I have taught Mathematics, Math Methods - Teacher Ed, Computer Science, ESL a.o. in South Africa, China, and the US. I mostly taught middle school, high school, and college level.
I have many different hats I can put on, it really depends on the students, objectives, context :)

I am an internationally-experienced educator and developer with broad expertise in computer science and mathematics education. With my technical background and the emphasis of my Ph.D. on teachers and technology, my goal is to make a significant contribution to mathematics education through the innovative use of technologies. Throughout my tertiary education and professional experience, I have become skilled at a range of programming languages, development methodologies, and environments. The latter-day focus of my career has been on understanding the macro-level challenges of our educational paradigm and Western thought, as well as the micro-level, nuanced practicalities that our teachers and students face daily. During this time, I continue to stay abreast of innovative technologies, platforms, and languages, specifically mobile technologies and free, scalable resources as shown in my dissertation study.

I am originally from Johannesburg, South Africa where I used to be a Maths teacher at a high school in Krugersdorp. Before that I worked in China for a year mainly teaching English and Mathematics. I enjoy teaching and working with school children not only in the classroom but also on the sports field.
