I am a fifth year medical student at Imperial College London and am very approachable and patient when it comes to working with kids. Having achieved excellent results in both GCSE’s and A-levels and through tutoring students for the past 5 years, I know what it requires to bring the best out of a pupil, and that with hard work and the belief that you can do well, that anyone can go on to achieve their ambitions of the best grades. Having also just entered medical school, I understand their requirements extremely well, and can assist with UKCAT (my score: 740) and BMAT (My score: 6.7, 6.5, 4A) revision as well as working on interview and the UCAS application.
I have been working for keystone tutors (one of the most prestigious tutoring companies in London, with branches in singapore and hong kong) for the past 3 years (I am on their website) and I am regarded as a very experienced and professional tutor. I have also had some extra training with regards to the different approaches with different pupils. Since joining university, I have assisted more than 20 students with their studies, all of varying levels and take pride in watching them improve over the past few months. The age group varies from doing the 11+ test all the way up to A-level sciences and maths. Having helped a couple of them with GCSE's last year, they improved from a C to an A in their sciences and achieved A*s in Maths.
During my A-levels, I was biology and maths prefect, so every week I would run drop-in clinics for year 10 pupils to help with areas they didn't quite understand. Having had some very influential teachers throughout secondary school, I tried to emulate them when tutoring these students. I am fully aware of how beneficial a one-to-one session can be and look to bring the best out of the pupils.
With regards to medicine, I helped many medical school students with interview skills they have received offers from Imperial, bristol, kings, UCL. I have read many personal statements and so can give helpful advice on things to include that universities will look out for. I was also president of Medic Society during my last year, which involved informing pupils in the younger years about the application process as well as giving them interview and UCAS application preparation. They all found it incredibly useful and have all received offers from medical schools since.
“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” (Benjamin Franklin)
My teaching style is based around this motto. My sessions are as interactive as possible, explaining complex ideas in inspiring and interesting ways, making it simple to understand. I believe in setting a good base on which to build upon and then tackling exam questions and focusing on exam technique. Nothing is easy and I do expect the child to work hard in order to understand certain aspects, at the same time I am not stern.
Something I certainly found extremely confidence-building was learning beyond the restrictions of the course guide so that I walked into the exam hall relaxed, knowing that I had excess knowledge, and that the examiners could throw any question at me. It will also help the child’s understanding if they do intend to carry on the subject.
Of course I would not pile on too much information if the child does feel he/she is struggling, and would work at a pace they feel is comfortable.
Most important thing though, above all else, is to have fun and enjoy what you are learning, and I feel I can provide this.
For potential medicine students, I can provide tips and questions for BMAT and UKCAT practice. Along with this, I can prepare you for the various different university interviews, having experienced all of the ones which I applied for; Cambridge, Imperial College, St Andrews and Aberdeen. Another important field is the personal statement and I can help to improve it as well as relay it to other contacts I have to proof read it and offer constructive criticism.
