GCSE Maths Tuition

Are you just starting Year 11? Could you use some help with maths?
Contact me to discuss your tuition!

You may want ongoing support with GCSE Maths, or just a few sessions of exam preparation. You may need support understanding topics and answering questions, or you may be aiming for Grade 9 and need to focus only on the most challenging questions.  Either way tuition will be tailored to the work you need to cover and the way you learn best.

Tuition may include:

  • Finding out how you learn best
  • Understanding topics
  • Calculations (add, subtract, multiply, divide)
  • Fractions, decimals, percentages
  • Ratio and proportion
  • Going over work covered in class
  • Algebra
  • Geometry
  • Catching up on work missed
  • Identifying the right method for the question
  • Problem-solving strategies, especially important on the new syllabus
  • Showing your working out
  • Non-calculator methods
  • Calculator shortcuts
  • Making links between topics
  • Analysing and tackling the hardest questions

In addition, preparation for exams may include:

  • Revision lessons on specific topics
  • Making sense of exam questions
  • Using your revision time efficiently
  • Exam strategies
  • Writing answers to the * questions
  • Analysing your answers to help gain more marks
  • Working under pressure of time and exam conditions
