About Emma Booth

I have been the departmental maths coordinator for three years and teach maths modules across different routes at the Centre for Foundation Studies.

After completing my A levels, I went to university where I achieved a Master’s degree in Chemical and Process Engineering. From here, I worked as a regulatory officer for a local authority, where I specialised in environmental permits, monitoring and enforcement. As my career and experience progressed, I was invited to guest lecture at universities, and provide in house training to colleagues and external organisations. I really enjoyed this aspect of my job so returned to university and completed a PGCE in mathematics.

I have always enjoyed maths and through my previous roles, have experience of applying theory in different contexts, such as engineering design, data analysis and financial calculations. The maths modules that we teach at the Centre for Foundation Studies are tailored to suit the different foundation routes and this ensures that students are equipped with the necessary skills to successfully progress through their chosen degree.

Having studied at different times of my life, I can appreciate the benefits and the difficulties. During my first degree, I lived away from home and held a part time job to support myself financially. As a mature student, I was trying to balance childcare and other responsibilities with my studies. However, I absolutely love learning new things and hope to be able to use my experience to support our students at this stage of their journey.
