My teaching method is to start at wherever my pupil is and make progress from there. I get to their level and focus on the core concepts, working our way up gradually with increasingly difficult worked examples. I am patient, communicative and very approachable.
I am a 5th year medical student and soon to be junior doctor, currently studying at UCL. I have tutored dozens of students in both professional and informal capacities, many achieving top A* grades in all subjects taught. My experience getting top marks (including 100% UMS in Maths and Physics) puts me in prime position to tutor others.

Previous paid jobs:
Minerva Tutors (2014-2015) – I have previously worked on a weekly basis as a tutor, teaching curriculum, GCSE and A Level subjects to 12-18 year olds, though mainly I taught A Level Physics. Clients recommended me to others and I built a reputation as a patient, communicative tutor with an ability to meet my clients at whatever level they present. I am competent at structuring and delivering an education session.
EF (May to August 2016) –I worked as an activity leader for the language school EF (Education First). I was entirely responsible for a group of 35 13-18 year olds visiting Hastings for 2 to 4 weeks at a time. Responsibilities included organizing, planning and leading a full schedule of activities, games, sports, field trips and excursions. Managers at this job repeatedly complimented me on the atmosphere of ease and joy I bring when interacting with the kids, and I built a rapport with them very naturally. Particularly, I went above and beyond to organize activities not expected of me, such as hikes and sky lantern release.
Co-op food (2014-2015)
I worked at the local Co-op food store as a retail assistant. My duties included serving customers at the till, stocking shelves, organizing stock at the back and answering general enquiries at the store.
UCL University Open Day Helper – 4 days each summer of 2016, 2017, 2018.
Previous unpaid (voluntary) jobs:
I have tutored a number of students on an informal bases throughout my time in education. In particular, I tutored a struggling pupil who eventually achieved an A in their AS Physics (AQA).
Further, I tutored Edexcel GCSE Mathematics to a 15 year old whilst I was at secondary
school. She went on to achieve an A* in the exam after being predicted a B by
Spectrum Autistic Charity (2014-2017) I was paired with an autistic 12 year old child who I saw weekly. We did a whole range of different activities, and was deeply rewarding for the both of us. There were significant communication barriers because of his condition, which I took joy in helping overcome.
UCLH Fun Team – I and fellow medical students went to volunteer on cancer wards, having fun with the younger kids and chatting to the older ones.
Open Minds- I have delivered many presentations and education sessions through playing a role in the charity 'Open Minds', where I go into local schools and teach classes to the children on topics related to mental health.
Dementia Care Home (10 months) – I have previously volunteered weekly in a care home for the elderly. Here, my job was to chat to the residents and participate in activities with them which I thoroughly enjoyed. I regularly received comments from the residents and staff regarding my personable nature and was always willing to stop and have a chat about all manner of subjects. I really do consider myself a 'people' person!
Conquest Hospital Ward Helper (10 months) I volunteered as a Ward Helper at the Conquest Hospital weekly. Here my job was to greet visitors and relatives arriving at the hospital, and help them with any problems or queries they had. In this role I demonstrated my down to earth, hardworking attitude. Patients and visitors appreciated my simplicity and practical nature.
Hobbies and Interests:
I am now in the 5th year of my 6 year medical degree, and be working as a junior doctor soon. In my free time I am a keen rock climber, hiker, cyclist and pianist and I enjoy taking my dogs on long walks in the surrounding countryside.
