In 2012 I finished my University studies at Imperial College London from which I have two degrees: A Masters degree in Human Molecular Genetics and a Bachelors degree in Biomedical Sciences with Neurosciences and Mental Health.
Since August 2015, I have been working full-time as a science teacher in private schools in London. I have Qualified Teacher Status.
I also have a love for foreign languages. I have the equivalent of an A-level in French from taking a languages course beside my main course at university and I did GCSE Spanish at school. I have stayed in touch with these two languages by speaking them with native speakers who are friends of mine. I also helped one of my Spanish friends start a business by doing some translating for him and creating a brochure for his business.
I have a passion for teaching. I embrace the chance to be able to transfer my skills onto someone else and help them understand something that they may not be able to understand from their teachers at school, to keep going over something until they get it. My aim is to make everything clear and to give them the best grades that they have the potential to achieve.
I have 8 years’ experience of teaching. I have been teaching Biology up to A-level as well as iGCSE Chemistry and Physics, in sixth form colleges. 4 years experience as a school teacher, 8 years as a private tutor. Last year I decided to do my QTS and did it while working.
My idea of a tuition lesson is one that is planned and structured to meet the specific needs of the individual person. My approach would be to teach in a way that I see is working to generate enthusiasm in the tutee to learn and which involves their participation; not just a 'monotonous sit-and-listen' lesson.
When I'm assigned a tutee, I first find out which areas in particular he/she would like me to focus on and what he/she feels his weaknesses are. I don't need to use textbooks unless the tutee prefers that I go through their current class textbook with them/ other books that they wish to study with.
