I studied Medicine at Barts and The Royal London School of Medicine and Dentistry and graduated in 2005. I worked as a doctor for 8 years. I specialised in Histopathology (the study of cells and tissues) and worked as a Specialist Trainee in this field for 6 years. I decided to have a career change and re-trained as a teacher, attaining a PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) specialising in Biology, a few years ago.
I have since worked in three schools (one Grammar school, one Academy and one Sixth Form College) teaching Science at Key Stage 3 and Biology at Key Stage 4 and A-level. My current place of work is a Sixth Form college and is one of the most successful Sixth form-only centres in the UK. I have taught OCR, AQA and Edexcel science courses.
My speciality is the Human Biology side of the curriculum (for obvious reasons!) and with the content of A-level Biology comprising a great deal of medically-related topics, this is a great advantage for me and those I teach. My histopathology experience particularly comes in handy when teaching histology (a huge amount of microscope work is included in the OCR specification I currently teach), anatomy and physiological body processes.
I am enthusiastic about science, in particular Biology, and feel as though I have the ability to make quite complex processes appear simple. I have a friendly and encouraging manner, with a 100% Good/Outstanding record in lesson observations in my teaching career.
Excellent !! Very friendly and explains things in a way that everything just falls into place ! Can't praise her enough . Looking forward to my next lesson !
My daughter has had a few lessons with Kirat and is certainly felling the benefit. She lives her style of teaching.
