Teachers must open themselves up to new ways of delivering subjects like maths, it has been suggested.

Richard Marett, chief executive of, a leading provider of online maths tuition, said that although teachers have tried to make maths more interesting, there is still a great deal more to do.

Teaching the subject through new techniques such as interactive animation and unique tutoring methodology has delivered proven results and encouraged more children to take an interest in maths, he said.

In a recent poll carried out by the company, three in five people said they regret not paying more attention to maths during their schooling.

"I think what teachers and parents can do is to open themselves up to the sort of things that are now becoming available to teach maths, to engage children in maths," Mr Marrett added.
