Information about Mike
BIOLOGY and UKCAT TUTORING! 2nd year medical student at King`s College London with over 400 hours of tutoring experience, and a passionate and motivational teaching style. I have tutored 15 students weekly throughout summer. After assessing the student`s grasp of the topics taught in school, I reinforce the teachers ideas. Once the material has been covered, I guide the student through designing a broad summary/mindmap to keep visually in their memory. I prefer to let the student discover their mistakes during the process of explaining what they understand to me before correcting them, as this helps self-development and critical thinking.
For topics that the student struggles with, I will find resources which may go about the information in another way more clearly than they were originally taught. I will also bring questions and interactive diagram labelling quizzes for the next session.
I have tutored 11 students for UKCAT and the majority have achieved an interview-level score. My UKCAT score average was 710. I attended classes which gave tips on how to achieve higher scores and have various techniques of my own to save time and get through seemingly tricky questions. These skills will be taught to the student and notes made to revise from.
I build a rapport with students easily and quickly, helping them to achieve their full potential. Online tutoring only during this pandemic.

Experience: I have tutored 15 students (3 biology, 1 maths, 11 UKCAT). I have previously increased two of my ex-tutees grades substantially from predicted GCSE grades, going from C (both) to A and A* in mathematics, and from D to A and B to A* in biology respectively. Taught a student for 3 months in the UKCAT boosting her average score from 580 to 705 and another student from 580 to 660 in one two-hour session only! Scored very competitively (within the top 10%) for my medicine application and have various techniques to improve grades.

Mike is a wonderful tutor - we feel so fortunate to have received his help and advice. He is extremely knowledgable and provided my daughter with amazing top tips. The proof is in the pudding though.

Helpful tutor with some very useful tips for tackling the UCAT, although there did seem to be some technical issues when starting the online meeting and when trying to book the lessons online prior to this.
Tutors Response :
Thanks for the feedback! For the first session I start the lesson time once all connections are up and working so no time is lost. I have contacted Tutorhunt to fix the issue with bookings as they kept removing and changing timings automatically. Best of luck with your exam!
He helps you learn and it is interesting. The explanations are clear and the questions are hard so you can develop your skills better. It is a fun experience and you should try it.
