Chemistry? Biology? Maths? Med school applications? I’m the tutor for you!!
I am a medical student at Imperial College London, and I am passionate about teaching! I know how stressful it was to go through medical school applications as well as A Levels and after being at uni, I believe I have learned some tips and tricks that would have made revision much more enjoyable as well as much easier, and I’d like to pass these on. I achieved straight A*s in my iGCSEs and A*A*A in my A Levels and doing Medicine at uni has put me in a strong position to understand content in Biology and Chemistry and my previous experience tutoring will help me convey that information. Drop me a message anytime :)
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.
I was raised in the Middle East so I’m very fluent in the Arabic language.
I’m lived between the Middle East and UK, now residing in the UK. I am currently a medical student studying at King’s college london. I tutor A-level Biology, chemistry, mathematics and Arabic in my time outside of university.
Cambridge and Imperial Science grad. 15 years teaching experience.
Key Stage 2: Since 2017 I have been working as a science and maths teacher in a specialist SEND school with primary school-aged children with a wide range of learning difficulties, including ADHD, Asperger's. dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia. This has involved planning engaging and fun practical science experiments in line with the KS2 curriculum, and devising interactive maths lessons to help the students grasp basic numerical concepts . - Case study: "I", aged 9, with ADHD, dyscalculia, Asperger's. Science: "I" had a keen interest in the 'messy' side of Science, so our experiments were generally Chemistry-oriented, involving chemical reactions that invariably produced interesting substances, explosions or slime. He learned how to write up observations in his exercise book independently, and further explore the 'theory' behind our experiments. Maths: "I" struggled with counting and subitising, so we worked on counting forwards and backwards to 20, and subitising groups of 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10, using Dienes cubes and other objects. Eventually he could manage these tasks consistently and moved onto creating given monetary values using coins. Common Entrance: I have prepared numerous students for entry at 13+ at both normal and scholarship level for secondary schools including Eton, Westminster, King's College Wimbledon, Dulwich, Radley, Wetherby Senior etc, all of whom have successfully gained entry to their chosen schools. I have particular experience in the Eton King's Scholarship paper, and have coached 6 boys for this exam, 3 of whom are now current King's/ Oppidan scholars at the school/ college. - Case study: "A", Eton King's Scholarship exam. "A" was naturally very bright, but severely let down by poor exam technique, including badly structured 'long-answers' and extremely messy (often illegible) writing which prevented him achieving the high scores of which he was capable. We discovered that his handwriting deteriorated as a result of perceived time pressure, leading to him rushing his answers to the longer questions and spewing out garbage. Despite this, he invariably failed to complete a paper under timed conditions. We therefore focussed heavily on techniques for answering and structuring long answers appropriately and concisely. By understanding the proper way to answer questions, and that he could say more with less, his answers become both more legible and higher-scoring, and he was also able to complete the papers in time. He went on to earn the scholarship. GCSEs: My GCSE students have been by far my biggest cohort over the years. I am equally at home with Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths at this level, and have already taken a number of students through the first round of the new 9-1 Maths specifications. I have also home-schooled at least 7 students in these subjects (from memory!), meaning I have often had to teach the entirety of the specifications from scratch, and set and mark regular homework in addition to providing exam preparation. - Case study: "R", home-schooled, IGCSE Maths and Sciences "R" had been excluded from his school at the start of year 10 for behavioural reasons. However, he had been offered a second chance to return to his school on condition that a) he provided regular proof that he was continuing to study for his GCSEs in the form of notes etc. and b) he could achieve at least an A in his IGCSE Maths, which he was due to take the following summer, a year early. I was contacted to work on maths and the three sciences with him. We met 3 times a week, allotting equal time for each subject. "R" had either mislaid or simply not made any notes for any of his subjects, so we had to start at the very beginning, ensuring not only that he had a comprehensive set of notes on each subject, but that he was keeping them sufficiently organised that he might send copies to his school. Come the end of the year, "R" achieved an A* in maths and was offered a place to return to his original school. A-Levels/ IB: My A-Level/ IB specialism is Biology. Most years I usually take on at least 1 or 2 students at this level. Biology is notorious for being one of the most 'content-dense' A-Level/ IB topics and there is a lot of factual learning involved, combined with some complex concepts. Invariably the topics that cause students the biggest headaches are the biochemical pathways of respiration and photosynthesis. I find the best way to help students learn these is to get them to focus on the bigger picture - what is the purpose of each step, and the process as a whole? What are the important outputs? How does it all fit into the grand scheme of things? Biology becomes a lot easier to digest when the interconnectedness of all life processes is appreciated. Everything is a cog in a big living machine. - Case study: "H", OCR A-Level Biology "H" was studying Biology alongside 2 non-science A-Levels. She required two As and a B to get into her preferred course at university, and whilst she felt As were attainable in her non-science A-levels, she was struggling to meet the B grade boundary in her internal Biology tests and exams, often dropping to a D. After reviewing her mock scripts, it became clear that, besides an insufficiently deep understanding of certain topics, "H" had shortcomings in her exam technique. We initially identified the topics in which she struggled (mainly 'pathway' questions) and focussed on breaking these down and learning them inside out and back to front. We then moved onto practicing related long-answer exam questions, and establishing a consistent approach to answering them. "H" eventually became confident in tackling these topics and questions unassisted. She gained her B grade and her place on her preferred course.
Qualified English teacher & Entrance Exam Coach (7+|8+|11+)
Qualified Teacher, graded as ‘outstanding’ by the Institute of Education | Entrance Exam Coach | Education Consultant **Congratulations to my 2018 cohort who successfully gained entry to St Paul’s, Westminister, LEH, Putney and Tiffin! ** Choosing a tutor is an important decision. You want the very best for your child and the right tutor can harness their potential. Although new to this platform, I have worked with hundreds of students over the last decade. As a qualified English teacher I have an in-depth understanding of the National Curriculum. 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.
Enthusiastic tutor studying Medicine at University College London (UCL)
Hi! I am a 1st year Medical student at UCL with knowledge in tutoring Maths, Biology and Chemistry to all standard up to A-Level. I also specialize in Medical school applications including UCAT and BMAT
I’m a final year medical student at University passional about teaching!
A final year Medical student at Imperial College London (2014-2020), with an additional BSc degree in Medical Management (2018). My lifelong dream of studying Medicine became a reality the moment I joined one of the most prestigious and competitive universities in the world. This was after years of building extensive knowledge and expertise in multiple areas of study, especially Maths and Science. I have multiple interests and passions, one of which is teaching and passing on my years of knowledge to younger students! I absolutely relish in the field of teaching and communication, and thoroughly enjoy creating classes and content to help younger students in a similar position to where I was a few years ago. I attained 8A*s 4As for GCSE and A*AAA for AS/Alevel and so I have first-hand experience of the Education system in the UK and how to succeed in it. My teaching experience started at University where I conducted multiple teaching sessions through various student academic societies at the University, including Medical Education Society. I have also been an OSCE and PACES tutor to younger medical students for two years. I also participated as a volunteer for multiple medical education events at the university organised by student academic societies i.e. Mock examinations, revision days. I have over 4 years of experience in teaching University medical students. I very much enjoy teaching, and relish the opportunity to pass on knowledge to my peers to facilitate learning on a more personal level. My approach is firstly to establish an excellent level of communication and rapport between the student and myself in order to determine what teaching style best suits the student. I take a holistic approach that ensures the student's individual and unique requirements are met, whilst also creating an atmosphere of openness and clarity so that the student is comfortable to share what they want to achieve from the lessons. The lessons will be guided by the student's needs and wants, with clear learning objectives and outcomes set out for each class.
