Current Job Title / Employer or Company name  

YouTube Educator - I have created and produce content for a YouTube channel, Bicen Maths, which teaches A-Level Maths and Further Maths.

Dame Alice Owen’s Class of?


Brief description of your path after Owen’s.    

Studied History at University of Oxford, completed Teach First's Leadership Development Programme, teaching maths in inner city Birmingham. I then taught in Bethnal Green, Tower Hamlets, for 9 years. I taught maths, trained teachers, and also set up my YouTube channel there. I also studied for a Graduate Diploma in Maths whilst teaching full time. Since then, I have left teaching to concentrate on my online offering. 

How your path lead you to where you are now? 

I have been in teaching since I left university - so it's all been leading up to me becoming a YouTuber!

Did your time at Owen’s inspire any particular skills or attributes? 

The teaching was fantastic - in particular, my Further Maths teacher, Dr James, inspired me to teach. 

Favourite Owen’s memory? 

So many amazing teachers who inspired me to love learning - and lunch times spent up in the field on sunny days.
