More about me.

I have been a Science teacher for ten years and a police officer for around ten years prior to that. I have taught all ages of Secondary school from Key Stage 3 (Years 7-9), through GCSE to A-Level. My speciality and first love is Biology, but I have experience teaching both Chemistry and Physics to GCSE level.

My previous experience has enabled me to develop superb communication skills when it comes to talking to both students and parents; I know how to deliver information in a concise and clear manner. I also have three children, so I know the difficulties, barriers and motivations that can help facilitate excellent learning.

During a lesson with me, students can expect to be asked plenty of targeted questions at an appropriate level that will demonstrate their level of understanding, or stretch and stimulate them to answer further. I don’t give answers, but help my students to come to the answer themselves. I love to use humour in lessons and feel that creating a relaxed but focused learning environment is the perfect balance for enabling students to maximise their learning. I am passionate about showing students how to learn effectively – I was never taught this when I went to school, but I now have a real understanding of what is (and perhaps more importantly, what is not) good practice.
