My name is Jenny Stacey, and I teach at a medium-sized FE college in the Midlands. My subjects are Maths, from Entry 1 to GCSE, and ESOL, English for Speakers of Other Languages, at Entry Level. I have been teaching ESOL Maths since 2005 and have built up a small bank of knowledge, worksheets and ideas for teaching sessions, which I hope you may find useful if you are involved in delivering Maths to learners whose first language is not English.

My learners have ranged from those with excellent maths skills to those with a very low level of skills, and from those with very little English to some working towards Level 1 or 2. Some are only looking to help their children or improve their job prospects, but others have needed a Maths qualification for their onward journey into nursing, teaching or other professions.

I hope you find the site useful and have as much fun teaching Maths as I have! I will be editing the site from time to time to improve and update it. If you have any suggestions or ideas, please do get in touch.
