This unique, high quality system for learning and knowing your tables has been invented
and developed by Mr. Graham P. Woodward MBIM.MIIM.MIE.MIG.TechE.FTC.Prod.Des. A private
home tutor, author, tutor trainer and local radio broadcaster. He has been privately
tutoring school children in the Rossendale Valley in Lancashire for many years. In
addition to this he has trained many people nationwide from all walks of life to
become private home tutors in their own right.
Graham says “I initially created and devised my unique system (I am loathe to use
the word ‘game’ because of the seriousness of our situation) because as I visit children
to tutor them I find more and more that they do not know their times tables very
well. I strongly believe that times tables are still the basis for all future maths
knowledge as children progress into secondary school and eventually into the workplace’’.
As a busy Private Home Tutor visiting many children each week I am, like you, becoming
more worried about their underachievement in numeracy. I know that you will find
this ‘Know your’™ Times Tables system an enormous help in giving your child confidence
and ability in knowing their tables – and therefore improving their maths generally.
You will soon realise after using and experiencing this unique system that it has
been very carefully thought out and developed. It involves many connotations and
endless variations for you to use to get the best from each child, depending on their
ability and speed of learning.
Graham adds “in my experience of years of one-to-one tutoring children, most have
an alarmingly and worryingly short term memory problem, also a short attention span
for something that doesn’t immediately interest them. This boxed 380 piece system
‘Know Your’™ Times Tables, has been specifically developed to be different and to
keep children more interested than any other methods. When I visit the many children
I tutor and their parents I find that they actually enjoy using my system, and I
have had some truly amazing results with children of all ages and abilities. Some
parents of dyscalculia’s, dyslexic, aspergus and special needs children have become
quite emotional at their new found knowledge”.
Good Luck and ENJOY experiencing the success of your children actually knowing their
Times Tables at last!

Following his long and varied career in management Graham became involved in career
advice, training and recruitment, managing an executive recruitment company specialising
in business and technical appointments. This led to him lecturing in further education
colleges, teaching BTec and City and Guilds in engineering, mathematics and science.
He has written and marked final exam papers for both these institutions.
He has worked in many secondary schools, supporting statemented and special needs
children and also liasing with their parents. In 1992 he began to tutor children
individually in their own homes. This quickly became a lucrative occupation, prompting
the formation of his own company. Graham is in great demand, not only to tutor children
privately, but also to train people from all walks of life who wish to embark on
a new and rewarding career.

details. The new book, How To Start a Business As a Private Tutor, was published
