I'm a third year medical student at Oxford University and am currently specialising in systems neuroscience and cardiovascular physiology. I love Medicine because I'm a huge science nerd and love interacting with people from all walks of life! My previous tutoring experience is in Science and Mathematics from Year 9 onwards. I am also able to tutor those applying to medical school with personal statement editing, interview preparation and admissions tests mentoring. Having received offers from Manchester, Birmingham, Oxford and Leeds, I have experience of both panel and MMI interviews and am well placed to provide tutoring for the BMAT.

About my sessions

My approach centres around simplifying concepts brick by brick to ensure that they are easy to understand and retain. The way I typically structure my lessons is to work through past paper questions together. This is particularly useful in the run-up to GCSE and A Level exams since it familiarises candidates with exam formats and in the Science subjects especially it highlights key words in mark schemes that are required by examiners to score high marks.

My approach centres around simplifying concepts brick by brick to ensure that they are easy to understand and retain. The way I typically structure my lessons is to work through past paper questions together. This is particularly useful in the run-up to GCSE and A Level exams since it familiarises candidates with exam formats and in the Science subjects especially it highlights key words in mark schemes that are required by examiners to score high marks. Each board has a slightly different syllabus and mark scheme so I do try to only use questions from the exam board relevant to the pupil. I am flexible however so if you would prefer a different approach, such as just talking through the basic concepts then we can do that as well. If it is the desire of the pupil then I am happy to set homework and mark it prior to each session as it can be useful to identify strengths and weaknesses and is often encouraging to pupils once they see how much they've progressed. This will also give me an indication of which areas to focus on and form a basis for me to give regular feedback to the pupil. I would like to stress that ultimately it is your choice as to how these lessons are run and we can discuss this together to decide on a method that works for you.
