Information about Alex

I am a friendly and professional fifth year medical student at Imperial college London. I have over 1500 hours tutoring experience and great reviews as you can see below!

Academic Record

I have achieved a degree in medical sciences with management with 1st class honours.

I received three offers for medicine from Imperial, UCL and St Barts. I am about to start my second year of medicine at imperial college. I have an excellent academic record with starting with 10 A-stars in my GCSE`s. I achieved I gained two A-stars in biology (scored 294UMS/300 in A2 with full marks in the A2 papers) and chemistry and two As in maths (555UMS/600) and economics at A-level (552UMS/600).. I have also achieve an A (highest grade possible) in Additional Maths.

Extra-curricular Academic Record
I won the silver award at the British Biology Olympiad and in the Cambridge Chemistry Challenge. I have received the Headmasters commendation and awards for academic endeavour every year for the past four. I also scored an exceptionally high score of 105 in the Intermediate Maths Challenge which meant I achieved a gold certificate (one of three I achieved and allowed me to progress to the next round the Hamilton Olympiad.

Being a medical student I love being able to offer guidance to prospective medical students. I can also help widen and further the interest of students in the field of medicine and biochemistry.

I scored high scores in both the BMAT and UKCAT aptitude tests and am available for tutoring and consultation in either of these. Having been through the medical school application and interview process recently I am able to consult on both applying (different universities, different courses, different requirements, how they weight different aspects of a prospective student) to medical school and medical school interviews.

Tutoring Style

I am a patient tutor and also one that is very understanding of the stress and difficulties in studying for exams and obtaining a university place.

I aim to provide a service which will allow a pupil to develop a full and wide breadth of understanding in a subject. Off-syllabus information is especially useful in writing personal statements and at university interviews. In addition by providing the student with extra information it helps them to realise how interested they are in a certain subject and if they would like to go on to study it at university.

I focus on exam technique. During my studies at school and preparation for exams I noticed -especially in the case of the sciences- that an in-depth understanding of specific subject mark schemes was required to achieve the top grades. Nowadays exam boards are very picky and specific about the wording required in an answer (science exams). Since subject specifications in the sciences are fairly limited, certain questions almost always come up.

Also available for consultation on medical school choices, applications and interviews.

Availability: Available for weekdays after 5 and at weekends all day.

Willing to travel: 15 miles

Experience: I started tutoring 3 years ago and over that time have tutored over 40 clients for over 1000 hours. I also have experience teaching children and adults with moderate to severe epilepsy at the Young Epilepsy centre in Lingfield.

I run a course with another medical student from Leeds that gives students the tools to excel in the med school interview.

Alex is a really well mannererd and courteous young man super smart but not boffin like !
I like the fact that he is young , making it easier for my 17 year old son to identify with him .
Alex is really clear on my son`s problem areas and how to address them i.e. attention to detail and losing careless marks. He`s always on time and communicates well .

Alex is tutoring my son in both Chemistry and Biology. My son says he is very good at explaining things and at getting through a lot of material in each lesson. He is reliable and personable. Would highly recommend.

Abdul (Mr)

5/5 Rating

Impressively on our first lesson Alex has identified my weaknesses in biology which I was struggling with immensely, he was quick to set out a plan to help. Due to his extensive amount of knowledge in biology and the syllabus, Alex is able to identify where marks are lost when going through past exam papers helping me learn from recurring mistakes. Alex is patient, deadly on time, very helpful and most importantly flexible. Looking for a tutor? Look no further.
