Roland Potgieter

Year 13 Form Tutor and Maths Teacher

I have more than 20 years of experience, as a teacher working in South Africa, the United States and Qatar.  As I am a firm believer of lifelong learning I completed my Bachelor's degree as well as my M.Ed in Educational Management

I started my teaching career as a PE specialist as I was a keen sportsperson and involved in many sports, such as martial arts, football, table tennis and athletics.  I had the privilege to grade for my 3degree black belt in Mauritius at the age of 25.  I am also a keen golfer and recently brought my handicap down to 11.  I do believe that, the subject I teach, Mathematics is like any sport - The more you practice the better you become.

I left South Africa 10 years ago, where I was the deputy principal to go and work in the United States on an outreach teaching programme joining the Visiting International Faculty Programme.  Two years later I came to Qatar where I joined Al Jazeera Academy and then Doha British School where I became HOD for Mathematics.  I moved to Compass International School Doha in 2014 as a Mathematics Teacher.

I have found the students at Compass extremely respectful to teachers and their peers. The teachers are very supportive and helpful.
