I am a secondary school teacher, specialising in Science (Physics), and am also certified to teach English as a foreign language. I have recently completed my induction year of teaching as well as my TEFL course, including an introduction to teaching large classes and telephone teaching. Over the past two years I have enjoyed my experience in a range of schools and had the chance to teach all year groups between the ages of 11-18. In my teaching practice I try to inspire enthusiasm and interest for my subject. While practicals aren't possible outside the classroom, plenty of examples can be used to show applications of science to help students gain understanding. I use short exercises throughout lessons to check the student is making progress at all times. While teaching, I find it is especially important to support and encourage female students in STEM subjects, to ensure all students can reach their full potential and combat underrepresentation of women in STEM careers. One of my main strengths as a teacher is my subject knowledge: having read Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge I have studied a wide range of sciences, including Chemistry and Maths, to a high level, which enables me to explain phenomena from basic principles from a range of angles.
