I have a degree in psychology and have a master's in education and a pgce in secondary education. I am currently studying a master's in forensic psychology whilst looking after my son. I have trained to teach children with dyslexia and I was a cadet officer for 7 years for St. John ambulance. I have grade 8 in piano and can teach. I have played football for Ascot ladies as well as my university. I represented my university in the British games in 2004.
I have worked as a head of department for religious education for three years and have turned the grades around from 35% A*-C to 77% A*-C in three years.
Prior to this I was head of PSHE and I have been second in department for 8 years in an outstanding school. I have been rated as outstanding by Ofsted and have achieved 100% A*-B at GCSE.
I have marked for edexcel at GCSE religious education and will be marking for aqa this summer.
I have taught piano and have had 100% success rate where my students have all got merit or higher in their exams.
I believe in creating a positive environment and tailoring to each student. I am very good at simplifying complicated topics in order to help each student understand the concepts and be independent in their own learning. I also ensure each student knows their syllabus to ensure they know what they need to study and what gaps need assistance with. I will work on exam techniques and ensure students understand the questions asked.
