Information About Gurneet - Hayes tutor - (1 review)
This is how 2 referees rated Gurneet:
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.
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.
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.
