I loved my experience with Study Mind. The tutors were very friendly, and I liked how they tailored the approach to my weaknesses, with regular homework and testing in between the Zoom 1-1 lessons.

      Hi, I’m Diya a third year medical student at Cardiff University. As someone who has been through the UCAT and interview process I know how daunting it can be. I am dedicated to supporting your journey to medical school in any way that I can. I would love to show you all the things that I learnt along my application process which helped me succeed. I believe in working with my students in a team as opposed to simply teaching them information that can often be very overwhelming. I assure you that together we will prepare you to show medical schools your best.

      I help my students with their interview technique and answering questions, via help with my personal notes that I made during my interview period. Sharing my interview tips to impress universities, to do and not to do advice, wales specific interview topics for students applying to Cardiff university. Help with the roles and responsibilities form as someone who secured an offer from Manchester university.

      The pressure and uncertainty of navigating through you A-levels/IB diploma as well as having to apply to universities, can be a very daunting experience. As someone who achieved top grades in psychology, french, biology and economics subjects all whilst applying to getting into my selected universities I know that I can help you achieve the same.

      My experience studying in a bilingual english and french school makes me a great tutor for french tutoring to english speaking students, as i’m able to use aspects of both languages to ensure that students see drastic improvements in their french language skills.

      As someone who received an award for the best psychology student in my graduating year, I can help you critically analyse, evaluate and learn the biological, cognitive and sociocultural case studies needed to succeed in your psychology exams.

      The medical student in me has succeeded in being able to explain concepts in biology that students often struggle with in a way that they can retain them and excel at their exams. With emphasis on practice questions, note taking, incorporating flash cards and building study routine habits that help students succeed when they start university.

      My biggest advice would be to never lose sight of your motivation study this degree as this is going to help you push through on the hardest of days and to always be your biggest supporter. Never doubt yourself, we’re all vouching for you.

      My name is Youssef, and with over 5 years of comprehensive teaching experience, I’ve developed a deep understanding of subjects ranging from biology and chemistry to physics and computer science. Specializing in various exam boards such as AQA, Edexcel, OCR, and WJEC, I ensure a tailored approach to meet the specific needs of my students.

      In biology, I delve into topics like genetics, evolution, and ecology, igniting a passion for the natural world. Chemistry sees me elucidating fundamental principles like chemical reactions, atomic structure, and organic chemistry, making the subject both engaging and relevant to daily life. I conduct experiments and elucidate chemical equations to make chemistry tangible and applicable to everyday scenarios.

      Physics, with its governing laws and principles, presents its own set of challenges. However, my comprehensive grasp of motion, forces, energy, electricity, and magnetism allows me to effectively guide my students through these complex topics. Through hands-on experiments and clear explanations, I aim to foster a deep appreciation for the laws that shape our universe. From Newton’s laws to electromagnetic phenomena, I strive to make physics both understandable and fascinating for my students.

      Moreover, in the ever-evolving field of computer science, I bring my knowledge of programming languages, algorithms, data structures, and software development to the classroom. I have assisted my students in developing their coding skills and understanding the theoretical foundations of computer science. By nurturing their curiosity and encouraging exploration, I aim to inspire the next generation of innovators in this field.

      My versatility as an educator extends to teaching English, where I enhance reading, writing, and comprehension skills, instilling critical thinking and effective communication abilities. With a solid understanding of grammar and literature, I empower students to become expressive writers and effective communicators.

      With experience teaching students of various age groups, including those with ADHD and dyslexia, I tailor my approach to each individual’s needs and interests. My sessions are not only informative but also lively and engaging, incorporating activities like going over past papers to maximize results.

      Outside of teaching, my hobbies include playing video games, listening to music, watching movies, and photography. Overall, my commitment, expertise, and adaptability as an educator shine through, as I strive to instill a love for learning and help students realize their full potential across all school levels, from primary to A-levels.

          Frequently Asked Questions

          We understand that you might have some questions before booking your first lesson. If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for in the FAQs, feel free to contact us!

          🧑‍🏫Who are the IELTS tutors?

          Our IELTS experts have themselves scored well in the exam and are extremely experienced in providing successful tutoring to prospective applicants.

          💻Where do the IELTS lessons take place?

          The best part of our IELTS lessons is that they take place in the comfort of your own home, allowing for maximum flexibility and convenience, using Zoom.

          📝How many sections are in the IELTS?

          The IELTS is a 4 part exam, testing listening, reading, writing and speaking skills in English in under 4 hours. There are 2 types: Academic and General. Both test takers will sit the same listening and speaking tests but have different reading and writing assessments. Make sure you prepare for the right test!

          🎓 How do I improve my vocabulary for the IELTS?

          If you would like to increase your confidence in vocabulary, our tutors will personalise your 1-1 IELTS tutor sessions in order to cover this skill. Our tutors have access to a bank of lessons and practice tasks to help you boost your vocabulary.

          ✨ What is a good IELTS score?

          The IELTS is scored out of 9 in each area, with a score above 6 suggesting good English competency. Some universities will have a cut-off but in general, a score above 7 will be accepted by most institutions.
          If you are looking for IELTS for work or migration, you will need to check the requirements.

          📑 How is the IELTS score calculated?

          There are four parts of the IELTS test - Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. You will receive a score for each part of the test from 1-9. An average is calculated based on the four individual results. This score is your overall band score. This will be calculated as either a whole or a half band. For example, 6.0 or 7.5.

          💻 How do I check my IELTS results online?

          The results of your paper-based or computer-based test will be available for you to see on the Test Taker Portal. The British Council will send you an email to let you know that you can access your scores online. The results will stay online for 28 days.

          ✉️ How long does it take to get my IELTS results?

          If you took a paper-based test, your results will be available online 13 days after your test date. If you have taken the computer-based test, your results will be available online 3-5 days after you test date.
          Paper copies of your test results will also be sent to your address within the same timeframes.

          ⏰How long is an IELTS exam result valid?

          This depends on the type of exam and how you plan to use, but as a general rule, the IELTS is valid for 2 years.

          There are varying circumstances (for example, if you can prove you have kept up your level of English through study or work during that time) but if your results are more than 2 years old, it is best to take the IELTS again to guarantee your score will be considered.

          🗺️I’m an international student, is that an issue?

          Not at all! We stand for diversity in higher education and are passionate about helping international students achieve entry into educational institutions in the UK.

          IELTS Tutors in London, IELTS Tutors in Australia, IELTS Tutors in Singapore, IELTS Tutors in India, IELTS Tutors in New Zealand, IELTS Tutors in Canada, IELTS Tutors in America, IELTS Tutors in Dubai, IELTS Tutors in Hong Kong, IELTS Tutors in Melbourne, IELTS Tutors in Sydney - and much more!

          ✍️How long will it take to improve my score?

          The answer is as individual as you are! Improving your score will take a mix of improving your basic language skills, exam knowledge and answering speed.

          Your IELTS tutor will be able to optimise your studying, so you make the most progress in the shortest amount of time.

          📚Why would you take an Academic IELTS exam?

          You need to take the Academic IELTS if you want to apply to university in the UK, Ireland, USA, Australia, New Zealand or other English speaking countries and courses.

          Each course will have its own requirements. Usually, the course information will tell you what band overall you need to achieve, and what minimum they will accept; for example, a medical course might ask for an overall score of 7.0, with no band below 6.5. Look at your university course information for more details, or talk to their admissions team.

          🤔Why would you take a General IELTS exam?

          The General IELTS exam is less common, but is usually used for migration to Australia, New Zealand and the UK. It is mostly used for work visas and permits.

          It is important to remember that, even if you have lived in an English speaking country before, you may still be asked to take the General IELTS by some employers in certain circumstances (for example, if you have a passport from a non-English speaking country). Talk to your prospective employer or a recruitment expert for more advice.

          🤷Which is easier, the General IELTS or Academic IELTS?

          The answer is, neither! The General is usually perceived as easier because it focuses on everyday work and social contexts, which students usually have more knowledge in!

          It is key to remember that, in most cases, you will be told which type of IELTS you need to take. Don't be tempted to take the General just because you hear it's easier! Need help on deciding which type of IELTS to take? Our team can help!

          📑How will my tutor help me to improve my IELTS score?

          All our IELTS tutors will take you through our accurate and up to date study materials, designed to help you get more exam practice and a deeper knowledge of the different question types.

          Each lesson will be personalised to you. The tutors will talk you through the parts of the exam you are struggling with, and give you helpful techniques.

          🎓I want to come to the UK to practise medicine- do I need IELTS?

          The answer is probably yes. All qualified medical staff (unless you come from and qualified in a country where English is the primary language) need to take an IELTS in order to register with the General Medical Council (GMC). You will need an acceptable IELTS score (overall 7.5 with no band less than 7.0) to book a PLAB exam.

          🌟Why is tutoring important for IELTS? Can't I self study?

          Self study is very important, and you will need to do a good amount of revision and preparation on your own to achieve a good IELTS score.

          However, IELTS writing and speaking in particular need feedback! Our tutors will be able to go through what you are producing, point out your errors and give tips to help you improve. They will also be able to more accurately score your work, so you have a better idea of what scores you are getting.
