Anita is a Mathematics education consultant K-8 with over 20 years experience as an educator in the subject area of Mathematics K-12.
She held classroom teaching and consulting roles in the pubic school sector in metropolitan Sydney before becoming an international Mathematics consultant K-6 for Origo Education working with schools across Australia and the USA.
After three years of living in a constant state of jet-lag and being based anywhere from Seattle, WA to St. Louis, MO to Sydney, NSW she decided that although life in the USA was an amazing adventure, she was missing out on seeing her little niece, Tani and nephew Marcus growing up.
So, in 2010 she gave up the long haul international flights every three months and founded Anita Chin Mathematics Consultancy based in Sydney.

Anita now works nationally with Australian schools travelling far and wide with her famous 'magic red suitcases' bringing her maths resources and other wonderful goodies to teachers classrooms.
She also delivers her innovative Whole School Approach blended model of month-by-month professional learning courses nationally and internationally to Primary / Elementary schools K-6 using the Opening Learning online learning platform.
Anita is devoted to her career and seeks to help educators develop a depth of understanding of current curriculum so they can connect concepts for their students in challenging and engaging ways.
Her teaching mantras are 'Make it, say it, draw it, write it' and 'Less is more'.
Her happy place is in the classroom (when she is working) and soaking up the sun on the beach or being out on the tennis court when she is not working.
