Personal Description:

I have always loved science, and for my first degree I studied Biotechnology. I worked for four years as Drug discovery scientist before completing a PGCE at UWIC.

Tutoring Experience:

I achieved my PGCE in secondary science from UWIC. My first teaching job was at a Blaengwawr comprehensive school in Aberdare, I then taught Science and Chemistry to all abilities and key stages at Radyr Comprehensive School for 7 year before becoming head of Chemistry at St Julian's High School, Which was described by Estyn 2010 inspection as outstanding. I am now head of Science in a successful school in Cardiff.

Tutoring Approach:

I discuss a topic with the student to assess their understanding, and to find which areas need clarification or explanation. I aim for a secure understanding rather than rote learning. I believe it is important for students to be familiar with the approach used by the exam board that they are working for, so I ensure that have plenty of practice with past exam questions.
