I am a recently qualified and practicing dentist with a strong academic background.
I achieved 10 A* at GCSE and A*A*A*A at A Level, and an A in my Dentistry-related Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). During my 2012 application cycle for Dentistry I scored 730 average in the UKCAT and received 3 offers after 3 interviews from Kings College London, Manchester and Newcastle. My interviews were varied in that some were MML (multiple mini interview) and others traditional panel-based.
All of this was self-taught with little help from my state school and no personal tutor. Therefore, I have a great understanding through the process of how I learnt and prepared for the pre-application tests and interviews, through the usage of books, and my own drive and motivation.
I enjoy having the portfolio aspect to my career as both a practicing clinician and tutor. I take a personal approach to tutoring and enjoy exploring what each tutee`s motivations and strengths are, and believe that focusing on a candidate`s unique motivation is what ultimately results in a sincere, authentic and successful application.

Experience: I am happy to tutor for medical and dental schools admissions, to assist with the whole application process, including UKCAT and interview preparation, personal statement writing, and what it takes both academically and non-academically to become a successful applicant.
