Assistant Head of KS3/ Maths Teacher

Mathew Duxbury
BSc Mathematics,
Master of Mathematics,
Postgraduate Certificate in Education, QTS

I’m originally from England, I grew up in a city called Salford just near Manchester. I went to study in Leeds and in Newcastle, Australia for a year. During my Master’s degree I studied a lot of pure mathematics as well as logic and philosophy. In my PGCE I got to experience two great different schools, and learn a lot about mathematical pedagogy. I then spent a year teaching mathematics at a secondary school in Leeds. I’ve taught in Nanjing for the last year and I consider this my new home.

I really love mathematics; talking about it, looking at it, exploring it and most importantly, doing it! I love passing on my knowledge of mathematics and physics, and watching students discover the beauty of these subjects. I always try to make my lessons interesting and fun, plus my door is always open if you ever need any help.

In my spare time I enjoy travelling as much as possible especially when it involves me going SCUBA diving or teaching SCUBA diving. Additionally, I am also trying to learn Mandarin, so if you want to come and laugh at my bad pronunciation you’re more than welcome to. The Mandarin learning is going better than me trying to learn the ukulele.
