Morden Tutor

I’m a third-year medical student, studying at St. George’s University of London. My medical studies and previous experiences in working with the public have given me an ability, often mentioned in verbal feedback from colleagues, to confidently talk to any person that I meet and make them feel at ease with me whilst we can discuss any topic that we need to. My clinical placements have enabled me to develop my communication skills further, by giving me the chance to talk to people of all ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds, and let me form a conversation with them whilst potentially covering very personal elements of a medical history. My course incorporates a lot of small group teaching, where we are put together in groups of 6-8 students, and essentially asked to teach each other about certain cases, anatomy, or clinical skills. I have a keen interest in medical education, and am currently helping on a literature review into the workings of medical examinations.

Tutoring Experience

  • We have small group teaching in my course, and I am almost always the first to be up at a whiteboard, drawing a diagram, writing a list, or trying to make sense of a difficult concept to help the group.
  • In the last 3 years, I have been called upon multiple times for help with maths and statistics, by both my sister and one of her friends. Both were very negative about their chances with their degrees because they needed to understand their data, specifically for their dissertations. I was able to walk each one through systematically, until they could understand their data, and understand why certain things had been done to give them their analysis. This showed when my sister graduated with the best dissertation in her year, and her friend is now a qualified teacher.
  • In year 11 we were given one afternoon a week to go and do a choice of extracurricular activities, it was here that I realised how much I enjoyed teaching as I would go to my local primary school and act as a teaching assistant for the afternoons.
  • In years 12 and 13, I became a qualified cheerleading instructor. Whilst not technically teaching, I was working with children from the age of 8 up to 17, and coaching them through a routine. This was a perfect opportunity for me to improve my teaching abilities by tailoring my coaching based upon the squad in front of me.

Tutoring Approach

I can vary my teaching styles to suit the student, usually I like to use examination questions to reinforce learning. I'm very happy to make powerpoint presentations or other forms of learning aids if requested.
