Growing up Oscar was a keen Rugby player and won a Rugby scholarship to a prestigious independent school for 6th form and was playing regional level Rugby. After finishing 6th form Oscar went on to Loughborough University to read a B.Sc. Joint Honours in Chemistry and Sports Science. During this time Oscar was also fortunate enough to spend a summer season working in the USA as a Rugby coach with young people. Upon finishing his Oscar decided to pursue a career in teaching having developed a real passion for working with young people.
Oscar was accepted onto his PGCE, which he completed in Secondary Science with a specialism in Chemistry from St Mary’s University College. Oscar’s performance throughout his PGCE training was exemplary and he achieved a summative grade of ‘outstanding’ due to his excellent work in both his placements.
Oscar’s particular strength lies in his ability to plan very personalised lessons, which focus on the individual needs of the students. He is able to adapt the learning method to suit his students, particularly those with special educational needs such as dyslexia. In 2015 he took up his first teaching post at The Matthew Arnold School and was instrumental in its transformation. The most recent Ofsted report commented on ‘outstanding improvement’ made within the Science Department.
Since then, Oscar was asked to work at a prestigious independent school in Weybridge, where he continues to inspire the next generation of scientists!
“Oscar’s been brilliant. Clear, patient and interesting. My daughter has come such a long way with him. Thank you.” Jon, Hammersmith
