Teaching an 8 year old is not the same as teaching an 18 year old. Maths teachers must be clearly classified by the age of their students. Sue Van Hattum makes no reference at all to the preferred age of her students. She will be more effective as a teacher if she states the preferred age of her students, and also if she can recommend another maths teacher when her students become too old for her. This is a principle which maths educationalists fail to understand.
