Our Story.

We understand applying for post-graduate medicine is difficult – we’ve been there. We remember scouring the internet for resources: asking friends-of-friends-of-friends for advice, taking any opportunity to ensure we had the best chance of getting in.

That’s why we created GamsatScience. Developed by a small group of medical and dental students, this is a platform for current medical and dental students to pass on their knowledge to those aspiring to follow in their footsteps.

For those looking to enter medicine or dentistry, here you’ll find medical and dental students who truely excel in the areas they tutor, eager to share their aquired wisdom.

Meet The Team

Alison, 4th Year Dental Student, University of Melbourne

Co-founder, Specialist GAMSAT Section 1 & 2 Tutor

Hi, I’m currently in my final year of my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Melbourne. I have 7 years of tutoring experience and have taught more than 100+ students who have gone on to achieve fantastic results and enter medical school. I teach both GAMSAT Section 1 and 2 after scoring 100th percentile results and believe that learning critical techniques and clarity in essay writing are important to ace the GAMSAT.  

I’m friendly and engaging and have worked with people with an ESL background to those looking to perfect their marks. I work to your needs and can’t wait to chat to you soon! 😊

James Reynolds, 4th Year Medical Student, University of Melbourne

Co-founder, Specialist GAMSAT Section 3 Tutor

My name is James, and I’m in my final year of medicine at the University of Melbourne. I scored an 84 in Section 3 by approaching it as a problem-solving exercise and focusing on my ability to interpret graphs, recognise patterns and calculate maths equations efficiently rather than rote learning basic sciences. I use this philosophy to teach my students and have thoroughly enjoying seeing my students improve their GAMSAT scores.

In my spare time I love a game of tennis, soccer, chess, or pretty much anything involving some form of competition!

Specialist GAMSAT Section 1 & 2 Tutor

My name is Amy and I’m a final year medical student! I’ve been tutoring for 5 years and I love watching students gain confidence in the topics they once found daunting. In my spare time you’ll find me embracing my inner grandma: knitting or crocheting with a cup of tea in hand.

George is a final year medical student at the University of Melbourne. He has been tutoring GAMSAT (specialising in section 2) and MMI for the past 3 years, and before that has several years of middle school and high school tutoring.

Specialist GAMSAT Section 3 Tutor

Hello, my name is Tao! I’m a first year MD student at Unimelb with an undergraduate background in immunology. I’m currently based in Melbourne, with a strong interest in biology, chemistry and physics. My philosophy for GAMSAT Section 3 is that it is all about problem-solving. I love teaching students to hone their skills in detecting patterns and reflecting on strategies that are used for different ACER GAMSAT questions.

In my free time, I enjoy tennis, piano and origami!
