Maths is fun

“The GCSE Maths Tutors Are Great.”

T’anna came to us as her mum had seen us on Facebook and decided to call.  T’anna, now in year 10, had always struggled with her maths.   In four short months however, she has improved so much that, the school want to put her up for the Higher GCSE paper!!  Kerry, T’anna’s mum says ” She has come on leaps and bounds, I am so pleased with the progress. The tutors are great! It’s a convenient location and the assessment is easy to arrange.”

Albie had been diagnosed with mild dyslexia and his reading age was around 2 years behind!  The standard in private school is often higher, so we were worried about the Entrance Exams.  Soon after he enrolled he started making rapid progress.  The school say he is now Level  5 in literacy and the teacher can see a lot of difference.  His reading age has shot up and the gaps in maths have been filled in and he has caught up amazingly quickly. It has definitely, definitely made a difference and I have recommended the centre to my friends.

I would like to thank you for the enthusiastic way in which you have helped Vicky gain confidence in her abilities to learn.  She has been a different child since coming to you and has a more positive view now!

We brought him to the centre in Year 6 because he just had no idea about maths.  This year won the ‘Most Improved in Maths’ certificate for his year.  He also came top of his class in 2 out of 3 maths exams.  Coming to here is the best thing we ever did!

We are so pleased that Mahera has got a FULL BURSARY for the local girl’s high school in Portsmouth.  She has been to your centre before for tuition but we came back in November so she could get ready for the exams.   She has worked so hard and Linda has really encouraged her in her writing!  Thanks so much!

Thank you so much for helping me with my maths!  I have come along much more in maths lessons at school! Hopefully, depending on whether I need help when I go to Secondary School I might come back again. (I hope so)  Thank you again. Madison.
Mrs H Breen
I would like to thank you for everything that you have done, and also pass on my gratitude from Lottie because she has learnt she has really benefited from and her confidence in maths has vastly improve, so much so that she now tells me that she looks forward to maths class at school!

Firstly, I would like to thank yourselves and your staff for all your help and dedication to helping my daughter Saoirse with her maths.  She has shown an improvement with her confidence at attempting to handle the mathematics she is give by her school.  And I feel this is due to the staff at your centre, she had a very rough year in Year 4, with her very unsympathetic teacher and you all helped her through that.  For that I’m very grateful.

5 Top Reasons to Get a Tutor

  1. Confidence

The number one reason to get a tutor is to build a child’s confidence.  As we all know, anyone who loses confidence in their abilities often switches off and stops learning.  Maybe the teacher is moving too fast, or maybe it is a concept that they don’t get first time.  Alternatively, they may start getting things wrong which re-enforces a downward spiral.

When your child says ‘I can’t do maths,’ or ‘I hate writing,’ it might be a time to think about getting extra help.

  1. Frustration or Hating School

For whatever reason, some children’s frustration with learning leads to tears and anger.  Homework or classwork might be a problem.  If a child is finding it difficult to read for example, they are not going to be able to access most of the others subjects either.  If they are struggling in maths, they may not be able to do the homework that is given to the rest of the class.

Finding a good tutor who can diagnose the educational causes can solve a problem for the whole family.

  1. Moving House, School, Family Changes

Any change, even if it is for the better, is stressful.  An increase in stress will always reduce a child’s ability to learn for a period of time.  Therefore, changes such as moving house, country, school or family changes often lead to gaps forming in a child’s educational development.  If they happen to be essential building blocks, this can develop into a problems later on.

  1. Preparing for Big School

If pupils are behind, in any significant area, at the end of Primary it may be difficult to catch up at the Secondary level.  Transition from Primary to Secondary school is a major change in teaching styles.  In Primary Schools, pupils are all in one class, taught mostly by a single teacher.  Secondary school, although more stimulating, can lead to pupils forgetting or not practicing skills learned at the Primary level.  The challenge is greater, the number of teachers is greater, but therefore, so is the difficulty in catching up.

A tutor can help a child, either before Secondary School, or outside the Secondary classroom deal with these issues.

  1. Exam Preparation

Getting ready for exams is always a good time to get a little extra help.  11+ Common Entrance Assessments, SATs and GCSEs require a lot of extra work and are important milestones for our children’s future.  If parents and children want to do their best it is often worth investing in specialist help to give that boost in performance that may be needed.

Really experienced tutors will have helped many students through their exams and will be know what is required.
