Information About Luke - Chepstow tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Luke:
Hi! My name's Luke and I've just completed my first year studying medicine at Imperial College London. I started university with four A*s at A level (mathematics, further mathematics, chemistry and biology). As I am studying medicine, I have been DBS checked and also sat both the UKCAT and BMAT. On the back of these admissions tests, I received invitations to interview from all four medical schools to which I applied, and was offered a place from three of these. I am hence very comfortable teaching both biology and medical admissions tests.
Previously, I helped set up and taught within a scheme to help 11-year-old students who had just entered secondary school to bring their reading, writing and mathematics up to the expected standard at that age, providing valuable experience of one-to-one tutoring and also explaining a subject matter at a level which is suitable to the student.
I firmly believe that the key to success in the study of sciences is to develop an understanding of concepts, rather than simply rote learning a list of facts (although unfortunately, there's no escaping learning respiration and photosynthesis!). If you have any questions about what we're learning, be they on the syllabus or not, feel free to ask. I can't promise that I'll know the answer, but I will quite happily go away and do some research so I can provide some clarity.
As far as structure is concerned, I personally feel it should be very much tailored to the student in question. Different people learn in different ways, and so I would always be quick to find out how the student would prefer lessons to be structured. If this tutoring were alongside school studies of the subject, this could either be based around reinforcing any concepts which were found difficult or as a revision of everything taught. Ideally, I would ask that you let me know a couple days prior to our lesson what topic you have been learning and which bits in particular you would like to go over, so that I can tailor any material precisely to your needs. There's no point in wasting your time going over the bits you already know inside-out!
