Welcome to The MedTutors website! My name is Tendai, I am a third year medical student at the University of Medicine and Health Sciences. Teaching has become a big part of my life since starting medical school. I have acquired the majority of my teaching experience as a Teaching assistant and online tutor for medical students. MedTutors provides educational videos for medical students on YouTube and online tutoring on Zoom. Mainly tutoring students preparing for the USMLE Step 1 and Basic Science courses.
The pursuit of the journey towards medical degree is a long journey. It takes dedication, sacrifices and most of all grit, as I say to my students. in order for us to get there it’s going to take a team effort long nights, and early mornings.
It is important to be a lifelong learner. I believe that intelligence is fluid, Whenever an opportunity arises to learn new information the fundamental question I ask myself is where does this information fit as it pertains to my prexisting knowledge. This allows us to have a firm foundational fundamentals. Allowing us to have logical approach as it pertains to the application of our knowledge.
A commodity that is limited, we all have the same 24hours in a day. It is important to make the most of your day, there is a difference between studying hard and studying smart. I always tell my students to be intentional and selective about how they spend their time and the resources used to study.
That being said, it’s still important to live a balanced life. All the work that we are putting in, is to take care of our future patients. In order to take care of others we need to ensure that we have taken care of ourselves first. This is done so by eating well, exercising, ensuring that we are looking at the big picture in mind. Most of all draw happiness in this journey. We are in this together Sometimes all you need is that push and encouragement that you can do this. There are many others who have walked this path that we are on. If they can do it we can to.
The sessions are tailored toward the needs of the students and their progression in their medical education.
The majority of the sessions are group sessions between 2 to 4 students and are tailored toward guiding students on how to apply their medical knowledge and how to approach questions. Medical reasoning is an important aspect of Medicine and requires a sound foundational framework of medical knowledge.
