About the lesson
I remember the application process to the Bartlett School of Architecture to be incredibly mysterious and frustrating, with the only information I could find being from old forums on The Student Room… As a current Part I undergraduate, I want to help clarify and prepare you for applying to the Bartlett as well as other architecture schools.
Our first meeting will begin by discussing your goals and setting clear objectives for the sessions. We will discuss your university choices, go through your current work/interests and any other personal commitments to develop a curriculum and schedule that best suits you. We will establish a fun and productive working environment to help you achieve the goals that you set out!
Portfolio sessions will be conducted similarly to a university-style tutorial where the student presents their work to the tutor for feedback and suggestions. The aim of these open discussions is to help develop, strengthen and curate existing work (or work from scratch) to form a portfolio with strong intellectual clarity.
These sessions will focus on tailoring personal statements for specific universities as well as interview practice.
- All Levels
I am a final year BSc Architecture student at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL. I have achieved excellent results at both IGCSE and IB and will be able to provide specific advice for international applicants based in Asia. I completed my Bartlett application whilst serving the Singaporean Army so I have personal experience with working around tight timelines.
My previous experiences in tutoring include providing 1:1 mentoring within the Bartlett as well as IGCSE, IB and ACT tutoring.
I am fluent in English and Mandarin, able to conduct lessons in both languages.
Perfect! Jim takes his time to explain what he teaches, after 1 lesson I have made significant progress.

He is friendly
Jin is a steadfast and upright individual who treated me like an adult and is always transparent when he is busy or suffees delays that affected lessons. When it comes to morals, he is almost quixotic but I tend to view that as a good thing as he always sees the best in people and for some that confidence booster is all that is needed.
His methods of teaching are all-encompassing and accommodate me the most finicky. He is fastidious and the content which he delivers is simply up to par and this is not surprising from what he's told me of his own academic achievement.
Jin is an extremely friendly individual and he'll most certainly make you feel at home, he is sometimes strangely accomodating(and prone to the occasional Freudian slip) but he is conscious that his chutzpah may be unsettling for some and is always willing to take a step back- making him a consummate professional.
That being said, Jin does not overly take to sycophants and hence it is best that you make a genuine attempt to try your best and ask questions rather than being obsequious as he will see through you and when all he wants is the very best for you this can be very disappointing. Don't be bashful with Jin as he is very willing to answer any question: with Jin no question is a stupid question.
I think I've rambled on quite enough but Jin is an eclectic individual inspiring to his juniors and a willing teacher thus I bestow with utmost confidence my recommendation that Jin will be an excellent tutor.
