I am a medical student at University College London (UCL) who has always had a real passion for science and finding out how things work.
I adore Medicine, I very much enjoyed learning about biology, maths and chemistry at school and I would love to help you succeed and gain confidence in the areas you struggle in. Having performed very well in my exams, I want to help others to do the same and to enjoy these subjects as much as I do.
I am very enthusiastic and friendly and I love working with people. I have taught GCSE and A-level students in the past and I have fantastic notes and practice questions ready to use from when I took these exams. In terms of other teaching experience, last year I taught a class of 11-15 year olds about anxiety disorder, and this year I am teaching anatomy to 1st and 2nd year medical students. In my free time, I really enjoy playing badminton, volunteering, rock climbing and reading.
My main aim is to help you enjoy and feel confident in these subjects and to help you to perform to the best of your ability in tests and exams.
Testing and practice is key, and this will be one of the areas I will focus on. You will guide the session, pick a topic you struggle with or don’t understand fully, or even the entire syllabus, I will help you with anything and everything you have trouble with. Then we will work through lots of practice questions together to help strengthen your knowledge.
I will tailor sessions to your learning style and use as many different ways (analogies, diagrams, etc.) as possible to explain a topic, until you feel that you completely understand it and that you can explain it to me.
I hope that you find the sessions fun! A lot can be achieved in one session, especially if it is enjoyable and interactive. Strangely enough, maths and science can be really fun to learn about, and hopefully you’ll find that you love it as much as I do.
Applying to medical school - BMAT
Applying to Medical school can be very stressful but it doesn’t have to be. I have written a number of applications and succeeded/endured in the BMAT and UKCAT. I hope I can pass on as much of my wisdom as I can and I will help train you in the art of the BMAT to get those top marks and into those top universities.
If you have any questions at all, feel free to 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 topics you're struggling with.
Look forward to hearing from you soon!

The turning point of a curve occurs when the gradient of the line = 0
The differential equation (dy/dx) equals the gradient of a line. Therefore in this case the differential equation will equal 0.
dy/dx = 0
Let's work through an example. If the equation of a line = y =x2 +2x
Therefore the differential equation will equal
dy/dx = 2x +2
therefore because dy/dx = 0 at the turning point then
2x+2 = 0
2x+2 = 0
This is the x- coordinate of the turning point
You can then sub this into the main equation (y=x2+2x) to find the y-coordinate. So if x = -1:
y = (-1)2+2(-1)
y = (1) +( - 2)
y = 3
This is the y-coordinate of the turning point
Therefore the coordinates of the turning point are x=-1, y =3
= (-1,3)see more
Eutrophication is the loss of oxygen in a body of water (e.g. pond or lake). This is usually due to algal bloom caused by artificial fertilisers and other chemicals being washed into the water by rain.
The 5 stages:
1.Chemicals/ artificial fertilisers: Chemicals and artificial fertilisers used on the land (e.g. for farms/crops) are washed into a pond/ lake by rainwater.
2. Algal bloom: The excess nutrients from the chemicals cause the algae in the water to grow at a fast rate and bloom over the surface of a pond/lake.
3. Plants die: The algal bloom on the surface of the water blocks sunlight to the plants at the bottom of the pond/lake. As plants require light for photosynthesis and this light is blocked, the plants die.
4. Decomposition of the dead plants and algae: The algae eventually die and bacteria decompose both the dead plants and the dead algae, further using up the oxygen in the pond/lake.
5. Fish die: As there are no longer plants to supply oxygen to the water and bacteria are decomposing dead plants and algae further using up the oxygen, the oxygen in the lake depletes. As there is not enough oxygen in the pond/lake to survive, the fish suffocate and die.
At ths point the pond/lake is anoxic (no oxygen in the water) and only bacteria/aglae which do not need oxygen to survive are left.see more
