Do you have a personal message for students?
So many people seem to have very negative experiences with maths. They describe it in terms of frustration, boredom, distress, anxiety and even trauma. People often have really strong feelings about it.

We frequently hear people of all ages say things like

“I can't do maths”

“maths is my worst subject”

“I hate maths”

Working with the belief that maths is something that everyone can learn to do and that we can control and therefore develop our maths intelligence, I provide specialist one to one help with maths.

Starting from wherever you are now and working to build your knowledge and confidence at your own pace, we can work together to overcome the psychological learning blocks and help you move towards becoming both competent and confident in learning maths.
