After taking a Maths degree and a PGCE I taught initially for many years as a secondary Maths teacher. I have also taught Maths in a local Primary school, to undergraduates and on Family Numeracy courses. All these experiences have helped my understanding as to how people learn and respond particularly to Mathematics. In my teaching I like to look at ways to improve problems solving skills including use of games and puzzles. I also like to encourage group activities where students can discuss their understanding and share skills.
I have taught for the Health Needs Education service where I enjoyed the challenge of teaching many subjects and adapting the delivery for the students’ needs.
I have taught at Lenerjo for 4 years where I teach Mathematics, Geography and Art and Design.
