Personal Description:

I am currently a PGCE qualified Science teacher, teaching GCSE and A-Levels at a Secondary School in West London. I have graduated with a BSc degree in Pharmaceutical Chemistry at Queen Mary University of London, which included an in-depth study of topics such as: Organic Chemistry, Kinetics, Thermodynamics, Quantum Chemistry and Biochemistry. These are topics which are all included in the new A-Level Chemistry syllabus.

Having done Chemistry, Biology, Psychology and Mathematics at A-Level and holding a BSc degree, gives me sound knowledge of the subject and I am in my second year of the Teach First Graduate Leadership Programme. I have qualified and gained my PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate in Education) degree from Canterbury Christ Church University (Kent) in the first year of the programme - August 2017, and am now working as a NQT (newly qualified teacher) in the second year of the programme.

I am told to be an approachable person which allows me to build a very good working relationship with my students. They are never afraid of asking questions and this gives me the opportunity to identify problems and rectify them quickly.

Tutoring Experience:

Having taught Biology (GCSE), Chemistry (GCSE and A-Level) and Physics (GCSE) to students of varying different backgrounds and from challenging backgrounds (including SEN students to students of very high ability in top sets), I have the ability to cater to all students' needs in order to push them to the next level. All students are different and they all have varying needs. I try building a relationship of trust and listen to what their needs are. Science is a challenging subject and most students can do very well, provided they have self-belief and are willing to work hard.

Although I currently teach all three Sciences in a secondary school, my specialism lies in Chemistry due to my BSc degree. I am also confident with the new content of the AQA Trilogy Combined Science, OCR A/B and Edexcel GCSE and AQA and Edexcel A level specifications. I have been tutoring since the age of 16 and my initial experience stems from a language school, in which I taught in, alongside private tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

Due to the changes in the new GCSE and A-Level specifications, I ensure that my students are fully equipped to be able to tackle challenging questions. I incorporate exam-style questions into my teaching to boost pupils' confidence and assess their applied knowledge. There is a huge jump from GCSE to A-Levels; however my unique teaching style bridges this gap between GCSE and AS-level. I also ensure that homework is set regularly and assessed. I firmly belief that feedback is the most vital aspect to promote student progress; therefore, I provided as much feedback as possible based on questions, homework and work set.
