I am a teacher with 25 years of teaching experience, at College in the U.K., State schools in the U.K., a Private school in FL and home tutoring. I am certified to teach in the U.K., FL and TX (fingerprint and FBI checks done). I am currently employed by Mckinney ISD as a substitute teacher, teaching from elementary to high school.
I have a degree in Chemistry BSc.Hons, with a minor in Biology and I have a post graduate certificate in education (Masters).
My discipline is Science, I have taught many subjects; Chemistry, Biology, Human Biology, Biochemistry, Organic Chemistry, Life Science, General Science, Anatomy and Physiology, Cosmetology, Electrical treatments (beauty therapy) and Hairdressing Science.
I have taught students from the ages of 8-80 years of age.
When tutoring I work closely with the students needs, initially having a discussion with the student to determine their concerns with the subject matter, then review that area with them and work through problems/tests/quizzes on that material and leave them homework to complete for the following session. I like to keep a strong tutor/parent bond ( when necessary), to ensure that parents are kept involved with proposed solutions to any learning difficulties.
I am a happy and cheerful person, an enthusiastic and committed teacher, I use the approach learning is fun techniques to inspire students to have enjoyment whilst still delivering results.
I can supply up to date references (07/2010) upon request.
