Georgina strongly believes that no one is ‘rubbish at maths’ and that everyone has the potential to do well. If there is something a student does not understand, she likes to try to take a different approach and find an explanation that makes sense to them. She relates mathematics to real life as much as possible and uses activities to make some of the more ‘boring’ topics fun. Georgina likes to give her students problems and puzzles that help to improve their problem-solving skills and independent thinking. She believes in personalised learning and will always try to tailor lessons to the students’ needs and interests.
In her spare time Georgina likes to read about psychology, play tennis, practice yoga and meditate. She recently completed yoga teacher training in Thailand, and she hopes to start teaching it soon. She has travelled to many different countries, mostly in Asia, and she enjoys hiking and camping when she can get out to the mountains. She has grade 8 piano certificate and a violin diploma. Georgina speaks a little conversational Thai and she has GCSEs in French and German.
