Vanessa

Role: Secondary Maths Teacher

Year Groups: Year 7-11 Maths

Degree: IT

Following a decade in IT and then running my own business while my children were young, I had a calling to teach maths. My own daughter was bottom set maths at primary and was terrified of my favourite subject.

I have been teaching secondary maths ever since, working my way up to running my own maths department. Over the years I have specialised in teaching students with maths anxiety and teach using multiple representations of concepts to aid understanding. I feel it is a privilege to teach young people and to watch their confidence in maths grow.

Outside of work, I love to dance, cook and look after my chickens, cats, tortoises and children.
