About Tim Prichard
Over 30 Years of Experience in the Classroom
My experience as a teacher dates back to 1990 when I started teaching physics and chemistry across the age and ability range from year 7 to year 13. I have successfully taught all three sciences at GCSE and A level Physics and A level Chemistry.
I began my teaching career in south east London teaching in a huge state secondary school. I taught in this school for six years and consider it to be the position where I learned the “art” of teaching in a challenging environment.
I then left the UK and taught in a very prestigious private school in Bangkok, Thailand where I taught children from very privileged backgrounds including diplomat’s children and even the children of Asian royalty. I taught the International Baccalaureate to the higher level which was both interesting and challenging and I enjoyed this experience immensely.
I left Thailand and took up a position as the head of physics in a high performing ex-grammar school in Wiltshire. At this school I taught several high performing student’s physics who went on to study the sciences at Oxford and Cambridge.
My current position is as the head of a science faculty in Somerset where I have had the good fortune to work with some excellent and inspiring staff and children for the last 16 years. I tried and tested my GCSE science revision guide on my current classes to which the students have found extremely useful. Several students have gained grades 8 & 9 in the current system using materials I designed in my book.
