Barry obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Applied Mathematics from the University of Glasgow as well as a PGDE in Secondary Education from the University of Strathclyde.
He has been a Mathematics teacher for over ten years and has experience teaching from Year 7 to A-level Mathematics. Barry taught in Scotland and for the past 8 years have been teaching maths in Qatar with the last 4 years being the Head of Department. He believes in promoting independence among his students and encourages collaborative learning whenever possible. Preparing students to think for themselves and to investigate their own ideas is one of his main aims as a teacher. Students should always be challenged beyond their comfort zones.
In my spare time I love to travel. I have visited 54 Countries and this will be my 5th time visiting the beautiful Philippines. I have thoroughly enjoyed visiting the many islands of the Philippines and cannot wait to start teaching at NAIS Manila.
