Head of Secondary Mathematics


I have been living in China for over 16 years now, and it is with great pleasure that I continue to work at BSG as Head of Secondary Mathematics. Our mission for our students is simple: to be able to work out what to do when you don’t know what to do. This is mathematical problem solving at its heart. Rote learning and memorisation, whilst will get you that level 8 at GCSE, it won’t get you a 9. Whilst it will get you an A at A-Level, it won’t get you an A*. It is the core of our beliefs in the Mathematics Department, and serves our students well in their time at BSG, and in the future years to come. 

In my free time, I love spending time with my family. My daughters are also enrolled at BSG in Year 6, and in Reception, and are loving their learning experiences. I also enjoy exercising, especially swimming, running, and cycling; I am always training for the next Ironman challenge! In that little time remaining, I enjoy playing music on the guitar.
