I have been a teacher in the private and international sector for the last 9 years and have also worked in a tutoring school. I have a Bachelor of Science
and a Master of Science from universities in the UK. I also have qualified teacher status. I have worked in state and private schools and my last position was at a prestigious international school in Manhattan. I have taught science to middle and high school students with a specialism in Biology
. I have worked in both public and private schools, with low ability and talented science students. The aspect I enjoyed the most in my career was the one to one and small group tutoring. Having been a professional gymnast as a child, I was mostly taught through tutoring.
I have vast experience at using up to date teaching techniques to address a range of learning styles. I am confident to work with both the gifted science students who are looking to maximize their potential as well as the struggling students who need a different approach and confidence building. I use technology to help develop interest and variety, including apps that can be a fun and convenient way for students to study.
I believe it is important to address each child’s specific needs and spend time looking at their overall performance, school management, interests, study skills
. I build good trusting relationships with my tutees and work to develop students with inquiring minds and an enjoyment for the sciences. Subject knowledge is one aspect to address but this must be combined with good application and excellent exam skills. I can work with both middle and high school students.
I always encourage feedback from both my students and parents, and will do my best to accommodate your needs.
I look forward to meeting with you and working together to reach your goals.
