Personal Description:

Hello! My name`s Rij, and I'm a 4th Year student, studying Medicine at Imperial College, London.

My main subjects are, due to my degree, Biology and Chemistry (both of which I am comfortable to tutor up to A level). I also have a keen interest in English, Maths and French, which made up a core part of my IB in years 12 and 13. I can provide tutoring in these subjects up to GCSE level.

Aside from academia, I'm heavily involved with drama and music at my medical school, performing regularly throughout term time. It keeps me sane, providing the ideal foil to a stressful degree.

Tutoring Experience:

I mentored regularly during my Sixth Form, as part of a weekly lunchtime scheme set up to help those who felt they needed it. This proved fruitful, as my tutee felt he improved significantly over the 18 months I tutored him in Maths.

I am also soon to commence tutoring junior medical students from Imperial on their clinical examinations to pass 3rd Year exams (this is not paid work). At our medical school, there is an incredible emphasis on learning how to teach; we are forever being taught teaching and communication skills, with an eventual view to teach junior doctors, or even provide lectures for medical students. As a result, I am very comfortable in a one-on-one teaching environment.

I also have 2 years experience as a Manager of a telephone fundraising campaign at my sixth form. Part of my job was to teach the callers how to make phone calls of this nature, in what was a very organised and structured weekend of training in preparation for the campaign. The rest of my job involved communicating effectively, and considerately, with the team during the campaign to keep up morale and provide my experience, as a caller, in difficult situations. In total, 4 years helping my school with these campaigns has taught me a great deal about how to convey messages clearly, appropriately and efficiently. I believe these skills are highly transferable to tutoring,

Tutoring Approach:

I like to have a relaxed and fun atmosphere in tutoring sessions, with an aim to help the tutee engage with the subject material. I know from first-hand experience how difficult education can be when delivered dryly and without enthusiasm.

I am a firm believer in getting the tutee to do a lot of the talking. Being fed a constant stream of information does not cement anything; unless the student articulates the content in his or her own words, the information will not be accessible.

I would read up on the tutee's syllabus in advance of each session, to grasp exactly what the course requirements are. I am aware these vary between AQA, OCR, Edexcel and IB, but are generally variations on a theme, with the emphasis sometimes shifting.

Finally, I like summarising what has been covered, at the end of each session. I also like recapping what we covered the previous session at the start of the next session.
