There's lots of what I want to say about maths. Question is, will you dare to read it?

Hi there! It's Veronika, Your Maths Tutor.

It's been just a couple of month since I've finally started my own Instagram page Your Maths Tutor full of funny maths memes and some other maths scribbles, tricks and so on.

I very much appreciate the enormous interest in my Insta page and I'm very much grateful for every single follower I have there. It shows me that so many of you find maths interesting or funny or just like to interact with maths in your free time - that's absolutely fabulous!

On the other hand, the huge interest in my Instagram activities started bringing way too many peculiar messages that I just can't keep answering all over every single time one lands in my inbox.

So, I decided to give you some brief guide on the most common questions and my likely answer to it. If you've gotten to this page through the link I've sent you in the message, please read through as your answer is somewhere here =)

This saves me time so I can do more maths stuff as I'm a busy bee - and I'm sure you all appreciate it more than if I'd be buried under a ton of messages answering repeatedly to every single one.

Whether I tutor in the lesson or give homework or let students practice for their exams, I always give them answers (well, if I have them, of course). What is it good for? Let me explain...

So what was it today with maths? Oh yes, I needed to find out how long will it take me to get to my new client. But let's start from the beginning...
