About my sessions

Having only recently have completed GCSE’s and A-Levels I am very familiar with the syllabus', revision methods and exam technique that examiners look for. My teaching style revolves around the student, I understand that rote-learning and simply dictating information to the student passively is relatively ineffective, thus I tailor my lessons and revision to the needs of the student. This can include making mind maps together, making flash cards, making short condensed notes the student can then record so a voice recording is always available on hand.


At the begging of each lesson I tend to either have a recap of what was covered in the last lesson or will put together a quiz to consolidate any information. Moreover, at the end of the lesson I tend to set a couple of exam questions, depending on the subject and expect the student to do this in their own time prior to the next lesson so I can mark this and give them feedback at the beginning of the next lesson.

Nish has been working with my son for a few weeks now and already I have seen a marked improvement in his studies. Her sessions are concise, well prepared and she doesn't waste a minute of the booked hour. As a parent I am very happy with her and can't recommend her highly enough.

Nish has been a great help with building my son's confidence in preparation for a mock exam. We will be back to Nish for his final A-Levels.

Questions Nish has answered

Explain how mutations can be beneficial, neutral or have harmful effects on the way a protein functions;

Beneficial - The mutation changes the sequence of amino acids in a way that the phenotype expressed will give the organism an advantageous characteristics. For example, some mutations mean that bacteria are resilient to antibiotics, this means they will survive.Neutral - This is when the mutation happens in a non-coding region of the DNA. We call it silent mutation because although the sequence of amino acids has changed, it will still code for the same protein having no effect.Harmful - The mutation will change the sequence of amino acids and hence the phenotype ( the physical characteristic expressed) the resulting characteristic is then harmful for example, paler skin in a hot climate would burn more easily opposed to a phenotype for darker skin.Beneficial - The mutation changes the sequence of amino acids in a way that the phenotype expressed will give the organism an advantageous characteristics.

What is the self fulfilling prophecy?

Labelling and the self-fulfilling prophecy explains criminal and anti-social behaviour in terms of societal factors, specifically the way others behave towards you.The self-fulfilling prophecy shows how a belief or expectation of a person/group whether correct or not, affects the way a person/group will behave.The concept of labelling is crucial. Labelling is using a generic and broad term to describe members of a minority group. The labels use inferior terms and imply negative connotations. The term is linked with the concept of stereotyping, which is a generalised and simplified view of an individual or situation that is based on limited evidence. E.g. most criminals are working class.Labelling someone a criminal and then treating that person as such may produce criminal behaviour in the person who is subjected to this expectation.This is because they see themselves in terms of the criminal label. The person fulfils the criminal label and becomes what the label says – a criminal. The prophecy fulfils itself.Labelling and the self-fulfilling prophecy explains criminal and anti-social behaviour in terms of societal factors, specifically the way others behave towards you.The self-fulfilling prophecy shows how a belief or expectation of a person/group whether correct or not, affects the way a person/group will behave.The concept of labelling is crucial.
