I am a fully qualified mathematics teacher (QTS). I successfully completed the outstanding* PGDipEd teacher training programme at the University of Birmingham in 2016. The course develops a deep understanding of the issues and complexities surrounding the teaching and learning of mathematics.
Following my teacher training, I completed my NQT Induction Year at the outstanding* Joseph Chamberlain Sixth Form College. During this academic year I worked closely with a wide range of students on tasks from GCSE and A Level mathematics courses. Completing this year means I have the required qualifications to work as a fully qualified teacher in England and Wales.
Alongside my PhD research at Cardiff University during the last two academic years I have delivered tutorials for several mathematics modules of the university's undergraduate programme. I have thoroughly enjoyed this work and hope to build upon this experience in future.
Throughout the 2019-2020 academic year I am greatly looking forward to working as a guest teacher at the world famous London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). My role includes preparing and delivering sessions to undergraduate students covering topics including analysis, complex numbers, linear algebra and optimisation.
I love mathematics but can also relate to learners who find the subject frustrating and pointless due to the way it is usually taught in most schools. The constant examination pressure facing students does not encourage deep mathematical understanding and can be a barrier to developing their love for this critical subject. Despite these difficulties, my mantra as an educator is that everyone can be a mathematician!
