I am a qualified and practising science teacher. My current role is as lead practitioner for Science education across Guildford. Essentially this means as well as teaching students in the school in which I am mostly based I "teach" teachers how to teach outstanding lessons to raise attainment in their students. I have a firm awareness of the current requirements to get a good grade in your exams, whether they be gcse or a level. In addition, my science background comes hand in hand with a firm mathematical understanding. As well as teaching the conventional routes, I am experienced with the ocr national and btec pathways and so would be able to provide assignment based tutition to ocr and btec candidates.

Tutoring Experience

I have been working in schools for ten years now. The first of which, I was working as a science technician and providing tuition for the gcse candidates. Following completion of my teacher training and NQT year I undertook the role of KS3 coordinator within a secondary school in Guildford. A year later I was promoted to Head of Year 9 and stayed with my year group until the end of Year 10. I was then appointed as lead practitioner for science within an outstanding in all categories school in central London. In September 2017 I returned to Surrey and am now undertaking a cross-school role to not only raise attainment of students in the school I am based in the majority of the time but also a cluster of schools across Guildford and Woking.

Tutoring Approach

In order for pupils to achieve it is important that they have an understanding of concepts coverred. Once they have a firm grasp of concepts they are more likely to remeber them when it comes to the exam. No pupil will achieve this understanding through being talked at by someone. I therefore try to ensure that my lessons combine teaching, discussion and activities that reinforce understanding and cater for the learning style of the pupil.
