About the lesson
My sessions focus on exploring strategies that my students can then apply to their personal practice, as the UCAT is a skills-based exam.
The structure of my sessions can be summarised as follows:
1) We’ll start our session by discussing where you are at currently with a subsection. What's been working for you? What hasn't? This allows me to tailor the rest of the session to your unique needs.
2) I’ll explain a few strategies relevant to the subtest. While not every strategy may work for everyone, the strategies I teach are ones that a majority of my peers and tutees have found useful. Keep in mind that learning how to effectively use a new strategy takes time and continuous application.
3) Then, we’ll work through some questions together. I’ll ask you to verbalise your thought process as you solve the question, as the method you use to reach to answer can be just as important, accuracy and timing-wise, as the answer itself.
4) At the end of each session, we’ll end with a review of what we’ve learned. At the end of each lesson, I email students notes which summarise the strategies discussed in the session, that they can reference in their own practice.
My students typically spend 3 hours on each subsection, but lesson structure is flexible. I am confident that in our sessions, I can equip you with the strategies to most effectively practice in your own time, and to solve UCAT questions in the exam.
If you are interested in furthering yourself in your UCAT preparation, please contact me. I encourage everyone to have a free 30-minute first lesson with me through Zoom, to see if my teaching philosophy aligns with your learning style!

I tutored math in high school, and have worked as both a private UCAT tutor, and a tutor for a UCAT preparation company. I have had the experience of helping 20+ students prepare for the 2021 UCAT, so am up-to-date with the current style of exam questions.
I have extensive experience in providing tutoring online; I have tutored students from Australia, New Zealand, and UK regions, as the content for the UCAT and UKCAT is the same.
I really appreciated the guidance I received from my mentors and peers when I was going through the medicine admission process. This inspired me to pass on the strategies I used in the UCAT and interviews to other students. Furthermore, I love teaching students, and supporting them on their journeys. I am passionate about teaching and find it highly rewarding. :)
Perfect! Victoria helped me get a grasp around the entire medicine entry process which allowed me to understand what is expected of me better and set more realistic goals towards myself. And all this for a free lesson which was extremely humble!
Perfect! Victoria has been a great help for me and her method of teaching worked really well in my case. In my first lesson, she wanted to know what my focus was for UCAT and tailored her lessons to achieve my goals. I specifically wanted to improve my AR as I found it difficult, and Victoria taught me a strategic way to handle this section. I received other helpful tips for the other UCAT sections as well, so I can say that Victoria wants her tutees to improve holistically as well.
Perfect! Victoria is a really thorough and articulate tutor, and her lessons are well-structured. She provides useful tips and makes the sessions feel both friendly and educational! Thanks Victoria :)
Perfect! Clear, well-structured approach to teaching each section. Very helpful when Victoria works through questions with you to dissect the correct thought process etc.
Perfect! Victoria is super organised and always explains difficult concepts in an easy to grasp way. She is always positive during lessons which enabled me to stay in a positive mindset as well.
