Personal Description:

I have just finished my second year of Graduate Entry Medicine at Swansea University, after completing a BSc in Medical Physiology and Therapeutics (Healthcare Science) at University of Nottingham. I went straight from GCSE to A level and onto both undergrad (and now my postgraduate) degree so am accustomed to constantly learning and having left high school only 4 years ago, I have an excellent grasp on the examination format and module style of the currently A level system.

I have a relaxed but focused attitude to learning, believing that if you understand the fundamental concepts then the rest will fall into place, and I also know how difficult the progression from GCSE to A level standard can be, and aim to reassure students that some struggling is natural, and isn't a reflection on talent or academic performance.

Tutoring Experience:

Some experience of peer tutoring at A Level and some GCSE experience whilst I was still in high school. A levels were fairly recent for me so the knowledge is still fresh and relevant to the current syllabus. I am willing to tutor UKCAT and ways to approach GAMSAT , having done both exams myself.

During my 3rd year undergraduate degree, I gained a lot of experience in a teaching environment, especially in chemistry and biology as a voluntary TA. I also engaged in a peer mentoring scheme to help out the 1st years with some of the more difficult introductory aspects of the course.

Tutoring Approach:

I will tailor make the tutoring scheme to fit each individual student. I understand that some people are visual learners whilst others are auditory and aim to adjust my strategies to maximize each tutee's learning.

I will focus on whichever areas you are struggling in, whether it be a specific topic, or type of exam question that you have difficulties with. I will go over your notes with you, explain any unclear areas and provide exam style questions for you to complete, which I will then mark and provide you with feedback. This will help boost your confidence and highlight any weak areas we need to cover.
