Hi, I am a third year medical student and I love my subject because it takes biology, which I find so interesting, and applies it to improving people's lives. I have always been interested in science, but I have also always read widely, and I took english literature A level along with biology and chemistry. 

I achieved a bronze medal in the RSB Biology Olympiad, as well as an A* and A at GCSE and A level, demonstrating my passion and extensive knowledge of Biology. Furthermore, I achieved full marks in my English language coursework at GCSE and english literature coursework at A level, which I believe shows how meticulous I am when it comes to written work; I will show the same care with my students' essays and coursework.

Through my tutorials, I will endeavour to increase your confidence in the subject and my calm and patient approach will help ease any stress or worries you may have.

Furthermore, I have a wealth of knowledge and experience regarding medical school applications, having had three interviews myself (plus lots of practice!) as well as writing my personal statement and sitting the UKCAT. I also have interview coaching experience as I give sixth form students interview advice through Birmingham Widening Access to medicine society.

About my sessions

I will prepare for my tutorials by making sure I am aware of the exam board specifications at the level that the student needs. Furthermore, for English lessons, I will ensure I have read the required texts/poems and have a thorough understanding of them.

I will begin by asking some questions to gauge how much the student knows already, so I have an idea of their current understanding. I will try and ask questions throughout the session...

I will prepare for my tutorials by making sure I am aware of the exam board specifications at the level that the student needs. Furthermore, for English lessons, I will ensure I have read the required texts/poems and have a thorough understanding of them.

I will begin by asking some questions to gauge how much the student knows already, so I have an idea of their current understanding. I will try and ask questions throughout the session so that it is interactive and I will repeat key phrases as I found that really helped me remember information during my studies. Also, I think doing past paper questions is key for GCSEs and A levels so I will encourage my student to do these and we can go through them together.

I have found through my university studies that diagrams are extremely useful in understanding concepts, so I will incorporate them into my tutorials and encourage students to use them.

I think motivation is the most important thing to encourage learning; I believe I can inspire motivation through my patient, clear and fun tutorials.
