Ten-year-old maths prodigy turns to teaching pupils


Edward Wilson Primary School in West London has an unusual addition to their teaching staff - 10-year-old maths prodigy Dima, who has been wowing his fellow pupils with his number skills.

Reporters from Paddington Academy in Westminster meet Dima, who spoke no English when he moved from Ukraine to the UK just three-and-a-half years ago.

He has now taken over the role of maths teacher for younger pupils of the school during lunch breaks.

Students say they are impressed with the talented pupil's lessons, and teachers are happy to have him helping out.
