I’m Neil Roscoe and I have taught Science and especially Biology for over 20 years. My degree is from the University of Leicester and I qualified to teach at the University of Sussex, in the UK. I most recently taught in an international School in Shanghai, China, before moving to Phuket and also in a number of private boarding schools, including Roedean, prior to that. I believe that every student has a number of talents or gifts (and this doesn’t necessarily mean being good at Maths). School is about finding what you really love to do, what gets you excited, and channeling these into a career or a way of earning a living, or perhaps even to change the World! This is why it is my pleasure to help HeadStart students into a suitable degree course to help hone these talents. If you are a sixth form student, I look forward to meeting you shortly and supporting you in your applications. When not teaching, I’m interested in travel and flying. I learned to fly small planes in the United States, which has brought many hours of fun. I also enjoy music and sometimes painting (watercolour), which can be a real source of relaxation. I look forward to another year at HeadStart and helping the students to find their niche in life. There are a number of crises the World is facing today, from climate change and habitat destruction, to war, poverty and global recession. HeadStart students will undoubtedly become some of the scientists, lawyers, economists and politicians we will need to find the solutions. We all have a part to play.
