Biography & Interests
Besides teaching, I am a trainee doctor at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital. I have a special interest in Ophthalmology and eye surgery. I am also a keen rower and play for the university cricket team. In my free time I enjoy watching football and support, the greatest team in the land, Liverpool. Embarrassingly, I’ve been told that I have 'old man' hobbies such making Latte art with my coffee machine and cooking Neapolitan pizzas.
Experience & Approach
For almost 6 years, I have been teaching Biology, Chemistry and Physics up to A Level and teaching Maths, English, History and Geography up to GCSE level. I have lectured classes in Medical Prep and Human Biology at Oxford University summer school for 4 years. I worked as a teacher for Stemkids where I taught primary school students engineering and science through fun practical experiments. I have worked as a tutor for King's College Widening Participation where I'd visit low achieving secondary schools and encourage students to choose medicine or other health care professions by running interactive clinical skill workshops. I have also helped students with interview preparations for medical school, Oxbridge interviews and school entrance exams.
My pedagogical strategy enables students to augment information through several different modalities (visual, verbal, question asking, worksheet activities and lecturing). To prevent lapses in concentration and maintaining optimal engagement, students are taught the same concept through different tasks and activities. This has been proven to strengthen synapses between neurones in the brain and drastically improve understanding and memory of a subject.
"Sadat got me from a C to a high A in my A level Biology exam" Year 12 student
"I made it to UCL medical school because Sadat spent 20 hours the week before my interview to make sure that I was 100% ready, he was very considerate of my anxiety and never gave up on me"
