Andrew has been described as a ‘maths evangelist’ and likes nothing better than spending time with teachers working on their teaching of mathematics (unless it’s spending a day in their classrooms!) He is a highly experienced trainer who mixes practical ideas with pedagogy in a humorous but thought-provoking way; you will come away tired but inspired.
