About me

My name's Jacob and I'm a medical student at the University of Glasgow! As well as studying for the MBChB, I have recently graduated with a first class honours BSc (Med.Sci) in Pharmacology. I decided I wanted to study medicine when I was around 14 and haven't looked back since! I find biology fascinating and this helped me to do well with studies through school. I am patient when it comes to teaching but also engaging. With this in mind I would like to help my students learn abou...

My name's Jacob and I'm a medical student at the University of Glasgow! As well as studying for the MBChB, I have recently graduated with a first class honours BSc (Med.Sci) in Pharmacology. I decided I wanted to study medicine when I was around 14 and haven't looked back since! I find biology fascinating and this helped me to do well with studies through school. I am patient when it comes to teaching but also engaging. With this in mind I would like to help my students learn about their subjects in a way the find interesting, as this will help them perform better. I secured a place at medical school first time so I know what it takes for a successful application, likewise I would be happy to take any students who need help with any aspect of medical school applications as appropriate. Within medical school I have volunteered to run various revision sessions for lower years and enjoy teaching. I also have a wide range of hobbies and interests from music through to martial arts and use this to fill my time outside of university. I look forward to hearing from you.

About my sessions

My teaching sessions will be very student focused, everyone learns differently so I will be happy to set up a free 15 minute meeting to discuss what you need to learn and how you like to learn, and together we can find what works best for you.

I am happy to teach in any format, such as going over past papers, setting and marking tasks, standard tutorials, or question and answer sessions.


I would recommend that a student sets some goals with myself in order to monitor...

My teaching sessions will be very student focused, everyone learns differently so I will be happy to set up a free 15 minute meeting to discuss what you need to learn and how you like to learn, and together we can find what works best for you.

I am happy to teach in any format, such as going over past papers, setting and marking tasks, standard tutorials, or question and answer sessions.


I would recommend that a student sets some goals with myself in order to monitor progress and I am happy to help set these. At the end of a lesson I will provide feedback and set targets for any tasks to be completed before the next lesson. This can then be reviewed at the start of the next lesson, to ensure that effective learning has taken place.

In order for this to work best for the student I am happy to take feedback about aspects of a lesson that went particularly well or which the student found less useful, in order to personalise the experience.

With regards to medical school applications I would run my sessions in a similar way with the inclusion of mock interviews or discussion about possible questions where applicable.

Jacob has been an amazing tutor to my son through his GCSEs. Very focused and friendly and at the pace my son needed. Elliot achieved a 9 in biology and 2 marks off an 8 in chemistry.
