Debbie Jenkins

I am Debbie Jenkins and my main function at SCILD is to assist school children of all ages with mathematics. Over the past three years pupils for various reasons have seen me once a week during term time. My passion is to help them see the beauty of patterns in maths and to enjoy doing maths. Maths can be great fun! I do not follow a set programme but rather lessons are designed for the individual. My aim is to build their confidence and their ability to think about maths problems. I am a trained teacher ( BA and HDE with maths method ). I have been married for 32 years and have 2 grown up boys! My teaching experience has been in high school mathematics, grade R, extra lessons of all ages for most of the past 30 years and assisting my own boys who both excelled at mathematics.
