About me

Hi there! My name is Maria and I'm a first year medical student at the University of Manchester. I am loving Medicine at Manchester as it incorporates everything that I love- fun practical and clinical skills, being able to speak to people from many different backgrounds and lots of human biology. I found both GCSE and A level exams stressful and difficult to juggle the different subjects and revision for them. In particular, A level exams were very challenging as I had to also balance ad...

Hi there! My name is Maria and I'm a first year medical student at the University of Manchester. I am loving Medicine at Manchester as it incorporates everything that I love- fun practical and clinical skills, being able to speak to people from many different backgrounds and lots of human biology. I found both GCSE and A level exams stressful and difficult to juggle the different subjects and revision for them. In particular, A level exams were very challenging as I had to also balance admission exams, personal statements and interview preparation with A levels and there was the added pressure of getting the grades to get into university. I'd love to be able to help students with this aswell and offer any advice and help them through it as I know how stressful it is! As a tutor, I will personalise and adapt my tutoring to suit each individual. I myself am a visual learner and I love teaching and learning concepts and mechanisms by drawing diagrams and images. I find the concept of active recall extremely important and I think it is important for consolidation of knowledge. However, I am quite flexible and tutor in the style that students request.

About my sessions

All of my tutoring sessions will be tailored to the individual student. At the start of the session, it is important to discuss what the student needs help with and how we are going to tackle it. I will teach and explain concepts using the whiteboard and other resources. Throughout the session, we will discuss concepts and and example questions together to check their understanding. I'll also point them to resources that I think they might find helpful. At the end, we'll summarise and...

All of my tutoring sessions will be tailored to the individual student. At the start of the session, it is important to discuss what the student needs help with and how we are going to tackle it. I will teach and explain concepts using the whiteboard and other resources. Throughout the session, we will discuss concepts and and example questions together to check their understanding. I'll also point them to resources that I think they might find helpful. At the end, we'll summarise and clarify any points and perhaps set questions for the next sessions . It is very important to listen to what the student themselves want to help them reach their goal and tackle it in a way that is suited to them. To check progress, at certain time intervals we will do a test and check for an improvement. It is important to make content interesting and make it easy to understand for everyone so that students actually want to learn and find it enjoyable.
