Personal Description:

Hi!

My name's Tom, I'm a fifth year medical student at UCL Medical School.

I attained 12A* GCSEs at Steyning Grammar School, a comprehensive school in West Sussex. During my time I received awards for outstanding academic achievement in my year group in both Latin (in year 9) and History (In year 10). Moving on to Steyning Grammar’s Sixth Form college I completed my AS and A levels, achieving 4As at AS level, 2A*s at A level and missing out on my 3rd A* in chemistry by 2 marks.

I also completed an Extended Project Qualification whilst at Steyning, for which I received an A grade. I currently study Medicine at UCL Medical School where I am in my fifth year. I graduated with a 2.1 in Medical Sciences with Physiology. I have received two certificates of merit for preclinical and clinical studies during my time at Medical School. This year I won the the British Pharmacological Society's national medical student competition for research I did during my BSc.

Outside of my studies I am a keen sportsman, playing for the university hockey and cricket first XIs. I am also a keen golfer, cricketer, and skier. I have spent my summers at Chanctonbury Community Playscheme for the past 8 years. This is a summer playscheme provides respite care for children with special needs. When I was 14 I volunteered as a 'helper' and provided 1-1 care in the day for children with greatly varying needs.

I tutor now for the enjoyment I get from seeing that 'light bulb' switch on in a student. It's a special moment when your tutoring suddenly makes it 'click' and make sense for someone.

Tutoring Experience:

I have completed over 500 hours of tuition for students of varying ages and abilities. I've got experience in many different areas. One of my longest tutoring jobs was for 3 boys (aged 8,9, 11) over from Australia for a summer, covering all areas of their syllabus, focusing particularly on maths, English and sciences. Other jobs I have done over the years include helping students achieve their A*s in GCSE and A Level studies.

I regularly go back into my old school to give talks to prospective medical students on how to get in to medical school and am well placed to provide interview and personal statement advice for any budding medical students.

Tutoring Approach:

I like my students to develop a genuine interest in their studies rather than just trying to know answers for the sake of exams. I try to focus on key areas that students struggle with so I can tailor tuition to specific needs. This not only improves understanding but makes the subject more enjoyable when they overcome a big hurdle and find out it's not as hard as it first seemed!

Enjoying the subject breeds interest in the topic, helping to create a passion for a subject that is sometimes tricky to achieve through any number of classroom hours.
