About

I am a qualified Teacher of Mathematics with 5 years of teaching and private tutoring experience in the United Kingdom and in the Middle East. I am also a GCSE Mathematics examiner for Pearson Edexcel, and I have worked in both primary and secondary schools in mainstream and special educational needs settings. I have taught a wide range of students from the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stages 1-4.

 

I am passionate about children all over the world being confident in who they are. I encourage them to believe that they can achieve incredible things in every area of their lives by tackling problems fearlessly with boldness and capability. Teaching for me is more than mathematics education and my voice and presence as an educator is fundamental in ensuring that this transpires. In this safe space, your child will blossom, appreciate the ‘amazing-ness’ that mathematics is and cherish the privilege that is a quality education. I inspire my students to be curious individuals, eliciting epic discussions where their voice is not only heard, but valued. This doesn’t always occur in a classroom full of 30 students.

The best teachers are those who show you where to look but don’t tell you what to see.

My teaching style consists of three core elements:

1. Concretising school curriculum knowledge by providing an in-depth understanding of Number, Algebra, Geometry and Measures, Ratio and Proportion and Probability and Statistics and deepening understanding beyond the national curriculum

2. A holistic approach to learning; focusing on preparing students to meet any challenges they may face in life and in their academic career. 

3. Promoting an intellectual curiosity and love for mathematics through the exploration of engaging problem-solving activities, investigations, puzzles and challenging games.

My Recent Mathematics Results (2017-2019)

41% of my KS2 class were working at ‘greater depth’ in mathematics by the end of the academic year

24% of my higher ability KS3 class achieved above their predicted GCSE mathematics grades in their end of year assessment

91% of my middle ability GCSE class achieved above their predicted GCSE mathematics grades in their end of term autumn assessment

90% of my middle ability GCSE class achieved grade 4 (grade C) in GCSE mathematics or above in their end of year assessment.

I HAVE Experience with working with all different types of children, especially those who:

May have SEND or learning disabilities 

May lack concentration

May lack interest in mathematics

Have a lot of energy

Are enthusiastic about mathematics but need to execute exam techniques

Need to be stretched beyond the national curriculum
