About me

Hi! I am currently a second year medical student at Cambridge university. In my spare time, I enjoy playing hockey and playing in my college orchestra. I have always enjoyed science and how it helps to explain the world around us; specifically how the human body functions and therefore how to treat medical issues through understanding the fundamentals.

Hi! I am currently a second year medical student at Cambridge university. In my spare time, I enjoy playing hockey and playing in my college orchestra. I have always enjoyed science and how it helps to explain the world around us; specifically how the human body functions and therefore how to treat medical issues through understanding the fundamentals.

Going through the medical application process has meant that i have prepared for various exam styles including BMAT, UKCAT, AQA, EDEXCEL and OCR A level boards. I have developed several different styles of revision, each of which have been beneficial for different subjects and I would be keen to find a style that works best for the student! Examples include: Flashcards for physics equations, mindmaps for biology essays and lots of past paper practice. My aim is not to teach rote learning but to develop an understanding of the topic so that it can be applied to further study.

This way we can talk through their aims and work towards it! I will monitor whether the pupil has understood the topic b...

I aim to tailor my sessions towards the individual pupil as I recognise that everyone learns differently; Whether this is just suggesting some revision techniques or going through the understanding behind concepts. Through the free meeting with the pupil, we can talk about areas that they wants to work on and then I will prepare multiple ways to teach it before the session. This way we can talk through their aims and work towards it! I will monitor whether the pupil has understood the topic by asking them to explain answers and thought processes. This also aids as an important revision technique.
