Information about Mike
Personal Descri ption:
I am a teacher with 18 years experience teaching all 3 sciences from KS3 to KS4 and Chemistry to A level therefore I have a vast scientific knowledge to pass on to my learners.
I have worked in a variety of schools and have delivered excellent results in all of them, this proves that I can teach and achieve positive outcomes for a variety of learners. Being a successful Head of Science whos departments results are amongst the best in the country also demonstrates this. This makes me the perfect choice to help improve your child`s progress in Chemistry so that they reach their full potential.
I discuss a topic with the student to assess their understanding, and to find which areas need clarification or explanation. I aim for a secure understanding rather than rote learning. I believe it is important for students to be familiar with the approach used by the exam board that they are working for, so I ensure that have plenty of practice with past exam questions. In addition to improving students academically, I am also able to improve them pastorally through growth mindset and motivational strategies.
