Brief Biography

I have experience teaching a wide range of subjects including Chemistry, Physics and Junior Science. I spent many years as a Head of Science in a high school and I am passionate about teaching and lifelong learning.

I am aware of the need for quality teaching and I promote a quality teaching environment. As part of this, I have high expectations of my students and I offer extension activities to address their strengths and talents. I make sure my lessons are well-planned while giving importance to a variety of learning strategies.

I develop and implement strategies, which allow students to further develop skills, grow knowledge and increase understanding of the topic being studied. I always use a wide range of practical activities, which are interesting and enjoyable for junior students with the aim of developing a comprehensive level of both skill and knowledge in Science. I aim for the development of students as independent workers and encourage them to achieve their full potential.
