What made you want to work at EIM?
As an EIM student, I was exposed to a learning environment that was characterised by intense banter together with brutal efficiency. This made learning math a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I mean, who doesn’t enjoy a bit of talking smack whilst smashing through complex numbers?
Why do you like teaching?
Personally, I have been pretty fortunate in my own education – having had a whole host of amazing teachers and tutors. Without their dedication and guidance, I would not be where I am today. In a similar way, I want to be able to pass down my knowledge down to my students and give them as enriching of an experience as possible.

What was your favourite subject to learn in high school and why?
Definitely mathematics. First and foremost, unlike the ‘opinionated’ subjects (i.e. English), maths is black and white. You are either right, or you are wrong. And when you have made a wrong, you can always pinpoint exactly what the mistake was.
In contrast, for English, ‘mistakes’ are like when teachers tell you: “you’re kinda on the right track, but then not quite because of this this this this”… and you’re just sitting there thinking “wtheck man… what do you want me to do??”
Secondly, solving difficult math problems always gives a strong sense of satisfaction and achievement – a feeling that no other subject can really replicate.
If you could time travel, would you go into the future or the past?
I would want to travel into ancient times with my current knowledge. Then, amaze people with my ability to solve quadratic equations and apply Pythagoras’ Theorem.
What is one thing you can’t live without?
Purpose. Without having purpose (whether it be study, work, helping people etc.), I think it would be very difficult to live without getting bored and lethargic.
Behind the scenes at EIM, we have an incredible team of people who strive to help you do the best you can. This blog series helps you get to know all the people who contribute to the amazing learning experience for every student who walks through our doors. Stay tuned to meet the rest of the team!
