Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $22


I have over 8 years experience in the professional fields indicated above. I teach various disciplines of science up to G13 (AS/A level). I have been working as a freelancer since the end of 2012 and so I most definitely know the ropes, I was advised to investigate freelancing whilst drinking in bar in Bucharest! On my return to Barcelona I got started with e-lance / o-desk and have not looked back since (I moved back to the UK in early 2013).

I also have over 10 years’ experience of working in a voluntary capacity for several UK based...

Service Description

I am educated to post graduate level with an MSC/PGCE in science teaching and communication and my honours degree is in environmental science (chemistry). I teach and tutor astronomy, biology, biochemistry, chemistry, Earth and environmental science as well as nuclear physics to G13. Furthermore I teach GCSE (KS4 G10/11) physics and integrated science to KS3 (G9). In addition, because I have a solid understanding of politics, current affairs, history, modern history, international relations and the social sciences I am able to teach the humanities to KS 3 (G9). This knowledge has also proved invaluable in my voluntary, fundraising and campaigning activities. Finally, as I have taught abroad I am aware of and understand the needs of EAL/ESL students, my PGCE dissertation was entitled "learning to learn in an additional or second language"

Prior to embarking on a teaching career and then a subsequent move to freelance work I spent 10 years working in the UK charity/ NGO / not for profit sector. My duties and responsibilities ranged from administration and fundraising to communications and campaign management. I have worked with and on behalf most of the large UK medical charities as well as organisations such as Shelter, Action Aid, Save The Children and Water Aid. My formal qualifications have also helped immensely in terms working with more environmental and political organisations such as Greenpeace, FOE, WWF and the Soil Association. This experience has been gained in...
