About me

Hi, my name is Ellen and I am a fourth year geology student at the University of Edinburgh. I have always loved geography and geology and will hopefully be able to pass that enthusiasm on to you!

Each tutorial will be focused on what you would like to go over or learn more about and can be tailored to how you learn best. I think understanding is the key component to doing well in exams, which I will be concentrating on in the tutorials. Practicing past exam questions and researching case studies can then supplement this knowledge.

I am a friendly, approachable and have a positive attitude. I have also had experience helping to teach geography classes in my final year at school.

If you interested or have any questions you would like to ask, please book a ‘Meet the Tutor Session’ or send me a message through ‘Webmail’.

I look forward to meeting you!

Questions Ellen has answered

Explain the formation of a waterfall

As water flows over underlying rocks, it erodes softer rock much faster than harder rock. This creates a small step in the steam or river. Over time this step gets larger and the harder rock is undercut. This eventually creates an overhang of the hard rock, which collapses with a lack of support. These rocks fall into the plunge pool at the bottom of the step/waterfall and aid erosion as they are swriled around. The waterfall moves upstream as this process is repeated and a steep-sided gully is eventually formed.

I would strongly recommend the use of diagrams while answering this question!
