Ciao. I'm a 4th Year Medical student, after graduating first-class from Imperial College in Biomedical Engineering, I have moved to UCL to finish my medical degree. My niche is in neuroscience, I won the annual national competition in neuroanatomy (NUNC) in February and I'm working part-time with an MIT-affiliated lab at the Imperial College, developing a cutting-edge technique to electrically stimulate the brain in order to combat diseases such as Parkinson's. I have also worked as a researcher at Bristol University's Biochemistry department, Cambridge University's department of Genetics and was awarded an International Scholarship to do research in the department of Neuro-Inflammation at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland). In my spare time, you'll usually find me debugging code in Swift (or at least struggling to!) or playing tennis.
1. Get to know the student. I'd like to find out about their motivations as well as strengths and weaknesses. I need to understand my students' thought process in order to figure out why they're struggling to understand something.
2. Use neuroscience principles to explain to the student how humans learn. There are different strategies for learning different information. I believe these principles I'm equipping my students with will remain useful for the rest of their life.
3. A compromising contract between strict and relaxed is what works best between me and my students. Assignment for the following lesson is only set if agreed by the student. Once set, the work needs to be completed on time, otherwise we cannot make progress.
4. Communication is key. There are 3 parties in tutoring. Parents, student and Tutor. I believe we need to make our expectations for each other realistic and clear so that we can follow them wholeheartedly, without strife.
5. Keep parents up to date with the bigger picture (e.g. how the syllabus works, etc...)
6. Diagnose the problem, then use analogies to explain the solution.
I have been a tutor for the past 3 years, teaching a variety of students different subjects. My hybrid background in Engineering with Medicine is quite unique, and it allows me to be versatile in what I can teach and the depth I can cover. It also allows me to empathise with different kinds of students. My goal is to be able to provide students with a holistic knowledge set.
Rates include travel cost/time as well as preparation time. I will usually prepare practise questions and browse the internet for interesting questions.
