I am Maddy, a third year medical student at Newcastle University and I would be interested in teaching Biology (GCSE and A level), Maths (13 plus and GCSE) and Chemistry (GCSE).
Exams can be very difficult and you need all the help that you can get. I would love to be able to help you out with any questions that you have regarding these topics. I believe in keeping things simple i.e getting a clear understanding of the basic concepts and using those to build up your knowledge of the more complicated aspects. I also believe that testing and questioning your knowledge on the topic is the best way to retain learnt information.
I have been involved in the Medical Education Society where we run peer teaching groups for the junior years. Here we explain difficult concepts and identify the salient points in each topic for them to remember. I have also taught in a weekend club to children from 5-12 years during my time in school.
Applying to medical school is a long and daunting prospect. I have applied and been successful in getting a place in Newcastle, Manchester, Leicester and Liverpool. I have organised and worked closely with Discover Medicine, a Widening Participation Group that runs sessions on how to get into medical school. I have also been involved in interview preparation as part of the Medical Education Society. I can help with any queries that you may have on medical schools, UKCAT and interviews.
What happens next?
Just send me a message and we can arrange a time to meet-up. Please include details of your exam board and the topics that you struggle with before hand.

Cholera is single-celled organism that produces a toxin. The toxin attaches to the ion receptors in the small intestine which causes it to secrete chloride ions into the lumen. This then causes water to move in by osmosis (as the salt level is now higher in the lumen of the intestine) which can cause diarrhoea and dehydration.see more
An atom is made in such a way that the nucleus with the positive charges (protons) is in the centre and the negative charge (electrons) are arranged in shells around it.
All group 1 metals have one electron in its outer shell. As we go down the group, the atom gets bigger. The bigger the atom, the further away the last electron. Therefore, the attraction between the nucleus and the last electron gets weaker. This makes it easier for the atom to give up the electron which increases its reactivity.see more
