Currently I am a fourth year medical student at UCL and prior to this I studied at Dr Challoner's Grammar School for secondary school.I am a highly motivated individual that enjoys the endeavour of teaching as it allows the development of a tutee both in terms of confidence and academic ability to reach excellence. Contributing to this progression forms the foundation of my desire to teach as it is perpetually rewarding and challenging to supplement a students learning. The subjects that I specialise in are UKCAT and BMAT.

Classroom Assistant, AE Tuition, Slough 2011-2012
Working as a a part-time Classroom Assistant helping with 11+ tuition which required a confident, responsible and mature approach that was crucial in managing parent expectations and benefiting the students.
Chemistry Classroom Helper, DCGS 2011-12
During my free periods I was able to provide teaching support to students in a GCSE chemistry class. This was challenging and rewarding in equal parts as it required me to adapt my approach to suit the needs of the individual especially when helping them grasp an understanding of new subjects.
Maths Link Mentor, DCGS 2012-13
For the academic year of 2012-13 I participated in my schools maths link scheme which paired a sixth former studying A level maths with a student in need of extra support in maths lower down the school. This required me to spend my lunchtimes with my linked student and was I found this to be a worthwhile endeavour as the student developed greatly over the year due to their own hard work and newfound confidence. This represents the essence of why I enjoy teaching as I was able to contribute to this progression; giving my work value.
A variety of experiences have led me to become a tutor such as volunteering my time to provide one to one support in school. These have all ultimately provided me with exposure to see how incredibly productive the field of individual interaction and tuition may be; as I have been able to contribute to the development of students who felt lost in their studies into students who exude the confidence to tackle and question their subjects .
To supplement this, a large factor in my desire to tutor lies in the fact that I find working with young people immensely rewarding as they offer great enthusiasm when they have the chance to feel enabled. My view of this is formed from my time as part of the award winning Voice Youth Project which has provided me with an alternative exposure to working with young people.
