I'm going on to be a first year medic student, and in my free time I'm looking to teach younger students maths, biology or chemistry. I've always had a strong passion in science, I prefer not to just memorise the facts but to understand them. This way, I learnt how to approach exam questions better and achieve my end goal. I've been wanting to do medicine since a young age and during my educational journey I've learnt many skills in finding the best way to achieve those high grades. Being a student who has just finished A-levels it makes it easier for me to understand the level of difficulty and stress students at the moment go through, but also the numerous ways to tackle the problems and make revision fun and easy.
I've had many teaching experiences throughout my life. I have a younger sister who is now going into Year 11, and I have tutored her through her exams. I was a teaching assistant at a language learning class. I, myself have had a couple of tutors and I've been able to experience the way they teach and pick out the teaching styles they used, that helped me the most.
My approach to tutoring would first to be understanding and knowing the facts. I would test students according to the specification as that is the key to knowing all the information for the exams. Also, knowing extra information beyond specification is helpful but should only be done after the specification is understood with deep knowledge. This is the first step I would take. Then once I am sure my students are confident with their knowledge I'd move on to exam style questions as they are the next vital step. It helps understand the various style of questions and pick out important points for similar style questions. Analysing questions before answering is also something I think is key.
