About me

About me & what you can expect I am a medical student at Bristol University with a passion for Biology, Chemistry and English. I have had lots of experience teaching, having tutored biology and chemistry extensively and spent my summer as an 11+ and English teacher at various schools. I love tutoring and will use all my experience to make our lessons engaging, productive and full of character! I am a versatile and understanding teacher, who will spend time building your confidence in each subject, ensuring that no stone is left unturned and that every topic is tested and taught in the style which best suits you. Above all, you’re the boss: let me know the areas which challenge you the most and ask me any question you like (remember, every question is important, no matter how silly you think it may sound)! Ultimately, our lessons are about getting you those grades and putting the enjoyment back into learning. In my experience, tutoring is most successful when grounded in the syllabus and supplemented by the regular practice of exam questions and techniques. Science Science is wonderful, it really is. I am fascinated in the world around us and how it works and why we’re here. Science should be taught by lovers of science and those focussed on bringing those worn-out textbooks to life! To get going or to find out more, get in contact with me via ‘webmail’ or book a ‘meet the tutor’ session. English & 11+ This year, I am pausing medicine to study medical humanities, an additional degree which allows me to pursue my interests in English literature and philosophy. I have enjoyed successful experience in teaching both English and 11+ and will welcome all students wishing to improve on their grades, better their essays or reach that lofty pass-mark! Don’t worry… I know what it’s like! Medical applications It would be a genuine pleasure to help you with your medical school application. I’ve been through it all before and I know the extent of the task you face! Be encouraged though, the reward is worth every ounce of effort you put in and whether it be reviewing your personal statement, running a mock interview or simply imparting some honest advice, I’m here to assist! To get going or to find out more, get in contact with me via ‘webmail’ or book a ‘meet the tutor’ session (both available through this website)! Thank you and I look forward to meeting you soon!  Ollie

Questions Oliver has answered

Explain how smoking can increase blood pressure?

There are two main reasons that smoking can increase blood pressure:

1. Cigarette smoke contains nicotine which, once inhaled, can enter the bloodstream and cause the release of adrenaline which increases the heart rate. Increasing the heart rate will also raise the blood pressure. 

2. Cigarette smoke also contains carbon monoxide which, once inhaled, can enter the bloodstream and bind to haemoglobin. This forms carboxyhaemoglobin, a molecule that oxygen cannot bind to. This results in a decreased concentration of oxygen in the blood which causes a compensatory rise in heart rate which, in turn, raises the blood pressure.

If you had to give one piece of advice about writing personal statements what would it be?

There are many handy tips to consider when writing your personal statement, but if I were to select just one it would be to ensure that each and every sentence is unique to you. Ask yourself:

1. Could any other candidate have written that sentence? 
2. What does that sentence add to the reader's impression of me? 

Generic sentences will switch-off the reader and no candidate wants to do that. A personal statement filled with anecdotes and insights will go far. Don't just say 'I found my work experience interesting and enjoyable', tell them why! What memorable moments occured? Who did you converse with? What were your ultimate impressions of the experience? These unique sentiments will transform an average personal statement into a fascinating one.

Why is a H+ ion referred to as a proton?

An atom of hydrogen contains 1 proton, 1 electron and 0 neutrons. When hydrogen loses an electron to become H+ only a proton remains. 

We can work out the number of neutrons an atom has by deducting the atomic number from the mass number. We know that hydrogen has 0 neutrons because 1 - 1 = 0.
