Tell us a bit about yourself.

I am a qualified teacher. I have a doctoral degree in Science from Manchester University. I have also obtained a Master’s degree, in Biomedical Science and a Bachelor’s degree (in Genetics ) from the University of Sheffield (UK). I completed a postgraduate course in education and gained my qualified teacher status from Manchester University. Currently, I am a science teacher in a UK mainstream school. My career has provided me with a rich variety of teaching opportunities. I have been involved in the teaching and training of undergraduate students in different science subjects including Biology, Chemistry, and Physics at both Sheffield and Manchester Universities. I have lots of experience teaching Key Stage 3, GCSE, and A-level pupils in both mainstream and private schools in the UK. I have taught Science subjects ( Physics, chemistry, and Biology) to Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5 students, preparing them for GCSE and A level exams.

How do your lessons usually plan out?

I always make sure my students have the prior knowledge required to understand a new topic. All of the topics in Science subjects are related and just get complicated as the students progress to a higher level. So it is essential for students to have a solid prior knowledge of the new topics they are learning. It is also essential to apply pupils knowledge to exam questions all the time to make sure that they know how to use key terminologies and answer those important questions in the exam. The mark scheme is quite specific for GCSE and A-level exams and the students often don't know how to answer the question properly despite having the knowledge. Therefore, it is vital that they practice exam questions after they have gained their knowledge with an experienced teacher to secure a high grade in exams. I practice this with my KS3 students as well so they get into the habit of how to use key terms to answer questions.

What exam boards and year groups do you teach?

I teach students in KS3, KS4, and KS5 levels. I teach all UK exam boards including AQA, OCR and Edexcel.
