In addition, we have experience helping students gain admission to some of the most competitive institutions in the English-speaking world, and are well prepared to offer students expert help with university applications.
our tuition philosophy
Having been both students and teacher ourselves, we at Oxmedica understand that at school it can be difficult for every pupil’s needs to be met. In a classroom setting students may be too anxious to ask questions in front of peers; teachers may not have enough time to focus on the basics, leaving students with a poor foundation from which to build. Conversely, some students grasp concepts much more quickly than others, and actually require more difficult material. Oxmedica can help by providing tuition that is tailored to the student.
Secondary school is a critical time in the life of a student, which hugely influences the remainder of his or her life. At these moments, children and young adults can use the support of experts, who have recently gone through the same experience, and can identify and adapt to their particular needs. At Oxmedica we know that different students learn best via different methods. Some students, for example, learn most easily through visuals, while others are more verbal learners. Our approach to tutoring takes this fully into account, and our tutors have been trained to adapt their teaching method to what works best for each student’s particular profile.
One-on-one tuition allows for a maximal interactivity. Our teaching style gives students a chance to work dynamically on the subject matter; they can “learn by doing” much more than they can in a multi-student classroom. Dynamic tutoring sessions make for learning that feels a lot less like “work,” which in turn makes for hugely motivated and engaged students. We make students want to learn, which means they learn much more and much more effectively. For this reason, our students go far.
OUR TUITION METHODS
From experience we have found that students have a poor understanding of what is likely going to be tested in exams. Oxmedica designs its Tutition Plans individually for the student’s examination specification. Plans are designed by tutors under the supervision and guidance of Oxmedica Managing Partner and Director of Pedagogy Dr Lin Li, and Tutoring Lead Dr Zeeshaan Arshad.
Examination-oriented Tuition Plans ensure students learn the correct content in the correct amount of detail. Our tuition makes use of past exam questions from the first lesson to ensure students learn how to apply the knowledge they acquire in examination conditions. Our tutors know which aspects of the curriculum are most likely to appear on examinations, and these aspects are particularly emphasised in Tuition plans.
While examinations are unquestionable important, they are not everything. Our goal at Oxmedica is to teach students the fundamentals of how to learn, fundamentals that will serve them throughout their lives as they confront new challenges and opportunities. Tuition always begins with an assessment of a student’s ability, together with his or her approach to learning and study methods. Tutors will help students to explore a diversity of different methods as the tuition relationship deepens. Although we support any study methods students have already developed, we encourage students to explore alternatives that may make studying more effective and/or efficient.
how it works
Our remote tuition takes place on the TalentLMS Learning Management System, an award-winning teaching platform containing a wealth of digital resources for maximising interactivity between tutor and student.
The process is the following:
1. Schedule a free consultation with one of our Management Team. They will assess your needs, begin preparing your personalised Tuition Plan, and match you up with the tutor who best serves your current level and your goals. Consultations may be attended by students, by parents, or by students and parents together.
The consultation comes with no obligation to purchase private tuition services from us. It’s a chance for you to find out a little more about us, and to make sure that we’re exactly what you’re looking for. It will also give you a chance to take a look at our virtual platform, to make sure you like what you see.
2. Schedule your free trial lesson. Again, at this point in the process you’re still under no obligation to purchase any services from us. It’s a second chance for you to make sure that we’re exactly what you’re looking for.
3. Purchase your first lesson package. We offer packages of five one-hour lessons normally starting from £200. For the next two months, we’re offering a launch discount of five one-hour lessons for £160.
Payment works via PayPal, integrated for your convenience into our Learning Management System.
