I'm a 5th year medical student at Imperial College London and am currently studying for the MBBS degree to work as a doctor. This year I graduated with a BSc (hons) degree in medical biosciences. I have tutored for over 3 years mainly covering ks3 to A level. I left high school with 10 A*s and 5As and was awarded an academic scholarship at my sixth form: East Norfolk Sixth form College. I studied 5 As levels including: Maths(A), Further maths(A), Biology(A), Chemistry(A) and Physics(A). At A levels I achieved 3 A* and 1A in one sitting. Maths (A*), Chemistry(A*), biology(A*), Physics(A). I also have some experience in programming with python and SQLite.
I have always enjoyed sports and have previously played county cricket for the Norfolk cricket team. I also currently represent Imperial college medical school for rugby. One of my other hobbies is to play the piano at which I'm currently a grade 6.
I am an experienced tutor and have previously worked for a large tutoring company over the last 3 years, but now want to work privately. All my students have seen improvements in their grades so far, and this is a record I work hard to maintain. I also have a lot of experience in helping medical school applicants go through the application process and preparation for the interviews.
In my 4th year of medical school I gained invaluable experience in teaching through being the the academic officer. This role involved tutoring younger medical students for their exams and organising a mock OSCE.
During my 5th year I completed a teaching skills course from which I learnt many techniques in teaching and ways of personalising my teaching to individual learning methods. I also completed a level 2 child safeguarding course as part of my paediatrics placement.
Furthermore, I have tutored adult learners in GCSE maths and helped them to secure the jobs they applied for.
My approach to tutoring starts by confirming what topics are to be covered in the next session to allow the student to prepare adequately. Then at the beginning of each session I check that the student has understood what we have covered in the previous session. During the session I either provide questions to work with or teaching depending on the situation. At The end of the session I normally arrange next weeks session and discuss both with the student and parents what we have covered and how it went. My tutoring is very active and I try to engage the student by asking them to explain their thought processes and asking lots of questions. I have found that this approach is very efficient and has provided great results in the past.
