About me

I am currently a fourth year medical student at the University of Liverpool and I graduated from the University of Nottingham with a 2:1 in Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine BSc in 2016.


Not to sound stereotypical but I have always wanted to do medicine. I find the human body and how it works such an interesting topic and really enjoy working out what happens when it goes wrong and how to treat it. The practical side is probably the best bit because you get to put into practice what you learn, meet lots of new people and also see many different specialities.


Throughout the years I have taken many exams and the best bit of advice I can give is focus on yourself. Ignore what other people are doing and how they’re doing it and do whats best for you, as what works for one person doesn’t always work for another. Some people work better in groups and some on their own, some like to read their notes and some learn better listening; try different methods and pick the best for you.


I am an enthusiastic teacher and also received help from tutors myself during so I know what makes a good tutor and what doesn’t, and what people expect when they book a tutor.

About my sessions

-The first session would be based around finding weaknesses and strengths and also setting goals so that we know what to work on and we have something to aim for.


-To prepare for the session I will go over the curriculum for the subject and year that the student is at so that the lessons are targeted at the correct level. I will create a lesson plan for each session with objectives to be achieved, worksheets and each session will end with a mini test based on the objectives of the lesson.


-Having the student make their own goals I feel motivates them to focus and refine their own learning style.

Questions Jessica has answered

What experience do I need?

In terms of experience, some people say the more you do the better but I believe that it is more what you get out of the experience than how many you do. It is better to do 1 or 2 and learn a lot than do 5 or 6 and not learn anything. When you are on your experience, try and talk to lots of different people as everyone has gone through different things in their lives so it os good to listen and learn from them. Plus once you are a doctor, these people could be your patients. I would also say that your work experience or volunteering does not have to be solely medical as they want you to show you are a well rounded person. My work experiences were Camp America as a lifeguard, volunteering at my local hospital and volunteering with a local charity. Out of all three of them I would say I learnt more doing Camp America purely because I threw myself into every opportunity I had and met such a wide range of people that when it came to personal statements and interviews, I had a lot to reflect upon and talk about.In terms of experience, some people say the more you do the better but I believe that it is more what you get out of the experience than how many you do.
