The history of our world has been greatly influenced by its mathematicians. They have developed the code and strategies and understanding that has allowed trade, agriculture, industry, management, engineering and science to develop. In this part of my website, I would like to draw your attention to some amazing men and women from all periods who can inspire and intrigue you. They are presented in no particular order.

I was tutored by Graeme for the majority of my high school years in mathematics. He really helped me to understand ways of working out problems that I had difficulty grasping, which I’m very thankful for! When I was studying some subjects in accountancy and business mathematics at university, I found the concepts that he had taught me were invaluable. He is a fantastic tutor, highly recommend him if you need any help with mathematics.
