Originally from Romania, where I completed an MSc in Civil Engineering (railways, roads and bridges) and worked for a decade as a Senior Project Manager, I have now lived in the UK for 29 years. Here, I have continued developing my life-long love for learning, completing a part-time MA in School Development at Canterbury Christ Church and a part-time Doctorate in Education at Cambridge University (where I also supervise undergraduates). I am also a Chartered Mathematics teacher and am TEFL certified.
I have over 20 years experience as a qualified Mathematics teacher, having held middle leadership roles, with whole school responsibilities, and Head of Mathematics positions in two Secondary schools in Kent. Currently, I am a part-time Mathematics teacher at an international 6th Form college. I am also an experienced Mathematics examiner for various examining boards. My practical knowledge of applications of Mathematics in everyday life helps my students better understand connections between the topics studied and how this relates to modelling the world around them.
Outside the classroom, when I am not socialising, travelling, reading or walking, I enjoy attending concerts, musicals (my daughter is a professional violinist) and plays (supporting my husband’s amateur dramatic pursuits).
I look forward to joining you on your learning journey.
