Michael Vanden Boom

Head of Sixth Form Mathematics

Michael studied Maths and Computer Science at university, including a DPhil from Oxford in 2012. He grew up near Chicago in the US but has lived in the UK long enough now to say ‘maths’ instead of ‘math’. Michael joined d’Overbroeck’s in 2017, and thoroughly enjoys serving as a Director of Studies and teaching Maths and Further Maths to the diverse group of budding mathematicians in the Sixth Form. He is always keen to share his enthusiasm for proofs and patterns with his students—did you know that every prime number greater than 3 is either one more or one less than a multiple of 6 (and can you prove it?!)
