Duale Said

I grew up in South East London in an area called Greenwich. I attained my BSc (honours) degree in Mathematics from Brunel University London and my Post Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) from Goldsmiths University in London. I’ve worked as a Mathematics teacher for 7 years across two secondary schools in London. During this time, I’ve taught KS3-KS5 classes and was a dedicated form tutor.

About Me

I knew that I always wanted to go into teaching, and would continually feel a sense of joy in helping others learn. This excitement for education was instilled in me from a young age, and I could not see myself doing anything else.

I am passionate about teaching Mathematics and thoroughly believe that pupils learn through first- hand experiences and stimulating environments, which make the learning personal and relevant to them. I have high and realistic expectations of every pupil, to enable them to reach their full potential-no matter what! My lessons incorporate vast amounts of application to the world in which we live, and believe this is the best way for pupils to understand the concepts in mathematics. In my spare time, I like to keep active by training Thai boxing, as well as going for a run/hike.

My Experience

BSc (Hons) Education in Mathematics | PGCE in Secondary Mathematics Education

The best teaching moments are definitely the daily relationships which I develop with students. Magic in the classroom cannot happen without those relationships. We all know that attainment and outcome are important, but as a teacher, there is scope to make much more of a difference to a student’s life than only the results that they leave school with.

I love that every day in school is different, and every day, I come across new challenges and ways to overcome them. After all, they are students in my classroom today, citizens and leaders of tomorrow.
