I recently finished my undergraduate degree which I started at a later age than normal. This allowed me to gain a lot of life experience through working a full time job before undergoing further education. In my job role I was requested to train new members of staff and this allowed me to realise my passion for teaching. I am passionate and enthusiastic about Chemistry and the sciences and enjoy keeping up to date with recent findings and discoveries. I play the flute in the university orchestra and enjoy spending time with my husband and dog at the weekends going for nice hill walks.
For the last decade I have taught the flute to children between the ages of 6-16 which has allowed me to polish my skills and approaches to catering for different students learning abilities. I have recently qualified as a teacher and tutored students to success last year. I am also completing my masters whilst working in a high school. I am very familiar with different teaching techniques and also with the new Curriculum for Excellence.
I believe in the inclusive approach to teaching. No student should be discriminated against due to their background or rate of learning. I feel that every student can learn something if a teacher is patient enough to find the correct method for them. Due to being at university at the moment, I have a large amount of different methods at my disposal.
