Degree: Medicine MBBS (Bachelors) - University College London University
I am a medical student at Univeristy College London (UCL). I applied to study medicine because I absolutely love biology as a subject and I hope that I can use my passion for the subject to help as many people as I can in their studies.
I am also very interested in Spanish and Chemistry, having studied these subjects at A-level and I would love to run sessions in these subjects as well.
Having run several teaching sessions for younger students at medical school, I feel that I have a good amount of teaching experience.
What will the sessions be like?
The teaching sessions will be based around what you find difficult. We will cover the topics that you most struggle with or need some extra time in order to understand them.
As a guide, when covering a topic I will first discuss the course content in great detail with you, using a variety of diagrams, analogies and alternative ways of tackling the topic, until you feel that you have a deep understanding of the topic.
We will then go through practice questions specific to your syllabus for the particular content and we will then practice past paper questions, so that you will have a clear idea of how the questions will be laid out in an exam.
My aim is to make the sessions as fun and enjoyable as possible, as a comfortable environment is very important to learning well.
Medical School Applications
Having gotten into to medical school myself and having helped several other younger students through their applications, I am more than happy to help students applying, whether that is help with personal statements or advice about entrance exams.
Applying to medical school can be difficult, but it is always reassuring to have some guidance and I am more than happy to help!
Good luck and I hope to hear from you soon!

Both aldosterone and cortisol are produced in the adrenal cortex of the adrenal gland (which are situated above the kidneys on either side of the body).
Aldosterone is a mineralocorticoid and helps to control the concentrations of sodium and potassium in the body.
Cortisol is a glucocorticoid and helps to maintain the concentrations of carbohydrates and proteins in the body, and it is also released as part of the stress response. Too much cortisol can cause many problems in the body, such as Cushings syndrome.

Kuppfer cells are a specialised type of macrophage. They travel within the sinusoids of the liver and breakdown and recycle old red blood cells.
Red blood cells contain heamoglobin, and when haemoglobin is broken down it produces bilirubin. This is excreted as part of the faeces and gives it its brown colour.
