About me

Aims and methods: I focus on breaking things down in to easy to digest pieces of information and will use a variety of methods to look at an aspect of your course. I will aim to make things clear and easy to remember, whilst also hoping to inspire interest and confidence in the subject. After initial contact and hearing about your course and what you as a student would like to focus on, I will read over the specification and be prepared to tackle sections in order of importance to you. About me: Hi! I'm a 2nd year Medical Sciences student at university looking to tutor in Biology and English Literature. I'm friendly and patient, understanding that everyone learns at their own speed and in different ways. I have an A* English Lit A-Level and thoroughly enjoy reading. I can help with, for example, text analysis, epxloring context and writing style, through looking at text in different ways and making discussion points. I can also help prepare for Biology exams, I love the subject and have covered a wide range of areas, in GCSE, Alevel and throughout my degree so far. My favorite topics are human biology based, specifically to do with the circulatory system and immunology.  I look forward to meeting you! Aims and methods: I focus on breaking things down in to easy to digest pieces of information and will use a variety of methods to look at an aspect of your course. I will aim to make things clear and easy to remember, whilst also hoping to inspire interest and confidence in the subject.

Questions Catherine has answered

What is an antibiotic and how does it work?

Antibiotics are drugs prescribed to people to fight bacterial infections. They work in the body to target specific bacteria that are circulating or found withing tissues, but cannot work within cells (for example on viruses). An example is penicillin. Each bacteria respond differently to certain antibiotics and so the right one must be found for a certain infection.

They target bacteria in different ways, including, disrupting its DNA, creating an unfavourable environemtnt for it to live in and preventing reproduction.

A lot of research is still required in this area as overuse of antibiotics in populations is causing bacteria to develop resistance. The drugs then are inactive against the infection and new ones must be found. Because of this, doctors are trying to limit distribution of antibiotics.

What is the difference between sexual reproduction and asexual reproduction?

Sexual reproduction involves the fusing of 2 gametes (male and female). This results in a variety of offspring as the genetic information is mixed.

Asexual reproduction requires only1 parent. Offspring are all genetic clones as there is no variation
