I am a qualified science teacher with a BSc (Hons) in Medical Physiology. After completing my degree, I gained teaching experience as an unqualified teacher in a secondary school. This afforded me with a wealth of teaching experience, including secondary science and A level chemistry, as well as teaching a life skills subject, working with children with personal or behavioural difficulties and covering lessons in a range of secondary subjects.
As a result of my experience, I then went on to complete my teacher training at the University of Birmingham and gained a PGDipEd (QTS) qualification in science (specialising in A level chemistry).
I completed my NQT year at an inner city school in the West Midlands. During this year I was fully responsible for a triple science GCSE chemistry group as well as another GCSE science group. The Year 11 triple science chemistry class had not had a GCSE chemistry teacher for year 10 or year 9. Despite the odds, I dedicated my time and effort to bringing them up to speed with the subject and led them to successfully attain 40% A*-A, the highest percentage of A-A* achieved in the 2016 cohort across all subjects within the school. The class also achieved 90% A*-C. In addition to this, I also taught A level chemistry and tutored GCSE students in Coventry and Nuneaton during evenings and weekends.
I have worked in an outstanding school for the past year and a half, as part of a 3 person science team and I contributed to the Ofsted `Outstanding` judgement of the school. My department was praised in the Ofsted report for the following strengths: `The most able pupils, including most able disadvantaged pupils are challenged and supported to reach very high levels of attainment` and `high-quality teaching has led to many pupils having scientific understanding beyond that expected for their age`.
Altogether, I have over 5 years of teaching experience. My main goal is to offer quality and outstanding science tuition to young people. I am passionate about my subject and I hope to inspire young people with the same enthusiasm and love of science, as well as, helping them to gain a competitive GCSE or A level qualification.
Availability: Weekdays, evenings and weekends.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I am a qualified science teacher, specialising in chemistry. I completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Education and gained qualified teacher status at a highly respected training institution. This qualified me to teach science (including A level chemistry) to the 11-19 age range. I have worked in several inner city schools across the West Midlands with a variety of young people of different abilities and backgrounds.Contact this Tutor
I have taught the new AQA GCSE Science 9-1 specification and as a result I am very familiar with the content.
