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.

Case Study

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!



What parents say...

Alex had been tested in Year 4 for dyslexia and he came out mildly dyslexic for spelling.  He has a poor short term memory, and we were concerned about him going to Senior School with these problems. Alex started off a bit ‘anti’, but now he agrees that his writing is better and the improvement has been commented on by teachers.  We are so pleased he is getting professional help, and are especially pleased that he now see the benefit and is self-motivated. He now is now asking for help with his Maths too!
Mrs D Wilson
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
She loves coming, and sees that it helps her at school.  Her scores are going up all the time and recently she got three class awards in three weeks, she says this is ‘Thanks to you.
Mrs C Walker
Dylan had always struggled with very poor handwriting.  After only a few months teachers can now read his writing and he feels more confident.  His coordination problems have been recognised “Thanks to your suggestion,” and this has helped at school.   It has made a big difference to his schooling as he enjoys it much more now.

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)
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.”

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 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!
