About me

Hey there! My name's Jada and I'm a first year student of Medicine at King's College London. I'm an enthusiast of the vast and diverse world of human physiology, and am passionate about understanding how the body works and what can go wrong with it. This is one of the major elements that underpins my degree, and studying this requires an in depth understanding of the biological and chemical concepts covered at A-Level and GCSE. I strongly believe that learning can be fun, and that students ought to be inspired and engaged in every lesson.

Having gone through the UCAS process not too long ago myself, I understand how stressful it can be for students working towards the grades needed for university. For me, I found that good preparation and simulating the exam experience as often as possible helped boost my confidence, and avoided panicking on the day. I aim to guide students through that preparation and to answer any questions they may have. With the right guidance, I believe all students will be able to understand even the most complex areas of GCSE/A-Level science and achieve the highest grades they can.

Outside the world of academia, I'm involved in a number of societies including Netball, Effective Altruism and writing life science articles for Nucleus Magazine. I also play the piano and guitar, and am an avid reader of fantasy fiction. I've also had tutoring experience teaching less-abled children how to read.

About my sessions

The main goal of my tutorials is to boost students' confidence by increasing their scientific knowledge and familiarity with the exam style. I will go through topics requested in an interesting and engaging way, and will explain any questions they don't understand. I'll also provide the tips and techniques I personally found useful in exams, and will work collaboratively with each student to identify personal areas of weakness. It is important to me that students feel free to question anything they're not too sure about, so that they can develop a full and in depth understanding of the course material.

Excellent tutor. I find it easier to approach questions after just one lesson!

Great first lesson experience for our 15 year old daughter working with Jada on chemistry. Jada’s approach of reviewing topics and going over exam questions was extremely useful - Jada was quickly able to spot knowledge gaps and address them. After the lesson, Jada sent us a great recap mail with her observations. Overall it was enjoyable, efficient and fruitful so we’ll definitely be back for more.

Jada was very professional and organised for every lesson. Jada made sure she first found the gaps in my son’s knowledge of chemistry and then she explained the materials to my son and made sure he understood it. Jada also went through past papers with him too and explained to him what the questions are asking for exactly and how to answer it so he would get the maximum marks. We just got the results (August 2018) and my son ended up getting 8 in his Chemistry GCSE which is the equivalent to an A*! So if you are looking for an excellent chemistry tutor, choose Jada.

Questions Jada has answered

How does the Krebs Cycle work?

The Krebs Cycle is important for producing reduced coenzymes - like NADH and FADH - which can be used later to produce ATP. It starts off with a 4-carbon compound called oxoaloacetate and a 2-carbon molecule called Acetyl Coenzyme A. Acetyl Coenzyme A donates its 2 carbons to oxoaloacetate to form a 6-carbon compound called Citrate or Citric Acid. The citric Acid is decarboxylated into a 5-carbon compound, releasing a CO2. Dehydrogenation occurs simultaneously, releasing a hydrogen molecule that is used to make reduced NAD. The 5-carbon compound is then decarboxylated into the original 4-carbon compound oxoaloacetate which can be used again in the cycle. Again, dehydrogenation occurs alongside this reaction to make two reduced NADs and one reduced FAD which can both be used later on in respiration to produce ATP. This cycle occurs twice for every glucose molecule metabolised.The Krebs Cycle is important for producing reduced coenzymes - like NADH and FADH - which can be used later to produce ATP.

What's the difference between T Cells and B Cells?

Both T Cells and B Cells are types of lymphocytes found in the blood. T Cells are involved in cell-mediated immunity. This means the cells themselves act to remove pathogens from the body by killing them directly (called T Killer Cells), or by activating B lymphocytes (called T helper cells). T cells are activated when receptors on their surface bind to pathogen antigens with a complementary shape. There are also regulatory T Cells that prevent immune cells from attacking the body after the pathogen has been removed. B lymphocytes are involved in humoral immunity. This means that they secrete chemicals called antibodies into the blood, and these help to remove or kill the invading pathogens. Each B Cell is covered in these antibodies, and are activated when the antibody binds to an antigen with a complementary shape. When this happens, an antigen-antibody complex forms and triggers the B cell to divide several times, into cells called plasma cells. These are responsible for secreting large quantities into the blood.Both T Cells and B Cells are types of lymphocytes found in the blood. T Cells are involved in cell-mediated immunity.
