Renowned expertise


At Maths Explained we understand mathematical learning difficulties through years of teaching and research. Our experience is such that we’ve even written some of the worlds' most comprehensive books on the subject!

My 13 year old has just started your program and for the first time in his life is understanding math! I cannot come close to conveying the struggles we have been through with the education system, and so, now as a home-schooled student, and with 'maths explained', he is learning the explanations behind WHY we do something, not just being told to 'do it that way'. Thank you so much for this program. I wish it were mandatory viewing of every teacher in Australia, for the damage their lack of understanding of learning differences does is too great. With your program, I hope to not only help my son learn basic math, but restore his self-esteem along the way. Best 30 pounds ever spent!!’
