What parents say...

“Joshua got his GCSE results today and I just wanted to let you know how he got on. He got an 8 in English Language and a 7 in English Literature, he has always struggled with English and wouldn’t of been able to achieve these amazing grades without yours and Adam’s help, if you could please let him know how Joshua done. So once again thank you for all the work you did with him.” Emily (parent) 2021

At the time of writing this testimonial, my daughter has had only 5 sessions and her confidence and ability has increased significantly!  (Now) she talks of enjoying maths and of her abilities in maths instead of her inabilities, participates more in maths lessons at school and is keen to do her maths homework, both from school and from the sessions.  As a parent I am thrilled that her confidence has grown significantly and would recommend I Love to Learn without hesitation.

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!
Charlotte's parents
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!
Mahera's Mum
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!
Mr S White
“Thanks for all your hard work with Rebecca Kivlin. She has started Milton Cross this week. Rebecca is in the top set for maths and science, and the second group for everything else. Without coming to Love to Learn she would never have achieved this.  Thanks”

Albie
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.
Jilly (Albie’s Mum)
“Dear Howard Thank you so much for all these lessons you’ve been giving me!  They really have improved my work at school and now I can put all your help to good use with my SATs.  Thank you so much for everything! From Lewis”
Lewis (student)
Prezton has done really well and we are very proud of his achievement so thank you all again
Mrs A Laborde
I was told at school that Harrison had fallen about 2 years behind in reading, writing and spelling. Harrison took to it straight away.  He has made fantastic progress and is meeting all his targets.  He loves the points and prizes that he collects for working so he comes out buzzing after every session!

Maths Tutoring

Portsmouth & Fareham’s Number 1 Tuition Centre for Maths: SATs, 11+ and GCSE

Numeracy skills are integral to a successful education. If your child is showing signs of struggle in maths then it’s time to act now before it’s too late.

If your child is behind in their maths class or they’re ahead and need pushing to help them succeed, maths tutoring is just what they need!

We can help with areas of weakness ranging from; poor times tables, weak mental maths, problems with arithmetic or difficulty with fractions and decimals.

The key is to design a maths tutoring programme that is appropriate for each child, not the class they happen to be in.   When they can do the work they will feel successful.  When they feel successful they will turn back on to maths and start to make progress again.

How we teach GCSE Maths

The new GCSE Maths exam is extra challenging.  How can we help students reach their targets?

Exam preparation cannot be rushed or left too late. There has been an increase in the difficulty of the GCSE exam recently, and it is important to have enough time to prepare carefully.

Each student will have different needs and different rates of learning.  Each week we will do a variety of tasks that are designed to push on knowledge in each area of maths tutoring.   If necessary we will of course have to go back to basics if we feel they need to be dealt with.  Once the foundation have been built we will be able to build the rest of the house!  Maths is one of those subjects that builds on itself topic by topic.

We always set maths tutoring homework that gives us excellent feedback about the rate of learning taking place.  We also set GCSE type questions regularly to make sure students are getting used to the format.

Finley was struggling with Maths at school when his mum got in touch. She said “It scared him that he was finding if so difficult. I had tried contacting tutors before but there’d been no response. I was really pleased when I spoke to someone and got a free assessment. He enjoys the lessons and has no problem now.”
Linda his tutors says,”He has become more confident and improved a great deal. He works hard and he want to do well each lesson.”
Finley has gone from strength to strength and now enjoys maths. He got certificates for most improved student in tutor group and year so school have certainly notice it!
