I'm currently an undergraduate student and will give lessons at any level up to university level. I know that everyone has a different way of learning and studying so after getting to know you I would have a better idea of how to approach your learning. I'm happy to put in as much effort as needed so before each session I can make notes if that would help, or a presentation or even just a mind map, based off what would be best for you. And I'm happy to go at whatever pace is best for you. I'm super friendly so the sessions wouldn't be too stressful, I like to keep a light and positive atmosphere so that you learn best.
Hi! I'm a 20 year old medical student at King's College London. I grew up in Manchester then moved to Dubai when I was 10. Although I have not tutored anyone in this kind of capacity, when in Sixth Form I was a mentor for new Year 7 students and started revision clubs for GCSE students close to exam times. Being a medical student I have a strong foundation in biology (it was always my favourite subject) and can always help if you want to go beyond what the syllabus expects. I got an A* in Biology at both GCSE and A Level you can be assured that you'll be in good hands.
If travelling out of zone 1 there will be a travel cost of £8 per session. No cancellation fee if cancelled more then 24 hours before the lesson but if it's within 24 hours then a cancellation fee of £4.
I am a 20-year-old girl and am in my second year of studying Medicine at King’s College London. My secondary education was done in Dubai where I completed my GCSEs and A Levels. I have lived in Manchester, then Dubai and now London so have been exposed to a lot of diversity throughout my life and I feel that this has shaped me as a person.
Raising Awareness for Juvenile Arthritis Every October from 2010 to 2017
I have volunteered at events held by the Emirates Arthritis Foundation that raise awareness for Juvenile Arthritis.
A lot of the time this has included taking care of and entertaining children who have this condition.
Volunteering at World Arthritis Day Every October from 2010 to 2017
This involved organising and carrying out events alongside other volunteers from the Emirates Arthritis Foundation to raise awareness and money for drugs for conditions like rheumatoid arthritis.
Usually rheumatologists held talks for patients, providing information that could be helpful, and we set up the talks, fixed any problems and accommodated for the patients.
Duke of Edinburgh Bronze and Silver January/ February 2014/5
I completed the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze and Siler Awards, which involved trekking in the desert for 2 days and 1 night for Bronze, and 3 days and 2 nights for Silver.
Humans of DC – School Newspaper September 2015 – May 2016
I used to take photos for the Humans of DC segment of my high school newspaper.
This involved interacting with many students that I would never have had an opportunity to talk to and understanding how different people’s experiences are despite being in the same environment.
Charity Committee September 2015 – June 2017
I was part of my school’s charity committee where we held fundraisers for the various charities that the school supports.
This involved working well with the other members and making quick decisions whenever a problem occurred to ensure the events were still successful.
Computer Class for Young Adults with Down Syndrome November 2015 – September 2016
I have volunteered at a computer class where I have been teaching young adults with Down syndrome basic computer skills like typing, using a mouse, making presentations and movies etc.
I have enhanced my communication skills as a result of this work and also learnt the importance of trust when working with others. I found that building trust with the person I was working with was essential in getting him to cooperate and feel comfortable in the doing the tasks that were set, especially during times where he was reluctant to engage in the activities.
Dubai College Animal Committee December 2015 – May 2016
I was part of my school’s animal committee where we took care of the animals in our school (tortoises, iguanas, parrots and hedgehogs).
We primarily fed them and ensured that they were comfortable. This took a lot of organisation (scheduling who was responsible at which times) and helped me hone my intuitive skills when trying to decide when adjustments to feeding plans etc. were needed.
Work Shadowing at Royal Preston Hospital July – August 2016
& Halliwell GP Surgery, Bolton
I shadowed junior doctors for 2 weeks in various wards, such as the renal ward, the gastroenterology ward etc. and in a GP surgery, in the process learning what life is like as a junior doctor, the challenges this career presents and the importance of the healthcare system. I was also exposed to problems that I had not previously considered such as patient transport and legal issues to name a few.
Volunteering at Spastics Society of Karnataka, Bengaluru, India August 2016
I assisted teachers at a school for mentally and physically disabled children in India. This involved helping them with worksheets, aiding them in transport and developing my communication skills due to the language barrier.
Volunteering at Senses Residential Centre Dubai October – December 2017
I helped the teachers and caretakers educate and look after the mentally and physically disabled children at this residential centre. I was also involved in playing with them during break times and parties and ensuring their safety throughout.
This experience helped me enhance my communication skills as many of the children were not able to talk and I was also exposed to the many different elements that are involved in taking care of another.
AHA Heartsaver First Aid and CPR AED Course November 2017
I have completed a First Aid Course and am now a certified CPR provider. I have learnt many essential actions for providing first aid and feel confident in helping anyone in need.
GCSE 2013 - 2015
I obtained 4 A*s and 7 As in my 11 GCSEs completed at Dubai College.
A Level 2015 - 2018
I obtained A*s in Biology and Chemistry and As in Maths and my Extended Project Qualification at A Level, also completed at Dubai College.
I am very good with children as a result of my volunteer work and vast experience with a variety of kids. I have been exposed to so many different cultures and traditions as a result of the different areas I have lived in, the different places I have visited and the diversity within my own family as well. Because of this I feel that I am better able to connect with people no matter what their background and I generally have very positive relations with whoever I meet. I am also very people friendly as, during my volunteer work and activities, I have always been surrounded by others. Therefore, I have learnt that I thoroughly enjoy being around people and working and interacting with others. Because of my experiences I am compassionate and can bond quickly with others, allowing me to have an encouraging friendship when working together. My experiences have also led me to realise that I like helping others and am now practiced in aiding people and ensuring that they are happy. It is for this reason that I am interested in the medical profession and will enter the field in the future. My communication skills have been refined and exercised over the past few years, ensuring that they are more than satisfactory when needed. I am good when teamwork is involved as my participation in a number of committees and teams has allowed me to understand the necessity and value of others in any given task. As well as this I am a good leader as, many times, I have assumed leadership roles in order to ensure that a task has been carried out effectively whilst organising various events. I know the importance of delegating tasks because of my experience in teamwork and believe that this contributes to my leadership skills. Due to these experiences of working in a team I know the importance of organisation in the efficiency of any group. My time at Halliwell GP Surgery was mostly spent organising medical records and helping the receptionists and thus I was able to enhance my organisation skills. I can speak Hindi/Urdu as my second language and due to studying French for the last 8 years I am able to participate in some conversations in French.
Hobbies and Interests:
I have always enjoyed reading books and, as a result of this, have taken up writing in my free time. I have completed some short stories that I wrote while taking part in an online class that really exposed me to different techniques of writing. I have been playing the piano since I was three, recreationally at first and over the last few years I have begun to complete examination grades. I have now completed Grade 6 with merit. When I feel overly stressed or worked out I like to take some time to bake as I find that the methodical nature of the activity allows me to destress and relax. I am interested in new medical advancements and therapies that are being developed which I was able to really delve into during my Extended Project Qualification, where I explored the relationship between music and pain perception. Through this I was able to intertwine my love of music with my passion in the medical field.
