About me

I have completed 4 years of Medical School and have decided to take a year out to study a Masters of Research in Global Health. This means that I am more than familiar with taking examinations and getting to grips with the full syllabus in order to feel confident going into an exam. I am hoping to become an Ophthalmic (Eye) Surgeon after I graduate. This is a competitive field, and so I have been passionate to learn as much about Human Biology as possible. I am developing my knowledge by studying to become a Personal Trainer as well as holding a committee position at Newcastle’s Ophthalmology Society. I am very enthusiastic and hard-working and would love to have the opportunity to pass my passion for learning onto others. I am organised and have developed good communication skills working as a medical student for 4 years as well as during previous work experience including previous tutoring in which I helped students achieve grades which previously seemed unachievable! I have been tutoring Biology and Maths since I was in school and so feel confident in my ability to help others fully comprehend their subjects. Biology has been a passion of mine since a very young age which has only grown as I have progressed through my medical course. I also loved mathematics throughout school and would be eager to pass my enthusiasm and simple methods of learning onto those who are keen to learn.

About my sessions

As a tutor, I found that it is very important to engage with the student, in a personalised style which works for the individual, in order to keep them motivated and willing to learn. This includes using various techniques of study in order to get the student to engage, question and learn in the most effective way, so they can make significant progress. When preparing for my lessons with my students, I like to have a preliminary session to determine areas of weakness, in order to discover the topics in which they may need the most support. These initial topics are normally the best on which to focus, so that any gaps in knowledge can be addressed. It is important for the student to know that no question is too ‘silly’ and that it is easy to go right back to basics, if that is what is required, to fill learning gaps. From there, timetabled 1-2 hourly sessions will concentrate on a particular topic, to ensure the student fully comprehends each subject area, before moving on. As the student becomes more self-assured, I would assign the student examination questions to test their understanding of the topic and monitor progress. Only once both the student and I were happy that they fully understood, would we move onto the next topic that needs to be covered. Having thoroughly revised the syllabus, practise papers and mark schemes would be used in order to assess and build confidence prior to assessments and exams.
