I am a unique combination as a Tutor as I have completed an Undergraduate Degree in Physics from Imperial College London and I am now completing a Graduate Entry Medicine course at Southampton University.
This means I have the experience to support across Biology, Physics or Maths at A-Level or GSCE. I will also be able to provide guidance to those who are trying to get into Medical School. I can help particularly with the UKCAT, Personal Statements and Interview Technique. I know how difficult the process for Medical School entrance can be and I would relish the opportunity to help some fellow future Doctors. Further to my academic qualifications, I have 4 years of teaching experience working for a company called RTG 11+, where I and led classes of up to 10 people at a time. My time at RTG 11+ provided me with the teaching skills required to be able to tutor some of the most complex subjects you will come across at school.
Whilst there I was also given the opportunity to author a Non-verbal reasoning textbook that is now published and on general sale. Alongside my teaching experience, I spent time within the professional corporate world as an IT Consultant and this has provided me some important skills for my role as a tutor. This includes being well-prepared for every session, detailed researcher to ensure that the subject at hand is fully covered, and time management to maximise productivity of the session. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
My view on this tutoring experience is that the sessions should be driven by the students’ requirements. I will look for the student to drive the content of the class based of what they feel is most important to cover. I encourage students to ask as many questions as possible as this is how they will be able to gain a true understanding of the subject at hand. I then utilise my prior experience to then design tailored questions during the lesson that can really test the specifics of what we have been covering in that particular class.
I believe in open communication with the student, where they provide feedback as to what technique worked best for their learning, and I use this to constantly adapt my teaching technique. Each student is unique, and the sessions will take that into account. In terms of a formal structure I will look to teach in the following way: Review material by presenting that subject matter in a detailRun through questions to test the knowledge of the student.
This will be interactive, and the student and I will work through the questions togetherRecap material where the student struggledProvide a couple of basic tasks to complete over the week to ensure the learning is complete. This last step is dependent on the parents view of this. If you believe your child doesn’t have the time during the week for an extra source of homework, then we will cover everything during the class itself.
We only take tutor applications from candidates who are studying at the UK’s leading universities. Candidates who fulfil our grade criteria then pass to the interview stage, where a member of the TiC team will personally assess them for subject knowledge, communication skills and general tutoring approach. About 1 in 10 becomes a tutor on our site.
