Hi my name is Charlotte and I am coming to the end of my second year of medicine at Bristol.
One of the main reasons why I have always wanted to study medicine is that I have always found science interesting yet challenging. I also really enjoy helping people and I feel these two qualities will make me a good tutor.
Before starting the tutorial we would have already discussed what you are particularly struggling with and what you would like to cover in the tutorial. I will then prepare appropiate material for the session. My style will be starting with basic priniciples as I feel understanding these are the key to understanding science and this will enable me to know what level of understanding you are at. My teaching approach will be as visual as possible as this is what I have always found works well. From studying medicine I am used to having to learn a large volume of material and therefore am used to coming up with inventive ways of remembering things like mnemonics. I also feel I have experienced lessons from both good and bad teachers and so I feel I have a good idea of what makes a good lesson.
I would also really like to help aspiring medical students with their applications to medical schools. I remember how difficult the process was and since I have no medical professionals in my family I felt I very much had to navigate the process alone. I really feel that the right preparation is key to acheiving an offer and I would really like to share what I have learned with those who are keen to apply. I feel I could help with general advice about the sort of experience you should aim to have, personal statement advice and tips for the interviews.

A mole is simply a number, an amount of something. Like when people refer to a dozen of eggs they mean 12 eggs, when someone says a mole of atoms they mean 6.022 x 1023 atoms. A mole is simply defined as ‘the amount of a substance containing 6.022 x 1023 particles.’ 6.022 x 1023 is 602,200,000,000,000,000,000,000 when written out in full – it’s a huge number! It is called Avogadro’s number after the man that calculated this. So you can literally have a mole of anything for example a mole of apples mean you have 6.022 x 1023 apples!
The reason why we have the mole is so that chemists can do calculations. If you look at a periodic table, under the symbol for each element there is a number, for example for sodium that number is 22.990. This number is how much 1 mole of sodium weighs in grams so 1 mole of sodium weighs 22.990g. This is called the molar mass: ‘the mass in grams of 1 mole of atoms of a given element.’
So the key this to remember is a mole is just a number: 6.022 x 1023. This is something which you will use in GCSE chemistry and even more if you decide to do A-Level chemistry!see more
