  1. Thanks Marty

    This lesson resulted from my current career as a tutor. Teachers have mixed feelings regarding tutors. On one hand they give extra support to the teachers’ efforts, supplementing the limited time that the teacher gets. But I have seen posts where the teacher is annoyed; something wrong has been taught by the tutor, or the teacher’s surprise has been pre-empted.

      1. I think you’re suggesting a posting on tutoring on the teaching maths blog? Yes I was contemplating something along those lines, maybe next week.
