Dominika (@dragon_dodo on twitter) is a physics student by day, and a recreational mathematician by night. She is often found setting things on fire (by accident!) or scaring off other students with overexcited ramblings about Fourier analysis.

Where do you teach?

I teach in my home in Abbotsbury Road, Weymouth.

It's a 15-minute walk from Weymouth station, and it's on bus routes 3, 8 and X53. On-road parking is available nearby.
