Oxbridge Application Preparation (Life Sciences Admissions)

Are you thinking of applying to Oxbridge for Life Sciences (Natural Sciences, Biology, Biomedicine)?

With acceptance rates averaging around 15%, you want to give yourself the best chance to get that offer! And this is where I come in. I hold a 1st from Oxford in Biological Sciences and have volunteered as an Admissions mentor for over three years, coaching students through the application process. We will work together to adapt the course to your needs, working flexibly to focus on the areas where you want extra support.

How can I help?
- Personal Statement Support: Writing a personal statement doesn’t have to be painful. We will create an initial outline using your experiences and interests, producing a clear message and story throughout. Then, I will provide editing support, helping you to cut words down for the strict character limits.
- Course and College Selection: Overwhelmed by the choice of courses/colleges? I can provide personal, insider knowledge into each college, helping you to make the right decision for you.
- Tutorial Prep: Using my knowledge of the tutorial system, I design personalised tutorials based on your interests, fostering your love of science and building your confidence. Self-belief is an underrated skill, and together we will work to develop your confidence to speak up, even if you think you are wrong.
- Interview Prep: The infamous Oxbridge interviews will not be as scary as they seem after our sessions. Using the self-belief and scientific analysis skills developed in our tutorial sessions, you will feel well-equipped to deal with an interview scenario. Initially, we will go through my bank of interview questions, discussing your approach and response to questions. As time goes on, we will start to practice mock interviews, 30-45 minutes of questions with feedback given afterwards.
- Admissions Test Prep: Many courses demand rigorous admissions tests, which require sound subject knowledge and lateral thinking. We will work on these together, helping you to become accustomed to the style of the questions.

I look forward to hearing from you!

My name is Fawzi, and I am a French language teacher. Since 2012, I have been giving private lessons online. My objective is to support learners towards success in the DELF (Diploma of Studies in French Language) or the DALF (Advanced Diploma in French Language), as well as the TCF (French Knowledge Test). I have had the pleasure of helping many students of different nationalities through my online courses. For me, helping enthusiasts practice the French language is an enriching experience, because I understand the importance of success in the lives of ambitious people. I speak Arabic, French, Spanish, a little English and a little Turkish. During my classes, I explain concepts in French, Arabic or Spanish, depending on your preference. At the end of each session, I offer exercises to do as homework, in order to identify your gaps and monitor your progress. Here are some essential points to know about the DELF and DALF: - The DELF (Diploma in French Language Studies) and the DALF (Advanced Diploma in French Language) are two high-quality official diplomas. They are aligned with the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and cover the following six levels, from the most basic to the most advanced: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2. These diplomas are suitable for all ages and all audiences. - The DELF B2 and, increasingly, the DALF C1, provide access to French, European or French-speaking universities, as well as certain Grandes Ecoles. If you plan to take DELF or DALF exams, or if you want to improve your level, do not hesitate to book your sessions with me to start preparation. I am available !

PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT IN HIS JOB SEARCH / CAREER TRANSITION, ESPECIALLY DURING COVID19
Adapted to each case and need, the objective is support in accessing a job, from the search for departure to the signing of the contract: - After the search and selection of relevant advertisements, establish and illustrate your transversal skills profile then create an attractive CV and write a striking cover letter highlighting your professional background - stand out in the preparation of their interviews, from oral presentation to expression through appropriate body language. Interview simulation & video analysis filmed if necessary. - Identify your values, promote your professional project / your assets and strengths but also work on areas for improvement in order to find new momentum in your career. Note that during the videoconference session, all the notes are transcribed in the chat so that you can access them at any time when you wish. Statistically, the progression following these private sessions is quickly noticeable, from 2 sessions. (study 2020) PLACES : - Locations: Geneva - Lausanne - Friborg - Neuchâtel - Montreux - Basel - Sion - Sierre - Morges - Bienne. But currently and until further notice, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of direct (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (example: loss of travel time) with additional advantages (example: chat notes that can be read later). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to suit everyone perfectly, take place in a very optimal way and generate a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). That is why, at your request, I continue to offer this option. Take good care of yourself and yours. Trained in Grande Ecole post-preparatory classes & Ivy League university in the United States, specialized and has been working for more than 13 years, in Europe and North America, in the field of communication and public speaking, in renowned international public and private institutions, intervening in forums and conferences, and oriented towards pedagogy and careful methodology.
