Prior to completing the PGCE I worked as a scientist in industry. I am enthusiastic about science and keen to help others develop their understanding of, and interest in, science and maths.
I have completed a PGCE and have experience of teaching in a variety of mainstream schools, other educational settings and across different ability ranges. I have worked with small groups and individuals and have over 1000 hours of tutoring experience.
I have tutored Maths and Science up to KS3 and individual Sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) up to GCSE. This has been across the AQA, OCR and IGCSE Edexcel exam boards.
In addition I have also worked with students aiming for Common Entrance Exams at 11+ and 13+. There has also been the opportunity to work with some students being home schooled, teaching both Maths and Science, and including practical work within Science lessons.
Initially I like to find out what the student does know and the areas that are proving more challenging. We can then work to develop these weaker areas through increasing knowledge, discussion of ideas and using exam questions to check understanding and progress.
I use a range of techniques and methods when tutoring/teaching and the exact methods depend on what works best for the student. Time can be spent on exam technique, helping to understand what is expected in the answers in addition to using questions to monitor knowledge and progress.
