About me

Hello! I am a student reading Biochemistry at the University of Oxford. I greatly enjoyed science and math when I was at school and would love to help other students experience it in the same way that I did.

The Sessions

All students are different and I will tailor each session according to individual needs and preferences. I don’t have a rigid session plan: I will prepare sessions based on what the student wants to focus on and how that student likes to learn.

People always think I am crazy during exam periods, because they hear me in my room talking to myself. In fact, what they actually hear is me explaining a particular concept out loud to ensure that I have a proper understanding of it. Thus, through my sessions I hope to teach students to have a thorough enough understanding of a concept to be able to explain it back to me.

Experience

I have experience tutoring a range of subjects to help students pass Common Entrance exams. I also regularly teach swimming to disabled children, which in particular has taught me patience and persistence in conveying a concept.

What Next?

Feel free to send me a message so that we can arrange to meet through a “Meet the Tutor” session. Let me know if you have any questions and what you would like to work on.

I look forward to meeting you!

Questions Amber has answered

How can two brown-eyed parents have a blue-eyed baby?

Most of our characteristics, such as eye colour, are encoded by a pair of alleles. These are different forms of the same gene, one inherited from the father and one from the mother. You can get dominant and repressive alleles. Dominant alleles, such as brown-eye alleles, only need one copy of the allele in order for the characteristic to be expressed. Repressive alleles, such as blue-eye alleles, need two copies of the allele to be expressed. If a mother and father both have brown eyes but each carry the repressive blue-eye allele (i.e. they are heterozygous), there is a chance that the offspring may inherit two blue-eye alleles: one each from the mother and father. Thus the child would have blue eyes. We can use punnett squares to work out the probability of the offspring inheriting different allele combinations.
