Veteran teacher looking for ambitious and focused students to learn high school sciences.

Methodology

I assess the students' weakness and teach specifically to 'fill the gaps', geared to understanding and mastery. Project-based learning is practiced wherever possible. Classes are a mix of theory and practical experience. Students are preparing to apply to university or college.

Background

I have been teaching high school sciences and maths since 1981, including chemistry, biology and physics and math 10, 11 and 12. Since 2006, I have been teaching in China, adding ESL to my repertoire. Since 2013, I have also been an administrator.
