Medical School Personal Statement Tutoring

Medical School Personal Statement Tutoring overview

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. 

What's included?

  • 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
  • Feedback based on the University criteria and marking scheme of your choice
  • Brainstorming session about how to begin your medicine personal statement
  • Learn how to structure your points effectively
  • Review of structure, content and relevance to the field of medicine

      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


      Ask a Question
      • How many hours of tutoring will I need?

        This will vary depending on the personal statement, but on average, students require 2-3 hours of tutoring. However, this will vary and we will continue to guide you until you are 100% happy with your statement.

      • Should I just start with tutoring before I start writing my personal statement?

        We strongly advise that you first have a go at writing it yourself. After all, it is a personal statement and therefore must be individual to you. We are not here to write the statement for you, but here to guide you, help you perfect it and highlight all of your best achievements in the most effective way.

      • Where are these sessions held?

        Over 90% of the sessions we do are by video conference, so you can receive help from the comfort of your home. If you prefer in person, we have tutors all over the UK! Let us know where you live, and we can connect you with one of our tutors nearby.

      • How do I know if I need a personal statement tutor?

        Generally, we recommend you send your personal statement for a standard review first, and we’ll advise you as to whether we believe you’d benefit from our 1-to-1 tutoring service. However, if you aren’t entirely confident and would like to book a session anyway, we’re happy to help!
