Personal Description:

Full-time secondary science teacher and ex-police detective with BSc and Msc in Forensic Science and Criminology. I am teacher and tutor who's had a real life outside of education. I really know and understand the pressures on students and families outside the school gates. Not only am I full time secondary science teacher, I've had life before teaching which means I can furnish my lessons with a plethora of fascinating examples of science used in real life.

Tutoring Experience:

During my time in the police I used to train new police officers, guide them on visits to watch post-mortems, and assess their performance. Since September 2015 I have worked at Oriel High School in Crawley. There I teach 11-18 year olds, science at KS3 and Biology at KS4 & KS5.

Tutoring Approach:

I always like to take time to get to know a student because everyone learns differently and finds different aspects of science interesting. I then like to build on that, give students confidence in what they can do well and then use that foundation to move on to more challenging aspects. Generally I adopt a coaching style, allowing people to critic their own performance, drawing out the positives and helping them build their own targets with are specific, measureable and acheiveable. However, if someone is not meeting the standard I am not afraid of having a tough conversation and tackle that head on. I see that as the best way to get to heart of issues and to then move on positively. I use a variety of methods, getting students listening, speaking and 'doing'.
