About me

About Me:

I am a biochemistry student at the University of Birmingham.  I have always had a real passion and love for all things science and maths and I hope that my tutorials will instil this love in you too.

I’m very patient and friendly.  I’ve been a scout leader since the age of 14, so I have a lot of experience teaching people as young as 6 years old.  In my gap year I spent it doing youth work, volunteering for a charity and had regular tutees during this time.

My Sessions:

During the sessions, you will guide what we cover in both maths and science a basic understanding is key so before we do exam questions I will focus on this.

I will use diagrams, analogies, etc. to explain it until you are confident enough that you can explain it to me, the cat, the dog…

I hope that the sessions will be fun! A lot can be achieved in 55 mins - science and maths are really interesting, amazing and logical and if you don’t already I hope you will grasp this before you leave the tutorial session.

What next?

If you have any questions send me a ‘WebMail’ or book a ‘Meet the Tutor Session’ both accessible through this website!  Remember to tell me your exam board and what you’re struggling with.

I look forward to meeting you!

Make X the subject of the equation (9x-7)/3 = 8y

To start solving a question like this you want to do it in a set of steps: Step 1: Get rid of the division.  To do thsi you need to do the opposite function.  The opposite of division is multiplication so you multiply both sides by what you've divided by (in this case 3).  So the equation woul...

To start solving a question like this you want to do it in a set of steps:

Step 1: Get rid of the division.  To do thsi you need to do the opposite function.  The opposite of division is multiplication so you multiply both sides by what you've divided by (in this case 3).  So the equation would now read: 9x-7 = 24y

Step 2: Get 9X on it's own on   To do this you need to get rid of the -7.  The opposite function of subtraction is addition so you +7 to both sides.  So the equation would now read: 9x = 24y+7

Step 3: Get X on it's own.  9x means 9 multiplied by X so you use the opposite function again, In this case you would divde both sides by 9 to get x on it's own.  The equation would now read x = (24y+7)/9

What are atoms?

Atoms are small particles that make up everything.  If you picture an object made up from mini-footballs then that's what the atoms look like that make up the object just on a much, much smaller scale. Atoms have protons (positive charges) , Electrons (negative charges) and Neutrons (neutral ...

Atoms are small particles that make up everything.  If you picture an object made up from mini-footballs then that's what the atoms look like that make up the object just on a much, much smaller scale.

Atoms have protons (positive charges) , Electrons (negative charges) and Neutrons (neutral charges) in them.  It depends on the atom as to how many of each you have. Standard atoms make up the periodic table and are called elements.  Elements are atoms in their most basic form and it's from these elements that everything is made-up from.

What is genetic dominance?

Genes are sections of our DNA that have a specific genetic code.  When you're born you get a copy of each gene from your mother and a copy of each gene from your father.  These copies are called alleles.  For each gene you get 2 copies of each allele and these can be dominant, receissive or co...

Genes are sections of our DNA that have a specific genetic code.  When you're born you get a copy of each gene from your mother and a copy of each gene from your father.  These copies are called alleles.  For each gene you get 2 copies of each allele and these can be dominant, receissive or co-dominant.

If you have 2 dominant alleles e.g. RR (red colour in plant), then the plant would be red.

If you have 2 recessive alleles e.g. rr (white colour) then the plant would be white.

If you have 1 dominant and 1 recessive  e.g. Rr then the plant would be red as the dominant allele is always shown.

Incomplete dominance  is where neither allele is dominant e.g. R = red, W = white.  Both alleles are expressed and contribute equally to the phenotype (or colour).  So RR = red, WW = white and RW = pink.

Co-dominance is where both alleles are dominant e.g. Blood Type AB
