Information about Maxwell
Hi! My name is Max and I am a medical student & biomedical sciences graduate. I offer Biology lessons up to GCSE level, Anatomy/Physiology teaching to university level as well as personal statement/UKCAT/medicine interview help.
I teach biology topics across the GCSE syllabus including cell biology, microscopy, enzymes, human anatomy and physiology, plant biology, immunology and infection, homeostasis, genetics, evolution and ecology. This can be from the official GCSE syllabus, earlier levels of education, other schoolwork/homework or higher education anatomy/physiology.
I like to arrange an initial discussion before the first session on what my student feels is the best way to facilitate their learning and which topics they would like to cover in particular, since I believe teaching methods should be based on the individual.
I base the lesson plan upon what the student feels they need to focus on the most and organise it based upon their curriculum and exam board specifications. I am more than happy to put in as much effort as is needed so I can prepare notes, flash cards, mind maps or presentations depending on what works best for each student.
I also help A level and undergraduate students applying to medicine/biomedical sciences in writing their personal statements/preparing for UKCAT, since I know very well how tricky these can be!
I offer lessons in and around central London and online tuition for other regions.

Experience: I am a second year medical student at Kings College London with a BSc in biomedical sciences from the University of Manchester. I achieved a 2.1 in my undergraduate degree and have so far received top marks in my first year of medicine. I have been passionate about my subjects since I was young but I am especially keen about human anatomy and physiology, immunology and cell biology. I achieved As in Biology and Chemistry for A Level and A*s for Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Physics for GCSE.
I have worked for high profile international medical journal, BJU International for 4 years as well as various service jobs and hospices, which have honed my communication and interpersonal skills.
Teaching is an integral part of training to be a doctor and something that I have always been interested in so I love opportunities to teach these fascinating subjects.
