Hi! My name is Charutha. I am a medical student at the University of Nottingham. Medicine is a brilliant course that is challenging and fulfilling, combining science and interaction with people, requiring effective academic and communication skills. Having recently been in the position of a student doing GCSEs and then balancing A-levels, university application and various other commitments, I am in an excellent position to mentor students and give advice on university application, to help them achieve their goals and fulfil their potential to the maximum.
I am familiar with the challenges posed by subjects and university application and how these may best be overcome. With several years experience teaching students on a voluntary basis, I recognise that every student learns best in a unique way, but that learning must be active. I know the best teaching does not provide only information to memorise but facilitates understanding, inspiring the student. My qualifications and experience are up to date with the new system introduced from summer 2017, which will allow me to give you effective guidance relevant to your position.
At all levels of study, learning can be fun and engaging, but can also become a real stress when your future depends on it. Aside from helping you to develop an understanding of your subject and guiding you with university application, I can help you develop the skills of how to learn and to manage your time.
The most important aspect in learning is that a student wishes to learn. The best way to encourage learning is therefore to inspire interest- I will accomplish this by linking the subject to the student’s goals. In the first tutorial, we will start by discussing what the student would like to achieve and identifying any particular areas the student finds challenging and would like to go over. This will allow us to make a plan for how to proceed.
I will assess the student through verbal discussion during tutorials as well as the work they do during and in between tutorials. As the student progresses, we will revaluate and modify our plan. During sessions, there will be opportunity at the start for the student to go through any particular questions (i.e. from past sessions) they would like to clarify before moving onto the main focus of the session and then finishing with some exercises and an opportunity to discuss what work the student will do up to the next tutorial as well as any topics that the student would like to go over in particular in the next session.
I believe that the most significant factor for a student’s progress is that they put maximum effort into whatever task they do, because that will not only maximise improvement but also yield satisfaction for them that they have done their best and help inspire them to learn.
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.
