Masters Student, Mathematics and Computer Science
Mrs Kaur is a fantastic teacher and mentor, which is exemplified by the growing number of students she has inspired and lead to success in STEM related competitions.
While I was at secondary school, Mrs Kaur helped me to enter many competitions over the years that she taught me. Examples of these are the TeenTech Awards, the Big Bang Fair and the UK Bebras Competition, all of which I have made to the finals thanks to Mrs Kaur. As a direct result of her guidance, I also managed to achieve a Gold CREST Award and Gold Youth STEMM award, which are nationally recognised accreditations for project work and success in the STEM field.
The work put in by Mrs Kaur has undoubtedly had a lasting impact on both me and my career path. Her teaching has improved my ability to think critically and research effectively, which is demonstrated by the variety of different projects I have worked on. As well as this, she is fantastic at motivating students to work hard and learn new things. For instance, after I finished my exams at school, Mrs Kaur gave me the opportunity to work on a project in electronics and hardware control, where my task was to design, build and program a contactless door access system.
This project taught me invaluable skills in hardware-software interfacing, practical skills in soldering and lots of theoretical knowledge about RFID systems and circuit board architecture. This is just one of the many examples where Mrs Kaur has gone above and beyond what is required to give her students the best education she can. For these reasons, if you are looking to develop skills like critical thinking, problem-solving and research, I highly recommend NXT GEN Innovators.
