About me

ABOUT ME

I'm a 4th year clinical medicine student at New College, Oxford with a particular interest in physiology and circadian biology. I have always loved maths and science and want to help you get to grips with the trickier concepts! Having received interviews and offers from all 4 medical schools I applied to, I know exactly how to help with medicine admissions and admissions tests.

My passion and enthusiasm for tutoring and admissions comes from volunteering with children since I was 13. I volunteered with my local Brownies, after-school club and junior school, and since coming to University I have been involved in Teddy Bear Hospital, which teaches young children about medical concepts in an interactive way. I believe that this collaboration between teacher and student allows for the best understanding and results!

Questions Gwendolen has answered

How much work experience do I need?

It's not the amount of work experience that matters, it is what you get out of it. Getting medical work experience is difficult so every little helps, but if you only manage a few days in a GP surgery, or even just medically relevant volunteering, what matters is what you have taken away and learnt from that experience. Personal statements should not just read like a list of all the things you've done, they should show reflection and the ability to learn from what you have seen.
