Coronavirus: Gosport teacher set to run free maths lessons online to keep teenagers learning
A PASSIONATE teacher aims to give children stability by offering free online maths lessons to keep young minds busy while schools are closed.
Set to launch next Monday are daily activities and lessons run by Danny Bohannan, a teacher from Gosport who is currently working in Bahrain.
Four years of teaching has seen the 27-year-old working in Portchester Community School, Brune Park and St Vincent College before heading out to the Middle East to teach.
As schools have been closed to most students across the country, Danny wanted to do something to help children and teenagers keep up with their maths education so they do not fall behind.
Danny said: ‘Maths is one of those subjects that people don’t like doing at school as it is - students need structure so I’m going to try to stick to this.
‘It’s just nice to be able to do something. The main thing I’m trying to stress is they’re going to go back to school and it’s whether they want to go back to school and play catch-up or go back where they left it.’
Starting next Monday, Danny's Maths-Hub will be offering a variety of free services until schools reopen.
Every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 5pm he will be hosting a free one-hour tutor session aimed at students in Year 9, 10 and 11, with Thursday and Friday reserved for a video with 10 questions aimed at Year 7 and 8.
Every day, Danny will post a GCSE question in the morning followed by a video with the answer in the evening, and at weekends he will be posting GCSE papers before going through the answers.
Every Friday evening, he aims to post a video signposting to free resources and each weekday he will post a one-minute revision video aimed at all students from Year 5 to Year 11.
Danny said: ‘It’s going to be very simple, the same time each day, so the kids have their little bit of structure.
‘I enjoy the teaching of the students, interacting with the children and knowing they’re making progress - that’s what I love.’
