Degree: Medicine (Other) - Imperial College London University
Hi! I am a keen Scientist and Mathematician, passionate about sharing my excitement, understanding and exam techniques with you.
I have a wealth of experience through helping younger pupils from my school achieve entry into Medicine, and now would love to guide you to achieve your dreams. From this, I have developed skills to tailor make my tutorials to suit your preferred learning styles.
I am an approachable and calm individual, qualities which I gained when teaching Maths and volunteering with very young children in Tanzania and Bulgaria.
The above qualities and experiences will provide me with a firm foundation to help you throughout our tutorials.
I meticulously plan each tutorial based on feedback from tutees and parents. However, I am flexible, as my priority is to ensure each tutorial matches (or even exceeds!) your expectations.
For Medical School interviews, my main aim is to inspire confidence in my students. We will cover the following: work experience, personal statements, interview techniques, multiple mini interviews, ethical issues and medical literature. Mock interviews will be done in the format of your chosen University.
For admissions tests (UKCAT and BMAT) and the Sciences, I put an emphasis on past papers; having been through the process, I cannot stress enough the importance of a good examination technique.
Thus for each session, I will cover the knowledge base first, through multiple strategies (e.g. spider diagrams, notes, drawings). I then check your understanding by asking for a short review. Finally, a few minutes will always be set aside for practice questions.
Having fun is crucial to learning, so I will use websites, animation and my resources to keep the sessions engaging. By doing this, I hope to instil my passion in you.
I really believe I can have a positive impact on your education, and would greatly value such a wonderful opportunity.
If you have any questions for me, feel free to contact me on WebMail or via a Meet-the-Tutor Session.
I very much look forward to hearing from you.

Choosing the medical schools to apply to is a difficult challenge posing many dilemmas. Having been through the process myself, I have developed a series of simple questions that can help this decision making process:
1) What is my preferred learning style? http://www.hyms.ac.uk/becoming-a-doctor/which-course.html
2) Do my previous and predicted grades meet the entry requirements?
3) How well prepared am I for the admissions tests? E.g. UKCAT and BMAT
4) Which interview style do I feel most comfortable with?
5) What is the applicants to offer ratio?
6) What is my budget?
7) Do I prefer a five or six year course?
8) How far from home am I willing to go?
9) Does the setting of a university bear much importance to me? E.g. Campus or City based
10) What extra-curricular activities would I like to participate in?
11) Does the global view of a university impact my decision?
The website on question 1 has provided information on problem based vs traditional learning, and has outlined the overall techniques used by each medical school in the UK.
If one carefully works through these questions, the above becomes a very good starting point. By doing so, you will form a shortlist of universities where you are most likely to be successful and happy. The process requires extensive research done through the following means:
1) Attending open days
2) Speaking to admissions tutors
3) Seeking advice from current students
4) Studying university websites and student forums e.g. https://www.imperial.ac.uk/medicine/
5) Reading university guides
6)Undertaking aptitude testing to assess your own capabilities
I will elaborate upon these areas during the interview.see more
