“Dear Stuart, I just thought I should write to thank you for two great days of PD. Your presentation, and more importantly your relaxed and approachable style, is very easy to listen to and enjoy while the content is so relevant and your words resonate with me (maybe because you are saying what I truly believe also about the students we teach, the many issues with topics, the importance of varying our teaching techniques and mainly the sharing of our (teacher’s) knowledge and experiences etc.). Even though I had listened to you before, I have picked up many more subtleties this time and have already incorporated some of your tips and ideas in the past two weeks. I certainly look forward to teaching this course again with my new and invigorated ‘attack’ ”. Joanne Allison 3.11.11
“This course was worth the 16-hour drive through the rain. It was by far the most interesting, relevant and inspiring course I have ever done. Thanks Stuart.” Kylie Barker, Deniliquin High School, Out of Field Teachers Course (OOF) Course, March 2012.
“This course was fantastic in so many ways. It provided games, activities and teaching pedagogy that will improve my teaching across all year groups. I would recommend it to all teachers, not just out-of-field teachers.” Graham Smith, Tamworth High School, OOF Course, March 2012.
“I found the course fantastic. So many new ideas and resources, all explained logically. This is how maths should be taught to trainee teachers to start with but 30 year teachers probably need it more.” Paul Chesher, Westfields Sports High School, OOF Course, March 2012.
“This is a great course that goes beyond the textbook. I enjoyed the fact that over the 2 days lots of content was covered. It has given me confidence to teach maths and ways to inspire students.” Amanda Willoughby, Cootamundra High School, OOF Course, March 2012.
“This course was amazing! The resources and ideas I received have inspired me to become a much more confident and creative teacher of maths.” Alicia Jordan, Goulburn High School, March 2012.
“I just wanted to email to say a million thanks for all the resources you shared at the General Mathematics Course at the end of last term. This term has been so successful for me as a teacher, and (I hope) my year 11 and 12 students. Your resources are so intuitive and adaptable and have been the basis for each and every lesson. Keep up the amazing work - can't wait to get to another PD in the near future. Penny Stormon, Karabar High School & Distance Education Centre, Queanbeyan Tips, Tools and Tricks - General Maths Course
"Stuart has provided me with some excellent teaching ideas and resources that were ready to use the next day. He carefully explained the underlying mathematics and also showed me how to integrate these resources into my lessons" Paul Chesher, Westfields Sports High School, Tips, Tools and Tricks - General Maths Course
“An essential PD experience for any maths teacher.” Margaret Flynn, Mosman High School, OOF Course, March 2012.
