Maths – KUWTC

“Mum’s originally from Pakistan. She’s been coming to keep up with me in English and Maths so she can help me with my homework. Since the course, every day from 6-7 we do maths. She starts off easy and makes it harder. She’s improved. She didn’t know what 8 squared was but she went to maths class and now she does.”
