My name is Alishba and I am a third year medical student at Cardiff University. 

I am a friendly and approachable person, who loves working with others. I am experienced and have been tutoring for 3 years including students with learning disabilities. I have achieved excellent GCSEs and A level results in 2017 so am up to date with the new syllabus. I am fascinated by the complex working of the human body and I found that the more I learnt, the more I wanted to know! I chose to study Medicine after a particularly insightful work experience with an anaesthetist involving a large cyst removal and emergency resuscitation.

I believe having a passion and genuine interest goes a long way when preparing for exams. However, there are some topics which just don't make sense! One-to-one tutoring is the perfect opportunity to ask any questions, no matter how silly it may seem. It can be intimidating asking teachers when in class, so being able to do so in a comfortable environment is great. This will not only help you understand a topic fully but will develop an interest to learn and get those all important exam results.

About my sessions

I will plan the session around each students individual needs.

For example, covering the basics of a particular topic. I find that not understanding a topic tends to originate from not having a firm grasp of the underlying mechanisms. Other students might have a particular question (always encouraged!) they would like to go over and I will use various diagrams, pictures and text to explain the answer. Lastly, particularly closer to exams, I will use exam style questions to brush up on e...

Lastly, particularly closer to exams, I will use exam style questions to brush up on exam technique and focus on aceing that exam. 

Throughout all this, I will set quizzes to aid revision and help students develop an effective exam technique.

Alishba has been tutoring my son Isaac (year 10) in triple Science for a few weeks now. Being a medical student, she is very knowledgeable in all three Sciences & explains things in a very straight forward/easy to remember fashion. Isaac also finds her very personable and friendly. She explained photosynthesis in the fist lesson which Isaac totally understood and will remember. Last lesson they went through the periodic table together. Alishba uses the interactive whiteboard which after one session, my son got to grips with and loves that he can be tutored in the comfort of his own surroundings. Highly recommend.

Alishba is a very good tutor and has a very good way of explaining challenging concepts. She is also very patient when you don’t understand something and takes the time to explain it in different ways until you understand.
