Hello, My Name is Robyn and I’m a Graduate Entry Medicine student at the University of Nottingham. I interviewed at 4 different universities; Nottingham, St Georges, Swansea and Ulster, securing offers from all 4 of them. My First degree was in Genetics (BSc Hons) from the University of York Followed by a graduate diploma in law from BPP University.
Prior to my current Degree, I spent 5 years working in an FTSE 100 corporate environment completing Project management Qualifications and then Joining Deloitte to work as a Management Consultant. I have a wealth of interview experience in a variety of different settings having done both corporate and Academic interviews. I was also a member of the UK army reserves taking on the role of a Combat Medic, this has given me a clinical understanding and knowledge that has benefited me during my medical degree and that I would love to pass on to others.
I have a strong academic background in science having completed A levels in all the Sciences and an AS level in maths and then pursuing a degree in genetics. While completing my degree I competed in a Genetic engineering competition hosted by MIT and received a Bronze and a Gold medal in their respective years. most recently I sat GAMSAT and UCAT. GAMSAT is the graduate entry to medicine test and contains 3 sections, English, Essay writing and Science, the minimum cutoff for entry is 50 in each section and I scored 63, 63, and 68 respectively. The Science section contains Degree level Biology, Chemistry, Physics and maths and requires High-level data interpretation.
I have experience working with children with additional needs such as Autism, ADHD and Dyslexia and would be happy to work with/tutor anyone with additional needs.
My teaching style
I like to talk to the people I work with about what learning style suits them best, I recognise that there are lots of different learning styles and not everything will suit each individual. in involved, I prefer a more interactive learning style I find Children often learn best when they feel that they are directly involved in the lesson and tend to understand information better when they use what you are teaching them to solve problems.
My past experience
I have worked as a teaching assistant for children with additional needs such as Autism, ADHD and dyslexia. I also have experience working with underachieving children to tutor them to reach their potential. in addition, thought my corporate work life I have Worked tutoring Children and young adults with interview techniques and teaching science to them.
