I have been teaching science to a range of abilities for over 12 years. This, coupled with middle and senior leadership experience, has provided me with the expertise to produce concise and engaging lessons. I specialise in Biology at GSCE, but produce resources for all strands of science at KS3 and KS4. I have been focusing on the AQA Grade 9-1 GCSE Trilogy, to create learning and revision resources that match the current specification.
