Hi, I`m Nicole and I am a second year Medicine undergraduate studying at Imperial College London. I am living in Hammersmith and Fulham so can tutor within a few miles` radius of this area. I attained A* in all my A-Levels consisting of Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
All AS & A2 modules for A-Level Maths were learnt within a year, enabling me to complete the whole A-Level during my AS year. I also achieved 11 A*s in my GCSE subjects which were studied at The Lady Eleanor Holles School, where I held an academic scholarship.
I am able to offer first-hand experience on preparing for Medical School admissions, particularly regarding admission tests (BMAT & UKCAT), personal statement and volunteering/work experience. I enjoy Medicine, Science and Maths and I am keen to deliver my sessions to students in order to evoke their (sometimes buried!) passion for these subjects too.
Furthermore, I enjoy teaching students and the satisfaction gained from watching them succeed in understanding a new topic which they recently had no knowledge of is like no other job!
Availability: I am available most weekday evenings and weekends.
I can offer online lessons, or am able to travel to students (provided travel costs are reimbursed).
Willing to travel: 5 miles
I tutored AS Biology to a younger student during my last year of Sixth Form, enabling her to achieve an A in her exam. I also guided my younger sister in Maths when she had problems understanding new concepts, and she has now completed her AS Maths modules one year ahead of her peers who have only just finished their GCSEs.
At present I tutor a few students, the majority of whom are studying towards their GCSEs. I have two approaches to tutoring, depending on what it is the tutee wishes to get out of it: When learning new material, I will first build a foundation for the concepts to be taught, and aim to draw links with pre-existing knowledge.
If running over old material, I will help go through any notes, reiterate key concepts and ideas, before using past paper questions to reinforce the knowledge.
