About me

Hi!


I am currently studying Medicine at Imperial College London, a subject which I find fits my personality perfectly. I love helping other people out, especially when it comes to what I am interested in. Medicine allows me to achieve just that, whilst studying a subject that I am incredibly passionate about. I love learning about the intricacies of the human body, which is why am keen to tutor Biology to possible future scientists.

From my own personal experience, I know how tough school exams can be and I just want to help you perform to the best of your ability. Every student has the potential to ace each exam; it is just about the revision technique and a solid understanding of the basic concepts involved - that's what I'm here for!


The subjects I can teach should be listed on my profile page. I can also assist in the medical school admissions process (including aptitude tests), as well as with applications to the US (including ACT/SAT/Subject Tests and essay-writing), having just gone through them myself.

About my sessions

My sessions are about making the student, (you), feel as calm and ready as possible. I am incredibly patient as I understand how tough some topics can be and I want to make sure my students feel as little stress as possible; being anxious will always make you perform worse.


My sessions are structured as follows:


1) summary of topics from previous session

2) ask some practice questions

I have found that the most effective way of teaching is repetition, reiteration and practicing. The most important thing whilst tutoring is to make sure the student has understood what you have said by asking them to repeat it to you and constantly getting them to answer questions on the topic. This will allow them to think through what they have learnt and to realise what they do not remember.


From experience, I know all students have very different learning styles and preferences so I always make sure to find the method that works for the individual student.
