My name is Catherine Eadle and I founded the Dyscalculia Network in 2019. I hold a BEd (Hons) in Teaching from Oxford University. I trained and worked with the late Dorian Yeo (leading expert, author and lecturer in teaching pupils with maths difficulties) at Emerson House School and hold the Certificate in the Teaching of Mathematics for Specific Learning Difficulties (2003). Dorian Yeo's work inspired me to become a specialist Dyscalculia maths teacher and I have been solely teaching maths for 17 years. I have worked at both boys and girls independent schools as a teacher and Head of Maths.
In 2017 I opened ‘The Little Maths Room’ which is a specialist tutoring service in Oxfordshire, UK supporting pupils with Dyscalculia and additional needs. As my reputation as an experienced Dyscalculia tutor grew I realised that I was answering enquires from hundreds of teachers, students and parents from all over the UK (and further afield); there simply wasn’t the information and resources available in one place online for those dealing with Dyscalculia.

Testimonial from a client
Both my daughter and my son have been having lessons with Cat for a few years now. She was strongly recommended to me by a very well respected head of a prestigious Oxford school, when I was desperate to help my daughter who had just been diagnosed as dyslexic and was struggling so badly with maths and finding life at school and so many other things difficult as a result. It was the best recommendation I have ever had. Cat is an incredibly talented, able, professional and highly dedicated and passionate maths teacher, who not only understands her expert subject and how it should be taught in the most effective and engaging way tailored to each individual child and their difficulties and ability, but who completely understands children and how to communicate and connect with them in a way that very few people can. She is a perfectionist, and cares so much about the children she teaches, and that is clearly her motivation to put so much effort and dedication into the lessons and teaching experience that she gives them. I brought my son to Cat when he started to struggle with maths and she very quickly identified his learning difficulties and as a result everything he had been struggling with made sense. Both my children have made incredible progress with maths as a result of Cat&amp;#039;s intervention, as acknowledged by their school teachers. Perhaps more importantly, she has as a consequence, given them confidence in all aspects of their learning, confidence in themselves as people and a love and excitement for maths that they would never have otherwise been able to enjoy. The move by Cat to online lessons due to the current epidemic has been impressive. She was well ahead of everyone else, and before other organisations/providers had even started thinking about it, she had already set up, properly organised and tested her online teaching lessons. As a result, despite worries as a parent in trying something new with lessons, it worked perfectly. Excellent teaching and communication as usual and the children loved being able to see Cat online and draw silly pictures on the same bit paper as Cat if they won a maths game against her! I can safely say that Cat has been the single person who has most affected my children&amp;#039;s education. The rapid growth and confidence in their maths skills has had a massive and wide ranging impact on their lives at school and outside it, as it has brought them a sense of stability, confidence and happiness in their school/educational lives. She gives them encouragement in a way that very few others can. Like other parents though, I am reluctant to share her with others! It is no wonder that the children absolutely love her to bits.
