Crystal Clear Mathematics has been created after years of having parents and students recommend that I create a website to share my teaching and resources.
I grew up in Ballina, a small country town in NSW, Australia. During my high school years I managed to come first in the state of NSW in science (thank you, Bob Quinlivan) and second in mathematics and, after moving to Sydney came ‘dux’ of Normanhurst Boys High School.
Since leaving school I have undertaken twelve years of full time tertiary studies, taught mathematics to secondary school students (and even kindergarten to grade six) on-and-off since 1978, and currently tutor students in mathematics. I have also worked as a technician on a helicopter simulator, been assistant pastor of a couple of churches, run a small computer business, worked as a network administrator, and functioned as an office adminstrator and public relations officer for a financial firm.
My passion for mathematics was particularly fired upon my reading a book called “The Search for Pattern” by W W Sawyer when I was about fifteen. I wish to convey something of that passion through the material provided on this site.
Our boys received a distance education and required additional tuition in their higher level of Maths. Graeme undertook this for us which brought together both his professional expertise and the motivation required for our boys to achieve the excellent results that we all hoped for. Today our boys are following their chosen career paths and we will always remain grateful for Graeme’s part in that. We warmly commend Graeme’s tuition and dedication to his students to you.
