After graduating from Newcastle University with a First Class Degree in Mathematics and Statistics, I started my teaching career in Newcastle upon Tyne. Math has always been a subject I have enjoyed, and as I progressed through school and my degree, my enthusiasm and passion for the subject increased. I believe it is a subject which allows for enjoyment, progression and creativity; aspects that should be encouraged in every lesson.
After completing my Post Graduate Certificate in Education, I spent four years working in northeast England’s leading independent school. Alongside my teaching, I was involved with a range of both academic and extracurricular activities. I coordinated and trained Math Challenge teams, coaching students to compete in national competitions. I also ran the school’s Amnesty International Group, encouraging and aiding students to keep up with current affairs and take part in global campaigns for human rights. I have also previously choreographed for two school musicals and assisted with direction, costumes and props for both productions. At BISC-SL I have enjoyed continuing to work with students on preparation for Math competitions as well as being a part of the MIT collaboration team.
Having spent my childhood traveling the world, living in Hong Kong, Guam, California and various cities in the UK, I am passionate about travel. In my spare time I enjoy film, music, contemporary dance and art.
