I am a friendly, professional scientist, with some classroom teaching experience, although my main career has been in the pharmaceutical industry. I have a first class MChem degree in Chemistry and recently started a PGCE in Secondary science teaching with Chemistry as my specialism. I come from a very unscientific background so am aware of most of the troubles teenagers have in grasping some of the key concepts that became my passion. I have a recent DBS certificate and many years voluntary experience with children and teenagers which I would be happy to back up with references.
PGCE Chemistry with Balanced Science at Aberystwyth University - currently differed
Teaching placements - Brynmawr Foundation School, Wales, Autumn term. 11 to 16 years mixed comprehensive
- Llandovery College, Wales, Spring term 3 to 18 years private boarding school
Work experience - Nottingham Bluecoat School and Technology College, classroom assistance and observation
Voluntary work with 15 - 18 year olds completing their Duke of Edinburgh award acting as a mentor on both academic and non academic issues
Workshops with primary school aged children usually involving 'silly science' like making slime, or baking bread (which aren't as different as they sound!)
My approach to tutoring is quite laid back, I like students to understand the material on their own terms, while I understand that some learning by heart is necessary for all of the physical sciences, I would much rather a student have the confidence to make an educated, personalised answer than regurgitate a textbook.
