I tend to tailor the class to the individual, working out what areas need improvement, as in my own personal experience people can be put off areas they find difficult and will avoid them. By helping the student break down the problem into sizeable chunks it will make it seem more accessible. I will also assist with revision techniques for upcoming exams.
I am a postgraduate student currently studying medicine at Queen's. I have taken optional modules and have taught at both primary and secondary schools in a formal format. I therefore have experience in the field of teaching which combined with my excellent subject knowledge will be able to get any student to where they want to be.
I am currently in my second year studying medicine at Queens University Belfast. I have already completed a three-year medical science degree at the University of Exeter, having achieved a 2;1. I have also fulfilled numerous work placements; at a General practitioner’s surgery, an Accident and Emergency ward and I have volunteered at a care home for the elderly. I also completed a 10 week volunteer project in Fiji. I pursue several interests outside of formal education, including playing and coaching rugby, playing the classical guitar to grade seven standard, and I am also a keen sailor, having twice sailed across the channel. All of these experiences have moulded me into the adaptable, dependable and well-rounded individual that I am today.
Yours sincerely, Thomas Tresidder
• My most recent employment was at an award winning gastro pub. During my time at the Bell, I took on a multitude of tasks but was predominantly part of the bar staff. This was initially a challenge for me, as I had previously not been engaged in formal employment. However, I soon grasped the speed, positivity and concentration required for this role and became a valuable member of the team behind the bar. However, this placement also developed my ability to connect with people from all backgrounds. Behind the bar, there is nowhere to hide and it was important to build a rapport with customers, especially regular ones. This has massively improved my communication skills as well as my ability to engage with people as a professional.
• Aside from work, I also took the time to coach local youth teams for rugby. This involved teaching young people ranging from ages eleven to sixteen. I originally took the position as I have a passion for rugby and like to be as involved with my local club as possible. However, I soon realised the huge rewards given by sharing my passion for the game with the youth teams. Although this did take up a great deal of spare time, the experience was invaluable in terms of my leadership abilities as ensuring a group of young men stayed on task and worked cohesively as a team was no small ask. It was also relatively daunting being given such a position of trust and responsibility, as rugby is a contact sport and I had to ensure the safety of every young person under my coaching.
• In order to prepare myself for a possible future medicine-based career, I worked in a care home for over a year on a volunteer basis. The care home itself was charitably run and offered care to those that needed it most, providing subsidised medical and palliative support for vulnerable elderly people, most of whom were not compos mentis. This position gave me an insight into the effect that infirmity and mental illness has on not only the sufferer, but their immediate support network. As a care worker, I was expected to attend to the residents as well as engage with visitors. This developed my tact and sensitivity as a communicator, as for most of the residents, this would be their last home before they sadly passed away. This meant regularly liaising with family members that were constantly braced for bereavement. This sometimes gave way to tense situations, which I would be expected to handle empathetically and professionally.
• During my year off from formal education, I undertook a ten week project in the Gau island of Fiji. During this project, I helped to construct school buildings for the residents as well as be involved with the children’s learning directly. I spent a majority of my time in Fiji with the Kindergarten class, who offered me some tough but important lessons. As the children were so young, once again I was in a position of responsibility as well as fulfilling Locum Parentis. This was incredibly challenging as the children were not in an educational system as formal as the one I was used to. This meant I had to adapt to the immediate situation, balancing the children’s safety with their needs to learn, explore and play.
