A bit about Joanna G

I have experience teaching Year 5 through to Year 13 students. I can teach the curriculum for Eduqas (WJEC), AQA and OCR in Computer Science and BTEC, iGCSE for Information Technology. As a seasoned educator with a passion for computer science, I bring over 10 years of experience to the table. My journey began with setting up the Computer Science curriculum at my recent school, where I curated engaging resources that made learning both fun and insightful. Throughout my career, I've had the privilege of teaching computer science and IT to a diverse range of students, spanning from upper primary and beyond to GCSE level and sixth form. Witnessing my students' excitement as they delve into the subject is truly rewarding. My background extends beyond traditional classroom settings; I spent three years as an IT trainer, delivering tailored sessions to corporate clients on both bespoke systems and off-the-shelf packages. Additionally, I've honed my skills as a private tutor, adeptly conducting virtual lessons for groups of over 20 students while also providing personalized one-on-one support. Drawing from my previous experience as a specialist classroom assistant, I excel in adapting my teaching approach to suit individual learning styles. Whether it's guiding students through the intricacies of the Computing curriculum, unraveling the complexities of GCSE Computer Science theory, or mastering Python programming, I ensure concepts are explained clearly and comprehensibly. My teaching philosophy revolves around fostering an environment of curiosity and exploration, where students feel empowered to question, experiment, and ultimately, thrive. Patience, empathy, adaptability, and enthusiasm are the cornerstones of my interactions with students, fostering meaningful connections and nurturing a positive learning atmosphere. Beyond the classroom, I'm committed to continuous learning and staying abreast of the latest advancements in computer science. My ultimate goal is to empower students to succeed academically while instilling in them a lifelong love for learning. My teaching style is centered around crafting engaging and interactive lessons that cater to the individual needs of my students. I devote considerable time to lesson preparation, ensuring that each session is not only informative but also enjoyable. I believe in breaking down complex concepts into manageable chunks, accompanied by relevant and fun activities to reinforce learning. By incorporating practical applications and visual aids, I strive to make abstract ideas tangible and easily understandable for my students. Throughout the learning process, I actively engage with my students by asking questions to gauge their understanding and ensure clarity. For those preparing for exams, I provide targeted practice with actual exam questions, guiding students through the nuances of the mark scheme and examiner expectations. Despite maintaining a friendly and approachable demeanor, I hold high expectations for my students. I believe in fostering a supportive yet challenging learning environment where students are encouraged to strive for excellence and achieve their full potential. I enjoy a variety of activities that connect me with nature and ignite my imagination. While my skills in surfing, skiing, boxing, and tennis remain at a very amateur level, I derive great satisfaction from participating in these pursuits. Additionally, traveling holds a special allure for me, as each journey offers a unique adventure filled with diverse cultures and landscapes. My next destination on the horizon is India. During quieter moments, I appreciate the tranquility of countryside walks, scenic cycling routes, and invigorating cold water dips, often followed by a cozy stop at a coffee shop. I am an avid reader, particularly drawn to genres such as science fiction, historical fiction, fantasy, and thrillers. Engaging in discussions within my book club allows me to delve into reads I might not have otherwise explored. At home, I relish the opportunity to unwind by immersing myself in a compelling movie. Dining out at restaurants excites me, as I appreciate the opportunity to savor good food in different culinary settings. I also find joy in culinary creativity, especially when preparing meals for family gatherings, where laughter and shared moments make for cherished memories.
