Your Instructor
Hi, my name is Brendan I recently graduated from the University of Aberdeen with a 1st Class Masters in Mechanical Engineering. Since leaving University I founded founded SUMS Academy.
SUMS Academy is an online learning platform that creates resources specifically for the Scottish school curriculum. Our aim is to create powerful and useful tools that allow students to learn and practice concepts outside of the classroom. By allowing learning to take place out of the class room there are several benefits, pressure is taken off teachers who are already stretched thin, students learn to be selfmotivated and take more control of their own learning.
Many students that struggle to concentrate in distracting classroom or find themselves falling behind can learn at their own pace. SUMS Academy is a web and mobilebased, students, teachers and parents can access data from anywhere at any time on iPhone, Android devices as well as on computer and laptops.
