Tell me about some of your current students.
I am currently teaching Functional Skills Level 2 maths for a student going to university in September.
I am also currently working with three younger students who all had a fear of maths before our sessions. I use lots of interactive resources and games with my earlier key stages which I have found works really well.
Two of my learners who regularly study maths and English with me are reading some Shakespeare's stories for children which they are enjoying immensely.
