Are you thinking of applying to Oxbridge for Life Sciences (Natural Sciences, Biology, Biomedicine)? With acceptance rates averaging around 15%, you want to give yourself the best chance to get that offer! And this is where I come in. I hold a 1st from Oxford in Biological Sciences and have volunteered as an Admissions mentor for over three years, coaching students through the application process. We will work together to adapt the course to your needs, working flexibly to focus on the areas where you want extra support. How can I help? - Personal Statement Support: Writing a personal statement doesn’t have to be painful. We will create an initial outline using your experiences and interests, producing a clear message and story throughout. Then, I will provide editing support, helping you to cut words down for the strict character limits. - Course and College Selection: Overwhelmed by the choice of courses/colleges? I can provide personal, insider knowledge into each college, helping you to make the right decision for you. - Tutorial Prep: Using my knowledge of the tutorial system, I design personalised tutorials based on your interests, fostering your love of science and building your confidence. Self-belief is an underrated skill, and together we will work to develop your confidence to speak up, even if you think you are wrong. - Interview Prep: The infamous Oxbridge interviews will not be as scary as they seem after our sessions. Using the self-belief and scientific analysis skills developed in our tutorial sessions, you will feel well-equipped to deal with an interview scenario. Initially, we will go through my bank of interview questions, discussing your approach and response to questions. As time goes on, we will start to practice mock interviews, 30-45 minutes of questions with feedback given afterwards. - Admissions Test Prep: Many courses demand rigorous admissions tests, which require sound subject knowledge and lateral thinking. We will work on these together, helping you to become accustomed to the style of the questions. I look forward to hearing from you!

Homeostasis is one of the topics one should be expecting in examinations like IGCSE, GCSE, WASSCE, GCE, NECO, SAT. Osmoregulation (homeostasis)-in unicellular organism is ensured by the use of contractile vacuole. The main organs involved in homeostasis in multicellular organisms include kidney, liver, skin, ductless glands (hormones) and the brain which has the overall control of the homeostatic process in the body. The regulation of homeostasis depends on three mechanisms: 1. Receptor 2. Control Centre 3. Effector. The entire process continuously works to maintain homeostasis regulation. 1. Receptor: the receptor is the sensing component responsible for monitoring and responding to changes in the external or internal environment. 2. Control Centre: The control centre is also known as the integration centre. It receives and processes information from the receptor. 3. Effector: The effector responds to the commands of the control centre. It could either oppose or enhance the stimulus. Biological systems like those of your body are constantly being pushed away from their balance points. For instance, when you exercise, your muscles increase heat production, nudging your body temperature upward. Similarly, when you drink a glass of fruit juice, your blood glucose goes up. Homeostasis depends on the ability of your body to detect and oppose these changes. Roles of Pancreas and Liver in Homeostasis. During a meal, the pancreas will secrete insulin and suppress glucagon, causing the liver to store glucose as glycogen. Alternatively, when blood sugars are low, the liver can convert glycogen into glucose through a process known as glycogenolysis. The pancreas controls the concentration of glucose in the body by producing the hormones insulin and glucagon which stimulate the liver. Insulin and glucagon are chemical hormones messengers.

Tuition in Math and Science (Physics, Chemistry and Math), Mathematical Part( GRE and SAT) (Luxembourg)
Narayan is a really good teacher. I urgently needed someone to teach me physics for two different medical school entrance exams. He was able to do it very fast and well. Every lesson started with him explaining a specific concept, and then he gave me practice questions to ensure that I was confident in solving them. Additionally, after every lesson, he shared his notes with me to study from them later on. I truly feel confident and prepared for my exams. Thank you so much!!

Math, Biology and Chemistry lessons for primary, secondary and high school students (Warsaw)
Simply amazing, more than teaching my son and Fatih were able to bond and have conversations helping the teaching. Progress has been spectacular and my son was able to develop an high level of confidence in going to the exams that is already more than half way helpful. Strongly recommend!!
