About me

I am currently studying medicine at university and am very passionate about the subject. I love the amount of patient contact my course has to offer and the rewarding nature of knowing I've made a difference in someone's life. Since my first year I've taken part in multiple societies my university has to offer, both academic and extra-curricular which has helped me mature to a well-rounded individual.

I am currently studying medicine at university and am very passionate about the subject. I love the amount of patient contact my course has to offer and the rewarding nature of knowing I've made a difference in someone's life. Since my first year I've taken part in multiple societies my university has to offer, both academic and extra-curricular which has helped me mature to a well-rounded individual. This has also refined my communication skills meaning I am sure I will be able to explain difficult concepts and topics more simply and concisely.


To help my students improve, I will use more active methods of learning such as mind mapping and discussions as I have found these to improve content knowledge and problem-solving abilities. I will also make sure to explain my reasoning every step of the way and encourage students to tackle the questions by themselves first, so they become more independent learners.

About my sessions


In our first session, I will make a note of your exam board and the topics you would like to learn, including those which you feel less comfortable with. We will then work together to come up with learning objectives for each session and see if we've achieved these after every lesson. This will help to measure progress and identify any difficult areas which may need more revision.

In our first session, I will make a note of your exam board and the topics you would like to learn, including those which you feel less comfortable with. We will then work together to come up with learning objectives for each session and see if we've achieved these after every lesson. This will help to measure progress and identify any difficult areas which may need more revision.


In the lessons, I will go through the basic concepts of the topic with you, before moving on to explain the more difficult areas, ensuring you're following me each step of the way and making this teaching as interactive and enjoyable as possible! Towards the end of each session, we will go through some exam-style questions to put what we've learnt into practice and test our understanding.


For students applying to university to study medicine, we can discuss ways to boost the strength of your personal statement, ensuring you've included all the necessary information as well as some bits and pieces which admission officers look out for. We can also look at ways to maximise your UKCAT score, including learning strategies on how to answer the questions under time pressure. Finally, over the course of a few sessions I will run through all the background knowledge you need for your interviews, such as how to answer difficult ethical questions and how to make your answers to the most common personal questions that all universities ask stand out.
