Personal Description:

I am a 5th year medical student based in Kentish Town, originally from Lincolnshire, currently studying clinical medicine at University College London (UCL) with a First Class intercalated degree in Neuroscience. Biology and Chemistry are subjects for which I have a strong enthusiasm for since studying them at secondary school level, as evidenced by my decision to study Medicine at university. Alongside offering academic support, I am also more than happy to help with medical school applications (e.g. personal statements, interviews).

Outside of my education, I am an avid musician, with Grade 8 standard in piano, flute, and viola. I was also a member of the UCL Symphony Orchestra, and was a part of the well-known UCOpera for 3 years. Art is also a passion of mine - I have regularly participated in art classes at the prestigious Slade School of Fine Art, and have also been a recipient for an Fine Art bursary allowing me to pursue this hobby. Having these strong interests outside of medicine have definitely rounded me as an individual, and have enabled me to connect more with students and create a comfortable and approachable tutoring atmosphere.

Tutoring Experience:

I have had teaching experience since school, having helped run Chemistry and Biology peer study sessions with younger years. I am a Transition Mentor for current 1st year UCL medical students, organising and running weekly group sessions that cover difficult lecture topics, and generally helping them to adapt to the different learning environment at university. I have also acted as a Peer Tutor at nearby A Level colleges, organising and running sessions tailored to students interested in applying for Medicine, and helping them to expand their thinking outside of scientific knowledge, e.g. with ethics and reasoning discussions, and medical debates.

Tutoring Approach:

I completely support the importance of a student's individual learning pace, and I will tailor my approach in line with the student's own needs and wishes while striving to achieve the best out of the student. I make the most of my teaching time by ensuring stellar organisation, and keeping structure in my teaching sessions. I especially emphasise a thorough stepwise approach, and ensuring students are comfortable with learning from first principles, such that they fully understand the foundations of their subject and thus can comfortably build up their knowledge towards more advanced topics. A strong rapport and communication between me and the student (and parents) is highly emphasised and valued, such that any potential problems are picked up on as quickly and smoothly as possible. I really cherish getting to know each student and how they think, and subsequently every approach I use is highly individualised.

A DBS check is available on request.
