Mrs Anne Hanzal

Physics

BSc Honours (London University, Westfield College), PGCE (London University)

Mrs Hanzal joined Cambridge Tutors College in 2009 and is a Tutor in our Physics Department. She has over 44 years of experience of teaching Physics at A-Level and GCSE levels in both State and Private schools.

During her 44 years of teaching, Mrs Hanzal has been a Head of Physics for 32 of those years, an Examinations Officer for 10 years and Head of Science for 2 years before coming to us at CTC. With the wealth of experience that she has, Mrs Hanzal is an exceptional addition to the teaching staff.

Mrs Hanzal graduated from London University, Westfield College achieving a BSc with Honours in Physics. While studying there she met her husband who was a PhD Student studying High-Energy Physics. Following on from completing her studies, Mrs Hanzal began teaching Physics at Whitefield School. While teaching there, she then began studying her PGCE part time at London University.

After 4 years at Whitefield school, Mrs Hanzal then became Head of Physics at Purley Girls High school, where she was responsible for not only teaching her classes but for the department as a whole. She then became Head of Sciences at Croham Hurst School before joining us here at CTC London to teach Physics at A-Level.

Outside of teaching, Mrs Hanzal loves to sing and has joined the College Choir as well as singing with the Pop Choir. She also often goes to concerts and the theatre, as the likes of The O2 and the famous West End are an easy journey! In her spare time, Mrs Hanzal enjoys taking Zumba classes, staying fit with Body Combat classes at her local gym and always has a jigsaw on the go on her dining room table.

We are very lucky to have Mrs Hanzal as she could have retired in 2013 after 40 years of teaching. She has said her love for her job made her decide to stay on part time to continue teaching the students of CTC London.

“I love teaching my pupils; they are so keen, interested and well-motivated to succeed. It gives me such a great feeling of satisfaction watching them develop and head off to top universities.”
