanks very much, I look forwards to hearing from you soon!

Breathing begins with inhalation. This starts with the contraction of the diaphragm, which flattens on contraction pulling the lungs down. The intercostal muscles contract to move the lungs up and out. The contraction of these muscles increases the volume of the lungs, this reduces the air pressure in the lung to below that of the external air. This pressure difference forces air to move in to the lungs where gas exchange occurs. The relaxation of the diaphragm and intercostals reduces the volume of the lungs which therefore increases the air pressure inside the lung to that above the external air. This forces air out of the lungs. The cycle is then repeated.see more
Mitosis: One division occurs, two identical cells are formed, occurs in body cells involved in growth and repair.
Meiosis: Two divisions occur, four cells with genetic variation are formed, occurs in the formation of gametes (sex cells)
