I am a first year postgraduate medical student. Previously I completed my bachelors in biochemistry. I have never taken education and results for granted, I fully understand just how hard it is and how much harder it is becoming almost daily to meet the standards necessary to succeed. At all stages in my life I had one form of tutoring or another. I know what it is likely to sit on the other side of the table and reap the benefits, and ultimately the rewards of having a tutor.
I have had the privilege of tutoring different ages all the way from 11+ to first year biochemistry level. During my second year of biochemistry I got to be a one on one mentor for first year students. This was both fun and challenging as most students wanted to know details to varying depths. More often than not second year level or even further, which required me to thoroughly prepare for every session.
The youngest age group of 11+ exams reminded just how high the standards are from such a young age.
I prefer a tutee led approach. The tutee is the expert of themselves, they know what works best for them. My role is to facilitate that process and aid their learning not to change it. I do often share my approach to learning and studying just so they get an idea of how others do it, they may even go onto to try it. Ultimately the tutee will be guiding the process.
