Since being introduced to the multiplication game, children in my class have used
it both individually and in small groups. The most important feature is that the
game is fun to play and children engage with it easily. There are various ways in
which it can be used to enhance the children's understanding of their multiplication
tables, and within just a few short sessions of the game being used by children of
varying abilities, it was noticeable that they had shown a marked improvement in
reciting and understanding their multiplication tables. This in turn has helped them
greatly in other areas of numeracy. Simple, fun and amazingly effective.

This game is a fantastic, unique and fun way for children to learn their times tables.
My son loves playing board games, but with this he is learning at the same time.
I would highly recommend it to all parents.

“Wow”, I just had to put it down in writing how unbelievable the new ‘Know Your’™
Times Tables game/learning aid is. My son Cole took to this simple but effective
system within one hour of opening the box and enjoyed it so much that he would even
play it with his friends when they came around to play. I had never seen this system
before, and was amazed at how different it was to anything else I had tried in an
effort to help Cole along with his times tables. This system is fantastic and really
helped with his school tables tests. I would wholeheartedly recommend this to children
of all ages and abilities, it really is a revelation.
Mr. Sean Travers - Father
Such a simple but effective activity to teach children their times tables. My son
Alexander, aged 9 years, thought that it was a fun way to learn.
Sue Hicks - Mum and Special Support Assistant
I hadn’t seen anything else like it as a learning aid and a game. My son Adam enjoyed
the two dimensional numbers that took multiplication sums off the page and brought
them to life. He soon picked up the concept of matching missing numbers into sums.
His younger sister Georgia saw the ‘game’ and wanted to try it herself. They both
enjoyed it so much they had no idea they were revising their times tables, they were
simply having fun.
Mrs. L. Houldershaw - Mother
I love playing with this game and it has taught me all my times tables. This is a
shame in some ways because I really liked learning them this way because it’s fun!
Alice Hopkinson - age 11
I would just like to say how much I enjoy using ‘Know Your’™ Times Tables. I was
finding learning my tables really hard but this made it fun!!! It has really helped
me with my schoolwork and my maths has really improved. Thank you.
Lilli-Ella Kelleher - age 10
Quick results from Jordan my 7 year old son. He thinks he’s just playing a card game,
but doing it the ‘Know Your’™ way he is actually knowing and retaining his tables
before any of his friends - amazing!!
Brad McShean - Father
Unbelievably effective system. Isabelle loves to do her tables this way instead of
boring charts, writing them down or even singing them out! It even gets her off the
computer! Thank you Mr. Woodward.
Mrs. L. Tomlinson - Mum
I bought ‘Know Your’™ Times Tables for my daughters Holly, Zoe and Hayley who have
had problems learning their times tables, since buying this product their knowledge
of times tables has improved no end, within a couple of hours they could rhyme off
most of their tables. Even their teachers have noticed the improvement in their knowledge
and confidence when it comes to their times tables. This is a very simple ‘game’,
but very effective. Fantastic!
Mrs. Paula Kenyon - Mother
I found your times table box set unbelievable, my daughter Megan learnt her 7 times
tables in less than 1 hour, but most of all she really enjoyed doing them. I was
absolutely mesmerised how the system works, in my opinion this box set should be
used in all primary schools.
John McTernan - Father
I would just like to say what an excellent, simple, but effective way to learn your
times tables! My daughter Lilli was having difficulty learning her tables and I was
amazed at the improvement after just a few weeks. One major plus point was how much
she enjoyed using the system, it makes learning fun!! I would definitely recommend
it and can’t wait for the other titles.
Justine Kelleher - Chairperson - PTA
Amazing! Hannah has Asperger’s Syndrome and has struggled for years with her times
tables. What a touching moment when after only 1 hour she had mastered her 7 times
tables, all the others soon followed! A fantastic, unique system. Highly recommended!!
Karen Lawrence - Mum
My daughter has loved learning her tables this way. It’s really visual and there
are numerous ways to use it to teach and test times tables. It makes a change from
tapes and posters and has helped my child see the patterns and understand how you
can use tables for division and missing number type of maths. She knows all her tables
really well, and has retained them quickly and easily. It’s a really clever system
but easy to use. Great for visual learners especially.
Miriam Hopkinson - Teacher of the Deaf
This fantastic and unique system of times tables has helped my 10 year old son, Jack,
immensely with his school tables tests. It made the task enjoyable and fun whilst
instilling a sense of confidence in self. The simple, yet effective method of this
system allowed him to master his tables within the hour. Incredible!!!
Gill Callaghan - Mum
I have recently been given a free demonstration of a totally unique method of teaching
maths to children. I have now acquired one of the systems from Mr. Woodward and demonstrated
it to several adults and children. The feedback has been very positive with the
effect being that most children pick up their multiplication and division a lot earlier
and quicker than the conventional methods used in schools. If anyone would like to
contact me personally to discuss the system further give me a ring on 01964 614967.
I have that much confidence in this system that I am delighted to recommend it.
Geoff Harriman - Private Home Tutor, Withernsea, Hull
What an amazing product! My three sons 8 years, 11 years and 13 years all found it
fantastic to use. They soon knew their tables after just a couple of sessions and
actually want to get it out without being asked! All parents should have this system
to help their children.

Knowing her tables helps Hannah achieve success
A TEENAGER targeted by her school to achieve an F in her GCSE maths astounded everyone
by getting a C.
Delighted Karen Lawrence attributes her daughter Hannah's success to her private
tutor. When she got her results Hannah immediately called her dad Alan, closely followed
by tutor from Bacup Graham Woodward.
Karen said: "Hannah has always struggled with maths since she was in primary school
and especially her times tables. Because it is used in such a lot of maths it was
a real stumbling block for her.
"She was in set seven out of eight at Tottington High School and her target for GCSE
maths was an F."
For 18 months private tutor Graham, from Churchtown Crescent, worked with Hannah
and her confidence in the subject grew.
He introduced her to his Know Your Times Tables games and she went from an inability
to work out multiplication without using her fingers to being able to visualise the
numbers by using his game of tactile cards.
Within 45 minutes she was not only able to work out her six times table but could
also answer the sums out of sequence.
Hannah is now at Myerscough College's centre at Crow Wood in Burnley on a B-Tec Level
2 in Horse Care.
Karen said: "Because Graham was teaching Hannah on a one-to-one basis he built up
her confidence. He gave her a notebook so anytime she didn't understand something
in maths she could write it down and he would explain it at her next tutorial.
"We used to have times tables on the wall, we had an electronic times table game
and used various other methods. We even had them in the car but nothing worked for
Hannah until Graham introduced the game."
Hannah, 16, , from Holthouse Road, Tottington, was on a school action plan and did
not feel confident to speak out in class, but she always worked hard on her studies.
"She thought she was going to leave with no qualifications," said Karen. "Graham
was always positive about whatever she had done and I am so proud of her." Hannah
also gained a B in her GCSE religious studies, a pass in ICT, a C in science and
a merit in BTEC Countryside and Environment (worth 2 GCSEs)
She said: "I think the maths dept were shocked at school when I told them what results
I had got.
"I am really enjoying my course at Myerscough and I would like to either be a riding
instructor or learn equine massage."
Graham has been a private tutor for 20 years and developed the Know Your game in
response to difficulties his pupils were exhibiting when it came to learning the
He said: "Children learn in different ways, but my unique times tables game has had
amazing successes especially with youngsters who have been struggling at school to
follow the traditional rote method of learning by repetition.
"We are 27th in the world's numeracy tables which is shocking. That is why I developed
Graham has written a book on how to be a private tutor and also trains tutors. To
