About me

I am really passionate about the sciences and maths because I believe they offer a more comprehensive understanding of how processes in the world work. I find it fascinating how the different aspects of the subjects intertwine and share common thread. Therefore, I decided for my degree to combine this academic area with my passion for helping people. I am looking to help people, through tutoring to help them reach their full potential and to go into a subject, like me, they are passionate in. Due to my fairly recent graduation from school I have the knowledge of the mark schemes need to succeed as well as having acquired the techniques needed for understanding and remembering the quantity of information needed at both IB and GCSE/iGCSE. I believe that you need to have a healthy work/life balance and so I also am part of my university rugby team. Furthermore, I am more then willing to help potential medical applicants about what seemed to work in my colleagues and my application.

About my sessions

I like to structure my sessions around a particular topic, which then leads into a wider aspect of the subject at the end of one or several sessions. I generally use a combination of questions, explanations and the forming of model answers to help students fully understand a subject area. Providing it is agreeable with the pupil, I like to take my sessions into a little further detail then required due to the fact I believe, if you go beyond the syllabus not only do you have a greater understanding of area, it also makes the core and most important aspect of the subject easier to remember. I give my students an interactive quiz at the end of each session, to make sure all aspects of the topic have been fully understood and so those areas can be addressed if not, however, I try to make the sessions as interesting and enjoyable as possible. I also use these quizzes to assess the progress of my students and ensure their development. I will do everything in my power to ensure that my students meet their goals and will take their concerns about certain areas of the subject into consideration by prioritising these aspects.

Harriet is a fabulous tutor, she has helped our son gain a firm and solid grasp of the basic skills he needs for GCSE maths and really boosted his confidence in the subject. Committed, professional and easy to understand and work with.

From a parental point of view, Harriet is accommodating and quick to respond. My daughter has found the sessions productive and Harriet explains methodically and patiently. Highly recommend.

Questions Harriet has answered

Describe how a nerve impulses crosses a synapse in the nervous system.

A synapse is a junction or space between two neurons or a neuron and a receptor which allows the transmssions of an electrical or chemical signals to another cell. The first neuron is called the presynaptic neuron and the target cell is refered to as the post synaptic neuron. In order for a nerve impulse to continue it must cross the synaptic cleft, the fluid filled space between the neurons plasma membranes.This is done through the use of neurotransmitters. When an action potential reaches the end of the presynaptic neuron, the synaptic knob, depolarisation of the membrane occurs triggaring a cascade, leading to the opening of calcium channels. The influx of calcium causes vesicles containing neurotransmitters to fuse with the presynaptic plasma membrane and release the neurotransmitter into the synaptic cleft via exocytosis. The neurotransmitters diffuse across the synaptic cleft and bind to transmitted-gated ion channel receptors on the postsynaptic membrane. When the neurotransmitter binds these channels are opened allowing an influx of sodium into the ppostsynaptic neuron causing it's membranes depolarisation. this depolarisation allows the poropagation of an action potential down the postsynaptic neuron. The neurotransmitter that remains in the cleft is quickly degraded and the calcium ions from the presynaptic neuron are pumped back into the synaptic cleft. A synapse is a junction or space between two neurons or a neuron and a receptor which allows the transmssions of an electrical or chemical signals to another cell.
