Manish SalianHost: Mr. Salian has 21 years of experience in teaching Maths, with 5 years in the online teaching space. As well as teaching KS3 and KS4 Maths he has taught students for some of the toughest competitive exams around the world, including GRE, GMAT, SAT, Maths Olympiad and UKMT. His unique style of teaching includes relating the concepts to real world in order to understand difficult concepts in a practical and easy manner. With Mr Salian's classes you can follow his philosophy 'to overcome the fear of maths is the first step towards mastering the subject.' So come join us and fall in love with Maths!

In this class students will firstly learn how to use Pythagoras’ Theorem to calculate unknown figures in right-angled triangles. They will then go on to learn how to apply this knowledge to real life situations, for example, calculating distances to travel.

This is a great class for students who already have a basic understanding of Pythagoras’ Theorem but also for those who are covering it for the first time. This is a very common topic that comes up across many parts of the Maths syllabus so a solid understanding at this stage will make it easier for students to progress, building on this understanding, further down the line.
