The Encyclopedia Britannica describes mathematics as the science of structure, order, and relation that has evolved from elemental practices of counting, measuring, and describing the shapes of objects. Doctor Robert H. Lewis, Professor of Mathematics at Fordham University describes maths as not about answers but about process. Sounds scary but it does not have to be!

Maths is often described by teachers and tutors as the building of a brick wall; if a few bricks are missing the whole thing can fall down. A good teacher or tutor should be able to spot these missing bricks on initial assessment then put a program together that fills the gaps. Maths it is a subject that is used in every walk of life and can be key to unlocking an exciting and challenging future for your child.

  1. People say

    • I think there are definite benefits to using a Maths Tutor if your child is struggling or they are coming up to exams. It is not always possible to go back through specific topics with children as the class needs to move forward with the set curriculum. This is where a good tutor comes in. Good research is essential.

      Rose, Teacher (Learning support assistant)
    • My concerns arose with my eldest, who, although it appears is doing well and is on the top table for maths, seemed to have some problems with his basic mathematic skills, so I decided to get him assessed. It turned out he had some holes in his knowledge which, if not addressed, could have had a real impact in the future. I was really surprised at what the holes were and decided the cost of a tutor was worth it and have signed all 3 children up.

      Fiona, Parent (Mum of Two)
    • I don't find maths that hard but I struggle with it sometimes. My tutor, Sarah, has helped me to focus and come up with new ways of finding solutions that my teacher does not have the time to do as we have a big class. I don't have lessons with her all the time but hope Mum and Dad let me have her when I get to exam time.

      Erin, Child Learner (Aged 12)
    • I love my tutor he does funny games that help me count, I didn't like maths before.

      Ava, Child Learner (Aged 5)
    • I used to really enjoy maths but in the last year have found some bits tricky. After talking to my Mum she decided to get me a tutor. I was really scared at first but love it now as I am beginning to understand the new stuff we do and I feel more confident.
