A Level: A* A B in Biology, Maths and Chemistry
BSc: Neuroscience and Mental Health (2:1)

Tutoring Experience

I have 2 years of weekly teaching experience thanks to my role as an Army Cadet Force Volunteer. As adult volunteers we're responsible for taking the cadets through a wide syllabus of subjects at different levels as they progress through their cadet career (12-18yrs). In order to deliver this training we are required to undergo professional training and assessment of our own instructional technique. I teach 4 lessons a week on average and each of these require a formal lesson plan. The structure of cadet evenings roughly follows the school academic year so I am used to reviewing a cadets progress to ensure they're meeting their targets and assessing ways I can change my teaching practice in order to cater to individual cadet needs. I also have an awareness of how to structure a teaching programme so that highlighted learning objectives can be achieved within a required time frame.

My role as an employed peer mentor gave me experience in teaching and coaching peers with disabilities through tasks in the workplace.

As a medical student I'm regularly given the opportunity to present to classmates on specific topics, we're also required to provide evidence of having taught younger members of the medical school.
