My teaching Methodology is first knowing what exam board the students are learning from so I can be as precise as I need to be. Then determining the students struggles in particular topics and working on improving those first. I am a very friendly person who is easy to communicate to and students will not be as afraid of being wrong or being corrected or learning as I am 18 and near their age. I can explain to them easily in multiple ways how to approach questions and understand what is being asked of.
I have just completed sixth form with an A*AA in Biology, Chemistry and Maths. I believe I would make a great tutor as I have excellent communication skills that I have developed from my work experience placements and volunteering. I volunteered at a cancer research shop for 6 months where I improved my organisation skills and communication skills. This will help me communicate with the students more effectively. I have also helped multiple year 11 and 12 students in my previous sixth form Queen Elizabeth’s Girls’ School with biology and chemistry. Including organising independence and democracy day for the younger years in year 7 to 9, where I presented multiple presentations and organised activities such as quizzes to help students understand. This has helped me understand a students’ weaknesses and strengths and create multiple ways for students to understand vital content they are tested on. During my IGCSE years I was incharge of organising a leading kisongo day where children from the local school in Tanzania came to my school(st. Constantine's international school) and were taught basic english and maths. In 2017 I attended the model united nations that helped me enhance my communication and leadership skills as well as team working abilities that would prove vital in communicating with students of various backgrounds.
I have recently completed sixth form and I am taking a gap year in order to gain some hands on experience in the medical field. I have applied for medicine in the year 2021. I believe I have excellent communication, teamwork and leadership skills along with an enthusiasm for always wanting to learn more.

Flying Medical Services,Arusha,Tanzania:
An organization set up in Arusha Tanzania to provide help to villagers who cannot afford to travel far to access healthcare. Here I learnt to give an injection under the supervision of a doctor. i learnt how to test urine samples and diabetes based on the test kit provided.

Voluneering at a cancer research shop, East Barnet Village,London:
I spent 6 months organising clothing items around the shop. I interacted with countless customers and handled the cach register.
The Radiology sector,Barnet Hospital, London:
I observed x-ray imaging, as well as seeing multiple live biopsies during the placement. I observed the extraction of lung tissue from a cancer patient and saw the injection of a pain reliver into the nerve of a patient with a spinal cord disc that was out of pace. I witnessed a contrast biopsy were iodine dye was used to help produce x-ray images that cardiologists later use to observe the functoning of the artereies and heart.
The Cardiology sector,Barnet Hospital,London:
I shadowed a heart specialist nurse and observed how she responded to patients' problems. I shadowed an echo-cardiologist and learnt how to use ultrasound to get images of the beating heart. I was shown how to identify the matrio, atrial and tricupsid valves on an echocardiogram. I learnt to identify backflow of blood as the heart beats.

Kandace is extremely helpful in explaining the key concepts covered in Biology - particularly A-level. She taught me in year 12 and I am currently studying A2 Biology. Her tips and tutoring were very useful and this has helped me succeed thus far. She has also got a deep science knowledge and generally knowledge on the core subjects.
