About CheriyaparambilRaghavan

I was born and educated in India. Now, I am based in South Africa.

I got my Masters in mathematics from the University of Kerala and a teaching qualification -HED (Postgraduate) from the University of South Africa.

I have 36 years of experience in teaching mathematics at both O and A Levels. I served the departments of education in the following countries.

I was Head of Department of Mathematics at Hendrik Kanise High School in South Africa.

After my retirement from the South African Department of Education, I am now actively involved in a Mathematics Development Program under Rhodes University to improve the mathematics proficiency among the High School students in South Africa.

I am also an online mathematics teacher offering private tuition to students all over the world in the various mathematics curricula prescribed for GCSE, IGCSE, CBSE, PLUS1 & 2, A & As Level (Edexel) etc.
