My name is Rob and I am a fifth-year medical student at the University of Oxford. For three years I have been the president of the Christ Church medical society, a role in which I am responsible for organising events and speakers to come to Christ Church, my college at Oxford, to augment the medical education of the students there.
Prior to this, I worked for two years as the publicity lead for the student global health think-tank Polygeia, leading advertising drives for recruiting article editors and writers, as well as publicising our annual conference in London. I am a keen rugby player, having played for both Christ Church and Oxford university, and have also enjoyed representing Christ Church for a variety of other sports. I have been a tutor for three years, giving me extensive tutoring experience in helping students of a range of ages and backgrounds achieve their full academic potential. When tutoring Sciences, there are two major aspects that need to be addressed.
Firstly, the student must have a good understanding what information is
required of them to remember and utilise. Secondly, students must be able to communicate that information to answer exam questions in a
succinct, intelligent and coherent manner. In this way, I ensure that my students are familiar with the exam board’s specification for their subject, and in each lesson will identify which part of the specification
we will be covering. In this way, my students become confident that they are learning content that is relevant for their exams. When covering content for the first time, I always try to make sure that the lessons are interactive and discussion based, much like the tutorial system at Oxford, to ensure the student is engaging fully with the material.
My lessons will be structured by allowing lots of time for the student to ask questions to help the learning process. I will also end every lesson with a useful task/question for the student to answer to help consolidate their understanding prior to the next lesson. I hope progress will become apparent, but I think regular mini tests are also important to ensure understanding and help show areas that can be improved upon. Allowing the student to go over material in their own time after the lesson I believe is key for them to develop a solid understanding of the subject.
