Personal Description:

My name is Dr Dev and I am a medical doctor working at St George's Hospital. As a keen academic I have been awarded numerous degrees: medical degree (MBBS), Masters of Science (MSc), Member of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP), PGCert in Healthcare and Biomedical Education (PGCert HBE), and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA). Each of these degrees has helped me develop as a tutor.

During medical school I ranked in the top 10% of the graduating cohort in my final year receiving honours in all specialties which I was examined on. As a post-graduate I have completed a formal teaching degree, and have passed the Membership of the Royal College of Physician part one and two examinations with high grades. I have also completed MRCP PACES, a post-graduate OSCE, with high grades.

Tutoring Experience:

I have considerable teaching experience. I have conducted a medical teaching course in the past which was rated 4.86/5 stars. I received 4.94/5 stars based on the statement "I would recommend Dr Dev`s teaching programme to other students", 4.95/5 stars based on the statement "Dr Dev was a knowledgeable teacher", and 4.97/5 stars based on the statement "Dr Dev was an effective communicator". Since then I have conducted local, national and international teaching programmes which have been equally successful.

I have also tutored many students in the past, all of which have found my teaching thoroughly useful. I have taught all years from first year medical students to final years (and everything in between)! This includes numerous medical students from numerous different medical schools (St George`s, Kings, Imperial, UCL, Bart`s, Birmingham, Brighton, Southampton) and I aim to teach on your specific curriculum. I am also experienced in teaching nursing students, and those in biomedical sciences.

I have been given numerous teaching awards in my career. Most notably the Kingston Hospital Foundation NHS Trust awarded me the "Outstanding contribution to teaching" award, and St George`s Hospital awarded me an "Excellence as a Peer Tutor and Mentor" at their annual Excellence in Education event. I have also recently gained a formal teaching certification, and hold a formal teaching post alongside my clinical job with a London university. This serves as a testament that I love teaching!

For anyone trying to get into medicine I can help with this. I have worked at over 20 interview days and I have also interviewed on the panel for entry into medical school. In July 2015 I also ran an "Entry to Medicine" summer school programme which was associated with a highly commended London medical school. I understand what it takes to get into medical school both via the UCAS personal statement as well as excelling in the interview. I am fully aware of the criteria for which candidates are examined upon in interviews. I am willing to offer a personal "Entry to Medicine" course for anyone wishing to gain entry into a UK medical school. For the 2015 intake I tutored multiple students who were all given an offer for entry to at least one medical school.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a keen interest in teaching and plan on devoting much of my future career as a doctor to teaching. I am a friendly and patient person who teaches through positive reinforcement. I will never make my tutees feel put down and I will strive for my tutee's success. Those who use my services should expect high quality teaching and nothing less. I will teach you in a way that will help you achieve A-grades through understanding, therefore avoiding endless memorisation! ('No one has ever taught it like that before, that makes it so much easier' is a regular comment I get from my students!)
