A Maths Tutor is Born

A Maths Tutor is Born

From class teacher to full-time maths tutor

My Inspiration

My inspiration for starting Maths Spies were my Year 5 class when I was a class teacher. Recognising that many students needed more support than I could give them during class time I ran extra maths sessions at lunchtime for any who wanted to attend. These students left me a grateful 'graffiti', which is pictured to the right. Their gratitude confirmed that what I was doing was worthwhile. Not only did students appreciate it but many had turned the corner and begun to enjoy maths. From then my mind was made up - I had to make maths tutoring my full-time gig.

I combined the move to becoming a full time maths tutor with a move to lovely Nelson and so Maths Spies was born.
