WORKING EXPERIENCE

January 2016 to date: Part time lecturer, Kyambogo University. Responsible for lecturing and supervision of undergraduate students offering BSc. Statistics and BSc. Education, and post-graduate students offering Master of Science in Applied Mathematics. I have been involved in giving lectures at Learning Centers established by Kyambogo University. The courses taught so far include; Programming Methodology, Time Series Analysis, Classical Mechanics, Vector Calculus, Algebra, Calculus, Stochastic Processes, Financial Mathematics.

August 2011 – 2015: Head of Examinations office Naalya S S Bweyogerere. Through this office, I ensured that the quality of papers set by teachers and assessment is excellent. This has kept Naalya S S Bweyorere among the top ten ranked schools in Uganda since 2009.

March 2011 – 2015: Head of Mathematics Department Naalya S S Bweyogerere. Responsible for all administrative activities in the department; Oversee setting & marking of examinations, supervising teaching and learning of Mathematics, allocate classes and prepare subject syllabi.

2007 – 2009: Class Teacher Naalya S S Bweyogerere. I was the class teacher of the class that sat their O-level examinations in 2009 where I was also their mathematics teacher.

June 2007 – 2014: Teacher of Mathematics and Physics, Naalya S S Bweyogerere and Head of Mathematics Department A-level at the same school. I have ensured quality delivery of mathematics teachers at A-level, with most of our students scoring grades; A, B and C. I have also written two books entitled “Explorations in A-level Mechanics Mathematics” and “Explorations in A-level Physics Paper One”.

November 2009 – 2011: Taught and Bishop Nankyama Memorial College on part time basis, where I headed both Mathematics and Physics departments.
