First and foremost I believe it is important to ask students which areas they are least confident in. Do they struggle with experiments? Data analysis? Understanding concepts? Memorisation? I will then ask them the topics they struggle most with and make note of this in order to personalise and tailor the lessons to each student. I will then be able to focus the most on these topics, making effective use of their tuition time.
During lessons, I will often start by explaining theory and concepts to the students using visual aids and the online learning space. Next, I will test what they have understood and clarify weaknesses using both simple questions and then past exam questions. I will then go through the mark scheme with them and explain the answers. I will log the marks they got in the exam questions and note down any sub-topics they struggled with. In the next session, I will then ask them a few quick questions on these specific sub-topics to test that their understanding has improved before moving on to the next topic.
I am a medical student at Imperial College London. I have achieved A*A*A at A level and would love to help others to achieve high grades. When tutoring students I believe that it is important to concentrate on understanding the underlying concepts of each topic, rather than focusing on rote learning. In my experience, many students focus on rote learning at GCSE, which can cause them to struggle when it comes to A levels and university.
Medical School Admissions Tutoring:
I received 3 offers for medicine out of the 4 medical schools I applied for. Having gone through the process recently I am also offering help with BMAT and UKCAT. I will also offer sessions on comprehensive application advice including which medical schools are going to give you the best chance of being invited to interview, and advice on how to write the best personal statement. I will also be offering medical school interview preparation and practice.
