I am an experienced teacher having gained excellent results via tutoring and school based examinations. I am also an exam marker and moderator for several exam boards for GCSE Physical Education and Biology, and also AS/A2 Physical Education.
I am a graduate from the University of Bath where I studied a BSc in Sport Performance (2.1 grade) and a Graduate from Leeds Metropolitan University where I studied an MSc in Sport and Exercise Nutrition (Merit grade). I am a qualified high performance sport nutritionist (SENr registered), and have worked for premiership rugby and football clubs, as well as a private consultant.
I am a qualified secondary Physical Education teacher with second subject of Science, specifically Biology, having gained QTS and NQT status, and teach up to KS5 for practical and theory classes. I am currently working in a large co education secondary school as Head of PE.
I was a professional athlete having been part of the Great Britain Athletics team in heptathlon, and a member of the Great Britain Bobsleigh team.
I studied German, Human Biology and Physical Education to A-level and continued to further education in the area of Sport and Exercise Science.
I am 29 years old, female, very patient, hard-working, dedicated, outgoing, bright and always aim to bring enjoyment to learning.
I have been a teacher for over 5 years working in both state and independent school systems in the UK. Additionally I have experience working in British International schools.
I have also worked as a student ambassador linked to the University of Bath and Leeds Metropolitan University, working with children aged 6-18 to develop their learning skills and subject knowledge, and well as to prepare them for university.
I am currently available to tutor students in Sport/PE For students of any qualification and age, Biology to KS5, and University level for Sport Science and like courses.
I have also worked for the Youth Sport Trust delivering projects to motivate, inspire and encourage children to make the most of their lives and use my abundance of experience to help improve students grades and school experiences.
I am very aware that each child has different learning styles, so will use the appropriate tools needed to ensure quality learning is achieved. I employ a logistical and practical approach to setting tutoring tasks, and link teaching to scenarios/questions that associate feelings, emotions, and practical examples as I have found this to be very successful for exam preparation.
Additionally I always make sure I give my students comprehensive proof reading and checking time for essays or exam preparation.
