This is how 3 referees rated Winston:
Hi I'm Winston, I am a medical student at Plymouth University. I am passionate about medicine and passionate about teaching. I would like to think that I am a kind and adaptable person, able to get along really well with most people! People often say I am very funny too!
I am able to offer tuition in Biology at GCSE and A- Level, as well as interview skills and BMAT/UKCAT advice for getting into medical school. For medical students at university, I offer comprehensive training on anatomy & physiology, clinical learning and clinical skills & examinations.
Please call/text me **Telephone Number Removed** if you have any questions.
Enjoy learning! Enjoy Medicine! They say if you love your work, you will never have to work a day in your life and I find that very true. Throughout this year I have been teaching medical students every week and it has been enjoyable as well as highly efficient and effective. The thing that makes me most happy is when my students leave with a smile on their face, because they have learnt something without having to struggle for it.
It's important for me to use my intuition to understand my students. I know how to help students relax with well timed jokes, but I also know how to hone in and focus when important points need to be understood.
That is the advantage of being a student teacher, I know what it feels like to be stressed and worried, and put under pressure with upcoming exams. It's important to me to not only teach, but also help students cope with this pressure.
I first of all try to understand what my students want. Assessing their goals and then making a SMART plan helps me to organise the structure and course of my teaching.
If you don't know about SMART, here we go!
Organisation is a critical aspect of medicine and is something many students find difficulty with. Often, medical students are taught several different concepts without being able to realise the connections between them. I found the following step-wise process helpful in solving this issue:
1) Normal anatomy & physiology
2) Pathological processes
3) Diagnosis & Management
The last part includes clinical examinations, utilising understanding of the former parts to differentiate between normal and abnormal. Thereafter, understanding the role of management in attempting to re-establish normality.
I feel this conceptual, applied approach to learning is the most rewarding and interesting style of education. I sincerely hope my teaching can help my students achieve their targets, but I also want them to enjoy the journey too.
