Information about Ying

I am a third year medical student at Imperial College London and am very approachable and patient when it comes to working with kids and young adults. Having only recently left school and achieved excellent results in both GCSE’s and A-levels, I know what it requires to bring the best out of a pupil, and that with hard work and the belief that you can do well, that anyone can go on to achieve their ambitions exceptional grades. Having also just entered medical school, I understand their requirements extremely well, and can assist with UKCAT (my score: 740) and BMAT (My score: 6.7, 6.5, 4A) revision as well as working on interview and the UCAS application.

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” (Benjamin Franklin)

My teaching style is based around this motto. My sessions are as interactive as possible, explaining complex ideas in inspiring and interesting ways, making it simple to understand. I believe in setting a good base on which to build upon and then tackling exam questions and focusing on exam technique. Nothing is easy and I do expect the child to work hard in order to understand certain aspects, at the same time I am not stern.

Something I certainly found extremely confidence-building was learning beyond the restrictions of the course guide so that I walked into the exam hall relaxed, knowing that I had excess knowledge, and that the examiners could throw any question at me. It will also help the child’s understanding if they do intend to carry on the subject.

Of course I would not pile on too much information if the child does feel he/she is struggling, and would work at a pace they feel is comfortable.

Most important thing though, above all else, is to have fun and enjoy what you are learning.

Availability: Weekday afternoons and evenings and Weekends.

Willing to travel: 2 miles

Experience: Having recently been recruited by keystone tutors, I have had some extra training with regards to the different approaches with different pupils. Since joining university, I assisted 8 students with their studies, all of varying levels and take pride in watching them improve over the past few months. The age group varies from doing the 11+ test all the way up to A-level sciences and maths. Having helped a couple of them with GCSE`s last year, they improved from a C to an A in their sciences and achieved A*s in Maths.

During my A-levels, I was biology and maths prefect, so every week I would run drop-in clinics for year 10 pupils to help with areas they didn`t quite understand. Having had some very influential teachers throughout secondary school, I tried to emulate them when tutoring these students. I am fully aware of how beneficial a one-to-one session can be and look to bring the best out of the pupils.

With regards to medicine, I helped an Imperial applicant with interview skills for 2 months and she received an offer for Imperial. I have read many personal statements and so can give helpful advice on things to include that universities will look out for. I was also president of Medic Society during my last year, which involved informing pupils in the younger years about the application process as well as giving them interview and UCAS preparation. They all found it incredibly useful and have all received offers from medical schools since.

5/5 Rating

V calm and patient. Not intimidating so my boys feel at ease to ask Ying to explain as many times as they need.
The boys did not want me to arrange a tutor but were far more positive when they met Ying who is not a nerdy type but a young cool guy who also enjoys sport. Very approachable. They always say the session has helped them afterwards. 👍
