About me

Introduction

Hi, my name is Phil and I'm a third year medical student at Bristol. I have always been interested in teaching others and as such am considering a proffesion in medical education. I have notable experience teaching; In 2010 I helped tutor my sister and cousin in GCSE biology and Chemistry, I have volunteered for the last three years at a sports centre for the disabled teaching people different life skills and I spent last Summer teaching Spanish children English. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the experiences I have had teaching and would be incredibly grateful if I got the opportunity to Tutor anyone using this site.

Style of Tutoring

If you accept me as your tutor I will be enthiusiastic, patient and condfident at all times. Our sessions would be based on you and therefore you pick exactly what you would like learn. You may wish to learn everything in your syllabus or just specific parts in lots of detail, you may wish to learn from exams or look beyond the syllabus for areas of interest that are not taught at school/college. I am happy to help you with whatever you require.

Other

My interest outside of study are; rugby, cricket, drama, surfing, volunteering. I have mentioned these because I am keen to develop a good relationship with tutees beyond the work I will be tutoring them. Though our sessions will revolve around the subjects they want to learn I hope that they can still chat to me about other interests and extra curricular aspects of life if they so wish.

Questions Philip has answered

Describe how the structure of alveoli in the lungs enables efficient oxygen supply during aerobic respiration?

The alveoli are sac like structures which have a large surface area to volume ratio allowing for fast diffusion of oxygen into the blood (Fick's law). This large SA:V ratio is generated because the alveoli have thin membranes and also lie incredibly close to the blood vessels they need to supply.

Introduce your statement with a good opening line which concisely shows why you want to study the subject you are applying for. Then, go into personal details and where your love for the subject first started.

To what degree does the UKCAT matter in terms of medical school?

For your application, the score you obtain in the UKCAT will be a contributing factor as to whether you get in, however, it is not the sole reason you will get into university. You must also focus on the interview, your personal statement and work experience as other factors that will help you to get into university. Once you are at university your UKCAT score will not be important. However, the skills you learn in the UKCAT can be transferred to the Situational judgement test (SJT) you do in Year 5 which makes up a large proportion of your final year mark (60%).
