Why A Maths Tutor?

There can be many reasons why it could be a good idea to get a maths tutor. Three of the most common reasons I encounter with those considering maths tuition are:

Struggling with confidence in GCSE or A Level Maths.

This is by far the most common problem encountered by students. When they find a topic difficult but do not have the confidence to ask their Maths teacher for help, it can be a tough cycle to break. In this scenario, it is my job to build confidence. I will thoroughly work through the content with the student at the appropriate pace, filling any gaps in knowledge and, most importantly, building the confidence needed to apply the content to an exam scenario.

Tough transition between GCSE Maths and A Level Maths/A Level Further Maths.

The jump between GCSE Maths and A Level Maths is vast, and students underestimate how wide the gap is. For such students, it is imperative that their Maths tutor has the knowledge and experience to both supplement and help lead their journey through their A Level Maths and/or Further Maths studies.

There are, of course, many more reasons why you feel that maths tuition may be necessary, whether at Lower Secondary (KS3) Maths,  GCSE/iGCSE Level Maths and A Level Maths or Further Maths. Whatever your situation, I have the knowledge and experience to help.
