About Me & Qualifications:
I'm a 4th year medical student at Imperial College, currently completing an intercalated BSc degree in Cardiovascular Sciences.
I completed my GCSEs and A-levels at the KEVI Camp Hill School in Birmingham, achieving straight 10 A*s at GCSE and 3 A* and 1 A at A-level.
Why do I tutor?
I'm very passionate about tutoring as I've personally found that it can be incredibly helpful. I have found that being able to speak to someone about my work on a one-to-one basis allowed me to cover and understand far more than was taught in lessons. I found that being able to clarify a difficult concept there and then was very effective and allowed me to retain more information. Also, it was very useful having access to someone who had been through the process recently, as they know what you are going through and can help you in a way that perhaps school teachers cannot.
Having gained so much from being a tutee, I now want to give students the chance to have the same rewarding and beneficial experience as I did.
I have been a tutor with MyTutor for around a year, having completed over 60 tutorials on this site so far. As well as this, I regularly tutor students in the earlier years of medical school, as well as my peers.
I tutor A level and GCSE Biology and Chemistry, as well as advising on university applications e.g. personal statements and interviews. When I was applying to university, I did a lot of research and spoke to many admissions tutors. Therefore I believe that I know what universities are looking for, and what it takes to make your application stand out from the rest. I also help with studying for both major types of medical school admissions tests, having had offers from Imperial College, a BMAT university, as well as Barts and the London, a UKCAT university.
Our sessions will be guided by the student. I'm a firm believer in being interactive; I find that you learn a lot better if you have to think about things for yourself. I am very patient, and will always ensure you are happy before continuing.
I use lots of different teaching methods e.g. presentation slides, diagrams and drawings (I apologise in advance for my atrocious artistic skills!). I'm also an advocate of using past exam questions, but only after fully covering the content.
Overall, I hope the sessions will be fun and engaging, and you will find that you've learnt a lot in a very short space of time.
So if you'd like someone who is friendly and willing to go the extra mile to help you, contact me now and we can arrange a free Meet the Tutor session. I look forward to hearing from you! :)

This is a very difficult question, particularly as with medicine, you are limited to 4 instead of the normal 5 UCAS applications. There are over 30 medical schools that all have very different requirements. For example, some focus heavily on the UKCAT while others are more reliant on GCSEs, AS levels or predicted grades. The first this to do is to look at your own personal circumstances. Are you happy moving to a university far from home, or would you prefer being close by? Then its also very important to look at the type of course offered by the university. Some universities are very PBL heavy, while others have a predominantly lecture-based way of learning. Lots of people neglect this point and focus so much of getting into medicine that when they actually do, they find that the method of learning does not suit them at all. So it is worth bearing this in mind.
This should help whittle down the list of universities to a more manageable number. Then its a good idea to look at the entrance requirements of each university's admissions page. Finally, you can always email the admissions tutors with your personal circumstances and I have found that they are only too happy to help.see more
