On the first meeting, I hope to find out what the tutee is weak on or would like to work on. From this, I hope to test their basic knowledge of the subject material to find the depth of understanding that the tutee has. This will help both the tutee and I understand where we should focus and what topics we should target.
Throughout the course of the lessons, I will use a range of methods (oral, visual and physical) to help the tutee learn and the knowledge will be reiterated through help sheets and homework. Once a subject or module is covered, mini-tests will be done to test progress and then eventually a full exam. My main aim is to build confidence and make the student feel comfortable in what they are learning, if I achieve this much then their progress is inevitable.
I am a first year Medicine student, studying at the University of Leicester, having previously done a degree in Biological Sciences. For my undergraduate degree I specialised in Biochemistry with Genetics. The nature of my degree has given me a great deal of self-motivation, time-management and organisation skills. Upon graduating, I moved into business consultancy for two years and then decided to travel the world for a year.
I have good leadership skills developed through a range of experiences, and I can adapt well to different situations. I am a hard-worker with an eye for detail, and am enthusiastic and dedicated to teaching well. Adaptability is a core strength for me, as I realise that students require imaginative and original ways to learn and absorb information, so they can process and apply what they learn.
Medical student and ambitious biochemistry graduate with an excellent academic track record. I am highly motivated, responsible and hard-working person who thrives independently or in a team. Along with this, I have excellent communication skills developed through years of teaching.
