Craig Matthews

Secondary Maths Lead, Nottingham Children’s Hospital School

“The Top Hat Maths session provided by I’m Strong have been very successful in the Children’s Hospital School. The activities delivered are fun and engaging and the delivery has been adapted to meet the needs of the children, who often vary from week to week. The activities have ranged from number puzzles and games, to engineering and coding. The room always has a lively and engaging atmosphere and the children always provide positive feedback.”

David Shonoiki

Colchester Project Leader - Volunteer

Brenda’s drive led her to get in contact with the university to expand I Am Strong, allowing students to reach and help more pupils in the community with Maths. Coming back from the sessions that she had organised, volunteers were overjoyed and filled with compliments for the project and Brenda.

Brenda is enthusiastic, patient and passionate about her work. Her leadership is complemented by her ability to delegate. I was tasked with recruiting volunteers through the university, and Brenda’s communication allowed me to clearly relay information about the project to students at the university, and answer any questions. Working with Brenda has been a delight.
