Medicine Summer Schools – Tutors Wanted

Posted on by

Debate Chamber is a small education company running non-exam oriented academic Summer Schools for students aged 15-18.

The subjects we cover include Philosophy, Politics, Economics, International Relations, History, Classical Civilisations, History of Art, English Literature, Law, Mathematics, Physics, Medicine and Dentistry. You can take a look at our courses here – http://www.debatechamber.com/summerschools/

We’re a little different to other tutoring or admissions companies, in that we don’t coach students to pass their school exams, or finesse their interview technique. Instead, our events focus on building on students’ intellectual curiosity and desire to explore academic material in a more sophisticated way than is often available to them at school. We encourage students to explore material more independently, pursuing their own interests and questions, rather than trying to second guess the desires of an examiner, interviewer or teacher.

We are looking for fourth and fifth year medics with excellent subject knowledge and strong communication skills to teach some introductory medicine topics to classes of bright and motivated secondary age students. The courses will take place at weekends in July and August and are held at University of London venues.

The rate of pay is £145 per day. We require Tutors to hold or apply for a DBS check (we can help you to do this).

If this sounds like something that would interest you, then please send your cv and cover letter to Jessica Harvey-Smith at jhs@debatechamber.com.  We will be holding interviews over the next few weeks.
