About Susan

I have a passion for education, it's not necessarily the subject it may just be the teacher. I found this out when I went to University and found that I had a deep enjoyment of maths (something I hated at school) and now I find myself teaching Functional Skills EL2 to L2.

In eleven years of teaching maths, only two of my students have failed their maths tests and I have seen over 800 students personally. In peer observations and Ofsted observations I am maintaining a grade 2. Whilst working in the Adult Learning sector I have seen the growing need for family learning, this has turned into a passion and I have delivered many family learning and keeping up with the children courses; as I see it and have witnessed - a family who learn together can be a positive for all concerned, no matter their age.

Learning is something that does not stop when we leave full time education, in most cases it only begins there. I am a maths and ICT coach and mentor and a maths specialist, while accepting that English is necessary in order to be able to read, understand and achieve an answer to a maths problem, maths has its own vocabulary and numerical literacy is also an important language to develop; just as ICT has its own vocabulary and language.

I have also in the last two years coached five students who were at colleges doing their Level 3 Teaching Assistant courses, all who have passed. Just by getting them to think a little differently about how they could answer their assignments and notice what they do every day made a difference to how they fitted into their settings. developing courses and delivering courses under the Skills for Life remit, move on/get on courses in the community, family learning courses in schools, Sure Starts and community venues; also Family Literacy, Language, and Numeracy courses in the primary schools.

I also devised and delivered workshops and taught sessions for parents in schools who wanted to learn the new ways the children were learning maths and what ICT they were covering and that even though the processes may have changed the end product was still the same. Most of the parents attended so they would be able to understand and help with their children’s homework, there was a marked difference in the children whose parents came onto these courses and children at key stage two were achieving higher scores in maths SATs. I also worked with the HLTA's and the TA's as a maths mentor or coach whilst they were on their NVQ courses.
