My dynamic approach to teaching is evident in my ability to adapt to new cultures and surroundings. Economics is my passion but I have also taught Business Studies, A-Level Government and Politics, as well as IGCSE Travel & Tourism. Proficiency in ICT such as Microsoft Office Tools and Smart ActivBoard assists in my ability to assess and track pupil’s progress and plan effective, interesting lessons.
I am a passionate and energetic teaching professional who sets high academic and behavioural standards. I love my subject Business & Economics and strive to always deliver varied and interesting lessons to maximise the results for my students. Having developed my teaching practise since 2010 in some of the top performing schools in the UK, I have been able to ensure my subject knowledge and classroom management are the best possible. Consequently, I turned to the Middle East to seek new challenges. This has allowed me to strengthen my differentiation and leadership qualities further, to ensure I am a top asset for an innovative, caring school. Leading a small team of colleagues has taught me the importance of clear communication in relationship management. Furthermore, I have developed my own website and Blog which strengthens my relationship with students ((concealed information) and (concealed information)
Newton International School, Head of Business Studies Faculty. Doha, Qatar.
Upon relocating to the Middle East I have broadened my skill base by becoming a Head of Department in a large private International School in Doha, Qatar. My expertise in IGCSE and International AS level have been developed by teaching Business Studies, Economics and Travel & Tourism. Qatar’s unfamiliar culture called for added professionalism and dynamism to successfully plan and deliver the syllabus each year. My role entails formulating the Long Term Planning as well as identifying students for extra support in a Raising Attainment Plan. I also deliver varied and interesting case studies and relevant content across a range of visual and kinaesthetic platforms to help EAL children access the curriculum. I constantly emphasise key words from the syllabus in displays and workbooks to ensure students develop their academic lexicon. It was during this post I developed a website to ensure greater communication with students with a higher rate of absenteeism. Evidence of the high quality learning which I promote can be seen in the increase in A-A* at IGCSE Economics by 15% in June 2016.
Sir John Deane’s College – Business Studies & Economics teacher. Northwich, UK.
My main role consisted of teaching Edexcel Economics and AQA Applied Business Studies in a state funded Sixth Form College, which was positioned in the top ten highest achieving in the UK. Most importantly my objective was to ensure all students achieved above their Minimum Target Grade. In conjunction with a pastoral group I oversaw the A level academic development of nearly 150 pupils from various backgrounds. I was quick to settle into a department of five colleagues, one of the best performing departments in an Outstanding Ofsted rated school. Extra-curricular activities included setting up a Student Shares competition and implementing extra revision classes for exam preparation.
King’s School – Business Studies & Economics teacher. Macclesfield, UK.
My first teaching post involved the delivery of AQA Business studies, OCR Economics and Edexcel G&P to bright and enthusiastic AS/A2 privately funded students within a department of three colleagues. Expectations for maximum results were high and I thrived under the pressure. I also oversaw a pastoral group of 12 students delivering a range of pastoral care whilst assisting with UCAS applications. In addition, in my role of Learning Support Co-ordinator, I worked with students to complete their Extended Project Qualification which allowed me to work with really motivated students on a one-to-one basis, offering advice and guidance. Extracurricular responsibilities included running a school Student Investor competition, coordinating the Young Enterprise Business Challenge and managing an U14B rugby team. I accompanied School Trips to both Canada and Spain during this period which was great in fostering greater relationships with my students, outside of the classroom.
