About me

Hello! 

A bit about me..

I'm currently studying Veterinary Science at the University of Bristol, having previously completed a degree in Zoology at the University of Leeds. I'm a patient person and think teaching others is a very rewarding experience.  In the past I have engaged with peer teaching and mentoring at school.  While at university I often find revising in small groups with friends beneficial and teaching each other aspects of the course increases your own level of understanding.

About my sessions

These sessions will be guided by you and the content you want to learn!  I will try to tailor my teaching to the best way you learn and maintain a balance between giving information and reflecting on your understanding.  Personally, I like to use pictures, diagrams and metaphors to increase understanding.  Furthermore, I really value 'teaching back to me' as a tool to confirm understanding and more importantly, build your confidence!

Get in touch!

Feel free to send me a message or book a 'Meet the Tutor' session so we can chat about your goals and what you would like help with.

I look forward to hearing from you!

The tutorials are clearly having an impact on Rosie and she is growing in confidence all the time. After this last session she was so pleased with the concepts that she had now picked up and was keen to talk about her learning. Thanks!

Questions Lorna has answered

Describe the basic structure of a DNA and complementary base pairing.

DNA is a large polymer consisting of two DNA strands that form a double helix.  Each strand is made up of bases.  In DNA, there are four different bases:

Adenine, Thymine, Cytosine & Guanine

Pairs of bases form chemical cross-links between the two strands of DNA to form the final double helix.  The base pairs always form a particular way:

- Adenine always pairs with Thymine (A --- T)

- Cytosine always pairs with Guanine (C --- G)

This process is called complementary base pairing.
