There can be no blanket teaching approach. Each student is unique, and as such requires slightly different teaching styles. However, some things will stay constant with all tutees; each lesson shall be thoroughly prepared for and will focus on achieving the goals of that individual. Evidence-based concepts such as spaced repetition and active recall will play a large part in the tuition experience. I shall also set small and achievable goals for the student to keep them on the right track. Fundamentally, tuition is about helping people fulfil their potential, and I thoroughly believe that with targeted teaching, every student can do so.
I'm an enthusiastic and warm medical student at the University of Sheffield who is passionate about helping pupils achieve their potential. Having recently sat both A-Levels (in which I achieved Chemistry, Biology and Maths A*s) and GCSEs (in which I receive 10A*s and an A* with distinction) I have current knowledge in what it takes to achieve the grades you desire. I hope to transfer my enthusiasm to my tutees, so that studying can stop being a chore and they can achieve their goals.
I am a first-year medical student with experience working as a tutor, and leading and working in teams in many different environments. I would enjoy using my communication and teamwork skills to work as a member of the bank staff.
University of Sheffield (2019-present)
Leicester Grammar School (2012-2019)
A-levels: biology (A*) chemistry (A*) and mathematics (A*).
GCSEs: biology (A*), chemistry (A*), English language (A*), English literature (A*), French (A*), further mathematics (A*), geography(A*), Latin (A*), mathematics (A*) and physics (A*).
I have tutored to students of a variety of abilities over the last few years. Helping friends with homework had always been something that I’d enjoyed and so starting to tutor in a formal capacity was a natural progression; it is something I find thoroughly rewarding and all my students to date have achieved at least their target grade.
Student support mentor (2018-2019):
This involved mentoring a struggling student to aid them in their development. Listening to the student and building a rapport were vital in order to help them overcome the issues they were facing, and I felt these skills improved dramatically whilst in this role.
Nursing home (2016&2018):
During my time volunteering in a nursing home, I felt my teamwork skills improve as I saw first-hand the value of having a team all pulling towards the same goal. I also spent a lot of time chatting with the residents of the nursing home, and this helped to improve my communication, particularly with adults.
