I am a third year Medical Physiology and Therapeutics student the University of Nottingham. I thoroughly enjoy my subject as I am passionate about all things science - particularly the human body . With first-hand experience of the stresses felt when facing 11 GCSEs and 4 A-Levels, I want to do my best to support other students through the challenging (and rewarding!) process. I pride myself on being a diligent student and over the many years have learnt useful tip & tricks in studying; handling deadlines, stresses and anxieties which helped me push my own limits - skills I would love to impart to my tutees!

 

I was incredibly lucky to have excellent teachers during my GCSEs/A-Levels who were able to make even the most complex concepts seem simple through dynamically structed lessons. I hope to emulate this in my tutoring - by leading informal, friendly sessions in which my tutees are comfortable to ask any question or resolve any query.

 

Aside from my studies, I am also Vice President of Nottingham Marrow, a student-led volunteering society. Marrow has become an exceptional part of my life and through it I have refined my skills in time management, organisation, leadership and communication.

About my sessions

I will prepare and tailor lessons to my tutee’s individual needs - suggested by tutees themselves or gauged by myself off an initial talk and subsequent lessons. We'll talk through key concepts, any areas of uncertainly, what their goals are and establish the best methods to meet (or hopefully exceed) them.

 

Application of knowledge has become a skill that the re-structured exams heavily focus on (as opposed to rote recall). It can be a pretty difficult skill to master as you...

Application of knowledge has become a skill that the re-structured exams heavily focus on (as opposed to rote recall). It can be a pretty difficult skill to master as you're faced with unfamiliar problems. However, using my own experience in becoming confident with these types of questions, I aim to guide my tutees through it step by step. A genuine understanding of concepts is key and I can help clear any areas of confusion through use of examples and dynamic explanations. 

 

Throughout the session, progress will be ensured using my own example questions in an informal, conversational manner. This allows us to talk about what the question is asking, what topics/concepts are relevant and how to effectively structure an answer. Alternatively, having students “teach me” concepts is not only an excellent way to ensure understanding but consolidates their own knowledge while reinforcing confidence in themselves. And since practice makes perfect…to conclude, we will tackle real exam questions and I’ll have students walk me through their approach and thought process when answering.

Mariam is an amazing tutor, she is relatable and always made the lesson enjoyable. She was always patient when there was a particular topic that I was struggling with and was great at explaining it in a simple way but still including all the detail necessary. She had great resources such as power-points, exam questions, diagrams etc. and always tailored the lesson to my needs. She has really helped me improve my grades, would definitely recommend!
