British International School Bratislava_13SM Tutor & Mathematics Teacher_Hillary Ballantine

13HB Tutor & Mathematics Teacher

I graduated with a BSc in Mathematics and Statistics and followed this by completing my PGCE and Diploma in Education, all at Edinburgh University, UK.

I am part of the Mathematics Department at BISB and love to share my passion for Mathematics with the students. I have recently completed eight years teaching in Brunei and Oman and prior to this worked for many years at an independent school in Edinburgh where I was Head of Mathematics.

My husband and I are avid travelers and enjoy walking, camping, cycling and diving. In any spare time at home I like to read, cook and listen to music. I am relishing the opportunity to be back in Europe getting to know Slovakia and neighboring countries with which I am not yet familiar.
