- Thesis title: Tackling low attainment of disadvantaged students in primary mathematics through out-of-school interventions
- Supervisors: Dr Judy Sayers, Dr Matt Homer
After twelve years of teaching secondary mathematics in some of the most deprived areas of England, my passion for serving the community has led me on a journey for solutions. All children deserve the best education, where they come from or their family’s socioeconomic status should not determine this. Some children, unfortunately, begin school behind their peers, and from day one it is a matter of trying to catch up.
A passing grade in mathematics unlocks several opportunities for children who would otherwise be limited to a life of poverty and disadvantage. As such, I am interested in researching community and out-of-school interventions to improve outcomes in mathematics for disadvantaged children.
