About my Teaching
I find teaching to be very rewarding; I am passionate about teaching Mathematics and helping pupils improve their understanding. My continued study and has given me a broad knowledge of Mathematics, how it is used, and how it is taught. I believe everyone is different and learns differently, so I adapt to what works for my pupils. I think it is important to be comfortable with a topic before moving to a new one and to know how topics connects to each other.
I completed my PGCE at Newcastle University under an Institute of Mathematics and its Applications Mathematics Teacher Training Scholarship.
