I love learning and making learning fun, and I combine this with an understanding of the best evidence-based practices in pedagogy and metacognition. Variety in lessons, challenging activities, real-world problem solving and fun facts develop curiosity and perseverance, whilst study skills, question practice and exam advice provide excellent preparation for GCSE, A level and IB qualifications. For younger students, personal projects allow exploration and discovery. If needed, lessons can be guided by the school curriculum or homework support.
For 20 years, I have been teaching in schools around the world. My PGCE and Masters in Education are from the University of Cambridge. I have taught a variety of subjects and, though my specialism is Biology, I enjoy teaching all sciences and maths too - my love of numbers is contagious! Having lived for over a decade in Spanish-speaking countries, I am fluent in Spanish and will happily help to support you in gaining confidence in this language. My experience teaching and working alongside EFL students also allows me to support English-language learners.
If a lesson is cancelled no more than 24h prior, the lesson will be charged.
If a lesson is cancelled between 24-48h prior, 50% of the lesson fee will be charged.
In either of the above cases, all efforts will be made to find an alternative available time for the lesson in the following 6 days, however, this cannot be guaranteed.
