About me

I'm a 3rd year medical student at Nottingham currently doing my dissertation on some new ways of treating ovarian cancer.

I’m incredibly passionate about science because of its diversity and the impact it has on all of us, and I always aim to channel this passion into my tutoring. I have been tutoring with MyTutor for just over 2 years and love having the opportunity to guide students to achieve their potential.


My experience has helped my ability to find different and relatable ways to explain complex concepts so that they'll make sense to you and will be easier to both remember and apply in exams. However, the thing that I consider most important is building a rapport with my students. I believe it's hugely important that we find some common ground (whether that's music, movies or netflix shows!), and I aim to make my relationship with my students like that of friends as opposed to a teacher and student to give our sessions a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

About my sessions

In my experience I've found that things that students find challenging can be broken down into two broad areas - knowledge/understanding and application/exam technique. I tailor my sessions not only to your unique specification, but also to how you best learn - for example, if you're a visual learner I'll make a particular effort to use more diagrams and flow charts in our sessions. If you aren't sure what type of learner you are, that's absolutely fine and we can try a range of visual, auditory and kinaesthetic approaches to see which is perfect for you. During lessons we'll go over any theory you're unsure of until you're completely happy with it and then go through some past paper questions to start developing your exam technique and reinforce the theory material we have covered.


After lessons, I'm happy to give and mark homework to further reinforce your knowledge (although I won't force you too unless I think it's absolutely necessary!). When it gets close to exam time we'll make our main focus development of exam technique through past paper questions and re-covering any topics you'd like to go through again.


What now?

I'd love to answer any questions you might have via the contact button at the top. You can also book in a 15 minute free meeting where I'll give you a tour of the classroom, explain how I could help you and get to know you a bit!

Questions Rishil has answered

What do I put in my personal statement?

The main focus of your personal statement is to sell yourself to universities receiving thousands of applications to show them that you deserve a place in their course, whilst trying not to sound too arrogant and maintain a certain level of humility. The advice that has proven most effective to former mentees, as well as the technique I used myself in my application, has been to prove your ability through your experience. The first step is to identify exactly what qualities medical schools are looking for in prospective doctors, and therefore it naturally follows that these should be qualities you look for in a good doctor. This gives you a starting point, from which you can begin to talk about your own experiences showing these skills. Universities have so many personal statements boasting about their authors’ skills in different areas, but with no evidence of this to follow. By citing your own personal experiences that show your beginnings in forming and honing these qualities, it not only provides some evidence for the staff reading your personal statement, it also provides a solid starting point for some of the typical questions asked at interview, allowing you to form a well rounded and in depth answer that sells you as a potential medical student.The main focus of your personal statement is to sell yourself to universities receiving thousands of applications to show them that you deserve a place in their course, whilst trying not to sound too arrogant and maintain a certain level of humility.
