I believe in building good relationships being one of the most important things in teaching. When we can communicate effectively we can learn and teach effectively.
I have been teaching GCSE Science for 21 years, Biology up to A level for 21 years, and Physics A level for 11 years. I can also help with BTEC Science coursework and exams. I have been working for a major exam board for 11 years.
Most of my teaching has been in central London so I have lots of experience dealing with challenging behaviour and facing the challenge of students who at first don't want to learn.
I have had several positions of responsibility including KS3 coordinator, deputy Head of Science, Head of Science, and currently Head of post 16 Sciences.
My work with exam boards means I know how to get students to pass exams. I have taken on students currently on a U, and they have ended up getting an A, purely being taught how to answer exam questions.
I am currently Head of BTEC Sciences in a school.
