Education is a critical component for success in life. Providing students with quality education is what I have tried to spend my life doing. I trained in Auckland as a primary teacher and completed a degree mastering in Education. I also took part in a Dip Maths Education which included calculus and problem solving in Primary school math. I moved to the Waikato and continued in the Primary sector as both Deputy Principal and Principal of several schools. I then went into business running Kip McGrath in Hamilton, initially doing some part time work at a High School. Although maths is a natural strength, literacy, and early reading, including structured literacy now, is what many people know me for.
I thoroughly support the MFAL initiative to provide mathematic education for those who can’t afford private tuition. School alone is often not enough for those who really want to succeed..
