Personal Description:

I am an undergraduate medical student in my final year at Imperial College London. I love teaching and alongside the academic subjects, I would also be happy to assist with personal statements, interview practice and the BMAT and UKCAT exams (having needed to complete all of these myself to get into medical school). Last year I achieved a distinction in psychiatry at medical school (which may prove useful for anybody looking for psychology tutoring). I have also completed an intercalated BSc in Neuroscience and Mental Health with a specialist module in Death, Autopsy and the Law (not quite as morbid as it sounds!), and achieved a strong 2.1. I am hard-working, enthusiastic and reliable and I would do my absolute best to ensure all of my students are achieving to the best of their ability.

Tutoring Experience:

Generally, I love to teach. Last year I tutored 3 A level students and 2 GCSE students and previously I have been tutored 5 third year medical students for their end of year exams and received positive feedback. I have also taught my two younger sisters throughout their school life. I am incredibly organised and easy to rely on, as shown through my roles on committees at university. Previously, I have been chair of Imperial College Aid to the Balkans (where we send volunteers to Bulgarian orphanages each summer), treasurer for both the Imperial College School of Medicine Summer Ball and Shrove Tuesday Final Year Dinner, and I have been an academic representative for my course (requiring me to liaise with the faculty and ensure the student voice is heard). Through representing my course to the faculty I have gained an insight of what students generally like and dislike when being taught and additionally, through volunteering in Bulgarian orphanages over the summer I have improved my communication skills further.

Tutoring Approach:

I would aim to adjust my tutoring style to meet the needs of the student but generally, I like to encourage students to have an interest in their subject as I believe it is easier to learn something you are interested in than something you are not. I would encourage students to ask lots of questions as I feel that this promotes an enthusiasm for the subject whilst allowing me to address any queries that they may have.
