BEd, Post Primary Mathematics & Science

I have loved Maths for as long as I can remember. As a small child, I always loved numbers and shapes and as my journey progressed, so did my desire to learn more about the world of numbers and Mathematics. Naturally, this led me to study Mathematics throughout school and then eventually at degree level. I also found great reward from working with young people, and it was during a period of work in my community that I decided to combine my two major passions and make a difference through teaching. 

I have taught Maths for nine years to students of differing ages and abilities throughout Lower Secondary, GCSE and A level. I also have experience in marking for a UK exam board, which gives me further insight into what is expected from students in exams. My aim for my students is to become enthusiastic and confident learners of Maths. I want my students to feel supported – when we enjoy something and feel we have support, this is when the most productive learning can take place.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children. We love being outside and exploring the world around us – especially trips to the beach, enjoying the sea and the sand and collecting different types of shells. I also love to travel and experience other cultures.

I am looking forward to working with you and helping you achieve your best.
