I'm a teacher of 10 years in Mathematics and various other subjects. I have a Masters in Education as well as being a professional lesson content creator. All lessons I create I use myself as well as share to my own department. I'm always looking to better my lessons in such elements as: the quality of content; quantity; engagement of the pupils; exam prep; efficiency of the lesson; retention curve; accessibility and challenge and various others. I have big plans for Blacksmith Maths.
