MedEntry Orientation - Personal Tutoring

Getting Started

Your tutor will be allocated shortly after purchase of your package. Once your tutor has been allocated, you will receive the details of your tutor via email. Please contact your tutor to arrange your sessions.

Your package includes 10 hours of tutoring (15 hours for Diamond Plus students). You can purchase more hours if necessary. You can also contact your tutor in between sessions, if any queries arise.

The length and location of sessions is up to you and your tutor. For example, you can arrange one or two hour lessons. You can meet at any mutually convenient location (your home, your tutor’s home, a library etc).

Note: That the purpose of personal tutoring is for you to obtain guidance on aspects of UCAT that you find difficult. The aim is not for your tutor to ‘teach’ you everything. Therefore, before arranging a session with your tutor, we suggest that you work through the resources on the Online Learning Platform and identify questions, issues or concepts that you find difficult, so you can cover them in your tutoring sessions. This will enable you to gain the most from your sessions.

3 Tips for getting the most out of your tutoring sessions

1. Bookmark difficult questions and concepts

As you work through the resources on the Online Learning Platform, we suggest that you bookmark difficult questions and write down any queries you may have relating to UCAT. You can then discuss these questions during your tutoring sessions so that they are more valuable for you.

2. Arrange sessions well in advance

All tutors have excelled in UCAT and are currently studying medicine. They therefore have their own academic and social commitments. To ensure that you are able to book sessions which best suit you, please arrange your tutoring sessions well in advance. We suggest you space out your sessions on a regular basis in order to gain the most from them.

3. Provide contact details to your tutor

Your tutor will be provided with the email address and phone number that you used to register with MedEntry. At your first session, please confirm with your tutor that these details are correct. Please also consider providing an additional, alternative contact phone number and email address (for example, of a parent). This will ensure that you will be able to communicate with your tutor easily.
