What does a Secondary Maths Teacher do?
Maths is a subject many find hard to grasp, but it is also one of the most important national curriculum subjects. Therefore, as a Maths Teacher, it is vital that you’re passionate about mathematics and how it is applied to the everyday, across other subjects and, in later life.
Becoming a Secondary Maths Teacher is an ideal opportunity to take on a challenging role. Utilising a variety of teaching methods and new developments in the curriculum, you can inspire your pupils to understand and enjoy Maths. You will be suited to this position if you can develop an energetic and hands-on teaching style that clearly explains complex mathematical equations to pupils of different experiences and abilities. You will also need to present the information in a way that demonstrates not just the what, but also the why and the how.
