I have been teaching Science for 8 years now and the last 7 have been in British International Schools in Mexico and Spain. My specialism is Biology but I currently teach Biology and Chemistry to AS Level. Most of my resources are EAL/ESL focussed as the majority of my pupils do not have English as a mother tongue. I am selling resources for KS3 Science and IGCSE Biology. I continue to upload many resources for free (those that have taken me less time or those with copyright restrictions)
