Experienced in helping gain scholarships to top UK schools
I have been working in education for 6 years and I have spent 4 years as Head of Science at Kenton College, a top achieving preparatory school in Nairobi, Kenya, working with children of all ability levels to achieve their best in Science.
Over 40% of exams (Biology, Physics and Chemistry) taken by my students were A grades at Common Entrance.
I tutored a number of students, helping them to gain scholarships to top British schools such as Eton, Malvern College, Cheltenham Ladies, Ampleforth and various others.
I like to apply the subject material to real life situations in order to help students understand. I am keen on active teaching methods, however, I also believe that past paper and exam technique practice is very valuable. Most recently, I have been working to improve standards of teaching in Sierra Leone, West Africa.
I am available for tutoring of Common Entrance and Key Stage 3, GCSE Science, as well as A-Level biology. I am also competent in any subject at primary level.
I also have a keen interest in reducing children's stress levels, which are often very high due to school-related pressures. I ran a stress relief group for 10-11 year olds last year and would be keen to teach children some practical techniques for reducing stress.
