Individual GCSE Maths Tutoring

When you book an individual session, the tutor we introduce will start by assessing the student’s current knowledge by using our fantastic diagnostic quizzes, and build a profile of their strengths and areas for improvement. They will make a plan for how this improvement will take place, then put the plan into action.

The student can now go forward with renewed confidence and a rediscovered love of the subject, ready to tackle the challenges that lay ahead. The tutors we introduce all have up to date knowledge and experience of the different exam boards, meaning that when exam time rolls around, the student can spend time learning how to problem solve, and explain the maths they are doing, optimising performance in exams. For the student already achieving well, the tutor will push them to that next level with challenging rich tasks, designed to foster and promote mathematical curiosity, and equip them with the right attitude to use their maths at a higher level.

How can we help you achieve your goals?

As well as helping students keep up with the Maths they are currently studying at school, the tutors we introduce aim to achieve the following objectives within a GCSE maths tutoring session: 

  • Increase confidence – The tutor we introduce will find creative ways to explain mathematical concepts to students, helping overcome students barriers to learning and catering for any special educational needs the student may have.
  • Assess prior knowledge and fill in the gaps – All students have gaps in their knowledge somewhere, but most students are unaware of what these are, and it it’s human nature to shy away from topics we feel less confident in. Students will complete assessment tasks as part of their homework each week, which help the tutor to build a mathematical profile of their student and pinpoint the areas which need work. These areas will then be addressed in future sessions. The profile is always shared with the student to help increase their self awareness.
  • Promote good study habits and learn to revise effectively – Getting into good study habits as early as possible is key to achieving highly at GCSE. Regular tutoring sessions combined with a structured homework program helps to build a routine, and the success it brings for the student motivates them to do more. Before they know it, they’ve snowballed into having good routines for study and feeling the joy of achieving more
