Maths Tutoring

Portsmouth’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.

What parents say...

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 were super happy with your approach and B settled in so well. She looked forward to the tutoring and got a lot out of the sessions. Without a doubt her confidence has grown and I wouldn’t hesitate to use I Love to Learn again in the future. Many thanks, Cat
We are Super Happy!
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
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
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.

Prezton has done really well and we are very proud of his achievement so thank you all again
Mrs A Laborde
She is a quiet girl and I was concerned that her poor spelling was not being corrected.  When she saw the progress Bella was making in such a short time, I enrolled her for Maths as well!   It has transformed her thinking and she now has the self-esteem to ask questions in both numeracy and literacy.

GCSE Maths
Alex says ” I learned more in three months than my whole time in the maths classroom at school. I went from dreading it to feeling much better about being there.” This Summer he was overjoyed to find that he had gone from a Grade 2 in his mocks up to a Grade 4 (C) pass in his final exam.  
Alex
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.  
Samantha WildingParentPortsmouth
“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”
