We work collaboratively with you, in a style that suits you and at a pace that suits you, to help you build your confidence and understanding.
I am Andrew Browne and my role in the MLC is as a maths support lecturer.
After completing my MMath in Mathematics with proficiency in Japanese at the University of Exeter, I am about to have my PhD viva at the University of Cambridge. I have previously taught as a Peer Assisted Learning leader and undergraduate tutor for first year students at Exeter, an undergraduate supervisor at Cambridge, and both demonstrated and was the primary lecturer for a core statistics course at Cambridge.
My specialisms for teaching are undergraduate mathematics, particularly statistics, both in theory and in practice with Excel, SPSS, and R.
I graduated in BSc Mathematics where I studied core mathematics and statistics modules. Following my undergraduate degree, I developed a strong interest in mathematics and education and pursued my passion to specialise in this area by securing a PhD studentship at Coventry University.
For over 10 years, I have been teaching and supporting undergraduate and postgraduate students with mathematics and statistics related queries. I specialise in teaching students from a range of disciplines and ability, including teaching Maths for Engineering, Pharmacy and Nursing students. I also teach Statistics including Excel and SPSS to Psychology and Biomedical students.
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.
