As a fully qualified science and Maths teacher, I have over 20 years' of teaching in the UK and have successfully taught children from all backgrounds. I have a lot of experience teaching online, in the classroom, and also on one-to-one basis, the following subjects up to GCSE and IGCSE levels:
- Physics
- Chemistry

I have extensive experience of teaching/ tutoring the Sciences and Mathematics from KS1-KS5 including 7+, 11+, 13+, Scholarship Exams, GCSE/IGCSE and A-Levels. I was the former numeracy coordinator at Rokeby School; a leading independent preparatory school for boys near Kingston. I ensured that all students, including those with SEN and additional needs including Dyslexia, Autism, Dyscalculia, ADHD had full access to the Mathematics curriculum. Indeed, my students' success rate was 100 percent A* -B 13+, including 4 scholarships to Westminster Boys.

I have substantial experience teaching pupils with SEN and additional needs including those with Dyslexia, Autism, Dyscalculia, ADHD as well as EBD. I have always been aware of the constant need to differentiate learning and present students with SEN and those with Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, ADHD/ ADD etc. with short and manageable tasks that could be learned, repeated or managed to reinforce learning. That way, a child with additional needs or a short attention span, for that matter, is able to complete the task and receive feedback, before moving on to the next task. The child may also need to have the task revisited to reinforce consistency and understanding.

Over the years, I have found the role of a Maths teacher to be very fulfilling, especially when I see my students build self-confidence and self-esteem, make progress, and get good results in their examinations such as their 11-plus exams or GCSEs.

Though every learner has been unique, I believe that they all share something in common namely, the need to overcome barriers and begin to enjoy learning. To this end, part of my strategy is to enable students to build their self-confidence. I do so through enabling them to achieve, identifying and praising their effort and achievement, and setting achievable goals and targets.

I have an excellent track record for maintaining a high standard of management portfolios as consultant educationists, through cautious approach to due diligence and rigorous application of knowledge, technical and fundamental analysis. I am a good communicator with a high level of IT skills; both practical and theoretical knowledge, and would like to bring these performance-enhancement skills into this field of work.

Recent quotes from clients/parents:
“Hi Obeng, tried calling you to let you know the good news. We heard over the weekend that Dan got offered a pace at UCS. Thanks again for your efforts in helping to prepare for his assessment. Regards Gary”
“Hi Mr De Lawrence, just to let you know that Isa got A in her Physics GCSE, and Bs in Biology and Chemistry. She is delighted! Many thanks for all your help. I hope that you had a good summer. Best regards, TM-Dare.”

My Teaching Philosophy

Every child is different:
1. Get to know the learner;
2. Identify areas of strength as well as address barriers to learning;
3. Make learning accessible and enjoyable;
4 Praise achievement, thereby enabling the learner build self esteem;
5. Engage Parents or carers in the process, providing feedback where necessary.
