From my own experiences, I understand that school tuition can struggle to tap in to the different ways young people learn, which may mean that they do not reach their true potential. I adapt my teaching style depending on the individual tutee, and try and make the sessions as fun and interactive as possible. I encourage open discussion and focus on conceptual understanding of a subject above rote learning, as I feel this better prepares the tutee for further University education and work.
I currently work as a student ambassador at St George’s University (I am reading graduate entry medicine). This role has given me contact with young people who have an interest in the sciences and healthcare, and I have enjoyed being able to teach subjects that I am truly passionate about. Tutoring gives me the opportunity to do this on a one-to-one basis and allows me to develop a relationship with a student over a longer period of time, and have a more lasting impact on their education.
I have worked as a private tutor in London for the last year, specialising in A level Chemistry and Biology. Also, through my work as a student ambassador I have experience teaching young people about different aspects of healthcare, as well as clinical skills. During my A levels I volunteered in the special needs unit of a local primary school. I have also coached tennis from beginner to county standard since I was 16.
