I am head of KS4 science in a London school where I was graded outstanding during an Ofsted inspection in 2018. 9 years experience tutoring GCSE biology, chemistry and physics up to triple level, with over 90% success rate in students achieving their target grades. I specialise in AQA, Edexcel and OCR, with a thorough understanding of the different core practical and mathematical skills, as well as the differences between the mark schemes. As a teacher I have access to over 1000 exam questions that are not freely available on the internet to ensure your child is 100% ready for their exams. As head of KS4 in my school, I have developed a deep understanding of the syllabus, having created schemes of work for KS3 and KS4. Within my department I managed the creation of many lesson resources, linking them to differentiated exam questions which are unavailable on the internet. What I do for you is I take this experience and resources from my work and I use it to plan a bespoke journey for your child's learning and success.
SCIENCE & ACADEMIC BACKGROUND
- I previously worked in the oil industry as a petroleum geoscientist exploring for shale gas
- I graduated from the University of Manchester with an MSc in Petroleum Geoscience in 2012 having been awarded a scholarship from a US oil company.
- Earth sciences is an interdisciplinary subject which has forced me to develop a deep understanding for physics, chemistry and biology, which is why I have developed the ability to confidently teach all sciences up to a high level.
I first aim to identify barriers that are stopping the student from achieving their full potential (lack of self-confidence, weakness on certain aspects of curriculum, poor exam technique etc.)
I then provide a variety of worksheets, exam questions, one on one teaching and homework which cater to the unique requirements of each student.
I set the highest expectations that must be met in order for success to be achieved.
I have a proven track record for all my students achieving their expected target grades at GCSE.
I understand what is required to get into a Russel Group university having studied at one myself and can help your child achieve their full potential to achieve this target.
