I am passionate about getting to know students to maximise their full potential. I like to take the time to really get to know each student to understand how they work best, revision techniques that suit them and ways in which I can support them in the best way possible.
I'm currently studying Medicine at Cardiff University and am looking to support students with their own personal statements, interview preparation and techniques. I applied to 4 different medical schools, attended interviews with three of them and gained three offers. I would love the opportunity to share my experiences and knowledge to help other people through this process. I'm particularly interested in supporting students with interview preparation, as I felt that talking to current medical students and previous applicants was the key to my success in gaining a place at medical school.
My previous experience includes tutoring biology, chemistry and maths at both GCSE and A-level standard. My most notable achievement to date was supporting a student who failed their GCSE science (U grade) to achieve an A* in their re-take.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.

Try to keep a logbook of specific examples when on a work experience placement as this will become very useful when preparing for an interview and writing your personal statement. Remember to remove any names or identifiable characteristics of the patient to adhere to confidentiality. http://www.gmc-uk.org/guidance/ethical_guidance/confidentiality.asp
In your personal statement, talk about a few of these key examples and describe the professional's actions and reactions in the situation, how you felt during the placement and what you felt you learnt about the medical professional as a result of it. You may also want to comment on what you felt you learnt about yourself as a result of the placement. It is better to reflect on a few key examples than to cram lots of examples in with very little explanation.
"During a GP placement I saw a distressed patient who thought he had Parkinson’s disease after looking on the internet. The GP explained how anxious patients could become after self-diagnosing and I saw how challenging it is for doctors to then reassure their patients effectively."
"During a GP placement I saw a distressed patient who thought he had Parkinson’s disease after looking on the internet.” I described here what I saw during one of my placements.
“The GP explained how anxious patients could become after self-diagnosing” I commented on how the professional reacted in the situation.
“I saw how challenging it is for doctors to then reassure their patients effectively” I commented on what I learnt from the situation, and a deeper level of understanding of the demands of the career.see more
