Ms Paula O

Hi, I am a qualified computer science teacher working in an inner London state school. My career started by gaining my degree in early years psychology. This is a field in which I am extremely passionate and heavily experienced. I have worked largely with SEN EAL supporting kids on the autism spectrum, DCD ADHD and more. I then moved on to gain my PGDE in computer science to inspire children in accessing strong computing careers in our now digital world. I thoroughly enjoy working with our year 7 transition students and support students in settling in to secondary education. I have a strong skill set supporting students who have barriers in accessing their education and this is something I am passionate towards since studying my undergraduate and moving on to gain expertise in delivering digital learning. My goal is to support all students to excel and find a love for learning. Seeking both online and face to face tutoring for a range of KS3 Maths, English and GCSE computer science students.
