Hi, Im Shuning - a first-year dental student at Kings.
Having completed my own A-Levels recently, I feel as though I am well equipped to help students with theirs by using my own personal experiences of the curriculum and techniques that helped me secure 3 A*s at A-Levels.
My teaching approach includes plenty of customised practice questions and quizzes, spaced repetition and easily understood explanations which help students grasp and retain the harder concepts in their subjects, as well as a lesson plan that is flexibly tailored to the student`s needs.
With over two years of tutoring experience, I have had experience teaching both as a private tutor for 11+ to GCSEs and as a subject champion at my school, leading A-Level Chemistry and Biology tutorials in order to help my fellow classmates and younger years.
During my sessions, I generally like to mix explanations with practice questions in addition to revisiting older topics - ensuring my students don`t forget previously visited topics. This helps to boost memory and understanding in the long run, making last-minute cramming a thing of the past. I believe that plenty of exam practice and low-stress quizzes help to prep students for their real exams, putting them in an exam-ready mindset from early on.
I am also available for personal statement, UCAT and dental admissions advice, having myself received all four offers for Dentistry from Kings, Birmingham, Bristol and Sheffield and a UCAT score of 3380 placing me well into the top 1% of the 2019 cohort.
Further qualifications include:
UCAT - 3380 Top 1% of results in 2019
GCSEs (first year to undertake new 9-1 GCSEs in only English and Maths):
3 9s in English Literature, English Language and Maths
7 A*s - including Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mandarin
2As at GCSEs

Hope to hear from you soon!
