GCSE Maths Preparation Tuition in Halifax with Study Write
The Study Write GCSE Maths course is designed to prepare for their GCSE exams
The Study Write GCSE Maths tuition programme is designed to prepare GCSE young people for their GCSE Maths exam at schools in Calderdale and its surrounding areas.
The course runs from September when your young person enters GCSE and is completed the week of the GCSE Maths exam.
In these sessions, a range of topics are covered within the GCSE curriculum. The programme follows the National Curriculum guidelines but focuses more on areas that students report year on year as being most challenging.
As Miss Terry states: ‘Since the beginning of this academic year the groups have focused on graphs, simultaneous equations, rearranging and solving equations, trigonometry, cosine and sine rule with further areas to be covered through the remainder of the year. The wide range of areas covered in just a few months, I believe, speaks to the efficacy of the programme and the benefits of small group tutoring’.
Due to the intimate setting of the tuition sessions, it is possible to tailor the subject at hand to the needs and requirements of the students. Towards the end of a topic, a discussion takes place to decide which areas are more relevant; topics are then able to be prioritised effectively to ensure each session is useful for each student.
At the end of every term, a formal assessment takes place whereby understanding and retention of the topics covered can be judged. This further informs the future teaching; any highlighted gaps in knowledge are then reviewed and refreshed until full understanding is achieved. This feedback is provided to both student and parent so that progress and learning can be assessed by all concerned.
In addition to strengthening young people’s academic skills, the Study Write GCSE sessions teach time management, organisation skills and how to excel under exam conditions. Using past papers, continually throughout the sessions, the young people are taught how to answer the exam questions successfully.
Study Write GCSE encourages young people to develop a positive work ethic and desire to succeed; the young people grow in confidence, knowledge and ability over the course of the programme. As a result, they feel prepared for the next step in their school journey.
