My name is Sacheth, I have completed my 4th Year of Medicine at Newcastle University and am now undertaking an intercalated MRes degree. I would be delighted to tutor anyone with a passion to study Medicine and pass on to them the knowledge I have picked up along the way!
My tutoring style is very much built around the student. I think it is important to work around any concerns the student may have and nurture them in these areas. I also hope to provide guidance to students on the elements of the application process that may not be so clear to them, as I remember how daunting this was for me when I was applying.
I had great guidance when applying, so I know how important the correct advice is when applying. With my previous expertise and the platform of Medic Mind, I am confident that I will be able to boost scores, confidence and offers for any applicant!
I am originally from Nottingham, where I went to school. My passions outside Medicine include cricket, football, music and cooking great food!
Choosing to apply for Medical School already shows ambition, so I am very excited to work with committed students to help them achieve their dream spot on a Medical degree!
My teaching style
My tutoring style is very much built around the student. I think it is important to work around any concerns the student may have and nurture them in these areas. I like to allow students to express themselves at all times, as this allows them to gain confidence in their own skills, regardless of the task.
I pay close attention to how certain tasks may students feel and hope to help them feel comfortable in doing things on their own by giving advice in terms of guidance rather than instruction. Nonetheless, if a student is feeling unsure and is searching for more clear information, I would be very happy to help.
My past experience
My previous experience involves helping students prepare for Medical School interviews and entrance tests. I have helped with applications to Universities and held interview practices, assisting students to gain confidence in communicating in a similar environment. I have also spent time with students at school, giving advice based on my experience in the medical application process. I have also taught students for their UCAT tests in the past. Furthermore, I have experience mentoring in maths at the school level – a skill I have used to transfer to other academic tutoring skills.
