About me

My name is Jan and I am a Medical Student at Bristol University. It is very rewarding being able to help a student progress in a subject they previously weren’t confident with and helping them achieve top grades that previously seemed out of reach. I have been teaching swimming for the past 2 years and I found that many of the teaching principles of a sport apply to academics- finding areas to improve in, recognising what went well and, most importantly, patience. I am passionate about all 3...

My name is Jan and I am a Medical Student at Bristol University. It is very rewarding being able to help a student progress in a subject they previously weren’t confident with and helping them achieve top grades that previously seemed out of reach. I have been teaching swimming for the past 2 years and I found that many of the teaching principles of a sport apply to academics- finding areas to improve in, recognising what went well and, most importantly, patience. I am passionate about all 3 of my A-level subjects, that I now tutor up to GCSE level- Biology, Maths and Chemistry. Both Biology and Chemistry relate directly to my degree and I achieved a Gold Award in the British Biology Olympiad in 2018. I also love learning and teaching mathematics, a subject that I achieved an A* in at A- level. Having studied these to a high level, I can appreciate that different subjects require different teaching and support methods, and tailor these to the student. I completed my exams recently and therefore have a good grasp of exam technique required to pass your GCSE’s.

As part of the process of applying to medicine, I had to undertake the UCAT exam in which I scored in the top percentile for the country. I can assist in UCAT preparation as well as in interview preparation and personal statement writing. 

When I am not studying, I enjoy swimming and playing football with the medical society at Bristol!

About my sessions

During our 15-minute introductory talk I will try and pinpoint what the student has a good understanding of and what areas of the subject will need some more work. In my experience, exposure to questions is the best form of learning when preparing for exams. Therefore, in my sessions we will tackle some example questions and complement them with explanations of any confusing concepts. These questions can either be brought forward by the student (from school) or provided by me. I aim to provid...

During our 15-minute introductory talk I will try and pinpoint what the student has a good understanding of and what areas of the subject will need some more work. In my experience, exposure to questions is the best form of learning when preparing for exams. Therefore, in my sessions we will tackle some example questions and complement them with explanations of any confusing concepts. These questions can either be brought forward by the student (from school) or provided by me. I aim to provide clear and concise feedback, as it can provide the student with direction as well as motivating them to continue working hard. I also find it useful to have a look at the student’s syllabus, as outlined by their exam boards, and go over the learning requirements to further pinpoint weaknesses. I am more than happy to accommodate for any other learning styles, which can also be discussed in the free session!

Repetition is vital when learning and mastering a skill, so over time we will re- visit topics the student struggled with or expressed a need to go over again.
