About me

Science?- Yes, please! Who I am? I am Biochemistry with German student at Imperial College London. I am patient and friendly to explain you things that you are struggling with. In my free time I play tennis and dance Punjabi. I have been teaching biology for the past few years- this experience showed me different ways of thinking people have. I hope that my tutorials will bring you passion and motivation to explore science Tutorials During the session I explain you step by step the problem. Understanding in science is essential so we will discuss any questions and difficulties you have. Variety of diagrams and analogies will be used to ensure you can tell me what we have learnt. Moreover, by doing past papers you will gain confidence to be successful in your final exam. Each session will be summarised in bullet points to make sure you have notes to revise. Science is cool and makes fun! I hope my session will be enjoyable and leave you with a motivation and passion. Applying to university? I can help. Writing personal statement is challenging but I can give you some hints that made mine successful. The answer is hidden in simplicity and creativity that you have! Questions? If you have any, please leave a message in ‘Webmail’ or book a session with me. Remember to mention your exam board and problem that you have. I am more than happy to help you! Marek

Questions Marek has answered

How does DNA replication take place?

Imagine DNA to be two strings that are twisted together. In order to separate them, particular enzymes should be used. Firstly, helicase unwinds and unzips the helix at place called replication fork. Moreover, gyrase enzyme helps to relief the strain. Now we have two single strands (as if we had single strings) ready to be complementary paired. Recall that in DNA replication adenine pairs with thymine via triple hydrogen bonds and cytosine pairs with guanine via double hydrogen bonds. Interesting is that adding nucleotides (building blocks of DNA) occurs differently on both strands. RNA primase is used to attach RNA primers. Then polymerase III is an enzyme responsible for single nucleotides attachment. One strand- leading one has nucleotides attached continuously while the other- lagging strand has Okazaki fragments- segments of newly added nucleotides in a disocntinuous way. After nucleotides addition DNA polymerase I replaces RNA primers with DNA. Eventually, ligase joins Okazaki fragments together- genetic material is replicated, ready to enter mitosis and divide.Imagine DNA to be two strings that are twisted together.
