I like mathematical puzzles (and mathematical humour).
They provide intellectual challenges and mental stimulation. They also help the puzzler to learn and develop good problem-solving techniques. These techniques can sometimes be used when solving strategy problems in real life and can certainly be used in other mathematical pursuits. I have hundreds, and possibly thousands, of puzzles to share with you. This represents a small start!
I have decided to bundle them in groups of twenty:

We were all deeply impressed with Graeme from the very beginning. [Lucas’] confidence radically changed within only 3 weeks of Graeme’s instruction and assistance. I am sure this was largely attributed to Graeme’s infectious passion and love for his subject, and his high personal level of skill, teaching experience and understanding of mathematics. Lucas always found Graeme could explain concepts so knowledgeably and easily, which really did transform Lucas’ appreciation and enjoyment of the subject. Graeme always gave Lucas assistance and time over and above his hour’s tutoring session. Graeme has developed a wonderful relationship and more of a mentoring role which has been of great assistance and value to Lucas as he faces the pressures of his final year of school. I have no hesitation in recommending Graeme as an outstanding tutor and friend, and a very wise, knowledgeable and capable teacher of the highest calibre.
