(Chemistry GCSE & A-level) (Physics & Biology GCSE) (Science KS2 & KS3)
I am a qualified secondary science teacher with extensive tutoring experience. Currently, I am working in Research & Development as a Product Stewardship & Regulatory Affairs Chemist. As a result of my background as a professional Chemist, I have hands-on experience in the Chemical industry as well as the theoretical knowledge required to teach. Although I am working full-time, I still work closely with secondary schools as an ambassador to help promote scientific subjects. I am still tutoring because I love sharing my passion of Chemistry with people and would like to continue to inspire young people into the fantastic world of Science!
My lessons usually look like a 3 course menu! Starter: We will look at something to pique your interest into the subject we are about to learn, as well as finding out your prior knowledge. This will help me to understand what level you are on and adapt my lesson accordingly. Main: The body of the lesson will focus on learning the new concept/s and will include a lot of questions to get you thinking and test your understanding as we go along. Again, depending on what kind of learner you are, my lessons will be varied. For example, if you are a visual learner, we will have diagrams, videos, etc, where as, if you are a verbal learner, we will focus on key words, speaking more about the subject and making notes. Dessert: This is the fun part where we find out how much you really have learned and will usually involve some type of informal assessment such as a quiz or game. I will always set you with a task to prepare for the next lesson and give you an opportunity to ask any questions though-out the lesson. Exam preparation is also important and can be the main focus of our lesson/s if required.
My students love the real-life examples I use to explain scientific concepts as they are quite relatable and often somewhat humorous! I like to have very interactive lessons in which the students are participating rather than listening to me talking for hours!
Fitness- I am a big fan of strength training! Cooking! Travelling!
This session was very helpful to me because the ionisation energies topic was explained in many different ways to help improve my understanding. The visual diagrams also allowed me to apply my knowledge to the exam questions in an easier way. :)
