About me

About me: I am a medical student at the University of Durham. I took Chemistry, Biology and Psychology to A2 level and history to As level as well as doing the UKCAT and UCAS twice and doing all the other crazy extracurricular stuff you need to get into university! My experience and motivation... Some of it (a lot of it) didn't come naturally! GCSE's, A levels, UCAS the UKCAT they are all things none of us had ever experienced anything quite like before: until we were stuck right in the middle of them! I had a tutor myself for a while so I know just how valuable having someone explain something in a different way can be. I transferred a lot of the techniques I have picked up from my own tutor into my teaching style, and developed it through tutoring younger students at my school.  The sessions/ my teaching: I will be using past papers and interactive demonstrations through graphs, spider diagrams and pictures of not just facts but how to answer questions!  I am able to help keep you or your child interested and engaged in the topic we are covering by making it something they want to learn more about rather than something they have to memorise. Plus, as I did the exams so recently myself, I still have a whole store of funny mnemonic’s and jokes that can make things stick in anyone’s head! So to finish up... I believe that every single person learns in their own way, on their own time, and with their own motivation and that sometimes it is just about finding the teacher or tutor who runs on the closest wavelength. Sometimes something as simple as using a different word to explain something can make the world of difference, and I am here to be that other perspective. So please do get in touch with your exam board and the topics you are struggling with! I look forward to hearing from you!

Questions Tabitha has answered

What are the Key features of benzene?

1. The electrons/ Pi bonds are delocalised

2. It is made up of six Carbons in a ring with two rings of electon density above and below the plane of the ring.

3. It has a lower electron density than alkenes with a similar structure (aka hexene) and phenol because of the delocalised system.

4. It does not induce a dipole/ polarise many molecules because of it's lower electron density making it relatively inert.
