Being a mathematics teacher has opened up many possibilities in life for myself, professionally, as well as for my maths students.

Examples include teaching maths:

  • and numeracy to individuals to help them succeed in careers like vet assistants or sommelier training
  • and science to motor mechanic apprentices
  • to trainee secondary teachers specialising in science and technology
  • to adults returning to STEM education
  • to ex combatants, refugees and immigrants who had missed schooling
  • to young students aspiring to enter university to study in the STEM areas
  • and exploring the use of coding with my nephew.

Infinite possibilities in mathematics continue.
