I am the Mathematics and Statistics Adviser, starting in August 2017.


I have a degree in Mathematics (1995) and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (1996) from the University of York. In September 1996 I began a secondary school teaching career and taught Mathematics, IT and Engineering to students aged 11 to 19. I have held teaching jobs at Great Cornard Upper School (1996-2009), Stowmarket High School (2009-2010), Suffolk One Sixth Form (2010-2014 & 2016-2017) and Ipswich High School for Girls (2014-2016). I have lots of experience at teaching pre-GCSE, GCSE, A-Level (pure, statistics and mechanics) and functional skills.


My role at the University of Suffolk is to support in mathematical and statistical content of the courses run here. This can be done through 1 to 1 sessions and through in-course and general workshops. Whether it be help with calculations, working with number, metrics, analysing data, using spss or just improving general mathematical skill and confidence then do look to book a help session.
