We are very pleased with your support and would like to thank you for your input that has contributed to [our son's] progress.The Douley Family (Private Tuition)
An independent and enthusiastic worker with experience in Web Design and IT Support, Hospitality and Catering, and Private Education (Tutoring).
My experience is varied and spans across many sectors - here's a snippet!
At the age of fifteen I decided to monetise my hobby of gaming. By independently learning all necessary code, I managed to create a well-performing website that allowed people to customise their gaming controllers: red tiger print cases, buttons that looked like bullets, glow in the dark thumbsticks, you name it - I did it. I later sold the business to a competitor so I could move on to my next endeavour - medical school.
~1 and a half years
Having spent many days in this industry, I can admit - they're long! Continuing to serve with a smile as I encroached my 12th or 13th hour into the shift was a skill that I mastered. It was the working with people that interested me and I definitely have some great stories to tell because of this!
I quite enjoy passing on knowledge, particularly on a one-to-one basis. My lessons are always geared towards stretching the student beyond their potential, whatever that may be. Unfortunately, tutors are the mediators between the demanding parents and their children, so it's quite important that I get the balance right to avoid tutees becoming disinterested! Work hard, play harder.
During the coronavirus pandemic of 2020, I was employed by carehomes to take virus swabs of service users and staff. I also monitored their health status (temperature, blood pressure etc.) and helped the non-medical staff understand the jargon that doctors used in their notes too!
The time I spent at school is unarguably one of my best childhood memories, they really weren't lying when they said "school is the best time of your life".
I studied the combination of A-Levels that everyone cringes at when they hear: Biology, Chemistry and Maths (with AS French too. I know).
Studying Medicine & Surgery (MBBS). There may be scope to add an extra year on to my studies, allowing me to attain a Masters (MSc) in addition to my MBBS. This is known as intercalation and is something that I am considering.
Completing Foundation Years 1 and 2 in a north-east hospital, gaining exciting experience as a junior doctor.
Currently, I'm "contributing to Science" by being involved in a research project (or two). There's potential to get my name in print but it's a long process. Check back again soon...
I'm currently on the look out for opportunities to bulk out my portfolio. I can install a website for you for free on my hosting servers, even setting up WordPress for you. If you're interested, just email me.
Though this website was my first, profitable project, it definitely wasn't a basic set-up by any means. This site is now sold but still uses the long-lasting code I developed, such as the bespoke "create your own" controller generator and staff and customer order tracking system.
Built on Laravel, this web app incorporates Bootstrap CSS to ensure optimal viewing on all devices. This project was originally commissioned and used by a small tutoring company and its respective national branches. However, this project has since been licensed for use by a school overseas too!
From 2019 to 2020, my commitments to the society extended way beyond my title of Treasurer. Duties spanned from the design, development and hosting of all-things-IT to "professional pint pourer" at socials.
With a specification that demanded a rapid turn around and on a budget, this website was built to serve an up-and-coming musician and his followers. This follows the same template as my own site and is perfect for similar websites or online CVs.
Towards the end of 2018, I temporarily chaired on the board for an open-source web application that, at the time of writing, was used by companies across the globe (150,000+ downloads) to keep track of their invoices and quotations. Unfortunately, perspectives and priorities changed and I made a tactical decision to give up my position as co-manager. My effect on the application was little to none, given the such short time I was involved. A good link to check out, nevertheless.
During my time at university, I have been actively engaging with the years below to help encourage them to apply to Medicine. In addition, a colleague and I founded the linked website to provide mentorships to potential applicants, including the provision of workshops and on-going support. As per our passion to help represent the socio-economically disadvantaged, scholarships and consequent free mentorships are available to all who meet criteria.
Installed and managed by myself, this website serves the client and their patients perfectly. The use of WordPress allows the user to make unlimited revisions to any pages, such as contact information or offered services and subsequent details. In this particular instance, I was also involved in the decision-making process, making recommendations during the design and editing phase to ensure the best finish.
My services are best suited for small to medium-sized businesses who are after a great hourly rate. If you're interested in what I can do for you, just ask for a quote.
I won't exaggerate my skills to claim that I know all there is about website design or development. Instead, I'll tell you that I've got the experience - I know what is required (and then some) and have established many successful websites because of this.

I've received many compliments about this webpage from both friends and employers. The job market is competitive but all it takes is something to make you memorable. Contact me today and we can create a website to let you show off!
My skill in developing "back-end" solutions is continuously being improved upon. I have developed a vast array of apps based on pure PHP and PHP-based frameworks: from affiliate schemes, to order logging and even a bespoke student tracker.
Websites often come equipped with a large 'to do list'. With this service, my experience of managing websites will help streamline the process. I'll be guiding the site through its development and analysing data at every step. Results, results, results!
The online presence of a website could be key to making a profit or a loss. From grammatical errors to not being optimised for search engines, there's a lot that goes in to getting visitors and assuring them of your authenticity. I've done exactly that for years.
Due to the numerous projects I undergo each year, I have secured a discounted web hosting package. This, alongside cPanel assistance, can be provided to all my clients - even those with websites not managed by myself.
My refined skills in dealing with (and prioritising) large volumes of enquiries from customers can be particularly useful to small businesses. If you're planning for an influx of customers next quarter, I am happy to work on an ad-hoc basis.
I utilise numerous online facilities that enable Maths, English and Science classes to be online. There is no longer the need to travel to tuition centres and with the education system getting ever harder, my adept tutoring skills are growing in value.
