Carmen Leong

Jia Wen (Carmen) Leong

Mathematics Teacher

Jia Wen (Carmen) Leong

MA (Hons), MA, PGCE

Carmen graduated from The University of Edinburgh in 2013 with a Master of Arts in Mathematics, where she spent her final year on a research project on the Japanese Temple Geometry – “Sangaku”. She then completed a Master of Arts in Mathematics Education in the Institute of Education before obtaining a PGCE (Secondary) in Mathematics at King’s College London in 2015. After the teacher training course in the UK, she taught in Brunei for five years as part of her education bond because she was awarded a full scholarship by the Government of Brunei to study in the UK. Carmen is a trilingual, growing up from birth in a multicultural country, Brunei, she has naturally been exposed to three languages – Chinese (Mandarin), the Malay language and English. Coming from a multicultural background, personal experience of being educated in different types of school settings and experience in teaching Mathematics to EAL students in a bilingual education setting in Brunei, she has become sensitive in noticing as well as overcoming the difficulties both learners and teachers face in classrooms.

Carmen believes it is essential to feel the desire and passion to teach as well as have the enthusiasm and devotion for the subject in order to be a good educator. She encourages learning by using a combination of different artefacts, hands-on activities, and various forms of technology, whenever appropriate. She strongly believes that learning can be fun. 

Carmen has a passion for food, she finds it therapeutic to cook, whether it is for herself or for her family and friends. She also loves travelling around the world but particularly, enjoys gastronomic trips, so she always makes an extra effort to research and plan holidays to ensure she gets to enjoy the best in the country or the city. Apart from the three languages Carmen speaks, she also speaks some other Chinese dialects such as Cantonese, Hokkien, Hakka and hopes to add Shanghainese to the list.
