Soon after completing my PGCE, I was selected as an Advanced Skills Teacher for my skills in teaching children with different abilities. Nominated and selected as a Specialist Leader in Education by the National College, I am widely experienced with pupils from diverse backgrounds and different academic abilities and hold a track record of achieving outstanding results.
I have lead Maths and English across various schools ; pupils have achieved accelerated progress. I have taught Maths using different Schemes such as ‘Maths Makes Sense’ and White Rose Maths’ .
I am confident with Pearson, AQA and Edexcel boards and have helped children achieve Levels 8 and 9 in their GCSE. I have taught texts in Literature such as ‘A Christmas Carol, Jekyll and Hyde, Plays of Shakespeare , An Inspector Calls ,Animal Farm besides other texts and know how to prepare students for exemplary answers in Language Paper 1 and 2.
