Friendly and dedicated science & medical admissions tutor
Second year medical student at the University of Cambridge specialising in BMAT/UKCAT/medical admissions tuition and interview preparation
I am a friendly and enthusiastic tutor dedicated to providing excellent tuition in Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Spanish at a range of levels as well as offering assistance with medical school admissions and Oxbridge science admissions.
I recently achieved 4A*s at A-Level (2016) and am in my second year studying Medicine at the University of Cambridge, having achieved a First in my first year examinations.
Having applied for Medicine and received offers from all the medical schools I applied to in the 2015/16 admissions cycle, I have recent first-hand experience of the admissions process and therefore I am well-equipped to guide prospective medical students through the admissions process. I have previously tutored students in Oxbridge medical admissions as well as general admission to medical school.
I would be happy to offer help with the UKCAT and BMAT, having achieved high scores in both admissions tests, as well as with personal statements and preparation for interviews. I have over 40 hours of experience of one-to-one BMAT tuition and have additionally previously offered help and guidance to prospective medical students. I am also happy to provide guidance to schools or groups of students, having assisted students at a Sixth Form College with their preparation for the UKCAT and BMAT.
I am available for medical school interview preparation .I have previously provided an intensive one-to-one medical interview preparation clinic as well as a tutorial in Oxbridge medical interview preparation. In addition, I have experience of conducting mock interviews for Oxbridge and medical admissions so would be happy to offer mock interview practice.
In terms of academic subject tuition, I recently achieved a D1 (equivalent to an A** at A-Level) in Pre-U Chemistry and a D1 in Pre-U Spanish; therefore I am able to offer both highly specialised tuition for these Pre-U courses and general Chemistry & Spanish tuition at a variety of levels. In addition, I achieved an A* in A-Level Biology and an A* in A-Level Maths and would be happy to tutor either of these subjects up to A-Level standard.
My previous teaching experience includes tutoring a Year 11 student in IGCSE Chemistry for a year as well as another Year 11 student in IGCSE Spanish. I also have experience teaching younger students, as I taught Latin to two Year 4 students for 3 months, assisted with English and Maths teaching in a Year 2 class and volunteered at a primary school for children with special needs for six months. These experiences have greatly enhanced my teaching and communication skills with students of all ages and abilities.
I tailor my lessons to suit the individual student and focus particularly on exam technique and strategy in addition to ensuring a thorough knowledge of the content from the relevant syllabus.
