Maths

Just as languages provide the building blocks and rules we need to communicate, Maths uses its own language to solve problems involving quantities like speed, time, space and forces. Studying Maths helps us to find patterns and evaluate behaviour. Practically, it underpins how we price items, establish economies and predict change.

At GCSE or A level, Maths encourages students to develop analytical, research and problem-solving skills. These skills help students to tackle scientific, mechanical or abstract problems, as well as everyday issues like planning projects and managing budgets. Needless to say, in the workplace, maths skills are in demand!

“From perseverance to problem-solving, Maths fosters a multitude of transferrable workplace skills.”

Our Approach

We teach students from primary school age to university level. For children who need extra support to develop their confidence, we have patient primary or secondary specialists on hand to help. For students with a passion for Maths, we have experienced GCSE, A level and University teachers to take them beyond the curriculum.

We conduct an initial assessment to understand your child’s strengths and weaknesses, and ensure our students have a good understanding of core concepts. This lays the foundations for more complex Maths topics so that students develop a detailed knowledge of their curriculum. As exams approach, our focus is on timed questions, data analysis, and exam technique.

Exam Boards

We have experienced teachers with knowledge of the following exam boards:

  • AQA
  • Edexcel GCSE
  • Edexcel IGCSE
  • OCR
  • International Baccalaureate

At A level, we also provide subject specialists for Cambridge Pre-U courses. We help tutors to stay up-to-date with curriculum changes and new grading systems. In addition to teaching, many of our tutors are also GCSE or A level examiners.

Wider Reading

We encourage students to have a wider appreciation of Maths beyond the national curriculum. Students considering a Maths undergraduate degree should be aware of relevant news stories, current affairs, and influential academic research.

Our tutors have recommended a selection of interesting resources below:

  • How can big data reshape political campaigns?
  • How can big data make public services more efficient?
  • How can Maths predict the spread of epidemics?
  • How do countries report epidemic statistics?
  • What are the best measures of making international comparisons?
