Me in a Nutshell
I am a young medical student who has an undying passion for science. Rather than let this passion sit around doing nothing I thought I would but it to good use and share with others with the hope that they to will eventually see the value of science. I also think teaching is a highly rewarding experience as watching a student grow and develop in a subject area is a mark of success of for both the student and tutor.
I have had previous teaching experience (although not in an academic setting) and have worked mostly with younger children (9 -13).
Biology Session (GSCE & IB)
I personal think that Biology is the most artistic of all the science and as a former lover of art this makes it the most appealing science to me. Therefore I want the session to reflect this. I will mostly try and make the session visual and casual. I do not want to spend an hour lecturing but rather the session have a two-way channel of communcation. The student will steer the lesson in their chosen direction and they will decide what they want to gain from it. My role will be to step in when there are gaps and provide an alternative explaination if they don't understand a certain topic. At the end of every session the student choose whether they want to do a quick 10 minuite quiz of the session or if they want to teach back to me what they learnt. (The philosophy behind latter option is that one of the most effective ways of retaining information is by teaching what you have learnt to someone else. This definately helped me.)
So you wanna be a doctor...
I can still clearly remember the rough journey of getting into Medicine. From my personal statement to UKCAT to the interveiw. I felt like I had to jump through so many hoops and that I could trip and fall at any of these hoops. If you feel the same then you may benefit from a personal mentor. As your mentor I will give you the 101 of getting into medicine. I will guide you on what kind of work experience you should look for what to expect at the interview selecting a uni to suite your strengths ect. I will also be here to answer any question that you may have. However ultimately no one can make you get into medicine they can only guide you. You must have the drive to put in the work.
NOTE: I do not cover BMAT or Oxbridge applicants and I do not tutor for UKCAT or give specialised help with the personal statement. I will just provide generic advice.

The secondary structure of a protein refers to the basic foldings of a protein the forms of:
1. an alpha helix
2. a beta-pleated sheet
These foldings are determined by hydrogen bonds. These hydrogen bond form between the N-H bond and the C=O bonds of adjacent amino acids.
The tertiary structure of a protein refers to more extensive foldings of a protein giving it a more unique shape.
These folding are determined by the interations of R groups with other amino acids and its environment.
These interactions include:
o Disulfide bridges
o Ionic bonds
o Hydrophillic anf hydrophobic interactions
o Extra hydrogen bonds (formed by R groups only)see more
