About me

My name is Kate and I am a third year medical student. I have previously gained a BSc in Human Biology, so I have a great interest in biological science. My process into medical school involved me taking many different styles of admission tests including the UKCAT and GAMSAT so I have a good knowledge of what is required to score well on these types of tests. I am also very happy to give advice on any other aspect of preparation for medical school.

I have lots of experience teaching at many different levels including KS2, KS3, GCSE and A-level. I have taught a variety of subjects at these levels, including Maths, Biology and Chemistry. I greatly enjoy tutoring, and particularly the opportunity to shape my teaching style to the needs of my student. I have been very fortunate to help many students to achieve their potential and gain confidence in areas they were struggling with.

About my sessions

There is no one structure that will suit all students so I prefer to meet my student first and get a better idea of what works for them. This may take a week or two as I get to know the student and their learning style. The key that I have found to successful tutoring is to be as approachable as possible with the student. This allows the student to feel uninhibited about questions they may want to ask.

Patience is another key factor in successful tuition and is something I have recieved praise for in the past. This allows for as much time as is needed for a student to grasp a particular concept and I believe that it is the role of the teacher to find a way to explain a concept, even if this may take longer than expected.

Questions Kate has answered

Explain the differences between eukaryotic and prokaryotic organisms

There are four main differences; 1. DNA - Eukaryotes have linear DNA whereas prokaryotes have circular DNA. The DNA in eukaryotes is also protien bound, this is not the case in prokaryotes. 2. Organelles - Eukaryotes have membrane bound organelles including a nuclues, prokaryotes do not have a nucleus or any other membrane bound organelles. 3. Reproduction - Eukaryotes use meiosis or mitosis to reproduce, prokaryotes use binary fission 4. Size - Generally eukaryotes are bigger in size than prokaryotic organisms.  There are four main differences; 1. DNA - Eukaryotes have linear DNA whereas prokaryotes have circular DNA.
