I am a medical school student at the University of Leeds. I have always been fascinated by the human body so have a real passion for science, but also for maths. Hopefully, in my tutorials, my love for the subjects will be instilled in you, too.
I started my own local, private tutoring business when I was 16 years old. The business grew and my secondary school then employed me to run revision sessions and saturday school classes. This has given me lots of experience tutoring not only GCSE, but also children as young as 7.
It is important that what we cover in our sessions will be guided by you in order to sufficiently focus on troublesome areas.
Exam question practice is vital, but understanding is key; therefore you will have to be able to explain a concept back to me in your own way before attempting these. There are always lots of different ways to explain things if you are struggling to understand.
I am a fun, patient and friendly person who believes in finding the right balance between hard work and fun - hopefully that will come across in our sessions!
If you have any questions, send me a WebMail or book a Meet the Tutor Session; both are accessible through this website.
Please make sure you include what exam board and level you are studying for as well as some key areas you are struggling with.
I look forward to meeting you!

Vaso-dilation: blood vessels near to the skin's surface dilate which allows more heat to be lost. This is because more blood can flow through as there is more room in the lumen.
Sweating: the hotter we are, the more our body sweats. Sweat glands release more sweat because heat energy is used to evaporate the sweat, so it eventually cools us down by using more heat energy.see more
One hydrogen (-H) from the alcohol group (-OH) on the alcohol breaks off and joins with the alcohol (-OH) group that breaks off of the carboxylic acid (-COOH).
So the -H from alcohol joins the -OH from carboxylic acid to form H2O.
