I am a first-class graduate in Natural Sciences and French from the University of Birmingham. I have always had a passion for sciences and languages and enjoy helping others to understand and learn. I am extremely patient, friendly and flexible. I have taught in numerous summer school camps, both for English and international students and understand the importance of clear explanation, but also making learning fun! Last year, I also worked as a GCSE exam reader, helping students with learning difficulties. My younger sister has just completed her GCSEs, where I helped her learn and revise specific topics, so I completely understand the struggles of revising for formal exams for the first time. To this end, I enjoy looking at new ways to learn, different revision techniques and believe everybody has a unique learning style. I spent my third year at university abroad in Lyon in France, and have worked in Central America so can communicate in both Spanish and French. I am passionate about French culture and understand first-hand the challenges of picking up a new language.

What is the difference between Mitosis and Meiosis?
These processes are easily mixed up. Both Mitosis and Meiosis are typed of cell
division, but the 2 processes end up with different results! I always find it
helpful to think of it like this: MiTosis - (with a T for two)= gives rise to
TWO identical cells. MEioSis (no T) = gives rise to FOUR n...These processes are easily mixed up. Both Mitosis and Meiosis are typed of cell division, but the 2 processes end up with different results!
I always find it helpful to think of it like this:
MiTosis - (with a T for two)= gives rise to TWO identical cells.
MEioSis (no T) = gives rise to FOUR non-identical cells
(has an E and S) = gives rise to egg and sperm cells
The other difference between mitosis and meiosis is whether the end product is DIPLOID or HAPLOID.
You can think of diploid as being the normal number of chromosomes in a cell, whereas HAploid cells have HALF the normal number of chromosomes.
In mitosis, the cell wants to replicate itself to produce two identical cells with the correct number of chromosomes. So mitosis produces diploid cells.
In meiosis sex cells are produced.
Sex cells or gametes (egg and sperm) have a haploid number of chromosomes. This is because when sex cells they fuse together at fertilisation they want to make the correct number of chromosomes in the cell. Each sex cell will have half the normal number of chromosomes so when they fuse together this give rise to the normal (diploid) number.
So Meiosis produces haploid cells.
So in conclusion, mitosis and meiosis are both types of cell division. Mitosis gives rise to two identical diploid cells, whereas meiosis gives rise to four non-identical sex cells (gametes) that are haploid.
