    I am a native English-speaker based in Auckland, New Zealand specialising in educational resource development (predominately for science courses at primary and secondary school level), research and writing education-based articles. My qualifications include a Bachelor of Science (Biological Sciences) and two Teaching Diplomas: Graduate Diploma in Secondary School Teaching and Post Graduate Diploma in TESSOL (Teaching English in Schools to Speakers of Other Languages). I have ten years classroom experience and have held a number of different roles during this time including Head of Biological Sciences and Specialist Classroom Teacher. As HOD, I developed excellent management skills of both paperwork and people and also developed numerous courses and assessments for a variety of different topics within Science and Biology. During this time, I also completed my TESSOL Diploma as I am a passionate advocate for subject-based literacy and wanted to find ways to improve the literacy levels of my Science and Biology students. My position as Specialist Classroom Teacher is one that is only awarded to one teacher per school in New Zealand and is probably one of the highlights of my teaching career. It recognises pedagogical mastery in the classroom irrespective of subject. The role itself is one of mentorship, where one is expected to assist other staff members in their classroom practice/management. After leaving teaching, I completed a course in copy editing and proof-reading to consolidate my editing knowledge further, and provide my clients with a diverse range of skills. Since then I have also gone on to develop resources and for schools who teach IGCSE as well as resources for use in the BMAT (Biomedical Admissions Test). Each year, I also complete work for the New Zealand's Education Ministry as a national exam marker. This position requires excellent time management and organization, a skill which I bring to my Upwork jobs as well. I pride myself on accuracy, efficiency and will ensure your document is polished, free of errors and returned to you promptly. I look forward to being of service to you in the future.
