Tutor & Teacher of Science (all levels) with wide experience
My name is Lemma Jembere and I have been interested and passionate about teaching for many years. I taught all subjects in schools but mainly Science before graduating. I graduated from Education Faculty at a degree level and received Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Biology (major) and Chemistry (minor) from Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia in 1983. I taught mainly Chemistry and Biology for 7 years overseas. After I came to UK, I studied for 2 years (part-time) and successfully completed Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) course in July 2013 at The Institute Of Education (London,UK).I was working and studying at the same time and managed to complete my course papers in September (deadline was for July) after making a request for extension for re-submission of the papers. I received the certificate that I passed all modules in November 2013.
I have gained transferable skills from working in schools & colleges, advice and counselling, research and volunteering where I helped the family where English is their second language and their children who were doing Access course and at Sixth form college.Education has impacted positively my personal, social,intellectual and working life. It has enabled me to have a better insight to self and to respect others; to look into the world around me from different but objective and critical perspectives. Hence, I would like to share my interest, enthusiasm, knowledge and many years of experience in teaching and related skills to make a difference in the learning and teaching process. Besides, I am competent in using smart board, Microsoft Office including power point presentation and accessing web based teaching resources to mention the few.
I am a perennial learner and keen to study and learn so that I will be more effective and efficient to make the highest impact in the learning and teaching process of individual learner(s) by using different but relevant resources, approaches and methods. Each learner’s learning experience in the class room or at home is different. Some learn better if the lesson is supplemented with pictures or images but others learn more by doing and experiencing for themselves. Moreover, I believe well prepared lesson plan enhances the learning and teaching process and contributes in managing and enhancing one to one tutoring experience focused and interesting.. Finally, I have a valid DBS certificate and registered with DBS-update service and capable to teach and tutor Science, Chemistry and Biology at all levels.
