My name is Pavandeep and I have experience mentoring students at GCSE, A-Level and University level for three years. I am currently studying Medicine (MBBS) at University College London (UCL) and have recently completed my intercalated BSc in Neuroscience.
As a kind, approachable and responsible teacher, I believe in the importance of adapting my teaching methods to suit your individual needs. After topic areas requiring more attention have been identified, a range of creative teaching methods to improve topic understanding will be used, before knowledge is consolidated using practice questions. I can also provide revision plans, study skills advice and extra examination-style questions.
Availability: I am available on weekends from September onwards.
I am happy to provide tuition at my home or to tutor online.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: For the past two years, I have tutored first year medical students in their transition from school to university as a Transition Mentor. In this role, I provide weekly group tutorials to teach topics requested by students and devise handouts, notes and examination style questions to further their learning.
As a volunteer on the UCL Next Top Doctor programme, I also mentor prospective Medicine applicants across secondary schools and colleges in London. This involves working closely with students during the academic year to support their applications to university, through conducting mock interviews and reviewing their UCAS personal statements.
My understanding of excellent academic teaching is improved through my role as a Student Quality Reviewer of Teaching. In this role, I cooperate with lecturers and professors to improve student engagement and satisfaction of university teaching. This year, I helped to develop a new Medical Sociology course and this was well-received by students, receiving a higher rate of positive feedback.
