About Myself

I've just graduated from pre-clinical medicine at Oxford University and begun my clinical studies at UCL. During my third year I completed a BA in Medical Sciences for which I was awarded a 2.1. During school I gained 11 A*'s at GCSE and A grades at A-level in Biology, Chemistry and Maths as well as A's in AS English Literature and Thinking Skills.

Tutoring Approach

Happy to give one on one and small group tutorials. I aim to provide thorough and focused preparation for the end goal be that exams or interviews using a range of resources that have proved useful to me in the past. It is important to recognise each student is different and adapt lesson plans to their particular learning style, a collaborative process which has been very well received.

Teaching Experience

I volunteered for a year as a teaching assistant and have advised many subsequently successful applicants on their personal statements and interview preparation for medical school. I also spent two years teaching piano during my final years of school as well as working as a tutor to younger years in Biology and Chemistry AS and A-Levels. I have spoken on a number of occasions providing application advice to large groups and am currently coaching two students for their imminent UCAS submissions.

Extracurricular Interests

I am a competitive fencer, representing GB during my school years and more recently Oxford where I was awarded a Full Blue. I also enjoy music, playing the flute and piano to a high standard and am very involved in student journalism, last year editing the university science magazine's Women in Science issue. I also completed a term as Oriel College's JCR Equal Opportunities Officer, during which time I co-organised an Equalities Week promoting freedom from discrimination and prejudice. I hope to continue these interests at UCL, London provides a wealth of opportunities to get involved in exciting projects.

Unconditional offer from Oxford to study Biochemistry

Amy was an excellent tutor. She understood my weaknesses immediately and was extremely helpful in helping me strengthen these points. The tuition helped me get comfortable talking about more advanced science topics beyond the A Level syllabus. Amy was especially helpful in improving my expression and explanation of scientific concepts. She pushed me to think about topics I had not yet encountered (exactly as would happen in an interview) and stimulated me to link topics across the sciences.

3 offers for medical school

Amy provided support with my application to medical school. She was well informed and really accessible, and gave my lots of excellent advice and tips as to the application and interview process.

Ultimately, I received three offers for medical school, including a scholarship at King's College London where I presently attend.

Can't thank Amy enough!

Attained places at all my medical schools, about to start at UCL.

Applying for a subject as competitive as medicine was definitely daunting to start off. However, Amy made this a lot easier for me by guiding me through my application, and giving me advice that no teacher or independent company could give due to her first hand experiences. Her kindness, patience and persistence all helped and I am officially about to start my first year. Thank you Amy!
