I always ask how the student best learns their chosen subject and base my teaching on this. I like to quiz my students in order for me to be assured that they have understood the topic and are able to teach it to someone else.
I am a doctor who loves to teach. I have taught many students both before and during medical school and have always been successful in improving students grades and confidence. I always plan my teaching around how my student learns best!
I am an extremely motivated and ambitious individual who enjoys working as part of a team. I have gained a wide variety of experiences and skills, which I feel will help me immensely in adapting to new situations. These include effective communication, managing anxious or difficult people, maintaining high standards at all times and always being aware of my limitations. I look forward to working as part of an enthusiastic team and hope to achieve many new goals along the way.

Hobbies and interests
I help to run and play football matches every Thursday night, love to play tennis when the weather is suitable and try and keep fit by going to the gym 3 to 4 times a week. I love hiking and travelling the world and experiencing different environments and cultures.
Perfect! Not only is Dr Tadfi incredibly knowledgeable but he has that rare gift of also being an amazing teacher. He was always well prepared and has great attention to detail so his constructive feedback was invaluable during each session and helped me to sail through the exam. He helped me to build confidence by tapping into what I already knew and helping to develop that knowledge. I definitely think he helped me to get the best out of me during a really stressful exam period. He is also just a lovely person and made so many efforts to squeeze in lessons at times that were helpful to me. Can't thank him enough for his time and encouragement!
Excellent student with great knowledge!
