I claim that, after graduating in Maths, I have never stopped learning and/or passing on knowledge. Almost all my mainstream employment has been in numerical/financial areas, requiring both flexibility and accuracy.
My skills have been "borrowed" ever since my A-level year, mostly on a one-to-one basis, at all academic levels and in many settings - both work and domestically.
There is no worse way of teaching than to run in the same set of grooves regardless of students' comprehension, doubly so if this is being done face-to-face, and about 50 times so for Maths. Having suffered in this way myself, I take great care to step back and re-think my approach at every point, to impart both the answer and understanding.
