Why do an Easter Revision course in Maths at Ashbourne?
The Maths Easter Revision courses will be taught by Eddie Morris, Barry Rhule and Chella Nathan. Eddie Morris has a BSc in Engineering and a BA and MA in Mathematics from the Open University. He has been at Ashbourne for ten years. Chella Nathan has a BSc in Mathematics and Physics from his native Sri Lanka and a B.Eng from London University. He has been teaching Mathematics and Physics for over twenty years. Dr Barry Rhule has a BSc in Mathematics and Physics from CNNA and a PhD in Physics from the University of London. He is a member of the London Mathematical Society and has been teaching Maths and Physics at Ashbourne for over ten years. Students will benefit from the experience and expertise of these teachers as well as the small group sizes and individual attention that every Ashbourne Easter Revision course provides.
