ATAR Physics and Chemistry teacher for 11/12 students - former chemical engineer

Methodology

I use Explicit Direct Instruction. This means I cover the theory needed to answer certain questions, give an example then have the students attempt questions. I make sure to include combination questions. Exam questions often combine concepts from two separate units (i.e. Projectile Motion and Electrostatics for Physics 12 or Equilibrium and Acid/Base Units for Chemistry 12.) Also I make sure students are shown how to overcome the twists that are often in exam questions that are designed to throw students. I explain how they can work through these twists.

Background

I have been teaching in WA for over 10 years with a focus in both Chemistry and Physics. I am also excellent with high level Calculus and Algebra.
- Have had past students achieve 99.7 ATAR Physics scores on their WACE exams
- Have had 1/3rd of my Physics class achieve A on the Physics WACE exam
- Have had 1/4 of my Chemistry class achieve A on their Chemistry WACE exam
- Have studied both MOCK and WACE exams in great detail and know the trends and areas to focus on to maximise scores

Canning Vale College May 2018 – to date
• Taught ATAR Physics 12 and Chemistry 11, Extension Science 8, 10 and General Science 8, 9 classes
• Assigned the lower level Physics 12 classes, successfully shifting students from D’s up to C level, resulting in a large spike in C level students compared to previous years and other state schools

Australian Islamic College April 2014 – Dec. 2017
(AIC - Kewdale campus, WA)

• Taught Physics 11 and 12, Chemistry 11 and 12, Science 10 extension, Science 7,8 and 9
• Designed the programme, lesson plans, open and closed-ended investigations, research projects for the new 2015-2016 curriculum for Chemistry 11 and 12 as well as Physics 11, and 12
• In 2017, seven out of 20 of my Physics 12 students obtained A’s on their WACE exam (none of these students received tutoring outside of the school)
• In 2017, one of my Physics 12 students achieved a Physics ATAR score of 99.7 percentile without any additional outside tutoring
• In 2016, six out of 23 of my Physics 12 students obtained A’s on their WACE exam (none of these students received tutoring outside of the school)
• In 2016, five out of 20 of my Chemistry 12 students obtained A’s on their WACE exam during the first year of implementing a new programme.
• Excellent WACE exam results with students ranking well-above state in physics since 2013 with constant improvements in WACE exam results each year
• My lesson plans for the topic of Special Relativity were reviewed by Mr. John Moschilla of UWA who presented at a STAWA conference. He loved how I presented the topic and stated via email that he would be borrowing from my material.
