I am an experienced science teacher and have had a great deal of success getting young people good grades in their GCSEs.
People regard me as kind, friendly and considerate.
I have 12 years teaching experience in secondary education and have also taught in middle schools. I have predominantly taught KS3 and KS4 during this time but have also worked with younger children and those with special educational needs.
This year I tutored a student for a couple of months before his GCSEs via Skype. He has dyslexia and was targeted an E and an F. His final grades were a C in Core Science and a D in Additional Science. He was delighted with these results as they gave him access to his chosen college course.
Throughout my teaching career I have always tried to engage students with science by relating it to their personal experience. Up to GCSE, I establish what is already secure in a student's understanding and then work with them to build on this. A key part of what I do as a tutor is to ensure that anything I have taught can be effectively recalled in exam style answers. This gives the best indication of exactly how much progress is being made.
