I am an English speaking Mathematics teacher from the UK, and I have lived in various places around England, Germany and Northern Ireland as my family is part of the British Military. Outside of school I am interested in sports, particularly rugby, golf and cricket but I have expanded my interests to football, badminton and wakeboarding since living in Thailand. I chose to study Mathematics at Portsmouth University, where I spent my summers as an Activity Manager for Italian school students. I enjoyed working with young people and I realised my passion for teaching, returning to Portsmouth University to qualify as a Teacher of Mathematics. Since then, I have enjoyed teaching Mathematics at GCSE and A-Level at two contrasting schools where I have had the chance to enhance and vary my teaching styles. Good skills in Mathematics are important in day-to-day life and I believe students can progress quickest with a varied approach to learning. I am proud that this year I am leading the Faculty of Mathematics, which has excellent teaching staff within. I am hugely excited to be continuing my career at HeadStart and look forward to further contributing to the success of the students at the school.
