Maths graduate working as Maths teaching assistant in London
I am a Maths graduate and I worked as Maths Editor on textbooks for the Italian market. I worked as Primary TA and I am currently a Secondary Maths TA. I will apply for a PGCE in Secondary Maths, in order to become a fully qualified Maths teacher.
My primary interest is understanding the learning of Maths and to facilitate the study of this wonderful subject!
I have a long experience in tutoring. I started helping friends and cousins as I was studying at Secondary school and I continued till I moved to France for my Erasmus during University.
I worked as a Scientific Explainer in libraries and museums and I enjoyed showing the unexpected connexions between everyday life and Maths!
I write and edit Italian Maths textbook, therefore I need to have not only a good subject knowledge but also a deep understanding of the best ways to teach a topic and the possible misconceptions students may have.
I am now working as a Teaching Assistant in a Secondary School in London and I have prepared students attending entry exams for University in Italy.
I strongly believe that everyone can learn Maths and enjoy it.
I value the full understanding of a topic and I do not appreciate students using formulae without understanding their meaning!
I support the development of fluency with dedicated exercises but I appreciate taking the time to commit to deep understanding and to discover with hands-on and funny activities.
