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.

From the beginning of my schooling I had struggled with Mathematics. Highly discouraged by my results, I grew to eventually hate Maths and lost all motivation to improve. Then part way through year seven my parents decided to send me to Crystal Clear Mathematics. Graeme was able to quickly identify areas I needed to improve and explain Maths in a way that finally made sense to me. I was able to understand Maths. This in turn then affected my confidence in my own ability.

Since working with Graeme I have gone from failing to significantly improved results. I now get As & Bs both in examinations and for assignment tasks. Graeme is patient, kind and his tutoring is individualised. He was so helpful and I am grateful for his help.
