Meet the Teachers – Alina Tsyba, Teacher of Mathematics

Where were you before Eltham College?

Before starting at Eltham College, I worked in an investment bank for a short period of time, but then I decided to become a teacher. My previous school was Walworth Academy.

What have you enjoyed so far about starting here? 

It has been wonderful and inspiring to see how keen and positive students and staff at Eltham College are. There is a very welcoming and purposeful sense of community.

What are you most excited about undertaking with students?

I love Maths and really enjoy solving challenging problems. I am very excited about solving Olympiad-style questions and sharing Mathematical history with my students.

Something students and staff may not know about you? 

I speak Russian and I am passionate about the environment. I enjoy making jewellery in my spare time and know a lot about tea!
