Personal Description:

Hello potential tutees! My name is Rachael, i am 29 and live in north manchester. I am a former research scientist who retrained as a medical doctor. I graduated with Honours from my graduate medicine degree at Leicester University in July of 2018 and currently work as a Junior doctor in the north west deanery. With my previous degree experience, I studied science at university level for a total of 10 years.

I can confidently tutor all aspects of biology at any level for all age groups. I have further specific expertise in human biology, medical sciences and anatomy aimed at degree level students. Additionally, I have several years of experience working with A level and degree students who wish to study medicine. I have guided my students to compile successful medical school applications and achieve highly in admissions tests (UKCAT and GAMSAT) for both undergraduate (5 year) and graduate (4 year) courses. As part of my medical school admissions tuition I also offer medical school interview preparation and perform "mock interviews" for my students to help them improve their chances of getting that all important offer!

Tutoring Experience:

I first began tutoring science during the second year of my undergraduate degree in 2009 and expanded this experience through training as a graduate teaching assistant during my masters degree in 2012. I have tutored many university students in both specific subject areas in which they needed some extra help (including human anatomy and physiology, biochemistry, genetics, endocrinology, immunology etc) or in general aspects of A level biology which they may have struggled with to help them keep up with their classmates. I have also been helping students with medical school applications since 2009 and love to keep in touch with my students who are now training to be doctors.

Tutoring Approach:

I do appreciate that every student will like to learn in a different way so i aim to be flexible with my approach. I know how hard it can be to get to grips with tough subjects and complex ideas and over the years i have developed several techniques to try and make things easier to digest. I plan quizzes to keep my students on their toes and have designed games, rhymes and even songs to help them retain difficult information. I want my students to learn as much as they can whilst also being engaged and enjoying the learning process.
