I am a teacher of Computer Science, Chemistry KS3,4,5 and Physics & Mathematics to KS3&4 at a school in Aylesbury.
I am an Applied Biochemistry graduate. For the past 30 years I have undertaken roles in IT consultancy developing financial and risk models as well as developing computer based training systems and classroom training courses for blue chip organisations. I am an expert in Excel and other Microsoft Office applications as well as programming languages (C/C++, C# .Net, Java, Python) and databases (SQL Server, and Oracle).
I have a solid understanding of hardware and IT configuration including virtualisation and cloud technology.
I am DBS (Formerly CRB) checked.
I qualified as a Chemistry teacher from Bath University and taught Chemistry and Integrated Science in Hertfordshire schools becoming Head of Integrated Science and Head of Chemistry. After leaving teaching I became an IT trainer (financial modelling) for a well known technology organisation. I have recently developed Computer Based Training courses for a financial services company and managed the training department of a mid sized housing association.
I have tutored students to A level Chemistry, GCSE Mathematics & Physics success and adults to improve their Microsoft Office skills (Excel spreadsheets and macros - Excel VBA).
I have recently worked as a KS3,4 Science, Physics, Chemistry at a school in Luton and now teach Computer Science KS3,4,5, Science to KS3, Chemistry KS4 & 5 at a school in Aylesbury
I use my 30 years experience within the Finance, Leisure and Social Housing sectors to give first hand experience to my students. I find this so rewarding to pass on my knowledge to my students.
My approach is very structured however, giving flexibility to allow the student to be creative and express their flair.
I like to keep my lessons varied , using practical projects which keeps the students interest by allowing them to complete hands on tasks.
