About me

About Me:

I am a History student at UCL. My interests in History are mainly modern, focusing on the Russia and the Cold War and more recently the history of political thought and tea. I also have a love of Science from my A-levels. I do hope this love comes across in my tutoring to encourage you in these subjects.

I am very friendly and have a lot of patience. I have helped to teach English to foreign students from ages 8 upwards, as well as helping with a local scout group and youth club. In my spare time, I enjoy cross country, reading and going out with my friends.

Tutoring:

Whilst I am tutoring it will be up to you to decide what is covered. I am willing to help from basic questions of understanding, to more complex exam technique and problems. 

In essay subjects, it is important to have a clear sense of structure before you write anything down. I can help you build confidence by giving advice on technique and essential historical skills. This can be achieved by looking at past papers and your own writing to allow improvement and progress.

With science, it is all about basic understanding and then building more complex mechanisms into these basic ideas. I am willing to help with things that you don’t understand and then build these into the more complex mechanisms.

B-Lymphocytes remain in the bone marrow until they mature and then spread throughout the body, concentrating in the lymph nodes and the spleen.

They express a specific intrinsic protein called a B-cell receptor, each B-lymphocyte has a different shaped receptor. This receptor can bind antigens floating in the blood plasma.

The binding of an antigen to a b-cell receptor is insufficient to stimulate a response. The binding of a T-helper cell is also required to activate the B-cell.

Activation

Binding of an  antigen stimulates endocytosis and antigen presentation via an MHC II (Major Histocompatibility Complex 2) molecule.

Activated B-Cells then undergo clonal expansion (the production of identical B-cells by mitosis)

Some B-Cells can then differentiate into plasma cells which produce antibodies very quickly. The antibodies are secreted into the blood and lymph systems.

They do not live long and they are specific to the antigen that was originally recognised.

Other B-Cells differentiate into memory cells. They remain circulating in the body for long periods of time.

If the same antigen is reintroduced, memory cells divide rapidly and develop into plasma cells and more memory cells.

How to write a History Essay?

There’s no simple way to write a history essay. Even those who have been in the field for years are not always perfect. However, there are some tips that always apply.

1. Structure- Always make sure your essay has some form of structure. Consists of:

 Introduction- summating your argument, what you are about to argue 

Paragraphs- the main body of your essay, here is where you argue and consolidate with own knowledge. 

Conclusion- The summation of your whole argument.

2. Answer the Question

This is something that is crucial to do. When writing consider what is the question asking. Make sure that every paragraph links with the original question. That way you write clear and concisely.

3. Change and Continuity

This is something all historians love, how have things changed over time, and if not why haven’t they?                  

This is something that can be quite challenging to do, but comes naturally after a while. The basic principle is to consider what has changed and what caused this change. Once you have done this it brings up questions of the importance of the change to the period you are studying allowing further examination of the topic usually in relation to the question you are answering.

4. Don’t Panic

Essays are scary things just take your time and think it through and you’ll be fine.
