Personal Description:

I am currently a medical student at the University of Birmingham, originally from Sheffield. I have successfully completed my 3rd year and I plan on intercalating next year to carry out research in a field of my interest. In addition to my academic degree, other interests of mine include yoga, tennis and reading. Teaching has been a passion of mine for many years and I have attempted to pursue this through numerous experiences including: my role as science prefect at school, carrying out work experience in a primary school and teaching Basic Life Support to a large cohort of students at University.

I have always held education with high value and I appreciate the importance not only of teaching children information, however doing it in such a way it sparks interest and enthusiasm. This is as developing an inquisitive mind not only motivates a student more, however, it also results in expanding the student's opportunities for the future. I am extremely enthusiastic, passionate and attempt to complete every task to the best of my ability. I hope this will be beneficial as a role of a tutor. Through my teaching experiences, it has been extremely satisfying to be able to make such a difference and help students and children further progress their learning and grasp difficult concepts.

Tutoring Experience:

I volunteered at Ecclesall Junior School and specifically my role involved supporting children in the classroom who were struggling to maintain the same pace of the class. This was when I first realised how much I enjoyed teaching. In addition, while at medical school, I have worked in my second year as a Basic Life Support teacher, involving teaching all 1st year nurses, medical students, physiotherapists and pharmacists and dentists. It required a practical exam for the 1st year students at the end of the course. This was an extremely enjoyable role for me and reinforced how much I enjoyed teaching and seeing progression over the weeks in my students. To further continue this role, I am now a examiner for the Basic Life Support/AED course accredited by the European Resuscitation Council.

Tutoring Approach:

Through my previous experiences, I have learnt the importance of excellent communication and the need to try different teaching methods, to identify which is most suitable for the student. This includes using diagrams to explain difficult concepts as well explaining a method of approach to difficult questions. Furthermore, I feel using quizzes and frequently asking relevant questions to ensure the student is engaging, participating and listening is very important to making the session memorable and ensuring the student learns as much from the class as possible.
