Denise Briscoe graduated with Honours as a Computational Mathematician and spent some time in the finance industry, before becoming a Maths teacher based in London. She is currently a Learning Manager for Key Stage 4 at college, teaching GCSE and Functional Skills (that covers maths and English).
“Maths is something I am passionate about, and I try to impart some of that enthusiasm whilst teaching. Forming positive relationships with students, I believe, sets the right mental environment conducive for learning.
Maths is like marmite; some hate it, some love it. It comes down to whether the subject is taught in a way that encourages learning. By conveying mathematical concepts in simplistic terms and focusing on methods/tools students can use to answer questions, I help to accelerate their understanding, enabling them to progress their learning. This improves their confidence and ultimately their success rate.”
