Over 2,000 students taught, over 10 curriculums designed. I am a qualified junior doctor working in London with a passion for education. I graduated in the top 20% of my class at King's College London, one of the world's most prestigious universities, studying Medicine. I studied at Tiffin Boy's School a leading grammar school in Kingston upon Thames. I took 4 A-Levels Biology, Chemistry, Maths and History, achieving 3A*s (averages above 94%) and an A. Having achieved 10 A* and an A at GCSE, I want to share my knowledge with others.
During my time at university and school I have developed fool proof techniques and tips to maximise students' grades in the shortest possible time, something teachers could not provide for me. This is something that I have gone on to publish in several medical education journals. I hope to bring the techniques I have learnt to the students that need help improving their grades and setting up their careers.
I have a lot of experience in the field of applying to universities and a future career in medicine. I went onto apply through the UCAS system and received offers from King's College London, UCL, and Queen Mary. I went to study medicine at King's College London.
I have had a wide range of experience in teaching and tutoring. Over the past 7 years I have tutored over 50 students on a long term basis and over 250 in total. I also tutor at Advance in Medicine and Surgery (AIMS), a company that assists students' in their dreams of getting into Medicine. I have been employed by two online tuition companies, over webcam, and have also completed a two week work experience as a teacher's assistant last summer. I have taught a total of 650 students through AIMS and a further 1,500 medical students during my time at university.
My teaching experience ranges from teaching 5 year olds, to transforming D grade GCSE students to A/A* students, to teaching complex medical principles to final year medical students. I am confident I am able to transform the attitude and grades of my students.
I am extremely enthusiastic, approachable and inspire a love for the subject in the student. I use a spiral curriculum which I set out when I first meet the tutee and formulate a week by week plan for the student. I use a range of techniques to convey simple principles from didactic to practical to reverse engineering the problem, to ensure the student has a good grasp of the subject.
The use of a spiral curriculum where the student regularly revisits core principles of the subject ensure they are very comfortable with the subject and consolidate their learning regularly. I use regular progress tests to identify areas requiring focus and areas of strength. Parents will remain in the loop with weekly progress reports and updates.
Towards exam season - I like to create model answers for exam questions to ensure the student scores the maximum they can attain. This has worked extremely well as many exam questions follow the same principles and tend to be repeats with superficials changes.
Above all I aim to instil a love for hard-work and dedication to the subject.
