About me

I am a 3rd year medical student at Exeter University. I love medicine, from the biochemical aspect all the way to the social aspect, and I am a naturally friendly, motivated figure. I tutor first years and A level/GCSE students in subject specific knowledge and med-school entry/admissions tests through my volunteering roles and as a university Student Ambassador. A reason I love my course is because it has offered me the opportunity to learn so much through discussion and debate and I believe...

I am a 3rd year medical student at Exeter University. I love medicine, from the biochemical aspect all the way to the social aspect, and I am a naturally friendly, motivated figure. I tutor first years and A level/GCSE students in subject specific knowledge and med-school entry/admissions tests through my volunteering roles and as a university Student Ambassador. A reason I love my course is because it has offered me the opportunity to learn so much through discussion and debate and I believe together we can make an interesting and dynamic space for discussion and learning using this principle, and we can commit to a journey together to achieve your goals. I have many responsibilities within university life, including organising and participating in many volunteering activities, many of which relate to teaching. This makes me a well-trained and very eager individual, who can't wait to start working with you to encourage you to ace those exams. As a volunteering project, I co-founded a support group for those struggling with their mental health and have been trained by the national charity Student Minds to provide this, making me aware of the stress that exams can put on a person. Therefore, sessions that I provide will not only be informative and useful, but hopefully fun and inspiring, so we can work together to be the best that we can be.

About my sessions

I think discussion is a key to learning. Within my medical school, we use a problem-based learning approach; we start with a problem case, and ask/answer questions about it to cover our curriculum. We can do this with your curriculum too, by taking concepts, expanding and dissecting them and helping you build your knowledge through communication. I believe that learning should be fun; as a flexible and engaged tutor I try my best to encourage this by using interesting, tactile mediums. These...

I think discussion is a key to learning. Within my medical school, we use a problem-based learning approach; we start with a problem case, and ask/answer questions about it to cover our curriculum. We can do this with your curriculum too, by taking concepts, expanding and dissecting them and helping you build your knowledge through communication. I believe that learning should be fun; as a flexible and engaged tutor I try my best to encourage this by using interesting, tactile mediums. These could include drawing, flashcard making, or even clay modelling. We can create something together and we can work not only towards achieving the best grades but learning how best you learn to prepare you for your next steps through life. Our session will start with a question. We can pose ideas that relate to it to activate our prior learning and then progress together by creating something, so you can learn as you build a useful revision resource. I also use “question boxes”, in which questions you have about the topic can be answered by us together as a plenary. This reminds us how the topics we study all link together, and even when we may feel lost in a subject, our current understanding can be a great foundation on which to build. To measure progress, we can look at practice questions together in a session and discuss your answers, where you would get marks and how we can improve, while also celebrating the progress we have made.
