About me

Hi, I'm James, and I'm a Masters graduate in Biosciences from the University of Bath, also with a Medical Sciences degree from the University of Exeter. I'm incredibly passionate and interested in all of the sciences-Biology, Chemistry and Physics-as well as maths. This was much to the annoyance of friends and family who hate how much I talk about it-as a result, I thought....why not channel this energy into helping people understand science? That's why i'm here-to make all your science and maths troubles easier to understand and remember, and to try and help that translate into exam success.

I'm now also available for personal statement help, mainly for STEM applicants but I am happy to help anyone. Having successfully applied for two degrees, and having helped numerous people before in university applications, i'd be happy to look over personal statements to help improve your application.

About my sessions

There's two things I want to accomplish in each lesson:

1) Helping you understand topic(s) you are struggling with

2) Helping you understand how to convert that understanding into full marks in exam questions on that topic.

To that end, my lessons will normally run with the following structure:

-Going through the key points you will need to know for those topics, including theory, equations, whatever else. This will usually be explained with the assistance of graphs, diagrams and pictures because....well, they make it easier to understand!

-Spending the last 15-20 mins consolidating this knowledge, with exam questions from past papers.

Questions James has answered

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 donate some of its hydrogen ions into a solution, making it less acidic than hydrochloric acid solution.
