Personal Description:

I have just finished my 2nd year of medicine at UCL, and am going into my 3rd year to do an intercalated BSc in Sports and Exercise medicine. In both my years of study, I have received an academic merit - placing within the top 20% of students.
In my A-levels, I took Maths, Further Maths, Biology and Chemistry and achieved 4 A*s.

Tutoring Experience:

I spent much of last year working for another agency, being consulted on medical school entry and interview techniques, alongside personal statement work. This also involved providing support for medical school entrance exams - the BMAT and UKCAT tests. In this capacity, I also tutored A-level Biology, Maths, and Chemistry.

I also have some experience in providing peer support and academic support to younger years in the medical school.

Tutoring Approach:

I think learning is best when one is encouraged to find the answer themself - I find it helps to keep it 'stuck'! Therefore, I try to encourage independence, and guide students to find the right answer. This also helps build confidence - something I think is very important for academic success.
Finally, I think it is good to spend time pushing students outside of their comfort zone; to consider topics that may are not be in the curriculum. A well rounded appreciation of a topic provides a firm platform for further study, and provides understanding beyond just knowledge of the facts.
