    To stand out (simple)


    I am a bit confused about saying the following idea:

    Background: Charlie is good at Maths. That is his favourite subject at school. Now I want to say that he stands out in/with Maths.

    1. Charlie stands out in/with Maths
    2. Charlie is notable for his Maths

    Are both correct? Actually I'd like to use 'stand out'. Do we use stand out with in, with in this way?

    'Charlie stands out in maths.'
    'Charlie excels in/at maths.'

    You don't need to capitalise 'maths' (AE 'math').
