About me

Hi!

My name is Rikki and I am a third year medical student at Brighton & Sussex Medical School. I absolutely love the course and the constant challenge each day presents. I took a slightly unconventional route into medicine and came back to academia after a few years out in the workplace. This means my qualifications are recent, and I have been exposed to many learning styles on the path to achieving my goals.


One of the lessons I have learned along the way, is that there is a profound difference between memorising a subject, and deeply understanding it. When you work with teachers that are passionate about their subject, it comes across in everything they do, and provides you with a rich depth of knowledge. This ensures you have strong foundations on which to build upon in your chosen field.


Having gone from GCSE, all the way through to medical school applications, entrance exams, and interviews, I am very happy to help you prepare for every step in achieving your personal ambitions!

About my sessions

After experiencing different types of exams, interviews and applications, I have come to understand that true confidence is gained by being competent in your subject. It is strong foundations in your chosen subjects I wish to build with you. I believe that there are subtle differences in learning styles between all of us, and with the benefit of being surrounded by motivated, hardworking students, I have grown to enjoy and develop different ways of understanding and teaching. It is the versatility and attention that it such an enormous benefit to one-on-one tutoring.

I would like to spend a short time talking with you about where you currently are, what you find challenging, and what your ambitions are. Then we can build a plan for future progress, while fine tuning our approach along the way if we would like to cover come topics in more depth, or we find we are steaming ahead!

Questions Rikki has answered

How do you prepare for high pressure tests or interviews?

I have always believed that true confidence comes from competence. Not just memorising facts or figures, but deeply understanding your subject, and what is required of you in the examination is the truest way to feel confident and prepared. This can sometimes mean spending extra time going through areas you haven't yet mastered, and that can be tricky as without effective support it's easy to feel lost. Success always requires work, however it is possible to streamline the process and make your study time as efficient as possible so you can truly understand your subject and even begin to enjoy it. This then changes how you feel about the upcoming exam, and instead of feeling that impending sense of doom, you feel a sense of excitement about showing what you can do!I have always believed that true confidence comes from competence.
