About me

Hello!

My name is Sally, I am a second year at the University of Exeter where I am studying a Bsc degree in Biological Sciences with a placement year in industry with GlaxoSmithKline doing microbiology.

My experiences in school, college and university have given me a great insight in the world of biology and has affirmed this subject as a passion for life. I hope I can help you to enjoy it too!

I am a very approachable, friendly and patient tutor. I have had a lot of experience helping my younger brother and his friends revise for their GCSE exams and helping others in my own year. So there's no need to be nervous if there's something you don't understand. 

Tutoring Sessions:

It's a well known fact that everyone learns differently. So to find the way that works best for you in this experience we will use visual learning including diagrams, drawings and pictures. Auditory learning as we talk through and explain things, and finally reading and writing learning. 

I hope by helping to sort out any queries from bacteria and viruses all the way through to ecology and ecosystems I can help you to enjoy biology just as much as I do!

Sounds good?

If you're struggling with biology and need a bit of help, feel free to ask me any questions about this service by sending me a "Webmail" or by booking a "Meet the Tutor" session.

I look forward to meeting you!

Questions Sally has answered

Compare and contrast the similarities and differences between meiosis and mitosis.

Both are forms of cell division.

Both are used during gametogenesis (formation of gametes or sex cells such as spermatozoa and oocytes).

Only mitosis is used during cell division of somatic or body cells.

Meiosis is a longer and more complex process with eight stages (prophase one and two, metaphase one and two, anaphase one and two, telophase one and two). Mitosis only has four stages, prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase.

Due to the repetition of the stages, meiosis has two cell divisions and mitosis only has one cell division.

Due to this difference, meiosis produces four daughter cells that are haploid, and have half the number of chromosomes found in a somatic cell (in a human they would have 23 chromosomes, haploid is read as "n" in genetics). These daughter cells are also genetically different.

Mitosis however produces just two daughter cells which are diploid (therefore have 46 chromosomes) and are genetically identical, in genetics diploid is read as "2n".
