Personal Description:

I am a professional science teacher who is passionate about the subject and enjoys teaching it. I hold a first class degree in Natural Sciences and a PGCE in secondary science.My utmost satisfaction is derived from seeing students improve academically and beginning to appreciate the natural world . I always seek to stimulate the curiosity of students and burden them with the big questions. I am always pleased to see students begin to ask the 'whys'. I hold a first in Natural Sciences and a PGCE in Secondary science. I am also a proud member of the STEM club in my school which was adjudged the best in the country last year. In my spare time I write on social and political issues for local medias in my country of origin, Ghana. I also enjoy writing poems and playing table tennis.

Tutoring Experience:

I have 8 years teaching experience of which 6 has been in London across different schools ranging from Grammar to Academies. I have always taught all the sciences ( Biology, Chemistry, Physics) from KS3- 4 and rotated between teaching Physics and Chemistry at A level and IB. I am currently the lead IB Physics teacher in my school which was judged outstanding by ofsted in 2015. I plan and tailor my lessons to meet the needs of all my students. I always look for the opportunity to incorporate experimental skills in lessons to help students appreciate the limitations of different factors and to be able to analyse and evaluate data. I also place a lot of emphasise on the use of computer programmes such as Excel, Python, Matlab to mention a few to simulate and model abstract theories and make conclusions.

Tutoring Approach:

When tutoring I use a lot of kinaesthetic, visual and auditory resources to help deepen the understanding of different concepts. I use a lot of structured and examination questions to scaffold the learning of students. I regularly conduct mini tests for students, which is reviewed, targets set and strategies put in place to achieve them. I specifically do lessons on improving on experimental skills by using simulations and modelling. I also organise lessons for prospective tutees on revision techniques and how to plan effective timetables to help them maximise their independent learning times.
