Freelance Mathematics Consultant

Having worked as a maths subject leader in various educational establishments for over 20 years, I have spent the last five years as a Senior Regional Coordinator for the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM). Now working as a Freelance Mathematics Consultant, I support schools in raising their student achievement through creating a positive attitude to maths. I also work with OCR and teachers to create "the best Maths GCSE scheme ever!", the Further Mathematics Support Programme and teach mathematics on the Primary PGCE Course at Newcastle University.

I am on the IMA's Schools and Further Education committee and the London Mathematical Society Education Committee

Maths Trails
Mathematics is not a closed box. It does not exist in isolation, and as with all things, it needs to interact with other subjects if it is to flourish. A maths trail creates natural links to many other subjects in the curriculum. In working collaboratively, staff can support each other, benefiting from the wealth of good practice they have to offer.
