TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Teaching since 2011

MY TEACHING STYLE

I do not have a fixed 'style' and I think that's quite important. To be a truly effective teacher you'll need to be flexible and adapt to the specific needs and learning preferences of your teaching groups. Not to mention certain teaching styles lend themselves better to particular topics within Mathematics. As a general rule though: keep things highly interactive!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Educated in Great Britain: GCSE: 6 A*, 3 A; A Levels: 2 A, 1 B; University: First class BSc Honours degree

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My resources are a huge hit among my colleagues (and students!), so I thought it was time to share them with the world. I'm a bit of a perfectionist - a lot of time goes into creating a well-presented, easy-to-use and effective resource. But I consider it time well spent when I know the finished product can be used time and time again and receive the same excited reception each time!
