Degree: Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine (Bachelors) - Nottingham University
Hey! I am a Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine student at the University of Nottingham. I started tutoring at school when I was 13 and now have built up my skills to specialise in GCSE's and A Levels. I had volunteered abroad to Thailand and tutored Maths to an orphanage and helped them gain a better understanding of the subject which hopefully I can do for you
I achieved the Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine Year 1 Award at the University of Nottingham for getting one of the highest marks in the year.
During our sessions, I will provide a foundation for you to work with as you need to understand all the basics before tackling the more complicated stuff. I will listen to what you struggle at and cater the sessions to cover these topics, plus it would really help to know which examination board you sit. I will also do a recap session at the beginning of every session so you fully understand the topic so you can ace the questions. Once all that has been done, we can work through the past papers and eventually I would like you to explain what you've learnt to me, so we can see what information you are missing out on and improve from there until you are absolutely confident.
If you have any queries, feel free to contact and message me through the website and hopefully we can deal with your struggles together!

1) They contain a variable region also called the Fab region, allowing the attachment of an antigen to the antibody
2) They contain 2 light chains and 2 heavy chains allowing a sturdy structure, also allowing for 2 variable regions so multiple antigens can be attached
3) The variable region is specific to an antibody hence allowing specificity to different antigens
4) The antibody contains a constant region also called Fc which can bind to phagocytes
5) There is a hinge region between the polypeptide chains allowing flexibility of the antibody when attaching to the antigen
6) Disulfide bonds strengthen the bond between the heavy and light chains making it sturdy so it can attach easily to an antigensee more
