I will give lessons to GCSE and A-Level students, as well as Key Stage 3 students who are preparing for their GCSEs.
I will use a variety of resources during my teaching, from worksheets to textbooks which would be the books used by pupils in school as to make everything cohesive.
I am a recent graduate from Teesside University. The degree I hold is in Forensic Science, which I enjoyed studying very much. I have worked in a secondary school science department from 2017 to 2018. I have taught classes between 20 and 30 pupils with the help of the main classroom teacher. During my time working at the school I have been able to see different teaching methods and develop my own.
