I am an experienced Assistant Head Teacher at a secondary school in Rickmansworth. I have a proven track record in achieving high results with my students and making significant progress at all Key Stages. I have a passion and enthusiasm for Computer Science and IT. I am experienced in teaching computer theory, pseudocode/algorithms and practical programming.
I have been a class teacher for 10 years, a Head of Year for 6 of those, including being Head of Post 16 Education and an Assistant Head Teacher. I have achieved Outstanding lesson observations in all my lesson for the 10 years I have been teaching. My GCSE and A Level results have always been very high.
I am able to teach complex algorithms and programming solutions in a variety of different programming languages. My approach is structured and allows me to build up my students' skills and make them comfortable computer scientists.
My aim will be to make sure all the students I tutor progress every lesson and further their understanding. I will use personalised learning checklists to ensure that all students and parents understand which areas of the curriculum need developing. I will use a variety of assessment techniques to ensure that the academic understanding of every student is accurately measured. My passion for the subject will also allow me to use real-world examples and exciting different views on topics. I will always aim to make my lessons as fun and engaging as possible.
