Colin Watson is an Online Tutor at AAA Tutoring – Africa
I am a high school maths teacher living in the Western Cape, South Africa. Born in the UK, I first trained as an engineer and have experience in both heavy industry and business. I have taught and tutored many learners over the years both in the classroom and as an individual tutor.
I believe firmly that the essential foundations are laid before children become teenagers and that as the years progress it is important to know that we can all ‘do maths’ successfully. Steady work, lots of practice and clear understanding of how to do things, and why, is essential.
While school exams are clearly necessary, I am keen to nurture the idea that a broad understanding of maths is so useful in today’s world.
Married, I have grown up children; I love the outdoors, walking, as well as playing music.
Mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations, or algorithms: it is about understanding. –William Paul Thurston
I look forward to becoming your Online Math Tutor soon.
