About me

About me: Hi, my name is Upasana Topiwala and I am currently in my third year of medical school at the university of Birmingham. I've taken up tutoring in order to inspire my students to appreciate the importance of science in our lives. My aim is to adapting my teaching methods to each individual student’s learning styles, level and pace with the intention to make the subject as stimulating and enjoyable as I can. I am a very friendly and approachable person with plenty of experience in teaching and interacting with students. I have previously mentored Kumon students in maths as well as providing regular tutoring for students in biology both when I was in high school and when I travel to India during my holidays. Additionally, while being at university, I spent a year teaching first year medical students ‘Basic Life Support’ in order to help them gain this important qualification. My other interests involve ballet, Bollywood dancing, playing badminton and the flute. My session: In order to try and get the most out of each session, I want you to tell me what you would like to focus on and how you would prefer to learn. It is key to understand the basic concepts in science before approaching the more complex topics. I will try and make each session as fun as possible, using various learning aids such as diagrams and illustrations. These sessions are centred around you so I’m looking forward to working together and making these 55minutes as valuable as possible. Hopefully you will learn to love science and enjoy being challenged! Looking forward to meeting you!

Upasana helped me to cover topics I struggled with and ensure I had a clear understanding of them. She did this whilst moving and my pace and she used different methods to help me consolidate them. Great session!

Upasana really helped me secure my understanding of my topic by talking through it with me thoroughly. She ensured that I understood it before we moved on and she also gave exemplar exam questions throughout to reinforce the knowledge and better my exam technique. Overall, she has helped me a lot in gaining a much clearer and better grasp of the topics, whilst also making me feel at ease when I don't understand something (no matter how basic) at the same time as providing an enjoyable session.

Upasana's teaching method is very clear and focused and she truly helped me understand aspects of my Biology course that I previously found very difficult :)

Questions Upasana has answered

What are the differences between facilitated diffusion and active transport?

Facilitated diffusion doesn't require ATP whereas active transport does. This is because active transport involves the movement of particles against its concentration gradient, whereas facilitated diffusion involves the movement of particles down the concentration gradient. Active transport uses carrier proteins, whereas facilitated diffusion uses both carrier proteins and channel proteins.
