Personal Description:

Professional biology, mathematics, UKCAT and medical admissions tutor with 11+ years tutoring experience.

I have a first class BSc (Hons) from the University of Edinburgh in Developmental and Cell Biology, and I have worked teaching science and tutoring individuals since I was an undergraduate student. I have experience tutoring individuals aged 14 to 30 of all levels and abilities in both group and 1-to-1 settings, and I cover material ranging from National 3-5/GCSE level up to undergraduate senior honours. I am fully up-to-date on the SQA Curriculum for Excellence (CfE), and have experience tutoring CfE biology, human biology and mathematics at all levels, and chemistry and physics to National 5/GCSE.

In addition to these traditional tutoring services, I also run UKCAT tutoring over the summer months through MAT Scotland (June - September) for prospective UK medical and dental students. I know first-hand the unique and daunting challenge these entrance exams pose to prospective medical and dental students of all ages and abilities. As a tutor, my aims are simple: to provide ongoing support through the medical school application process from start to finish to give you the best possible chance at gaining an offer, without breaking the bank. As of May 2018 I have tutored 72 students through the UKCAT and medical or dental admissions process, with the following results:

• Average increase in combined UKCAT score from tutees after beginning tutoring with me = +200
• 96% of my tutees have gained at least 1 interview for medical/dental school (with minimum academic requirements)
• 86% of my tutees were successful in gaining at least 1 medical/dental school offer

I also offer ongoing support for prospective medical and dental students throughout the application process if desired, including advice on entry, interview preparation and personal statement guidance and support at no extra cost.

Tutoring Experience:

10 years' experience working as a mathematics, biology and human biology tutor for the SQA curriculum from National 5s to Advanced Highers
4 years' experience working as a UKCAT tutor. Most recent UKCAT score = 815 (sat in July 2016)
4 years' experience working as a Science Communicator for the Edinburgh International Science Festival
3 years' experience working as a University Academic Support Worker at the University of Edinburgh
2 summer's spent working as a Science Teacher at summer camps in the USA

I have a number of additional references and email addresses of past tutee's that are available on request, and an up-to-date Enhanced Disclosure Scotland as required for both my work as a tutor and my studies in medical school.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that the key to a successful tutoring relationship is mutual respect and trust - trust in the tutor that they are both knowledgeable about the subject and confident in their ability to educate, and trust in the tutee that they work diligently and to the best of their ability. I see the role of a tutor as not just that of an educator, but also as a facilitator of self-directed learning, ensuring that material is covered thoroughly, methodically and repeatedly over the course of the year. By tailoring my sessions to individual learning styles and remaining flexible, I hope to constantly challenge and push my tutee's throughout our time together so that come crunch time they feel calm, confident and prepared for the UKCAT and medical school interview.
