Good maths teachers are so important. People feel ashamed if they have difficulty with reading and writing, but it's somehow 'okay' to be bad at maths and science because they're 'hard'. Sure, not everyone has a natural aptitude, but they are no harder than achieving a good level of literacy. And teachers have a lot to do with that attitude, unfortunately.
If you've got any questions, let us know! I try and find several ways of explaining things ... for me, the proof that I understand something is if I can teach it, and I have my own way of helping myself understand something. I'll put it into my own language, so to speak - describing stuff with 'thingy' and 'this bit has to do that so the other bit can eat it up' - and then put it into the correct terms. I'm also really picky about being precise with your language, because in science and maths each word has such a distinct meaning that if you waffle you'll only confuse yourself and others.
