Degree: Biology and Psychology (Bachelors) - Newcastle University
I have prior experience mentoring children of up to GCSE level, as I regularly helped at a student run “Biology Clinic” whilst I was in sixth form. This involved helping pupils aged 11-16 with biology related questions they had, in addition to going through tests on a one to one basis. I also have experience working with younger children, as I have volunteered in various primary schools over a number of years. At GCSE level I achieved 2 A* and 8 A grades (with the A*s being in Biology and Chemistry). At A-level I was awarded 3 A grades in Biology, Psychology and Russian. Both Biology (GCSE and A-level) and Psychology were taken with the AQA exam board. I am generally available during evenings and weekends, with some slots being available in the daytime. In tutoring sessions I would aim to help pupils get answers to questions that they may have from their lessons in school, as well as work on their exam technique so that they can perform to the best of their ability in exams. I would describe myself as friendly, hardworking and patient; qualities I believe make me the ideal candidate for being a tutor. I will make pupils feel relaxed yet simultaneously push them to achieve excellence, using carefully planned lessons to make the most out of the time available. I am aware of many methods of teaching, and will utilise all of these if necessary, to ensure that the pupil leaves a session knowing that they have enough of the right information to achieve a high grade in an exam, but more importantly an understanding of the subject.

You can think of these 4 things as a hierarchy, where each 'element' is a building block for the next level.
The smallest 'unit' are cells. There are trillions of cells in your body and these cells together make up what we call tissues. These tissues make up organs (so for example the heart is made up of many tissues). These organs then work together forming organ systems (such as the digestive system, which is made from organs such as the stomach, intestines and rectum) to perform a particular function.
So as demonstrated below, it is not possible to move up the hierarchy without the 'stage' before being there. So if there are no cells, no tissues, organs or any organ systems can form.
