Personal Description:

Hi, I'm Liz :) I'm 31 years old and a full time teacher living in Wallsend and working in Washington. I qualified as a teacher 3 years ago, though have been working in an educational setting for the past 6 years in various roles.

I've always placed great importance in the value of education, and having completed an undergraduate BSc in Psychology, I'm very passionate about helping other through the learning process. I'm very patient and calm, and my aim is to create in my pupils the same love for learning that I experienced while at school and university.

For 3 and a half years I worked within secondary education, first as a Classroom Assistant and subsequently as a Cover Supervisor. I have a vast amount of classroom experience and have also experienced a range of different teaching styles through the colleagues with whom I have worked, in addition to various Continued Professional Development sessions. I have recently qualified as a Science teacher after gaining a PGCE in Science with Biology from the University of Sunderland, and I'm currently employed as a Teacher of Science at a secondary school rated 'Good' at last inspection.

I have a PGCE qualification in secondary school teaching in Science. This course provided training to support teaching Biology, Chemistry and Physics to Key Stage 3 and GCSE level, as well as Biology to A Level standard. In addition to this I am also able to teach Psychology to A Level standard. I received consistently positive feedback from both of my placement mentors and was graded as an Outstanding trainee at the end of my both placements. My particular areas of excellence are behaviour management, subject knowledge and having high expectations for success in my learners.

Tutoring Experience:

I have qualifications relevant to the subjects that I am prepared to tutor in, including GCSEs in English, Science and Maths (all A*-A) and a BSc in Psychology. I have previous experience in volunteering for teaching positions, including private tuition in Key Stage 3 Science, and as a Teaching Assistant to a Special Needs class which included teaching students to read and to do basic mathematics.

For eighteen months I was employed as a Teaching Assistant in Science and Special Educational Needs at Carlton Le Willows Academy - an outstanding secondary school in Nottingham with a well maintained reputation for high standards of excellence in Teaching and Learning. In addition to my role as a TA, I was also employed for a year as an A Level Psychology teacher. I taught both the synoptic content and the Research Methods module of the Advanced Level course to two classes of Year 13 students. I left this position in order to relocate to Newcastle, where I worked as a Learning Support Assistant at Walbottle Campus - first in the Behaviour Unit and then in the SEN department.

More recently I was employed by Gosforth Academy - another outstanding school with high standards of excellence in Teaching and Learning - as a Cover Supervisor. I gained valuable experience in leading lessons in the classroom and developed my teaching and behaviour management skills. I have experience teaching a wide range of ages and abilities, both individually and in groups, and I aim to maintain the high standards of competency that my previous experience has helped me to develop.

During my PGCE I was first placed at a further education college at which I taught part of the Level 3 BTEC qualification in Applied Science and the Human Physiology module of the Access to Nursing and Midwifery qualification. I was subsequently placed in an 11-16 school which has been rated 'Good' under Ofsted standards.I received consistently positive feedback from both of my placement mentors and was graded as an Outstanding trainee at the end of both placements. My particular areas of excellence are behaviour management, subject knowledge and having high expectations for success in my learners. After completion of my PGCE I was offered employment in the school in which I did my second placement. I am currently employed there permanently as a Teacher of Science in my third year of teaching. I teach Biology, Chemistry and Physics to both Key Stage 3 and 4.

I have been a private tutor for several years now and have previously tutored in A Level Psychology, GCSE Biology, Chemistry and Physics (Combined and Triple) and Key Stage 3 Science.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to take an approach that encourages the student to enjoy and care about the subject they are learning, in order to create a passion for it that will support their acquisition of knowledge. I believe that the best way to learn is interactively, in which the student contributes just as much to the lesson as I do, using methods such as mind-mapping and kinaesthetic activities to include the student in the learning process to the fullest extent. I also like to set work to do outside of tutoring sessions, to complete in conjunction with their school work and to ensure that the student consolidates their knowledge of the subject that I am teaching them. I believe that a high degree of interest is central to successful learning and I always aim to involve my students in the teaching process to the fullest extent possible. I also believe that it is vital to convey to the student how the information being taught can be applied to real world situations, to impress upon them the importance of learning.
