Primary Maths

Hi there! I am a friendly, passionate leader at a school in Bolton. I currently teach in Key Stage 1 - and I love it! Being a teacher is magical and no day is ever the same. The children in my class keep me laughing all day long. My favourite subject to teach is Maths. When I was at school, I found maths tricky. I worked very hard and succeeded! I love being able to teach maths to the young children in my school and teaching it in a way that makes it easy!

Hello! I’m Mrs Buckmire and I am a Maths Lead Practitioner at a secondary school in London. I studied Mathematics at the University of Warwick before completing the Teach First programme, and I’ve been loving teaching ever since. I am super grateful to have been given the opportunity to help more young people improve their maths skills with Oak. I truly believe no one is born good at maths and instead it’s all about how much effort you put in – hard work pays off!

Hi I’m Mr Coward, I am a maths teacher at a school in Barrow-in-Furness. I’m very passionate about both maths and teaching, so I love my job! I feel very privileged to have worked with Oak National Academy to be able to provide support and maths lessons should you need them. When I am not busy with work, doing maths or reading about maths I like to be active, this includes going to the gym, hiking and playing sports. I also love to visit new countries and experience new cultures.

Primary Maths

I live in Portsmouth with my husband and daughter, I also have a dog called Arlo and a cat called Nala. In the school I work at I usually teach in year 4 but I have taught in other year groups too. As a primary teacher, I have always taught all subjects but I particularly enjoy teaching maths. When I was at school, I found maths difficult so teaching it means I have the chance to make maths fun and help children to understand the different concepts. I’ve really enjoyed teaching lessons for Oak National!

I am a secondary school maths teacher, working in the north of England. The best part of my job is helping students to understand maths all day long. I enjoy talking about the methods and strategies that students use and there is nothing better than a student saying, "I get it!" I strongly believe that everybody can do maths, they just need time and the right explanation. I’m also a keen football fan; I love walking in the northern countryside and baking with my daughter.

EYFS & Primary Maths

Teaching keeps me young at heart and I wish I’d found my passion earlier in life. I have taught in EYFS and KS1, but now it is time for me to spread my wings and move to KS2. I enjoy making learning cross-curricular and the children appreciate the immersive nature of my lessons. I am kept busy at a one form entry school in Suffolk as I wear many hats; class teacher, LKS2 Lead, Forest School Leader, Art, Design and Technology, and MFL Lead. I also work with Cambridge Maths Hub as one of their Teaching for Mastery Specialists. Sometimes I crochet and sleep, but not at the same time!

Secondary Maths

Do you know what I find really odd? Seven! I’m Mr Langton, and I absolutely love teaching and doing Maths. I do Maths in the morning, I do Maths in the Math-ternoon, and I also do Maths in the Even-ing. (Get it? Even-ing?). I love Maths jokes, and I will not feel complete until I find a Maths pun for "morning". I teach these jokes (and Maths in general) to an awesome bunch of secondary school students and I honestly can’t imagine doing anything else. Aside from perhaps being a professional tea taster. Mmmm, Earl Grey...

I work at Trinity Academy Halifax, home of White Rose Maths. I am lucky to be teaching in a phenomenal department that has helped me grow to be the best teacher I can be. I left school with no formal maths qualifications and only studied maths later on in life. Finding maths changed my life. If you can find something you love it will change your life too . . . that’s why I teach.

Mathematics is a really important part of everyday life and it’s important that everyone in society is able to work effectively with numbers.

I have enjoyed teaching across the curriculum and have recently begun to shadow the maths lead in my school as part of my professional development which has involved leading on a CPD for staff. As my career progresses, I continue to take on board various approaches to teaching and learning which feeds my hunger to develop my practice and in turn share what outstanding practice looks like.

I am a Teaching and Learning Lead working in London. I am extremely lucky to have taught brilliant children across the school and I am currently having lots of fun teaching in Year 2 and Year 6. I love trying new things and I think my special talent is ’having a go!’ at anything. For this reason, I love experimenting with new technology in the classroom and lead on Science and Computing at my school. Alongside teaching, I volunteer as a Governor of a local school and love talking to children about what makes learning fun.

Hi, I’m Miss Sidhu! I have been teaching for six years and have experience in EYFS, Key Stage 1 and 2. I began my teaching career in Birmingham and then made a big leap to London and became the Primary Maths Lead at my school. I enjoy making maths fun for all my learners. One of the reasons I love teaching is seeing that ‘light-bulb moment’ occur in a child I’ve just taught. I love creating art, travelling, and keeping fit through dance and yoga.

Hi, I’m Mr. Thomas, a secondary maths teacher working in London. I am incredibly passionate (perhaps overly so!) about maths and teaching in general. My favourite part of my job is seeing how pupils flourish over time, particularly when they have ’lightbulb moments’. The ’ahha!’ moment is brilliant, especially when it is a fiendishly difficult problem and it seemed unsolvable at first! In my spare time, I love playing tennis and the way angles work in action on the tennis court is exhilarating!

Hello Everyone! I’m an experienced Primary school teacher and school mathematics subject leader situated in Surrey. I absolutely love teaching in primary school education and seeing the lightbulb moments that children experience. Mathematics just gains the edge over history in terms of my favourite subject to teach. During maths lessons, I encourage the use of concrete resources and pictorial representations....bar models are a thing of absolute beauty! Away from the classroom, I am an avid lover of both cricket and hiking. Getting out in the great outdoors is almost as exhilarating as switching on the visualiser and drawing bar models!
