Degree: Palaeobiology and Palaeoenvironments (Bachelors) - Birmingham University
My name is Kelly. I am 20 years old and I study Palaeobiology and Palaeoenvironments at the University of Birmingham. This sounds very complicated - but it's just fancy Biology! Prior to this, I studied a year of Biology at Imperial College London. This gives me good grounding to be able to tutor Biology up to A Level, and also Chemistry up to GCSE. I am also approachable, smiley and willing to make tutorials fun.
I have experience tutoring both younger children for the 11+, and also older students at GCSE and A Level. This summer I am revising the A level material including exam papers, so that I can tailor my tutorials to help with exam technique as well as content.
Just request a free meeting and we can discuss your needs. I request that you tell me what you are struggling on, so that you can get the most out of the sessions you are paying for. After this I can prepare some materials before our tutorial, then you can ask as many questions as possible - and I will be patient and friendly.

Pathogens are first recognised as a foreign body by the antigens on it's membrane, as they are non-self antigens. The body then triggers a response by attaching antibodies to these antigens. Phagocytes can detect antibodies with receptors on their surface, and they bind to the antibodies.
The phagocyte will then proceed to turn it's membrane inside out to engulf the foreign body and also the antibodies - which are then trapped inside a phagosome (which is a type of vacuole). Lysosomes containing enzymes fuse to the phagosome and dissolve the material inside. The products are absorbed into the cytoplasm.see more
The DNA molecule is found within the nucleus of the cell, organised into chromosomes. In humans, there are 46 chromosomes. The DNA molecule consists of organic bases joined by sugars and phosphate molecules.
The fossil record provides a comprehensive array of evidence for evolution. For example Darwin studied Brachiopods, and within rocks you can see the clear change in the Brachiopods through time. The fossil record also shows the potential ancestors for current extant species - for example Glyptodonts are the assumed ancestor for Armadillos. The discovery of Archeopteryx provides evidence for birds evolving from dinosaurs.
DNA as a universal molecule throughout all life forms suggest that life has evolved from one origin through many ancestors. Genes can be sequenced to look for percentage differences between species. Cytochrome C also provides strong evidence for evolution when it is sequenced in the same was as genes are. Differences between species show evidence for evolution from one another.see more
