What is Mathematics?

Mathematics is the study of topics such as number, structure, space and change. Through the use of abstraction and logic, mathematics developed from counting, calculation, measurement and the systematic study of the shapes and motions of physical objects. It is a core subject within both the Primary and Secondary National Curriculum and all students are expected to achieve at least a level 4 at GCSE, before they go on to further study, apprenticeships or to employment.

Primary Maths Tuition

Mathematics introduces young children to concepts, skills and thinking strategies that are essential in everyday life and support learning across the curriculum. It helps children make sense of the numbers, patterns and shapes they see in the world around them, offers ways of handling data in an increasingly digital world and makes a crucial contribution to their development as successful learners. Maths is assessed formally at the end of Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 with SATs, which focus on arithmeitc and reasoning skills. For SATs the expected level is set at 100, with scores ranging from 80 to 120. Any score above 100 is regarded as a pass and any under as a fail.

GCSE and IGCSE Maths Tuition

GCSE and IGCSE Exam Boards for Mathematics include AQA, Edexcel, Eduqas, OCR, WJEC and the CIE IGCSE. Pupils taking GCSE or IGCSE maths have to sit four-and-a-half hours of Exams at the end of Year 11. Pupils have to show their working in all Exam Papers to earn full marks. Two Exam Papers allow the use of calculators, one ninety minute Exam Paper does not. GCSE level 4 is equivalent to a low grade C and is considered the minimum passing grade. Schools would expect a pupil to achieve GCSE level 7, or above, to go on to study A level. The most able pupils can achieve GCSE Level 9, which is equivalent to A**, which is awarded to the top 4% of each cohort.

A-Level Maths Tuition

A-Level Mathematics is a highly regarded qualification, which develops analytical and logical thinking used in many fields of work, such as engineering, medicine, computing, and natural sciences.

Students are required to study a number of modules including Pure Mathematics, Statistics and Mechanics. The A-Level Examination comprises of three 2 hour exams taken a the end of the two year course in May. Grades are awarded from A* through to E.

A-Level Further Maths Tuition

Further Maths is an A-Level qualification which both broadens and deepens the mathematics covered in A-Level Mathematics. It is a separate A-Level, taken in addition to taking A-Level Mathematics and suitable for the most able students. Half of the content is based on Further Pure Mathematics and the remainder chosen from options including Mechanics, Statistics, Decision Mathematics or extra Further Pure. Further Maths is currently one of the fastest-growing of all subjects taught at A-Level, which reflects the fact that greater knowledge of Maths often results in higher university admission chances at Russell Group and Oxbridge Universities.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves a Maths tutor coming to your home in Princes Risborough to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the Maths tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the Maths tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the Maths tutor is required to travel to your home, in Princes Risborough. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your Maths tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your Maths tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of Maths tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group Maths tuition in Princes Risborough depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
