Quotable Maths: Pordage

"One of the endearing things about mathematicians is the extent to which they will go to avoid doing any real work."
- Matthew Pordage

(In case you want to know why I'm a tutor, this is as good an answer as any.)

Where do you teach?

I teach in my home in Abbotsbury Road, Weymouth.

It's a 15-minute walk from Weymouth station, and it's on bus routes 3, 8 and X53. On-road parking is available nearby.
