Experienced and qualified science teacher (Zoology graduate) looking to help students achieve.

Methodology

As a tutor, I like to have a first session with the student themselves and at least one parent, so I can understand what the aims and objectives of tuition are. I would need to ascertain the board being studied, and the strengths and weaknesses of the student so that we can then approach our sessions in an individualised manner.

Experience

I started teaching in 2005, and have spent the last 13 years teaching students of all ages in a range of schools.
As a private tutor I have worked with many different students, many of whom have gone onto achieve increased grades and won university places.
I have taught all sciences up to GCSE and Biology to A Level. I have also taught Science to Common Entrance (13+) in the past.

Michael's CV

Work Experience

- St Saviour’s and St Olaves School, Southwark. Director of Learning (Year 7) and Secondary Transition Manager. 2017
My areas of responsibility involved monitoring the pastoral wellbeing of the students in my year group as well as coordinating the new intake for the following academic year. I lead a team of tutors as well as pastoral support staff. I was a key point of contact for all safeguarding and child safety concerns, some of which require fast and professional communications with a range of external agencies, including social services, the NHS and the police.

- St Mark’s Academy, Mitcham. Head of Science. 2015 - 2016
I was responsible for rebuilding the teaching staff in the science department after a period of instability that had left the quality of teaching damaged. I also had to ensure a smooth transition to new schemes of work and examination systems for both A Levels and GCSEs during my time here. I held overall responsibility for the departmental budget and was accountable for the quality of teaching and learning.

- Harris Federation, London (Head of Science, NQT Coordinator, Head of KS4 Science). 2012-2015
During my time in the Federation I took on a number of roles. Highlights include successfully supporting a large cohort of NQTs through their induction year, positive exam results at A level Biology and playing a part in school improvement programmes that extended across the whole Federation. I was GCSE lead in a department that achieved a doubling of the pass rate.

- Chinthurst Preparatory School, Tadworth. Head of Science. 2010 - 2012
I was the lead Science teacher and had extensive success with students making their first choice senior schools, some with a range of scholarships. I also helped with the extra-curricular aspects of school life, including sports.

- Tolworth Girls’ School, Surbiton. Science Teacher. 2005 - 2010
I had a successful time teaching here. As well as supporting some of the lower ability classes through their Science GCSEs I also worked as Assistant Head of Year 11 and KS3 Science Coordinator. This last role coincided with the removal of KS3 SATs by the Government and a key part of my role was the preparation and roll out of the new assessment model.

- PPD Development, Cambridge. Medical Report Writer. 2003 - 2004
I worked for a range of client companies preparing reports from all phases of medical research. Some therapeutic areas I worked on included diabetes and cancer treatments. One key study was a phase III oncology trial testing a new chemotherapy drug against a range of cancers. I wrote one of the study reports that helped it pass to the final regulatory stages.

- Chiltern International Ltd, Slough. Medical Report Writer. 2001-2003
I worked for a range of companies preparing reports for phase I to III trials. I also worked on successful proposals for new clients. Some of the therapeutic areas I worked on included thalassemias, diabetes, contraception and chronic pain relief. I spent some time seconded to a client company in central London when there were issues with the study analyses and report. The client requested me in person as they had been impressed with some assistance I had provided to the project’s lead writer.

Education

- 2004-2005, Oxford Brookes University. PGCE, Secondary Science. I completed placements at two very different schools as well as a range of academic assignments and group projects, often to challenging deadlines.

- 1998-2001, University of Liverpool. BSc (Hons), Zoology, 2:1. My dissertation was on the transmission dynamics of a zoonosis (cowpox virus) amongst its wild reservoir populations. My work was used as the starting point for a wider study.

- 1991-1998, Matthew Arnold School, Oxford. A Levels (Biology, Chemistry, Physics); GCSEs (10 A*-C including English, Mathematics and Double Science). I was elected Deputy Head Boy by my peers. As part of my work in this role, I helped with the introduction of a peer mentoring and counselling scheme to help with a bullying problem lower down in the school.
