Degree: Medicine (Bachelors) - Bristol University
My name is Flo and I am studying medicine at Bristol University which I am thoroughly enjoying. I always had a flair for maths and science at school and found studying them rewarding but at times challenging! I am keen to use this experience in my tutoring to inspire students and help them achieve their full potential.
I am friendly and approachable and have a variety of experience working with younger students. I am a peer mentor to 1st year students starting university and have also done some mentoring and tutoring at school. Additionally, this year I worked with a charity in Uganda teaching about hand washing and water purification in primary schools. This was hard work but still very enjoyable – we had to be creative in finding solutions to overcome the language barrier!
I am happy to allow my tutees to direct the sessions and prioritise which areas they need help with. I will use a range of resources to help explain a topic, such as diagrams, presentations and scenarios. Once we have established a good understanding, I will help my tutees develop their knowledge further by asking them to explain concepts to me and working through exam questions.
Medical school applications
I have recently been through the process of applying to medical school and I understand how gruelling and stressful it can be! I remember how much I appreciated advice from older students as I found the vast quantity of information available very intimidating. I completed the UKCAT exam with a good score and subsequently received invitations to interview at all 4 of the medical schools I applied to.
If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website). Remember to tell me your exam board and what you're struggling with.
I look forward to meeting you!

- Following transcription, the mRNA (messenger RNA) leaves the nucleus via the nuclear pores and enters the cytoplasm. It then attaches to a ribosome.
- tRNA molecules in the cytoplasm carry a single amino acid. They also have 3 base pairs of RNA molecules that correspond to that amino acid. This is called the anticodon.
- A tRNA molecule with a complementary anticodon to the first codon (the start codon) of the mRNA molecule binds to the mRNA molecule. This is complementary base pairing.
- Hydrogen bonds form between the mRNA and tRNA molecules.
- A second tRNA molecule binds to the adjacent codon on the mRNA molecule. This allows a peptide bond to form between the protiens on the tRNA molecules.
- The peptide bond is formed by a condensation reaction.
- The first tRNA molecule leaves the ribosome.
- The ribosome moves along the mRNA and the process repeats. The length of the polypeptide chain increases and translation stops when the ribosome reaches the stop codon on mRNA.see more
