About me

Hello! My name is Samuel A. and I'm going into my fourth year of medicine at UCL having recently achieved a first class honours in medical sciences with physiology BSC. Obviously with studying medicine I am consistently going over Biology/Chemistry and so have a good knowledge for these subjects. At IGCSE I got well into the A* bracket for both and then doing the IB (international baccalaureate) I also achieved the top mark in both (a 7). I think these marks are important because it shows...

Hello! My name is Samuel A. and I'm going into my fourth year of medicine at UCL having recently achieved a first class honours in medical sciences with physiology BSC. Obviously with studying medicine I am consistently going over Biology/Chemistry and so have a good knowledge for these subjects. At IGCSE I got well into the A* bracket for both and then doing the IB (international baccalaureate) I also achieved the top mark in both (a 7). I think these marks are important because it shows I understand the syllabus and how to achieve top marks. I have previous experience of tutoring and the students I have taught previously have gone on to achieve A* at GCSE level in the sciences. At A level/IB/GCSE I do believe the most important thing is understanding the content, which is my top priority when teaching students.

I also specialise in medical preparation, with this including interview practice, advice on various parts of the application process and help with the BMAT/UKCAT. These parts are all essential for getting into medical school!

About my sessions

The structure of my lessons will be primarily based upon the syllabus. By going through the syllabus topic by topic it's easy to ensure everything is covered and that the right amount of detail is covered (it will specifically say in the syllabus how much detail they want for each topic). Whilst going through the syllabus, it's obviously important to test throughout, and so I will prepare practice questions/past paper questions for my students to do and for me to mark and provide feed...

The structure of my lessons will be primarily based upon the syllabus. By going through the syllabus topic by topic it's easy to ensure everything is covered and that the right amount of detail is covered (it will specifically say in the syllabus how much detail they want for each topic). Whilst going through the syllabus, it's obviously important to test throughout, and so I will prepare practice questions/past paper questions for my students to do and for me to mark and provide feedback on. I think doing both these things side by side is the key to success. Learning knowledge and making sure you know HOW to answer the questions. It can often be frustrating for students when they know all the knowledge but don't write down particular things that will score them marks, that's where I hopefully can come in (helping with exam technique). 

It's also important to be enthusiastic and encouraging, and I believe I am!

Sam explains theories clearly and concisely and is able to summarise units really effectively so I feel much more confident in my abilities (IB Chemistry)

Sam is incredibly helpful for IB chemistry - he is very knowledgable about both the subject content and how to answer questions in order to achieve full marks. His explanations are always very clear and easy to understand, so I feel much more comfortable with the subject than before.

Sam explained Stoichiometry to me in a simple and understandable way and showed me many useful examples so that I understood the topic even better.

Sam explained a lot of complicated concepts in a simple and understandable way. The lesson helped me to get a clearer understanding of intermolecular forces.
