MBA (Macquarie University)

Bachelor of Science (Maths and Computer Science), B.E. (Civil) (Sydney University)

I began my career in engineering, computer science and corporate education and have followed my interest in education by teaching Mathematics since 1985. I also have experience as a numeracy coordinator in a primary school. I have taught HSC Mathematics from General to Extension and taught support classes for Maths students with learning difficulties. I have recent experience teaching International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program Maths (IB MYP Maths) and I am a member of the Mathematical Association of NSW (MANSW). In addition, I have taught Mathematics to university level and have taught Science and Computer Science to Stage 5 students.
I am interested in using available research evidence to bring effectiveness into the classroom and to promote student confidence and understanding.
