Maths does not have to be confusing or scary. It can be simple and understood by you.
Maths Untangled is your ‘no-nonsense’ travel guide.
I am not a Mathematician. At school, I was no high-flier, not even an also ran. More a back-marker. I appreciate how it felt being the one who did not get it.
Helping struggling or disillusioned students UNTANGLE doubt and become less fearful was my passion and driving force as a teacher.
- To develop my own different creative approaches, to unlock their potential. The key?
- To build their resilience, self-esteem and confidence and achieve light bulb moments, positive attitude change, and new-found motivation.
- To gain a realisation it is possible to understand, and yes, even enjoy the subject.
My fondest memory is a bottom set student who wanted to be a mechanic and returned to tell me he became one.
