WHO AM I?
I originally trained as a Cancer Immunologist at a Belgian University (VUB), working on a PhD in finding a cure for cancer using Dendritic Cells. After returning to the UK from a 4 year stay in Malaysia with my British husband, I decided to see what it would be like to work in the English Education System. Since 2006, I have trained and worked as a maths teacher in several Secondary Schools in the South Yorkshire area, during which I also studied for an MA in maths education. I have been a Head of Mathematics, a Specialist Leader in Education (SLE), have been accredited by NCETM to deliver Maths CPD and am a Maths Consultant. I have taught at a School for the Deaf and still teach maths to d/Deaf children and young people in BSL. I have delivered workshops for trainee (maths)teachers at Sheffield Hallam University and Sheffield University and have achieved the National Professional Qualification in Senior Leadership. I decided in March of 2020 to become an independent consultant and maths tutor and am founder of Maths Solutions. I have completed the first year of the Post Graduate Dyscalculia Maths Diploma at Chester University, making me one of the few teachers with the dyscalculia specialist teaccher qualification. I will start the second year of the course in October 2021, after which I will be a qualified Dyscalculia assessor. Despite having all those qualifications and leadership skills, I am a teacher at heart. I feel very strongly about the accessibility of maths for everyone and that we all have an inborn ability to do maths… I feel it is my duty to help you on that journey of maths discovery, through enjoyment in maths, confidence in maths, leading to competence in maths and the qualifications you want to achieve.
