After graduating from the University of Birmingham with a medical degree, I have been tutoring extensively and have more than 5000 hours of tutoring experience. My interest in tutoring stems from my experience in the medical setting where we have to educate and teach colleagues and patients alike. I realised that this is my niche and is what I enjoy and where I have a natural talent.
Having been part of the interviewer panel at the University of Birmingham Medical School, I am able to offer top tips and advice on how to gain admission into medical schools both nationally and internationally.
I have a superb track record in terms of admissions to medical universities, Oxbridge and top private and grammar schools across the country. As well as being an examiner for multiple UK exam boards at GCSE and A-level, I have also won multiple tutoring accolades. There are great similarities in terms of the skills and personality required of good tutors and doctors. Examples of these include; patience, perseverance, the ability to listen and communicate effectively, honesty, integrity, confidentiality and reflective practice.
I am enthusiastic about teaching and helping others to develop and achieve their full potential. I strive for the maximum and encourage my students to do the same.
I achieved superb A-level results with above 90% passes in Maths, Chemistry, Biology and Economics with a near-perfect 100% in Biology. My GCSE results were also very impressive. I tutor and coach students of all ages and abilities.I am also experienced in SEN tutoring and have tutored students with various levels of dyslexia.
My specialist subjects and areas of expertise are; degree level Medicine; BMAT, UKCAT and GAMSAT; University personal statements and interview preparation; A-level Chemistry, Biology, Human Biology, Maths and Economics; and GCSE Maths, English, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. I also cover all the Key Stages, SATs, Common Entrance, 7+, 11+ and 13+ entrance exams for top private and grammar schools across the country.
Over the years, I have had great success in the Common Entrance exams in Maths, Science, English, Verbal and Non-Verbal reasoning which are set by the ISEB for students sitting the exams at 11 or 13 years old and who are looking to gain admission into the best selective schools in the country. I have a profound interest in education and coaching.
I have helped many students get into Medicine and Dentistry and have tutored several medical students in their pre-clinical and clinical years. I have successfully helped several candidates with their University personal statements, entrance exams (including BMAT, UKCAT, GAMSAT and the American SATs) and interview preparation (including the new MMIs). The vast majority (greater than 98%) of my students have gone on to achieve excellent exam results and have gained entrance into top schools, colleges, universities and degree courses. More than 97% of my students achieve A*/A at A-level and GCSE in the subjects I tutor them.
More than 90% of my entrance exam students have gained admission into their first choice schools, colleges and Universities, many of which are highly selective, prestigious and amongst the top in the country. More than 90% of my medical and dental applicants get into their first choice University.
My approach to teaching is focused on and tailored to meet the needs of the individual learner. Lessons are interactive, captivating, fun and rewarding. Much attention is paid to exam technique and structuring of answers as well as the theoretical content.My approach to teaching motivates and inspires students and builds their confidence. I have the unique ability of making difficult and challenging topics appear interesting, rewarding and easy.

My experience also extends to in-school teaching. I had the privilege of teaching A-level students at a local academy school for a full semester. The experience was rewarding and insightful. Within the short space of time, I was able to significantly improve the students' results and motivation levels. I also have experience of marking and examining GCSE and A-level papers for Biology, Chemistry and Maths. I am able to offer one-to-one tuition, group tuition and e-tutoring over Skype.
I have tutored many students from prestigious schools such as Merchant Taylors, Haberdashers, North London Collegiate, QE Boys, Henrietta Barnet, St Helen's, St Paul's, Colet Court, Westminster, Harrow School, St Martins, St Johns, Radlett prep, Northwood College and Watford Grammar. On the same token, I have successfully helped many students get into the finest schools and universities, including Oxford, Cambridge and Eton.
My tutoring services extend internationally as well. I have taught several students from boarding schools and have had tutoring placements abroad. I also specialise in tutoring external candidates who are going to be doing their studies and/or exams independently from their schools, for example because they may be resit candidates.
This means I am able to teach the entire syllabus on a one-to-one or small group basis and cover all aspects of exam preparation, revision, techniques and past papers. Over the last 3 years alone, I have tutored 18 A-level students in this way (10 As and 8A*s), 6 GCSE students (all A*s) and 2 university students (one got 1st and the other 2:1).
I offer a bespoke and very high quality tutoring service. My ambition is to become the finest tutor in the country. I would be happy to discuss your particular needs. My USP is simply my character, professionalism and enthusiasm for the subjects I teach and in education in general.
If you are looking for quality tuition and for someone who is really inspirational with a proven track record, then look no further as you have found the right person!
