About me

Hi, I'm James, and I'm a Medical Science graduate from the University of Exeter, now studying a Research based Masters degree (MRes) in Bioscience at the University of Bath. 

Why chose me? 

My aim for the future is to go into lecturing. My own experience of lectures from my degree has made clear the fact that the lectures that take complex topics and break it down and explain it in really easy terms are the best. As such I am constantly striving to find ways to explain scientific topics in the simplest ways possible. 

For GCSE's and A-levels, I'm also big on exam technique. When sitting my A-levels, the guidance simply wasn't there, and many of my fellow pupils and I had all the knowledge, but very little idea how to turn that into exam marks. I have since learnt a lot of helpful ideas which I am happy to pass on during my lessons. 

Lesson structure 

Before a lesson I will always ask students what topics they would like to cover.I would then start by making sure you are familiar with all the basics of a topic, and work through a few examples to test this. I finish with a quick summary of the key points of the lesson, then send my revision notes on the topic after the lesson, to help you with your studying. Once we have covered a topic in a lesson, I am happy to answer any questions later on relating to that topic. 

Exam boards

Pretty much every exam board for GCSE and A-level are in the process of launching their new syllabi. I have checked the specifications for all of them and am in the process of making notes for all of them, so I should be able to help with all your science/maths needs!

Availability:

I will be available most weeknights, and will be very flexible on weekends, so if reading the above has interested you, feel free to request to meet me for a 15 minute conversation-I'd love to hear from you!

I am also happy to do Written Sessions for you should you need any help with coursework assignments or homework.

Explain why ethanoic acid and hydrochloric acid of the same concentrations would give different pH readings

An acid is defined as a proton donor-the hydrogen ion (H+) dissociates from the acid in a solution. Hydrocholoric acid is a strong acid-all of the acid molecules will release their protons into a solution, making it very acidic. Ethanoic acid, on the other hand, is a weak acid-it will only don...

An acid is defined as a proton donor-the hydrogen ion (H+) dissociates from the acid in a solution. Hydrocholoric acid is a strong acid-all of the acid molecules will release their protons into a solution, making it very acidic. Ethanoic acid, on the other hand, is a weak acid-it will only donate some of its hydrogen ions into a solution, making it less acidic than hydrochloric acid solution.
