My GAMSAT Section 1 scores increased by 12 and GAMSAT Section 2 scores by 17 marks!

Alison is a fantastic tutor. For Section I, she is dedicated and highly experienced when it comes to teaching and explaining concepts. For Section II, she always provided me with detailed feedback and different writing styles that dramatically improved my performances. Overall, she is very supportive and caring. I am very fortunate to have her as my GAMSAT tutor!(S1 improved from 50 to 62, S2 improved from 51 to 68 in GAMSAT)

My GAMSAT Section 2 mark increased from 56 to 72 (increase of 16 marks!)

I have had various S2 tutors over the years and Alison was by far the best one. Coming from a primarily scientific background, I had trouble writing essays which included personal stories and strong opinions and arguments. Alison helped me significantly improve these skills with a plethora of resources and example essays along with tailored in-depth guidance and informative feedback. I received a 56 in section two and following Alison’s tutoring and guidance I obtained a 72. I highly recommend Alison.

Alison is a fantastic tutor! She tutored me for section 2. I improved from 52 to 58 given that we only had few classes in less than a month.

My GAMSAT Section 2 increased by 11

Alison is a great tutor. She tutored me for Gamsat section 2, thanks to her my GAMSAT S2 score from 53 to 64 and my overall score to 70. The essay structure that she teaches is simple yet effective, and the skill I developed gave me confidence to tackle topics that I had not encountered before. Also, she kept me accountable if I did not finish the homework, which motivated me to continue writing essays. I’m certain that you won’t regret having her as a gamsat tutor.

He is very kind and supportive and helped me gain confidence in my abilities. He is an excellent tutor and would 10/10 recommend. Thank you James!

My GAMSAT Section 1 score improved from 50 to 63!

Very quickly she was able to identify the gaps in my knowledge and organize our lessons accordingly to ensure that my shortcomings were addressed. Within a few lessons, the S1 questions not only started to make complete sense but I began to genuinely enjoy answering them whereas before, I found S1 confronting and tiresome. Alison also provided me with a fantastic range of resources and with regular practice and her guidance, my score improved from ~ 50 to a 63!

I can only describe Alison as an extremely gifted teacher. If you are struggling with S1, then look no further than Alison for help!

I felt super confident just after a couple sessions

Leading up to my first attempt at GAMSAT in September I had no idea of how to tackle section 1 and was feeling very anxious for it. Thanks to tutoring from Amy I felt super confident just after a couple sessions with her and I was no longer worried going into the exam. Not only did it she tailor the lesson to tackle my specific weaknesses but I always looked forward to tutoring because of how much I felt myself improve over the lessons. I’m very happy with my result from S1 so I’m extremely grateful for her help and mentorship

If you look up advice on how to improve on the GAMSAT, the one piece of information that appears more often than not is to not bother with Section 1 (S1) study as it is ‘virtually impossible to improve on’. Unfortunately, I was someone who believed this narrative and therefore, my overall score always took a hit because of my abysmal Section 1 marks – until I met Alison.

Very quickly she was able to identify the gaps in my knowledge and organize our lessons accordingly to ensure that my shortcomings were addressed. Within a few lessons, the S1 questions not only started to make complete sense but I began to genuinely enjoy answering them whereas before, I found S1 confronting and tiresome. Alison also provided me with a fantastic range of resources and with regular practice and her guidance, my score improved from ~ 50 to a 63!

I can only describe Alison as an extremely gifted teacher. She is also kind, patient, dedicated and exceedingly supportive of your journey into medicine – no matter where you are in it. She has a remarkable ability to identify a student’s weaknesses and adjust her tutoring accordingly which greatly benefited me. She is also very fun to work with and the overall positive energy that she brings to the sessions will no doubt generate an enthusiasm for S1 as it did for me! If you are struggling with S1, then look no further than Alison for help!

– Marcus, March 2022 (increased S2 scores from 53–>64)

I only have one word to describe Alison – MAGIC!
I had been struggling with S1 of the GAMSAT for ages and never getting a score above ~55 which really brought down my self-esteem as I was improving in the other sections. Within a couple of lessons, Alison was able to help me understand how to tackle the dreaded S1 questions and how to analyze and interpret the texts no matter what they were (poetry, cartoons etc). My S1 score improved to a 63 and I was absolutely delighted with the progress!!!
Alison is knowledgeable, kind, patient and understanding and also provides you with some amazing resources. If you’re struggling with S1, then look no further than Alison for help 🙂

– Colin, March 2021 (increased scores from 56 to 72)

“Alison was a great help and her guidance helped me significantly in understanding how I could improve my GAMSAT essay structure and the ideas I presented. Using her framework, my essays were more concise and targeted so that I was able to score my highest mark ever! This would have by no means been possible without her. Thank you for your support in expressing myself Alison and exploring different perspectives and ideas about the world.”

– Claudia, March 2021 (increased scores from 58 to 77)

“When I initially got in touch with section 2 of GAMSAT, I felt that it was very much enigma as English is not my native language and essay writing was never my strength. This was proven after my two attempts of sitting GAMSAT. When I almost lost my faith and hope in the GAMSAT, my friend introduced Alison to me. Her way of teaching made me believe that I have a shot to ace the section 2. After studying section 2 with Alison‘s tutoring, my score went up from 48 to 64. This is a big improvement for me. Hence, to those students who find section 2 extremely difficult, I want to say: never give up hope, never lose your faith, never say never, all you need is a talented and amazing GAMSAT tutor like Alison to ace section 2.”

– Leo, March 2021 (increased scores from 48 to 64)

“Alison is a great tutor! During our lessons, she went through different essay structures I could use, exemplar essays, essay feedback and strategies to generate ideas during the exam. Alison has also taught me how to improve my analysis of current and historical affairs and incorporate them into my essays. I would highly recommend Alison as a tutor!”

– Yasmim, March 2021

“Alison has been a fantastic teacher and of great support during my GAMSAT preparation. I have always found it really hard to write essays but she taught at my pace and regularly checked in with tips and materials after class to supplement my learning. She really helped me to generate ideas and write in a way which was more conducive to Section 2, rather than university-style essays. Her patience is very much appreciated and has allowed me to achieve a score which I never would have envisioned!”

– Cherie, May 2020 (Doctor of Medicine, 2021)

“Alison is an amazing section I and section II tutor for the GAMSAT. For section I, she helped me to think and critique the text in the most efficient way possible so that I extract the necessary information without wasting time. For section II, Alison helped me develop a solid structure for both Part A & B, along with brainstorming ideas for many practice prompts. She also gave very detailed feedback on practice essays that I wrote, and provided small passages that I could possibly incorporate into my writing. Overall, Alison is very kind and understanding, she will always motivate you and give you hope of succeeding.”

– Sahej, May 2020

“Alison is an excellent tutor who helped me immensely preparing for the GAMSAT. Through my lessons with Alison, I have improved my essay structure and my ability to formulate sentences in a concise and coherent manner. English is my second language and Alison has tailored her educational approach to improve both my writing and language skills. Thanks to Alison I felt prepared and confident to approach the exam. I highly recommend Alison to anyone studying for the GAMSAT and especially for those whose English is their second language.”

– Elizabeth, May 2020 (S1 improved from 50 to 62, S2 improved from 51 to 68 in GAMSAT)

“Alison is an incredible tutor with an amazing grasp of Section 1 and 2 sections of the GAMSAT. She taught me how to think critically for Section 1 texts as well as apply a structure and flow to my Section 2 essays. She has plenty of resources for your reference and she is always in-touch with the latest news and issues and sharing them with her tutees.”

– Jay, May 2020

I have taken the GAMSAT thrice now, and I can only achieve the Section 1 and Section 2 marks with your help. Through going through cartoons and passage analysis, I feel that I became more consistent in the way I interpreted the passages and that definitely helped me with Section 1. In terms of Section 2, I always felt that I was only good at certain topics and depended heavily on how “lucky” I was to see if I could answer those questions. For Section 2, going through different themes and essay plans really helped me with figuring out the points for my essay during the exam as well as adding my personal touch to them.

– Planning, May 2020 (S1 64, S2 68)

“I thought Alison was a very good GAMSAT tutor. She was always willing to help answer any question that I had and did so in ways that made it clear to me. She is always enthusiastic about the material and that helps I was trying to learn. After each tutorial, Alison will always Email me a list of tasks need to be done before the next tutorial which guide me to study and enables to study actively!!!”

– Ellie, May 2020

“Alison is a very great tutor. She came in class prepared with detailed notes and structured thoughts. She provided me with ideas that opened my mind and methods that are easy to work on. She is very approachable and knowledgeable. She has a solid understanding of how to write a good essay, and will also tailor your classes based on your personal strengths and weakness.”

– Liz, September 2019 (Doctor of Medicine, 2021)

“Alison is a very skilled tutor. She tutored me for section 1 and section 2, with detailed printed-outs and excellent explanation. Her essay samples are very neat, interesting and fun to read! She is well-organised and can analyse the time very well that you will not waste a minute during the sessions. She is very knowledgeable and has many resources for you to practise your reading and collecting information skills. As she pulled me up my section 2 from 50ish to 60ish in barely two weeks, I can be so sure that you would not regret to have her as your gamsat tutor.”
