What type of work experience should I get if I am considering medicine? Any tips?
At Scoodle we understand that everyone learns in a different way. Some people learn through practice, using essays and notes; others prefer video lessons to watch and learn, some just need help with a specifically hard question, while some learn best 1-on-1 tutoring sessions. At Scoodle we cater for all types of learning styles and needs. From GCSE Maths video lessons to A-level English essays and specialist educators in every subject - we’ve got you covered.
A fifth year medical student with a passion for teaching and management.
I have over 7 years of tutoring experience, covering one-to-one, classroom, and lecture style teaching. I have 2 years of experience of teaching students with special needs. I take an individualised approach, and tailor my teaching style for the student, and focus on achieving their goals. I am not only successful at maintaining an already excellent level of achievement, but am experienced in taking students experiencing difficulties, and guiding them through their more challenging subjects. I also have 5 years of experience helping students in their admission to medcine and dentistry at university. I have lectured on the UKCAT to over 300 students and on medical interviews to over 600 students. I have personally helped over 50 students with their personal statements, and guided them throughout their application process. I welcome any requests to reach GCSE level maths, and medical and dental admissions. Different subjects at GCSE or A Level will be taken on a case by case basis. Due to my experience, and success, my lessons are priced at £40 per hour.
Junior doctor with 6 years tutoring experience
Throughout medical school I worked as a tutor and decided to continue after graduation. I teach maths and science from 11+ up to A levels. I can also help with medical school applications and studying for medical school exams. With 6 years and thousands of hours of tutoring experience I can guarantee a great service, tailored to each students needs. All of my students have seen increases in their overall grades, usually by two steps (B to A* for example) and each of my 11+ students have gained a place at their 1st choice of school. Outside of work I'm a keen horse rider, skiier and scuba diver! I also do volunteering work and I have also done some casual TV work. If you'd like to contact me about tutoring please feel free to drop me a message. I offer all my clients free consultations to discuss my students' goals. This helps me to plan my lessons around each of my students individual needs.

I trained at the world’s number one teacher training university, the prestigious Institute of Education in London.

Passionate and experienced in helping others get into vet school.
Just finished my 6 year veterinary degree and am looking to teach science and languages. I would be particularly open to sessions specific to applying for veterinary medicine; I have worked in the RVC's admissions department and represent them as a Student Ambassador for 6 years. This has involved interviewing students in the MMIs when they apply to vet school, going to careers fairs, speaking at schools,running open days and working at summer schools for vet students looking to apply to the RVC. I have done extensive work with the outreach team, which involved involving students from diverse backgrounds with the RVC and giving them the application help that herhaps their school was unable to provide. As such, I have extensive insight into the best methods for securing a place, whatever your background. I was offered 3 out of my 4 vet school choices: RVC, Glasgow and Liverpool and also had a Nottingham interview. I have connections at Bristol, Liverpool and Edinburgh vet schools, therefore a good insight into how they compare. I have some time off before starting a job as a vet, so was looking to put my knowledge and experience to use for a few months to help others who were in my position. My mother is french and I am naturally a linguist, therefore am as qualified to teach languages as I am to teach science/ veterinary medicine.
