As I started my teaching career in a 'special measures' school in Blackpool, more than anything, I relied on my self-made and carefully crafted resources to engage, entertain and teach those wonderful kids how to learn and achieve. Today, after qualifying as an 'outstanding' teacher, teaching full-time for four years and moving to Germany, I try my very best to replicate that mentality every single day. All resources are crafted to suit areas of either GCSE, A Level or the IB. Enjoy!
