This is what I would have loved at school, the simple voice of some one Id prefere to call an enabler rather than some negitive teacher macking life hard. It,s so simple this way

I educate my two girls outside of the school system. This course is very useful for us. It compliments our current chosen maths programmes very nicely. I love it when passionate people share their skills online. It is very much appreciated, many thanks!!

Very well put together and given at a manageable speed. Please could we have a similar one on trigonometry/functions and calculus. Thanks, its heart-warming to see some teachers are willing to help people upgrade their arithmetic skills when broke.

I have joined Udemy at the beginning of this January and this is the first course I have ever taken AND completed here. For those who are new to the world of mathematics this course includes a solid introductory section, and for those who have an attention span of a toddler the lectures are kept very short – even the longest one is about 13-minute long. I used to find maths boring, but I think I actually like maths now. Highly recommended. Thank you Mr Cassidy for providing these superb lectures for free!

This course provides students with very useful tips and tricks to solve GCSE Maths in an efficient manner. In addition, it shows solution of several exam questions with clear instructions. Although the course is brief but it's comprehensive. It would have been very useful if course included assignments for further practice along with possible answers.
