About me

A little about myself

I am a medical student at Newcastle University with experience in both the clinical and pre-clinical aspects of the course. I have a passion for teaching, something which will come more apparent to tutees! I have helped students before and during university; including running the peer teaching program for first year medical students.

Our sessions

All of the sessions are tailored to the student and their needs with an agreed outline and outcomes. These start with the fundamentals and understanding concepts rather than a lot of verbatum knowledge. This allows the student to build on strong foundations to cover many topics. These skills are extremly useful and can be applied in many settings, not just tutorials. The sessions are delivered in a fun and imforamtive way, utlising many techniques and media formats.

Having applied recently and helping students apply to university (many for medicine) I enjoy guiding students through this process, which can often be as stressful for parents as the applicant, so advice can also be appropiate. We cover the all important UCAS form, to the admissions test and interviews. I can also help with students who are wondering about what degrees to do or where to apply. 

If you have any questions please do not be afraid to ask!

Questions Elgan has answered

How do I stand out at interviews?

Standing out at medical schools interview is paramount to obtaining that crucial offer ahead of the hundreds of other applicants. One of the best ways is through thorough and excellent preparation. The process starts way before the actual interview as you should learn what kind of interview the medical school conducts for example MMI (multiple mini interviews) or panel interview. Hopefully you will have applied to universites which suit your preffered interview but this is not essential!

Preparation will also include formulating answers to common interview questions like "Why medicine?", "Why not nursing?" and "Why this medical school?". Some advise against this as it may make you look robotic. However with enough practice and with answers that are true to what you believe they do not look made up as they are authentic to you. Through my experience having passed my interviews recently I can give excellent advice to an applicant so you can get that coveted place at medical school!
