About me

I have tutored for 5 years - through my degree and now as a qualified Biochemist with a First class degree, and so I have 500+ hours of experience to work with. I work specifically on two things. 1. Exam technique - as important, if not more important than the actual content itself. I spend 50% of each lesson on exam technique and mark schemes. 2. I believe getting students to understand concepts from their roots rather than having to memorise large chunks of information, yielding much better results as it protects against blanking during exams, and develops application of knowledge to unknown situations. I have brought C students to A*s in GCSEs and A levels (and can provide references for this), and can do the same with you.

About my sessions

50% of my lesson is spent understanding content from root concepts, and teaching tips and tricks to help absorb the content more productively. I believe getting students to understand concepts from their roots rather than having to memorise large chunks of information, yielding much better results as it protects against blanking during exams. The other 50% is spent on exam questions from the specific exam board on the topic of the lesson, going through model answers, key phrases that come up in every question - especially questions on application of knowledge to unknown situations, and those regarding experimental technique (sciences). Some typical examples of these are answering questions on reliability of experiments, accuracy of results, the need for controls etc. This allows us - tutor and student - to come up with model answers as well as applying our knowledge to new situations.

Maleeha is very helpful and friendly and always makes harder topics easier to learn by breaking them down into understandable sections!

Maleeha did a very good recap of Quadratics.

Questions Maleeha has answered

How does the heart initiate and control its own heartbeat?

So the heart originates its own heartbeat by itself - this is called myogenic muscle - and doesnt need any nerve impulse to stimulate it, so is different to all the other organs in the body. The sino-atrial node (SAN) above the atria originates this impulse and sends it downwards to the atrio-ventricular node (AVN). This downwards moving signal allows the atria to contract downwards i.e. atrial systole. Then the AVN's function is to collect the signal and pass it to the Purkyne fibres/Bundle of His (differently named according to A level exam board being studied). Its other function is to delay the signal slightly to allow the atria to finish contracting before the ventricles do, as this would confuse blood flow. The function of the Purkyne fibres/Bundle of His is to transport the impulse to the apex of the heart (i.e. the bottom corners) and convey it upwards. This upwards moving signal allows the ventricles to contract upwards i.e. ventricular systole. This is useful so that the ventricles force blood up into the pulmonary artery and aorta and out of the heart. Underlined - the 3 key players in originating and controlling heart beat Bold - key phrases identified in mark schemes So the heart originates its own heartbeat by itself - this is called myogenic muscle - and doesnt need any nerve impulse to stimulate it, so is different to all the other organs in the body.
