Head of Computer Science and ICT at successful over-subscribed school in West London

Methodology

I tailor my classes to the student and course being taught. I regularly evaluate both my own and my staffs' teaching to ensure that we are using the most effective pedagogical strategies for our students for the best possible outcomes for all students. This may include visual, aural methods as well as utilising web and app based tools. For example, I find that teaching the Fetch-Decode-Execute cycle is best taught using an animation and Q&A so that students can follow the cycle as it proceeds through the registers and other components.

Background

I am Head of Computer Science and ICT at a very successful school. I oversee and teach classes from KS3 to GCSE to A Level. I hold a BSC (Hons) Computer Science degree and have worked in industry, including IBM.
