About me

About me I am currently studying Biomedical Science at King's College London because it combines my two most loved subjects, Biology and Chemistry. My enthusiasm for all things science make me want to keep learning and also use my knowledge to help and inspire others to learn too! I'm patient, friendly and easy to talk to. During my time in sixth form I assisted a year seven in reading sessions to build his confidence and ability. My peers also often turned to me when they needed help understanding key concepts during my time in school and sixth form. The Sessions During the sessions it is up to you what we cover; you will guide the session. We will go over key concepts until you can explain it back to me then we will tackle questions to test and apply your understanding; an essential part of learning and consolidating knowledge.  I understand new concepts can be hard to keep up with in school especially if a teacher can't explain in a way that resonates with the student. I often found that I had my own style of learning and didn't always learn in school lessons so I taught myself alot of content, hence I am more than happy to spend time discussing study and revision methods and tips with the student to boost confidence and productivity.  I'll try my best to clearly explain things with words, diagrams and analogies. If it is still unclear to you I will find different ways to explain it because I am here for you! I'll also try my best to make the 55 minutes fun and I'd love to see my passion for science be passed on to you if not already there. I have been through the pressure of exams and information overloads In school so I aim to provide useful but calm tutorials for you to learn in. What Next If you have any questions you can send me a webmail or book a 'meet the tutor session' through the website. Remember to let me know what you are struggling with and your exam board. I am available most weekdays from 3pm onwards, and also on weekends late morning, afternoons and evenings.  I look forward to meeting you!

We have had Fabiha tutor our daughter for Biology and Chemistry for the new A levels and have been very impressed with her work. Would recommend Fabiha to anyone looking for peer to peer teaching and learning, this and the tools and excellent communications that Mytutor offer.

Questions Fabiha has answered

How does ionic bonding work and what is the structure of an ionic compound?

Ionic bonds exist between metals and non metals for example sodium and chlorine. Metals have one to three electrons in their outer shell which can be transferred to a non metal. This means that the metal now has a full outer shell, as does the non metal because it has gained electrons in its outer shell. The transfer of electrons forms one positive and one negative ions which are held together by strong electrostatic forces of attraction. Therefore an ionic compound is composed of many oppositely charged ions arranged as positive-negative-positive, to minimise repulsion of like charges, and this results in a giant lattice structure.

What is meant by the phrase saltatory conduction?

Saltatory conduction refers to the passage of an action potential along a myelinated neurone. Myelin is a lipid that forms a fatty sheath around the neurone axon and it is an electrical insulator. This means that an action potential cannot pass where there is myelin. However there are gaps in the myelin sheath called Nodes of Ranvier and action potentials can occur here because there is no myelin to stop it. Therefore the action potential 'jumps' from node to node. This process is called saltatory conduction and allows much faster passage of the action potential than in a non-myelinated neurone.
