Miss Sandhu joined Cambridge Tutors College in early September 2004 and is a Tutor in our Chemistry Department. She joined us with over 17 years of teaching experience at a number of Schools around the Croydon area.
Miss Sandhu started her academic journey at Bombay University, where she studied Chemistry. She completed her BSc with 1st Class Honours, an extremely impressive achievement. Upon completing her degree, Miss Sandhu decided to move into teaching. She enrolled at St. Xavier’s Institute of Education, Bombay, where she studied her Bachelor of Education completing her B.Ed and again gaining a 1st Class honours.
Upon completion of her studies, Miss Sandhu moved over to the UK and began teaching. She took her first role at Virgo Fidelis Convent School, where she taught Chemistry for 13 years and honed her teaching skills.
With over a decade of teaching experience, she decided that she wanted a new challenge. Miss Sandhu then took a teaching role at Old Palace of John Whitgift School, where she taught for four years. Whilst there she was a part of the Gifted and Talented Student Programme and assisted with the Oxbridge Preparations Programme.
In 2004, we welcomed Miss Sandhu to CTC London and to the Chemistry department. Since her arrival, she has become an instrumental part of the college family and success of the students who have attended.
Outside of teaching at CTC London, Miss Sandhu tutors junior school students (ages 5-11) to help improve their Maths and Reading skills. She also enjoys keeping her mind active by solving Sudoku puzzles!
“I feel fortunate to be able to teach students from so many different countries and different cultures, it is amazing to see how they all work and learn in harmony. Class sizes are small and students are encouraged to achieve their full potential. I am passionate about my subject and it is very fulfilling to teach students who want to learn and achieve their goals.”
