My Passion & How I Inspire

I find tutoring really rewarding, and especially enjoy preparing students for medical school interview, as it is helping them pursue a great career potentially for the rest of their lives! Having taught students with a range of abilities and backgrounds, I completely understand the need to be a flexible, using different methods of teaching whilst always trying to challenge the pupil, and above all make sure they're enjoying learning.

Through my own medical school application and prior tutoring, I have broken down interview preparation into six key areas. In line with the student’s weakness and what they’d like to cover, I typically focus each tutorial on one of these areas. For example, a tutorial may start with teaching and discussion of the four pillars of medical ethics, followed by practicing using this knowledge to succinctly answer interview questions.

My Experience

Last summer I delivered a two-day intensive course to 8 students which covered the full medical school application process. Topics covered included:

- How to select the perfect combination of medical schools

- How to write your personal statement

- Preparation for UKCAT and BMAT

- Interview techniques and question bank

- Problem solving questions and ethical scenarios

Students were applying for both undergraduate and graduate-entry courses, as well as Oxbridge.

For the past two summers I have also worked as a tutor in medicine and medical school applications for an Oxford. This was geared towards giving prospective students a taste of life at university, with a focus on Oxbridge style tutorials, and supporting their application.

GCSE Maths

During my undergraduate degree I tutored three students in GCSE mathematics.


I worked for an NGO in Guatemala for 3 months, teaching health and nutrition lessons to classes of children aged 8-15.

Oxford University

In weekly tutorials throughout for four years I picked up excellent skills in 1-1 tutoring and teaching difficult concepts in an easy to digest way.
