I have a good knowledge of the GCSE specifications for maths and KS3 &KS4 curriculum.
I have good communication skills, with students, parents and colleagues. I am very good with people, they trust me, believe in me and they feel confident around me. Throughout my life many people (all generation) told me that I helped them to become more confident in themselves.
I taught students Maths at KS3 and KS4 whilst doing my PGCE teaching training in Headlands School & Community Science College and Driffield School & Sixth College and South Holderness Technology College. I am now NQT I
Prior to that I spent about five months helping as a volunteer in the Maths department in Hornsea School & Language College, Sydney Smith School, Andrew Marvell Business & Enterprise College and Newland School for Girls. My reason for doing this was because I wanted to gain experience in different schools and find out if teaching is the job for me. I enjoyed it very much, it was interesting, challenging, never boring, and after all the experience I gained, I decided to apply for the Mathematics Enhancement Course and PGCE.
I have a passion for teaching Maths. When I was at school, Maths did not come naturally to me and I understand the feeling that students can have when they are struggling, and do not feel that they can do it. When I was 12 years old, my next door neighbor decided to help me with my maths for few weeks. He explained all the different topics to me that I couldn't understand. For these few weeks he managed to change my perspective on maths. I can still remember him telling me: ‘if you don’t know the basics, you cannot build it further’. After a few sessions with him I never had any problems with Maths. I hope that I too would be able to change students perspectives on Maths and that some of them would mention my name later in their life as a person who helped
them as I mention my next door neighbor.
