Get Private Tuition in Maths from one of our specialists
Maths is a core subject that many students strugle with. Research has shown that people with good grades in Maths will go on to earn 7% more by age 30. Private tutoring in Maths can be the best way to improve Maths skills and our Maths tutors are among the best in their local areas. They include Lecturers, PhD holders, Accountants and more. They are able to tutor Maths for the 11+, GCSE, A Level (including Further Maths) and University Maths. They also encourage students to take on Maths challenges, boosting their confidence.
A strong result in A Level/IB Maths is needed for key subjects like Physics, Engineering and Computer Science. Maths is also a complimentary subject for students in Biology and Life Sciences. In these fields, a solid understanding of statistics is essential to succeed at higher levels. To gain entry onto A Level/IB Maths a minimum of a B is needed in IGCSE/GCSE Maths. However, much of the initial work will be of an A/A* standard. Therefore, it is important that a student should start their tuition as early as possible. Contact us today to see if we have a specialist Maths tutor near you.
GCSE/IGCSE Maths is always the highest requested subject for private tuition. Frequently, students come across a difficult topic which they ignore. What they do not realise, is that Maths is modular, so it is built up in steps. To get past a B grade, students will need to have strong fundamental skills. This is where our tutors come in. Drawing upon their experience and skills, they can provide bespoke tutorials to help them fill in the gaps and push them up to the A/A* standard. Often, tutors cover multiple subjects, such as Chemistry and Physics as these are all interlinked.
Our tutors are equipped to handle any syllabus, either for the GCSEs or IGCSEs. They also tutor Further Maths and the Free Standing Maths Qualification (FSMQ). Tutorials are based around getting a student to understand a concept and then developing further into answers questions. The final step is exam preparation, where tutors go through problem sheets and past paper questions, assessing their weak points and bringing them up to an A/A* standard.
In A Level Maths, students will be introduced to applied Maths for the first time. These consist of Statistics, Mechanics and Decision Maths. IB Maths includes elements from all three, and has the scope to push students much further. The entry requirements for STEM courses usually include one of the top two grades for Maths. This is because Universities expect high standards of Maths from incoming students. Many students are opting to take Further Maths, both in A Level and IB. This gives them a wider base of knowledge and prepares them for University. A good tutor should be able to cover the core syllabus, as well as test/entrance exam preparation, advising on UCAS applications and helping with University choices.
Our specialist Maths Tutors are prepared to handle Maths and Further Maths for A Level and IB students. They are also able to handle other qualifications, such as AP Calculus and Pre-U Maths. Students can also be prepared for STEP tests, other entrance exams and Maths challenges. For A Level, tutorials focus on tackling problems and answering extended questions. Past papers will also be tackled in the run up to exams.
Maths is taught in many different STEM courses in University. These include Physics and Engineering, which focus on calculus. Students studying life sciences may also study Maths, with a focus on Statistics. Our University specialists have a track record of working with students at all stages of their degree, from foundation year students to Masters level students.
We offer a highly specialised service for University. Many of our tutors hold advanced degrees and several are lecturers in Mathematics and Engineering. They are able to provide tuition to both Undergraduates and Postgraduates. We frequently deal with Engineering students who need a Maths to help them through their course, especially if they have not taken A Levels. Please get in touch with us to find out more.
