British International School of Chicago, South Loop | Private School Chicago

Math Specialist | IGCSE Coordinator

I think what makes British International School of Chicago, South Loop unique is its commitment to personalizing and enriching students’ learning to ensure that every single student has the opportunity to achieve as highly as possible. This is a key element of the ethos of this school as well as my own beliefs about education.

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.
