About me

I am 21 years old and currently in my 3rd Year of Medical School at Newcastle University. I have a natural love for science and I am enthusiastic about teaching others, with previous experience of tutoring students. I am also available to offer guidance for Medical School Applicants. A Level Biology Mentoring: I have an interactive approach to my teaching, I am very adaptable and have always received positive feedback with my previous tutoring. I like using diagrams and getting the student to answer questions to promote active learning. Throughout my education I have developed effective ways to learn the material needed for exams, which students often find extremely useful. As well as success in my A Levels, I was also awarded a Silver Medal in the British Biology Olympiad. My mindset towards learning and revision is that it doesn't have to take over your life. Short but active revision sessions have been proven to be the most effective, leaving time for a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Medical School Applicants: I applied to Medical School in 2013 and I have sat both the UKCAT and BMAT aptitude tests. I successfully secured 2 offers from Newcastle and Birmingham medical schools. I can provide help with all areas of the application: >Personal Statement >Aptitude Tests >Interview Techniques >Questions About Medical School During my time at university I have worked with the Medical School Council and I have a good insight into what they look for in prospective applicants. Although this is relevant to Newcastle, many of these fundamental skills and characteristics are found desirable by medical schools nationwide. A bit about myself: In the future, I am aspiring to be a surgeon. Away from medical school I am the captain of the University Men's Tennis Team and also enjoy cycling, skiing and travelling. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me through this website or book a “Meet the Tutor Session” to get going. Let me know what you would like to achieve for each session and remember to let me know your exam board! I look forward to meeting you!I am 21 years old and currently in my 3rd Year of Medical School at Newcastle University.

Questions Corey has answered

How does the body increase heart rate in response to exercise?

Heart rate is controlled by the AUTONOMIC nervous system. This is the branch of the nervous system which does NOT require voluntary thought and action, unlike the SOMATIC branch. This means it relies upon detecting chemical and pressure changes within the bodies blood vessels to make adjustments to the heart rate (without you even knowing). When you exercise, this is essential in order to increase OXYGEN delivery to the body’s tissues as they will be RESPIRING more. During exercise muscles use more O2 and produce CO2 as a waste product (aerobic respiration). This CO2 is carried in the blood to the lungs so that it can be exhaled, but whilst in the blood stream it undergoes a chemical reaction with H20 to form H2C03 (Carbonic Acid). Acidic substances LOWER the pH of the blood (the body controls pH HOMEOSTASIS within very tight ranges to ensure that cells are able to function). This drop in pH is detected by specialised chemoreceptor cells located in the walls of the carotid artery (at the point where the common carotid bifurcates in the neck). These cells send this information to the Cardiac Acceleratory Centre in the Medulla Oblongata in the Brain Stem. In response, The CAC in the Medulla increases the FREQUENCY of impulses along the SYMPATHETIC chain of the autonomic nervous system which terminate on the Sino-Atrial Node in the heart. This causes the SAN to increase its rate of fire, increasing the heart rate. The increase in heart rate allows more CO2 to be removed from the respiring tissues and exhaled by the lungs, causing the pH to return to normal.
