The Benefits of Mathematics Tuition


  • For children who struggle with maths: tuition can provide the opportunity for concepts to be reinforced and consolidated; new concepts can be taught in a safe environment where pupils have the confidence to ask questions and get the support they need; and gaps in learning can be identified and addressed.


  • For pupils coasting in the middle groups: it provides the opportunity to learn more challenging concepts through focused teaching, enabling pupils to move up to higher groups where they can achieve their best.


  • Tuition provides the challenge needed to stretch the more confident mathematicians, and ensure they reach their maximum potential.


The Importance of Mathematics

Mathematics is a key part of everyday life and a fundamental part of many other subjects including science, technology, engineering and finance. It helps develop critical thinking skills such as problem solving, reasoning and conceptual understanding. More pragmatically, mathematics is a subject every child has to take at GCSE, and under the current rules must keep taking until they reach at least a Grade 4 at GCSE. It is also a key requirement for most further education qualifications and many jobs. It is therefore a subject we need to ensure our children achieve their best. 


The maths national curriculum is structured so that a range of different recurring concepts are taught and revisited periodically, getting steadily more challenging as pupils progress through the year groups. If there are gaps in learning in one year, when the same topic is revisited in following years at a more challenging level, children can quickly become very confused, begin to find maths overwhelming and lose confidence. Through tuition, gaps in knowledge can be identified and addressed, which may otherwise go unnoticed.
