Information about Megan
** NOW ACCEPTING NEW STUDENTS FOR SEPTEMBER 2019 **
***I AM NOW BASED IN NOTTINGHAM***
Hello and welcome to my Tutorhunt page.
I have been tutoring for the past four years- specialising in Chemistry and Biology. I currently hold a 2:1 Degree in Biochemistry from Manchester University, and I enter my 3rd year of Graduate Medicine in September 2019.
I have had experience tutoring all GCSE and A-level syllabus` for science (I limit myself to GCSE Physics only).
I have an excellent working knowledge of all A-level principles, but where I make the most impact on my students is by bringing my detailed knowledge. I find especially for students after the A* grades- syllabus knowledge is now insufficient. However, I appreciate that some students feel overwhelmed by the jump from GCSE to A-level and can find themselves falling behind. To remedy this I believe in consolidating the keystone topics of science- ones which carry through to degree level. I always hope to foster a love of science which I am incredibly enthusiastic about!
I advocate teaching students how to think and learn their topics, rather than expecting a blind rote-learning technique. I do this by including real life examples from medicine and pharmacology- always relevant in Chemistry and Biology.
Having successfully applied to two Russel Group universities for Biochemistry and now Medicine I am very capable in assisting with UCAS applications and personal statements. Together, one of my A-level students and I secured an unconditional place at University- before her exam results.
I have an A-level background in English Literature, so I am able to help students with scientific essays and their writing style; relevant for synoptic essays.
I am a relaxed and friendly teacher, I always want my students to feel confident in asking me questions and engaging in discussion with me.
Availability: As I will be studying for my medical degree my availability may be variable. I will do my best to keep days and times consistent when arranged.
I will be available evenings and weekends, and occasionally in the daytime. Please get in touch for details.
I am happy to tutor from my home if necessary, or I am able to tutor within the Medical School on the Queens Medical Centre Campus.
Fully DBS checked- please ask if you would like me to bring the certificate along.
Willing to travel: 4 miles
Experience: Over 4 years professional tutoring experience.
Successful University applications for myself and my students to competitive courses and universities.
Head Girl at my school and leader of the youth mentoring program.
Peer support mentor for Chemistry at Manchester University.
Debate Mate lead mentor for 2014, based in Manchester (public speaking and English Literature).
Youth Leader for St John`s Ambulance 2015-2016.
I achieved 81 in my final year pure Chemistry module, and firsts in all of my written work including my Dissertation. In my first set of medical school exams I achieved an average of over 80% in all components.
