Information about Ishika

Hi! My name is Ishika and I`m a Medicine undergraduate at the University of Cambridge. I`m offering help with GCSE and A-level Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Physics. I`m also willing to offer help with Medicine UCAS applications (i.e. entrance exams, personal statements and interview prep). I have prior experience in both GCSE and A-level science and maths tutoring, tutoring for BMAT/UCAT entrance exam preparation, personal statement checks in a range of subjects and interview preparation for Medicine applications.

I achieved A*A*A*A* in Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Physics (originally predicted 5 A*s before dropping Further Maths). I studied at the Henrietta Barnett School from Year 7 - 13.

I achieved 2900, band 1 in my UCAT and 13.6 in my BMAT; I received offers from Cambridge, Imperial and UCL for Medicine, and had an interview from Kings.

I take a logical approach to teaching - I ensure the fundamental knowledge is stable before building upon these concepts and teaching advanced topics. I use PowerPoint slides, interactive whiteboards and quick quizzes to interact with the student. This ensures the student is kept engaged and the knowledge is retained. I also use past paper questions and mark schemes, as they are vital to success at GCSE and A-levels. However, I am a versatile tutor and adjust my teaching style to each individual student.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I have previously tutored numerous students from top grammar schools in the UK, including the Henrietta Barnett School, Queen Elizabeth`s Grammar School and Sutton Grammar School. Previous tutoring experience I have includes:
- GCSE Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Physics tutoring
- A-level Biology, Chemistry and Maths tutoring
- Running a revision crash course for GCSE chemistry students
- 11+ tutoring
- Checking and giving feedback on numerous personal statements for UCAS applications in multiple subjects, and these students received multiple interviews
- Running UCAT/BMAT advice sessions, and tutoring to help with preparation for these exams, with students achieving over 3100
- Running mock Medicine interviews and helping with preparation for interviews

Eun (Miss)

3/5 Rating

Very kind and helpful, walks through general information and tips for the UCAT. However, tips and info were too basic, you can find and learn about them just about anywhere on the Internet. Walks through questions you don`t understand very well, so I recommend if you have general questions. I personally needed more strategies for saving time and how to approach different question styles, which Ishika didn`t really do except walk through a few questions. Didn`t feel like I was learning or improving much, but overall if you`re set with tactics and manage your time very well and are looking for someone to fine-tune your knowledge and help with difficult questions, this tutor is probably better for you.
