Hi, I'm Zoe. I'm currently studying medicine at UCL, having already graduated from the London School of Economics (LSE) with a first-class degree in Social Policy and Politics. With 5 years of university education behind me, and 3 more to come, I am excited to share my tips and strategies for learning so that students excel in their exams. I am keen on tutoring medical university students, social science university students, Biology A-level and GCSE students, and those studying Croatian. Furthermore, given that I have recently undergone the medical application process, I am equipped to mentor students through the medical school interview process, with extensive mock interview practice, as well as BMAT and UKCAT tutoring.
Regardless of the subject, I will teach students how to maximise their efficiency using what I have learnt from research on the science of memorisation and knowledge recall. This will save them time and effort in preparing for your exams.
With every new student, I will first ask about their goals and learning style, to make sure we can form a plan for our sessions that will leave them feeling confident for their exams.
I have tutored over 100 hours online. I have extensive experience tutoring undergraduates in essay-writing, both for exams and assignments, including dissertations. Essay subjects I have experience in include Social Policy, Public Health, Political Science, International Relations, and Nutrition. I also have experience tutoring students interested in applying to Medicine, preparing for interviews and entrance exams. Additionally, I have taught small groups of medical students on physiology, and tutored A-level biology. Last summer, I worked as an English teacher at an English language immersion camp for European students in Croatia.
I have a special interest in social-science essay-writing, and can offer both tutoring and remote proof-reading and editing. I have tutored undergraduate and masters students reading Politics, International Relations, Social Policy, Public Health, and Nutrition.
As a 4th year medical student, I also tutor Biology (GCSE and A-level) and Medicine as an undergraduate subject.
I have experience preparing students for medical school applications, including interviews and the BMAT and UKCAT.
Lastly, I offer tutoring on general study-techniques and revision planning in order to maximise efficiency and consolidate learning. This is all based on my research into the science of learning.
Feedback from a Sociology student: Zoe is extremely supportive, dedicated to help with my studies and has a genuine interest in my education. During our work together she allowed me to understand why I cannot achieve the marks I want on my essays, where the holes - that I was not aware of - were in my knowledge, and provided me with a set of tips on how to improve. In the lessons she strongly encourages me to practice the tips she has given me; this way she doesn’t temporarily help me solve my study problems but prepares me to be able to use the tips by myself too. She encourages me to ask questions during lessons, and she makes sure that I understand everything well, even if it takes several ways to explain. She does not get bored of explaining and goes over and beyond to assure that I understand the module (and consequently achieve my desired grades). After every lesson with Zoe I feel empowered and confident to achieve my goal! She puts an incredible amount of work into my improvement and shares my happiness when the hard work pays off. The hard work with Zoe’s support does pay off, as in just over a few months’ time she helped me to improve my BA Sociology grade from a 2.2 to a high 2.1! All because she has extensive knowledge about not only the subject, but also about how to unlock the hidden potential in people! She is extremely professional and supportive, but at the same time she is the most delightful person to learn from. I am grateful to have gotten the chance to study with her! Studying with Zoe will be the best choice you make in your whole education too!
Feedback from an undergraduate International Relations student: "Zoe is really inspiring and it motivates me to overcome my challenges. Equipped with a toolbox of methods and tips and tricks, she is putting me in a better position to master my coming exams. Also Zoe has a genuine interest for the science of learning."
