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.
I don't know where you get your patience from. It has helped us to do our best. I hope I will find more lecturers like you when I start university in September. Thank you and God bless!
We didn't think we would fit all the work in but you made it so easy and fun.
Thank you so much for all the help and support over this past year. You are a fantastic tutor and we will miss you lots.
