I first became captivated by tutoring when helping my younger sister through her GCSE Chemistry exams. I was interested to find out why it seemed Chemistry in particular was a tough subject for her. It seemed it was a case of misunderstanding a few key concepts she hadn’t grasped first time round; when taught by her school teacher. Being able to offer up a different way of looking at things provided a simple fix for all problems and it turned out after just a few sessions she was back on track, and working well above her initial level. I was thrilled when she far surpassed her target grade come exam time and this really highlighted to me what a fantastic opportunity tutoring provides. Being able to work one on one with a student, tailoring the teaching to specific needs and isolating the key issues for fixing, is what I focus on most when tutoring. This not only aids the students understanding but also encourages a greater general interest in the material. Helping create a genuine passion for a subject positively impacts students far beyond any number of hours of conventional classroom teaching. I have just begun my fourth year of university education, this allows me to relate to students going through the trials and tribulations of all-important exams, I can thus form an integral bond that goes beyond the classic student-teacher relationship and harbours greater success for the tutee.
I have thoroughly enjoyed over 200 hours of tutoring experience with a range of ages and ability, and continue to develop understanding of common anxieties and issues. This helps me to build a successful relationship with tutees and ensure they enjoy, and thus get the most out of, their tutoring.

For medicine, the work experience you do isn't so much what you do but what you get from it. It's very important to reflect on what you learnt and how your outlook on things changed as a result of the work experience. Many people have links to people/places to get lots of experience but unis won't be impressed by this. They'd rather you reflected and learnt a lot from your part time work behind the bar than sat in an operating theatre for a week but achieved nothing!see more
