Research shows that if a student simply sits and listens, he or she will only retain less than 10% of the session content. Therefore I always endeavour to ensure my lessons are as engaging and interactive as possible, through:
- succinct and clear explanations of the topic covered at the start
- bringing in contextual knowledge to illustrate the background and provide exemplification
- working through lots of practice questions to consolidate knowledge and practice exam technique
- discussions about difficult questions, and asking students to explain back why they gave a certain answer
Feedback I have received to date from both students and colleagues have been really positive.
I am a current lead tutor for Imperial College's Pimlico Connections project, tutoring a group of A-Level students in a school in SW London in biology and chemistry.
I am also the Personal Statement Lead and BMAT Section 2 tutor for Operation Medical School, delivering seminars on medical school applications to prospective students.
I hold an A* in both A-level and GCSE biology, and as a medical student have a firm and in-depth grasp of the subject content, and allows me to bring lots of interesting and engaging contextual knowledge to my lessons, helping to expand on learning points and enhance the understanding of the content.
