I am a senior Maths support lecturer in the Maths Learning Centre.
My background in Maths Education is varied. I started my career as a Secondary Maths teacher (in London and Hertfordshire) before moving onto writing Maths curriculum and assessment resources, training teachers (at Nottingham) and teaching at a local FE College (Loughborough).
I have particular expertise with Nursing & Midwifery students and first year Engineering students – for whom I run workshops. I also specialise in supporting students prepare to pass Numerical Reasoning tests which are often needed when applying for placements, progression onto further study (eg Teacher training) and for employment.
I am a statistics support lecturer in the Maths Learning Centre.
Originally, I studied Biology, graduating with a BSc in Biology and then a PhD. This is when I developed an interest in using statistics to answer research questions. After completing my PhD at the University of Leeds, I taught Sport Science students, gaining experience in helping students with their data analysis and dissertation write-ups.
At DMU I help students with their statistics queries, supporting both undergraduates and postgraduates from a range of different disciplines. I specialise in practical statistics and provide several workshops to help students understand and apply statistics to their studies, research projects and when critiquing the literature. I also assist students who need support with data analysis, using programmes such as SPSS, Minitab and Excel.
