[Accepting 3 more students for Sept 2022.]


I'm Sam, a second-year medical student at the University of Melbourne (CSP) and an experienced GAMSAT tutor. After scoring in the 99th percentile in the GAMSAT and receiving offers from USyd and Unimelb, I've been leveraging my experience and my knowledge of the test to help others beat the GAMSAT and realise their dreams of getting into medicine. I provide a first-principles approach so that you're ready for any essay topic and even the stranged of S3 questions.


GAMSAT Five Lesson Program ($100 per session)
We start with a 90-minute introductory session - this will be an opportunity for me to learn about your weaknesses when it comes to S2/S3, allowing me to develop a tailored preparation plan. Namely, I’m able to curate practice questions that concentrate on your weaknesses (be it physics, abstract reasoning, graphical interpretation etc.), such that your preparation is as efficient as possible. In our introductory session, I’ll also outline basic, intermediate and advanced strategies when it comes to S2/S3, spanning topics such as exam sitting strategy, essay structure, exam hacks etc.

Following our introductory session, you’ll be provided with practice questions (in the case of S3) or essay topics (in the case of S2), with specific emphasis on the weaknesses identified in our introductory session. Importantly, the five lesson program aims to be intensive and focused, we’ll review questions, essays, exam strategy and you’ll be given homework after each session. This way, your preparation will be efficient, saving you time and money.

Melbourne University MMI Program ($100 per session)
We’ll have an introductory session wherein I’ll outline the basic interview strategy. Subsequently, we’ll refine each station through a series of mock stations - both your responses and my feedback will be recorded allowing you to review it in your own time. Along the way, I’ll be providing resources that I personally created in the course of my interview preparation in 2020. Most notably, my MMI program prepares your for both pre-2020 and 2020 interviewing styles, such that you’ll be prepared no matter the format/question style that Unimelb decides to use.

"I couldn’t have found Sam more helpful! He emphasised a first principles approach and we spent most of our sessions refining the basics i.e. structure, building argument complexity and brainstorming essay ideas. He was always very patient and willing to go the extra mile to answer my texts, emails and calls whenever I had a question. Sam is a big reason I managed to jump my S2 score from a 63 to a 72. Definitely recommend!"
