We’re pleased to introduce you to our teaching staff.
I grew up and studied in central London.
I thoroughly enjoyed obtaining my BSc and PhD in Pharmacology at King’s College London. I also had the pleasure of working for two large pharmaceutical companies, GlaxoSmithKline (PA, USA) and Novartis (Horsham, UK) before returning to King’s as a postdoctoral researcher. It was during this period I can honestly say, I spent more time teaching undergraduates than doing my research, this is ultimately the reason I left and started teaching.
I have now been teaching Mathematics for two and a half years. I also have experience tutoring students one-to-one through to A level. Working with students in this way has meant that I am aware of topics that students typically struggle with and how best to help them overcome these problem areas. I take great pride in helping students to unlock the world of maths and science, and, importantly, build confidence in their abilities in these subjects.
When I am not teaching Mathematics or Science, you’ll find me teaching swimming or lindy hop or pottery classes instead.
I currently live in Tel Aviv, Israel, where I plan to study Hebrew and Arabic.
After many fantastic years working as a research scientist and following the birth of my first child, I trained to become a biology lecturer. I have taught science and maths since 2006 in primary and secondary schools, further education colleges and university. I currently also work part-time, as a University Teacher, at Cardiff University. For eight years I worked at the University of South Wales (formerly University of Wales, Newport), where I taught on the Initial Teacher Training, Secondary Science programme this enhanced my understanding of good teaching strategies in secondary science education. I have a lot of experience of working with children and adults with additional learning support needs and have spent many years working with learners who may need support accessing education as a result of physical disabilities.
I live with my family in the Wye Valley, on the English-Welsh border. I enjoy spending time in the countryside with my kids and dogs.
I was educated in Edinburgh before beginning an undergraduate degree at the University of Glasgow. In the latter years at Glasgow University I soon discovered his desire to enter the world of Education. After completing my degree I returned home to Edinburgh where I worked in the Special Needs sector before beginning my postgraduate study in Primary Education at the University of Edinburgh. I graduated from Edinburgh with a distinction in P.G.D.E. Primary.
After four and a half years teaching in the state sector in Scotland, I moved, to Auckand, New Zealand and was immediately appointed as a teacher and Curriculum Leader of Science and Information and Communication Technology at large independent school. During my time at the school I taught and developed many areas of the Cambridge International Curriculum. It was at this school where I was nominated for ‘A Day Made Good’ Award which aims to recognise exceptional teachers.
In 2007, 2011 and 2016 I traveled to Uganda to teach in a local, disadvantaged primary school in the outskirts of the capital city, Kampala. These visits not only included time in the classroom and sports field but also opportunities to collaborate with teachers and other professionals with the aim of improving teaching practice in the school.
In association with my visits to Uganda, I also run, support and manage a charity that supports local communities disadvantaged primary schools in Uganda. I took part in fundraising initiatives and visited a number of these schools in 2007, 2011 and 2016. My aim for the charity is to allow the primary schools in this region to become self-sufficient through community-run programmes which aim to generate an income to support schools.
After more than ten years of experience in the education profession I decided to further my career in establishing MyOnlineSchooling.com, with one simple aim: to improve the educational possibilities of young people, whoever they are and wherever they are in the world.
I have been working in primary education for the past two years and thoroughly enjoy my job. I love teaching and seeing young children gain confidence through education and learning. I am a very positive teacher and advocate the positive growth mindset learning style. I hope to make my lessons fun and engaging and allow children to learn without feeling as if they are doing work.
I have taught English and Media Studies, for ages 11 to 18, for five years, and am passionate about helping young people to understand and critically engage with the world around them, through analysis. My teaching experience began in rural Cornwall, working with students who often had limited experiences of the world outside the county, and I worked to help them gain valuable understanding of wider society. From here, my work has taken me to Buckinghamshire and on to Wales. My teaching philosophy is that we remember best when we have positive memories associated with the learning, so I always work to make lessons interesting and incorporate topics and subjects that students find engaging, and adapting my teaching style to suit the students’ needs. I also believe it is really important to emphasis and build on students’ successes, using verbal praise and rewards to help them understand their strengths.
I have been teaching for 4 years. After graduating in 2013, I moved to Melbourne and taught grade 6 for 2 years at a large comprehensive school. Most recently I taught in an alternative provision for students who have been excluded from mainstream education, and have qualifications in both dyslexia therapy and working with students with ASD. I am currently completing an MSc Psychology, and am looking forward to the flexibility online teaching can offer, whilst being very excited to experience a new, 21st century style of teaching!
I am a Geography and English as a Second Language teacher, with Geography as a primary passion. The Geography journey began in 2006 when I was introduced to speleology, becoming a cave mine leader instructing groups around local cave systems.
After completing the BSc degree in Geography at Bath Spa University I chose to move to Spain and train as a teacher the Professional Graduate in Education was achieved in 2090
After working extensively in the field of English as a Second Language with the Spanish Military and companies such as Santander and Siemens, a move was made to Dexway, where with the help of a global team of tutors both ‘flesh and bone’ and the human touch was created for the Dexway brand of Computer Based Learning. Whilst in this role of coaching and tutoring, assisting thousands of students to reach their goal, unique content for forums and the Dexway Magazine was written.
In 2014 I completed English teaching certificate and a submission was made of the BSc Dissertation to the speleology journal Cave and Karst Science
