Degree: Human Biosciences (Bachelors) - Exeter University
19 years old and achieved great A Level grades that made my family proud. I am very self-driven and always like to make sure I succeed in any task I am set!
I have a huge passion for anything biology! I love being able to pass my knowledge onto others, and it's constantly growing since studying at University. I am looking to completing a PCGE in teaching after my undergraduate degree and therefore tutoring is a perfect way to gain experience!
Qualified tennis coach and therefore I know how to create good relationships and rapour with clients and tutees. I coach people with ages ranging from 3-16!
I will always meet the needs of the tutee, if this means teaching in a certain way, I am able to adapt my teaching style. I'm a very hands-on tutor where I like to get the student involved to ensure there is full engagement. Explaining terms in non-scientific ways and then building on understanding is a fundamental part of learning. Being able to reliterate what I've said and effectively teach another is a perfect way of demonstrating that the student has understood the content.
Perhaps little quizzes along the way to check understanding?!
I also obtained an A during A-Level for Business Studies and therefore can also offer expertise here.
The modules at University I have covered/covering include: Genetics, Cells, Microbiology, Human Physiology, Biomechanics, Human Anatomy and Bioenergetics. Therefore I believe if you have any questions related to Physical Education or Biology....I am the one you need.

Transcription is the first stage of protein synthesis, it occurs in the NUCLEUS.
The main purpose is to make an mRNA (messenger RNA) copy of a gene - it is like a photocopy.
There are 4 main stages....
Number 1) RNA POLYMERASE ATTACHES TO THE DNA
-Transcription cannot start unless RNA polymerase binds to the beginning of the gene, the hydrogen bonds betweeen the two DNA strands break- unwinding the double helix structure.
-One of the strands from the double stranded DNA helix is used as a TEMPLATE.
2) A COMPLEMENTARY STRAND IS FORMED.
-Complementary base pairing occurs, this means A matches with U (Thymine switches to Uracil in RNA) and C matches with G.
-RNA polymerase lines up free nucleotides by the rule mentioned above.
3) RNA POLYMERASE MVOES DOWN THE STRAND
-it moves down the DNA strand and continues to add more free nucleotides until the strand has been created.
-the hydrogen bonds between the uncoiled structure reform and the double helix structure is recreated.
4) mRNA LEAVES THE NUCLEUS
-When RNA polymerase reaches a STOP codon, it stops transcription of the gene.
The RNA polymerase then detaches from the DNA.
-the mRNA moves out of the nucleus via a nuclear pore and attaches to a RIBOSOME in the cytoplasm....this is where TRANSLATION occurs!see more
