TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught physics and general science at high school level for over 10 years now. I have also taught some maths and some electronics.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Student centered. I believe that it is essential for students to be able to play with physics, so a lot of my teaching resources are fun and practical based.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

A very lovely 'worlds best teacher' mug.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Studied all over the world in elementary school. Was lucky enough to experience schools in the States, Japan and China. I can back to the UK to study in high school, and I went to university to study physics in England as well.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Fan of Doctor Who, Star Trek, skiing, and soccer.
