Dr Carlos Fresneda-Portillo

Lecturer in Mathematics

Profile

I currently am a passionate Lecturer in Mathematics at Oxford Brookes University.

During my academic career I have been working as an Associate Lecturer at Brunel University London for three years and as Mathematics and Statistics tutor at the Mathematics Support Centre at the University of Reading.

Before I moved to university I used to work as a teaching assistant form tutor in Rosedale College (Hayes) with students of year 7. Moreover, I worked as a private tutor of Mathematics in Spain and France.
