    Author Information
    Colin Beveridge holds a doctorate in mathematics from the University of St Andrews. He gave up a position as a researcher at Montana State University (working with NASA, among other projects) to become a full-time maths tutor, helping adults, GCSE, A-level and university students overcome their fear of maths - a position he finds 'far more enjoyable than real work'.
