About me

I am a second year medical student studying at St George's University of London! I took Chemistry, Biology and Product Design at A level, achieved A*AB and I am consequently very passionate about my subjects. Medicine is my chosen field of study due to my love of everything science and my desire to help others; these characteristics have also lead me to enthusiastically pursue tutoring. The sciences can be tricky to understand and my aim is to explain complicated theories and subject matters in a way that makes sense for each individual - there isn't much point in teaching two completley different people in the same manner! My approach is centred around every student as an individual learner.

About my sessions

Each lesson will be different for each student, for reasons I mentioned in my personal statement. However, my basic outline of a lesson is as follows:

To begin with a starter exercise to see what gaps there are in a student's knowledge, in order to accurately fill them and make sure they get the most out of the session. I will then talk the student through the areas of that specific subject or topic that they are finding difficult in a step by step approach. Once the subject matter has been covered and the student is happy, it is alway beneficial to practise some exam style questions! I like to teach by showing a student how a question is done, then allowing them to do one alone, and then having them walk me through a question, as if they were teaching me. I found this method very effective both in tutoring and as a student myself! 

With UKCAT mentoring, I cannot mentor the situational judgement section as I have been part of a focus group for these questions. I am still happy to help wth the rest of the paper.

Our son achieved a dismal E in his chemistry mock exam, he found the subject extremely difficult,lost confidence and interest. We found Madeline on my tutor and she has been truly magnificent. Imagine our delight when he picked up his GCSE grades and achieved an A grade! Madeline breaks subject matter down into easy understandable chunks, she build up the individuals confidence, reignites the interest and challenges and stretches their learning and ability. We would highly recommend Maddy.

Questions Madeline has answered

What are the main differences between eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells?

Eukaryotic cells have a cell membrane, membrane bound organelles and a nucleus containing DNA. They also have larger (80S) ribosomes. Prokaryotic cells have a cell wall and a cell membrane, circular DNA (plasmids) and non-membrane bound organelles. They also have flagellae and has smaller (70S) ribosomes. Prokaryotes tend to be bacterium. I would want to draw diagrams to help explain the differences but I wasn't able to draw in this box.Eukaryotic cells have a cell membrane, membrane bound organelles and a nucleus containing DNA.

What is a covalent bond?

A covalent bond occurs between two non metals. It involves two atoms sharing electrons. The electrostatic attraction is between the positive nuclei and the negative charge on the shared pair of electrons. Atoms that are covalently bonded are called molecules (usually called simple molecular structures). Covalent bonds do not conduct electricity in any state because they do not contain mobile charged particles, they have low melting and boiling points because of the weak intermolecular forces that hold covalent molecules together.A covalent bond occurs between two non metals.

What is an ionic bond?

An ionic bond occurs between a metal and a non-metal. It is the electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged ions, where electrons are transferred to make ions. Ions that are ionically bonded are held in a giant ionic lattice. This is very strong and takes a lot of energy to overcome, therefore melting and boiling points are high. Ionic compounds only conduct electricity when molten or dissolved in water, as only in this way do they have mobile charged particles that can carry a current.An ionic bond occurs between a metal and a non-metal.
