  • One-to-one tutoring sessions in person or online with our senior reviewers with flexible hours - available every day, morning or evening 
  • Tailored tutoring session, focusing on areas you want to improve

Having a strong personal statement is a good idea, as it gives you a chance to show interviewers you’re prepared to study medicine. If there’s one thing we can all appreciate, it’s that we all have different strengths. Helping you get the chance to study medicine is one of ours!

We start by giving you some help writing personal statements, important if you’re going through the UCAS Personal Statement application process. Your University application is the first step towards becoming a full-time medical student - so prepare accordingly!

Each unique one-to-one session with one of our personal statement tutors is tailored to you and allows us to identify and develop your weaker areas. One of our senior reviewers will guide you through each tricky step and help you avoid common pitfalls while using their skills and experience to highlight your achievements effectively.  

We recommend most students start with our Personal Statement Review Service: send us a draft and we comment and edit the draft line by line. For some, that level of detailed feedback is enough. If we feel the personal statement has not improved enough after already having our detailed review, we recommend 1-to-1 tutoring for additional support.   

For some students, it’s difficult just to get the ball rolling. There are many things to consider, including appropriate content, structure, and showing your life or work experience in a relevant way. In a “getting started” tutoring session, you can expect a full content brainstorming session tailored to the schools of your choice and their marking scheme. We plan a strong structure around your content and help you get started – giving advice about what stories to share and how to reflect on them to impress examiners.

    Lovely tutoring

    We had a lovely session with Rachel. She was so helpful, supportive and encouraging. It made a huge difference in how my son approached writing his personal statement and his confidence as an applicant.

    Medical school personal statement tutoring

    The advice given was tailored to specific places I was applying which is very useful. Overall, the entire process was extremely efficient and easy to navigate. I would recommend, especially as response rate is extremely quick which is invaluable for tight early application deadlines.

    Personal Statement

    As a student, looking to further my studies in the highly competitive world of medicine, applying to go to university can be a daunting prospect. Competition for the best schools, entrance exams and fulfilling the selection criteria, are just come of the things that can make the whole process dread making and extremely stressful. I was therefore very glad to have the talents of Dr. Dibah Jiva to call on. She has been an invaluable source of encouragement, calm, insight and level-headedness; I cannot thank her enough. Dr Jiva has a vast amount of experience and knowledge when it comes to the steps and information required for applying to study medicine at degree level, and these talents came to the fore when I had to write my personal statement. She helped me extensively in compiling my statement; ensuring that I had taken the time to identify my most relevant skills, work undertaken and personal attributes, so as to present myself in the very best light. Dr. Jiva made me feel at ease and helped me to focus on those areas, in which a university admissions board would be most interested. By the time I had collated all of the details together, I had gathered enough information to write five or six personal statements. Despite all of this, Dr Jiva still took the time to guide me through the editing process; advising and recommending the key points to include and equally important, which superfluous bits of information to leave out. Dr Jiva is patient, conscientious and a pleasure to work with. If you are a student, wanting to get the best out of your university application, and in particular, your personal statement, then I would highly recommend you speak with Dr. Dibah Jiva. Thank you Dr. Jiva
