About me

About Me:

I am a French medical student at Bristol University. Prior to studying medicine, I completed a BSc (Hons) in Biomedical Sciences and a PhD in Stem Cell research. Needless to say that I love biology and I hope that I can get you to love it too. 

The Sessions:

Biology

I am here to help you and we will go over whatever you need help with. The best is for you to pick 1-2 topics that you will want to focus on during the session. We will go over basic principles before practising exam questions. 

French

Many students do not have the opportunity to practice speaking in French with a French person! This will be your opportunity to do so in a safe environment. I know how intimidating it can be to speak a foreign language and hopefully I can help you build your confidence. 

Medical school

I know how stressful the application process can be and I can help you with your UCAS application, go over your personal statement and help you practice for your interview  . 

What next?

If you think that I can help you, do not hesitate to get in touch via a 'WebMail' or book a free 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website). Let me know what your are struggling with and which exams your are preparing for and we can work through it together. 

I hope to meet you soon.

Questions Laureen has answered

How do I know if a French verb belongs to the 1st, 2nd of 3rd conjugation group?

1st conjugation group Verbs in this group finish with "ER" e.g. manger, nager, jouer 2nd conjugation group Verbs in this group finish with "IR" e.g. finir, salir,  3rd congugation group Verbs in this group are irregular and can finish in "RE", "OIR", "IR" or "ER". e.g. être, savoir, rire, a...

1st conjugation group

Verbs in this group finish with "ER" e.g. manger, nager, jouer

2nd conjugation group

Verbs in this group finish with "IR" e.g. finir, salir, 

3rd congugation group

Verbs in this group are irregular and can finish in "RE", "OIR", "IR" or "ER". e.g. être, savoir, rire, aller. 

One way to differentiate verbs from the second group and the 3rd group is by conjugating them at the Participe Passé tense. If it finishes in "issant", it belongs to the second group.  For instance "salir" would be "il est salissant" once conjugated, making it a 2nd group verb and not a 3rd group one.

I absolutely do not regret my decision to go to medical school as a graduate student.  

When you are a graduate, finances and familly life weigh a lot in your decision process. Plan how you are going to finance medical school in advance as you do not want the extra stress of money matters. There are bursaries available via the NHS and the University. 

I recommend doing a lot of work experience in order to confirm that you like being in contact with patients and how fast-paced medicine is. 

Going back to study after working for a couple of yours can be tough but you will have developped your learning style and usually be more organised and motivated to learn. 

There will be other mature students on the course and medical students are generally quite mature so I would not worry about the age gap. 

If medicine is your passion, go for it, the rest will work out as it should.
