**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.
