Kara graduated from Imperial College having obtained a MSci in Physics. She embarked on 18 months of travel before being employed on a graduate scheme learning computer programming. After four years in this career Kara had the opportunity to move to Chicago, USA, where she had a few temporary jobs before settling to work for an organisation that promoted health and fitness for girls. This sparked a passion for working with young people and on returning to the UK in 2010 Kara started working as a teaching assistant before deciding to train to teach mathematics.
Kara trained as a maths teacher in 2011 through the Graduate Teaching Programme at Landau Forte College and the University of Nottingham. She has since taught mathematics at KS3, GCSE and A Level, GCSE Physics and KS3 Computer Science. She is currently an examiner for Pearson for A level mathematics.
Kara believes everyone can succeed at mathematics and works to break down the stigma surrounding maths by making lessons enjoyable and accessible to all.
