I’m a fully Qualified Teacher with a BSc in Pure and Applied Chemistry.
I hold a Bachelors Degree in Pure and Applied Chemistry, a Diploma in Science Education and Qualified Teaching Status in the UK. I join Sophia as a Sequoia Tutor with over 15 years experience as a science teacher, tutor and over 10 years as an assistant examiner. I am knowledgeable in the requirements of the examination boards in the UK, with a specialism in AQA and EdExcel and I am a lifelong student of the sciences. My primary focus as a tutor is to make the lessons engaging and to build the confidence of my students. I use strategies that will equip students with the skills that make them strong independent learners and as result are able to attempt new and novel problem situations that prepare them adequately for various assessments, examinations and lifelong learning.
Outside of teaching and working with students, I enjoy listening and cataloguing music, traveling locally and internationally and exploring different cultures.
