About me

Hello, thank you for viewing my profile!

I'm currently a masters student at the University of Liverpool, studying chemistry. I love what I do and would really like to help teach others so that they can also achieve their goals. I can tutor any science GCSE as well as Chemistry at A Level. I can also tutor Biology A Level, depending on the syllabus. If you'd like to book a meet the tutor session and learn more about me and how I can help, just drop me a message.

About my sessions

I think the most important thing to learning is engagement, which is why I'll be happy to provide you with plenty of questions throughout tutorials so that we can both measure your progress. I think past papers are also crucial and am happy to go through these with you, and will often pull some out for sessions so that we can practice the parts of the paper which are relevent to the topic I'm tutoring.

Questions Leanne has answered

How does the body protect itself from pathogens?

The body has many ways in which it can protect against pathogens (which are microorganisms which cause disease, such as harmful bacteria or viruses). 

White blood cells are key in protecting against pathogens. They ingest the harmful microorganisms (they surround them and take them up - a bit like eating them, but you must use the word ingest).

Pathogens can produce harmful chemicals called toxins, and white blood cells produce antitoxins to destroy these.

Certain white blood cells called lymphocytes are responsible for producing the antibodies which destroy specific pathogens by detecting antigens (foreign chemicals released by the pathogen). Antibodies can bind to pathogens and damage/destroy them, or clump them together for easy ingestion by another type of white blood cell, the phagocyte.

What is the difference between ionic, covalent and metallic bonding?

Ionic bonding occurs when transfer of electrons takes place. One atom (or molecule) donates one or more electrons to another. Since electrons have a negative charge, this leaves the donating atom electron deficient (+ve charged ion) and the other atom electron rich ( -ve charged ion). The ions then attract each other through electrostatic forces of attraction as they are oppositely charged

Covalent bonding occurs when atoms/molecules share pairs of electrons.

Metallic bonding is bonding that occurs in metals. This leads to giant structures of metal atoms arranged in a regular pattern. The outer shell electrons of metals are delocalised (free to move around) and so a metallic structure is a regular arrangment of +ve charged ions with negative electrons in between, held together by electrostatic forces of interaction.
