Personal Description:

I am newly qualified 33 year old graduate FY1 Doctor beginning my training having completed my MBChB and BSc at the University of Aberdeen.

I have a particular interest in helping those that are finding mainstream education a challenge and who perhaps, for many reasons, do not attend school regularly.

I came to University following a number of years living in South America. I worked in a private school in Santiago, Chile where I was a teaching assistant and helped in teaching Science and Maths, English (written and conversation) and coached rugby and PE. Before South America I worked in France for a year.
I am a keen sportsman enjoying all sorts of sports and outdoor activities, particularly skiing and am fortunate to be married to a Canadian allowing me regular trips to all sorts of incredible places in British Columbia.
I have a keen interest in the sciences and enjoy reading about all the Physical and Biological sciences. I have a particular interest in Sports and Exercise Physiology but am equally adept at Molecular Physiology and Neuroscience these having formed large parts of my first degree.
I have a very good grasp of Spanish and French having lived in France, Chile and Argentina.
I hope to pursue a career as an orthopaedic surgeon with an interest in medical education.

Tutoring Experience:

I have tutored over 30 students in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire from age 13 to 30, a good number of which through word of mouth. To date I have a 100% pass rate at National 5 and Higher.
Wenlock School, Santiago, Chile (January 2006- August 2007) (Science, Maths, English)
Private English Language tuition, Santiago, Chile (4 Students from age 10 to Age 18)
Tuition of Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Biology to Higher level in Aberdeen

Tutoring Approach:

A student centred approach, I aim to encourage the student to take an interest in the subject they are learning. I like to work through problems and explain them in simple terms before adding detail to ensure a good basic foundation on which knowledge can be built.
Where possible I employ mixed learning methods, not simply replication, and believe that learning should be serious but fun. Something to be looked forward to, not something dreaded.
