About me

I am currently a second year undergraduate at King's College, Cambridge, where I study medicine. I'm an easy going and friendly person.
 
I really enjoy studying and teaching science and by the end of our tutorials I hope that you will too! I have benefited a lot from the Cambridge supervision system and from my excellent school teachers and I will use their methods when teaching you.
 
Science and maths are both conceptually beautiful fields to study and I hope to make studying them as enjoyable as possible. I can work through particularly difficult topics with students at their own pace and I hope to leave my students with a good grasp of the concepts that underpin their subject. When exam term arrives we will work through past papers and mark schemes together in order to crack the critical exam technique that will raise your grade.
 
For prospective medical students and oxbridge candidates I can aid you in the interview process and the application process as a whole helping you to realise what they're looking for. In addition for medical students, we will craft your personal statement, talk about the extra knowledge you need to apply to medical school, and your extra-curricular activities and shadowings that will lift you out of the crowd.
 
If you want to ask more questions or get to know me more, then please don't hesitate to send me a 'webmail' or request a free meet the tutor session.

Questions Aidan has answered

What is endosymbiosis and how does it relate to mitochondria?

Endosymbiosis is where two organisms live together, one inside the other: endo=in, sym=together and biosis=living.

It is believed that mitochondria originated as eubacteria that were intracellular parasites of the early anaerobic eukaryotes. Evidence for this is primarily found in the mitochondrial genome. It has been sequenced and compared to many other species of bacteria and similar organisms have been found. Other data that support this is the presence of a double membrane around mitochondria, as if the original eubacteria were endocytosed. In addition mitochondria have their own ribosomes to make proteins encoded by their genomes.

The 'pro-mitochondria' received glucose from the anaerobic eukaryotes and the anaerobic eukaryotes received a much greater amount of ATP (the main energy 'currency' of life) courtesy of the mitochondrial aerobic respiratory chain.

Though once a free living organism, it is wrong to think of the mitochondria now as 'other' or as an independent entity. Evolution has robbed it of most of its genome; the human mitochondrial genome has just 13 proteins encoded in it and as a result many of the proteins and in some cases small RNA molecules must be transported into the mitochondrion after being transcribed from the nucleus and translated by the rER.

Interestingly when the sperm and egg fuse in fertilisation, it is primarily the maternal mitochondria that are encorporated into the zygote and as a result mitochondrial diseases are inherited maternally, for example MERRF syndrome. Intuitively the tissues worst affected are those with high oxidative demands.
