About Sara

Hello and welcome to Starfish Maths Patreon page! Glad you came!

I'm Sara - a Maths teacher/tutor and artist, passionate about young people's mental health and well-being. It's been my sheer delight to work with people from all ages, backgrounds and abilities to uncover their confidence and joy in Maths. However, academic pressure is rising in schools everywhere and Maths can often be a subject that causes stress and anxiety. 

A few years ago I decided to start making videos to share my teaching and make it more accessible for those who might benefit. I named it "Starfish Maths" - inspired by the Starfish story, which I've only recently found out has been adapted into a children's film called "Sara and the Starfish" - love that! The story is basically about a young boy picking up washed up starfish on the beach and throwing them back in to the sea, and when challenged that he could never save them all, replied "No, but I can save this one!", and picked up one more. The idea struck me that all the work of making videos would be worth it if they helped just one person.

I've been delighted that my videos have helped more than one person... and I love and cherish every comment telling me so. My subscribers have just exceeded the magical 1000 mark, but it will still take a long time before I see any money from ads. Which is why I had the idea to open a Patron page, as life gets busy and bills need paying. An income from this project will mean I can devote more time to it, which I would love to do!

So if you have enjoyed my channel, or found the videos helpful, or simply want to support my work, then maybe you would like to pick up a starfish and become a patron!
