I am a qualified UK science teacher with experience teaching students aged 6-18 in a wide range of contexts - including in school, extracurricular clubs, summer camps and private tutoring.
At the end of each class, learners will be provided with a short document summarising the key learning and some additional practice questions. These questions are totally optional and will not be assessed. 
Learners should bring to each class: - Pen, pencil and lined paper - Calculator
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There is no formal assessment for this course, and so no letter grades or written reports will be given. I integrate informal assessment for learning activities throughout my classes, allowing me to continually assess students' progress and adapt my teaching to develop their understanding. 
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
