Maths Samurai

Stephen Henderson is driven to empower both children and young adults. He attended high school at the prestigious Somerset College where he studied English, Mathematics B, Mathematics C, Physics, Chemistry and Engineering Technology.

After graduating he attended Bond University where he studied a Bachelor of Information Technology with a focus on Mathematical Modelling and Software Development. He was awarded a 20% scholarship for his efforts and achieved a Distinction average. Throughout his university studies he worked at Numberworks ‘n’ words as a Senior Maths Tutor.

After working in industry developing software, he decided that he hadn’t found the satisfaction that he thought he would find. He then tried a multitude of jobs including a Computer Salesman, Home Automation Installer, Video Games tester and a Tour Guide on the Great Barrier Reef. After some reflection he came to the realisation that his passion is in Education. It was at this stage he returned to Griffith University to study a Post Graduate Diploma in Education.

After this he worked at Saint Stephen’s College for 6 years teaching Maths and Computer Science. Where he had a variety of success and refined his teaching practices.
After a brief stint teaching Computer Science overseas at an IB school in China, he now works at Somerset College Teaching Maths, Computer Science and Engineering. He now uses his Technology skillset to produce innovative ways to deliver content.
