I like to dispel the myth that Maths is boring! I used to be a LSA and taught Maths in small groups for 5 years with pupils aged 10-16. I am now a stay at home mum. I like a hands on style of teaching and my resources reflect that. They are activities to aid the learning of Maths and help to make it fun to learn.

This is so that both you and the pupil can see the progression of their mental math.
